Welcome to the 2010-'11 school year! Whether you are a returning family or new to Nobles, there is a lot to look forward to in the coming months. We are your Middle School Parent Reps and are responsible for keeping you informed of what’s going on in the Middle School and at Nobles. We will keep you informed of all the important events that will take place this year (including school meetings, volunteer opportunities and social events) through the Nobles Parent E-Newsletter, which you will receive via e-mail, and is also accessible through the Nobles website.
We are also responsible for helping to coordinate the many volunteer opportunities available to parents at Nobles. (Click here for the Middle School Volunteer Form.) You can also access the MS Volunteer Form in the password-protected Parents' Section of the website, along with other all-school volunteer opportunities under the tab “Volunteer at Nobles.” Parent participation is strongly encouraged and is also a great way for both new and returning parents to meet other families.

Please review with your MS student the “Middle School Discipline Procedure” and John Gifford’s July letter, which contains some useful "nuts and bolts" for the beginning of school. The “Unofficial Guide to Nobles” is also a very helpful tool to review. It is accessible on the Nobles website in the password-protected parents section in the “Parent Association Corner.”
We look forward to seeing returning parents and meeting new parents in September. Please contact us with any questions you may have regarding the above dates or life in the Nobles MS.
