From the PA Co-Chairs
Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a relaxing break. Fri. evening, Jan. 6, is the annual Nobles/Cotting School basketball game, being held this year at the Cotting School. It is the fourth annual contest between Nobles girls’ varsity basketball and Cotting School players. It is a great event with food, fun and lots of action on the court. We hope you will come and cheer on the players!
Our next PA meeting will be on Wed., Jan. 18. Our guest will be Michael Denning, director of college counseling. Please come and hear Michael speak about the college process and answer any questions you might have. It will be a very interesting and informative meeting for all.
Looking ahead to February, please save the following dates:
Fri., Feb. 3, for our very first parent gallery talk in the Foster Gallery. We are excited to have Rania Matar, a current Nobles parent and photographer, come speak about her upcoming exhibit, "A Girl and Her Room." Rania has collaborated with girls from both the United States and the Middle East to make photographs that depict the girls in their bedrooms. In her own words, “This project is about teenage girls and young women at a transitional time of their lives, alone in the privacy of their own personal space and surroundings: their bedroom, a womb within the outside world.” Please come for coffee to hear Rania speak at 8 a.m. Also, please mark your calendars for our monthly PA meeting on Feb. 15. Bill Bussey, provost, English teacher and ombudsman, will talk about tone and culture at Nobles. It's always a great meeting when Bill shares his insight and humor!
All the best,
Pam Notman and Carolyn Harthun
Parents’ Association Co-Chairs
