Congratulations, Class of 2015
Seventeenth-century poet Anne Bradstreet declared, “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” Most New Englanders can relate and, on May 29—closing an academic year marked by a barrage of blizzards and a slow-coming spring—Nobles graduated 124 members of the Class of 2015 under sunny skies.
Art Street and Holi
Every year, students look forward to Art Street, a time to try their hand at all things artistic, while benefiting numerous non-profit organizations. This year's fundraising efforts also included aid for the victims of the earthquakes in Nepal, as part of a larger effort that has raised more than $1,300 to date.
18th Annual Freeman Legacy Dinner
May 20th marked the 18th Annual Freeman Legacy Dinner, honoring beloved longtime arts faculty member Bob Freeman and his wife Betty. While at Nobles, they provided support for all students and and also were steadfast supporters of the school's increasing diversity.
Solar Car Race 2015
On May 13—as one of the final rites of passage in the middle school—Class V students took their science skills to the races for the 16th annual solar car race day. Working in pairs, students developed strategies for using the sun to power miniature cars made of a variety of materials, including soda cans, wire, Styrofoam and even Band-Aids.
May 8 and 9 brought more than 500 graduates and guests to campus. From the Morrison Athletic Center to the Castle to classrooms and fields, graduates reconnected with each other and with faculty members who helped shape their lives.
