Without a doubt, much has changed this school year. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to extended school closures and a need for social distancing, creating challenges we have never experienced before in our community.
Still, this school year was one for the record books! Our students achieved new milestones, won awards and were recognized statewide and even nationally for their achievements. They learned through hands-on lessons, research projects and group activities, while taking part in festivals, athletic events and musical and theater performances.
While this spring has not gone to plan for our community or our nation, we hope you can take a few minutes to look back at what has been a special 2019-20 school year!
In addition, all 2020 NAFCS graduation ceremonies have been rescheduled for Saturday, July 18. Floyd Central's ceremony will take place at 10 a.m., while New Albany's will begin at 1 p.m. You can find more detail regarding graduation plans on the district's website.

Greetings to all our members of NAFC Nation! We hope you are staying safe and well during these difficult times.
As you know, NAFC Nation is a fantastic source of information about events, reunions and celebrations for all NAFC alumni. The best way for us to get even more former students, friends and community members connected and involved is for our current members to share our information with their contacts.
If you have a moment, please consider sharing NAFC Nation in any of the following ways:
- Social media: Social media is the fastest way for sharing our information to your contacts. One quick post, and your entire following is suddenly alerted to our community! It also makes it easy for anyone who sees your post to then share it with their contacts, as well.
- Email: If you want to take more of a targeted approach, you can send emails out to specific individuals who you suspect will be interested in all that NAFC Alumni Nation has to offer. This will also help you reach people who might not be active on social media.
- Conversation: Feel free to bring up NAFC Nation in casual conversations with your fellow alums! An actual conversation will generate more interest, as you’re able to explain to them more thoroughly what you have found beneficial about being a member and what you enjoy the most. You can also answer any questions they have.
- Letters to local newspapers: Consider sending in letters to local newspapers with information about NAFC Nation. This will put the word out to people who you might not otherwise be connected with, but would be interested in becoming a member.
We are so grateful for any assistance you can provide in helping us spread the word! Thank you and be well.
