Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter September 2011

What's New at www.nobles.edu



We're sure you noticed—everything is new about www.nobles.edu! After more than a year of research, focus groups, brainstorming and hard work, the school is proud to present the new and improved Nobles website. The goal is for this site to do more than just tell the story of Noble and Greenough School; we want to show people what makes this place special. The stories, photos and videos featured on the public pages showcase the depth of our programs and personality of our community. And, while there's no way to learn everything there is to know about Nobles just from visiting the website, we hope www.nobles.edu helps encourage people to want to learn more.

A lot of planning and thought went into each section of the site (and each section will continue to evolve over the course of the website's first year!). One of the most robust and resourceful sections of the web is undoubtedly the Nobles Community. Located at the far right of the navigation bar, the password-protected Nobles Community pages will be your go-to spot for personalized information. Whether you are a parent, student, faculty or staff member, or graduate, once you log on to the Nobles Communtiy page you will find helpful information, tools and resources, schedules and notices tailored to your needs. 

We know there will be questions and suggestions throughout the year, and especially during the opening weeks of school. Please don't hesitate to contact us. If you have trouble logging on, email help@nobles.edu and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. If you have other comments or suggestions, please contact Julie Guptill, Director of Digital Communication and Assistant Director of Communications, at Julie_Guptill@nobles.edu.

Throughout the year, this monthly E-Newsletter will highlight new or different features from www.nobles.edu. In the meantime, we encourage you to explore the site and all that it has to offer.

This Month's Top Tips

1. Keeping Track of the Calendar: You'll hear this directive often—log in! In order to see everything going on at Nobles, both school-wide and specific to you, you must log in first. Once you are logged in, you will have access to "Featured Events," "My Sports" and "My Events" tabs in the Community page and full access to the Calendar, located at the top of any page.
2. Newsworthy Notes: One of the hallmarks of www.nobles.edu has always been its dynamic "coverage" of day-to-day events. You can still find news stories online. Check out large image, general interest homepage stories (which will refresh every few weeks) and the Featured News (located at the bottom right of the homepage). Also, click the "News" section at the top of any page for up-to-the-minute news, photo and video galleries, Parents Newsletters and online versions of the Nobles Bulletin. Still looking for more? There's also a "News" tab on your communtiy page.
3. On the Playing Fields: The Athletics web page is a fan favorite. Click on Athletics for program overviews, partnerships, team information, videos, photo galleries and more. Also, be sure to check out the "Nobles @ the Next Level" to follow the college athletic careers of recent Nobles graduates.
4. Report an Absence/Tardy/Dismissal: When you log in and visit the Parents Community Page, click the "About Me" section. Next to each of your children's name will be links to his/her schedule, class list, etc. There is also a link to submit an absence, tardy or early dismissal. If you know ahead of time that your child will be away from school, you can schedule the submission for a later date.
