Happy Fall! We hope that everyone is settling into the school routine. September was a busy month for the PA, with a very successful all-school parents' social and many class coffees.
This month promises to be eventful as well. Please mark your calendars for Thursday, October 14, and Friday, October 15, for the Nobles Yard Sale. This is a fun event for the Nobles and Dedham community. So, start your fall cleaning now by dropping off your gently-used items at the Omni Rink beginning October 3. If you have time, please volunteer an hour or two during set-up or during the actual event. While you are there volunteering, you will have fun getting to know other Nobles parents! We expect it to be another successful Yard Sale benefiting Nobles Scholarships and Faculty Enrichment.
You won’t want to miss our second PA meeting on Thursday, October 13, at 8 a.m., in the MAC Upper Lobby. Dean of Students, Erika Guy, will be introducing the Nobles Student Life team. The team includes our school counselors and learning specialists. The morning will offer a great chance to learn more about what they do and put names to faces. Immediately following our meeting we will move to the Omni Rink to begin setting up for the Yard Sale and we would appreciate any extra time you may have to come over and help out!
Our next PA parent outing is on Wednesday, October 19, right after drop-off. We will be walking the back trails of Nobles (approximately 3.2 miles). You are welcome to do any or all of the trek. Please meet at the MAC for coffee before we begin our expedition.
On Saturday, October 15, and Saturday, October 22, the PA will be grilling hamburgers and selling goodies during the Nobles home sporting events. Come by for lunch, or if you would like to volunteer please contact email@example.com. Help behind the stand, work the grills; either way, it’s a fun way to meet people!
Last, but not least—if you are wondering what the "Dawg Pound" does, or want to avoid the "five ways to unintentionally embarrass your child," please see the Unofficial Guide to Nobles! Log into the website and find it in the "Odds & Ends" of the Parents' Association section. It is an information source written for parents by the PA on all the “not so obvious” at Nobles. You are bound to learn at least one new thing your children won’t tell you!
We wish you a good month!
