November 2011: Middle School Notes

It is hard to believe the first quarter is over and Thanksgiving will soon be here. We hope everyone has enjoyed the various fall activities at Nobles; it was great to see so many of you at the Middle School Parents Coffee and Middle School Social in October. Thank you to all the parents who brought the delicious desserts and to Samuel Adams, Boston Beer Company for their generous donation to the social.

November is a month of transitioning from the first to second quarter and finishing the fall sports season. The finale of fall sports at Nobles is the Nobles/Milton Weekend on November 11-12. This is a long-standing tradition (rivalry) between the two schools and is highly anticipated by both students and parents alike. Consider joining the fun and supporting Nobles sports teams by attending this full weekend of festivities and sporting events.

One of the highlights of the Middle School experience at Nobles is the annual Pie Drive on November 17 and 18. It is an important community builder that every Middle School child participates in and is also a great way for parents to volunteer and get involved at their child’s school. The Pie Drive is a communtiy service event which involves students and parents assembling hundreds of apple pies for Thanksgiving. Approximately 100 pies will be donated to the Single Parent Family Outreach Center in Boston and 200 or more will be sold to the Nobles community, the proceeds of which will go to Rosie’s Place. Please consider getting involved in this important event at Nobles by volunteering your time on either November 17 or 18, from 2:30-5 p.m., donating supplies or ordering some of these delicious pies! Parents, if you are interested in volunteering for the Pie Drive, please contact Parent Coordinators Elizabeth Clarke via email at or Sherri Athanasia at To order a pie please go to:
