Welcome back from the holidays! We hope your family found some time to relax and enjoy the break. The new year has begun and it is time for our kids to get back to their education.

Maryanne is making steady progress but unfortunately she will remain out of school until mid-February. We miss her greatly. This newsletter submission was written late because she wasn’t here to remind us. Maryanne is phenomenal at keeping everyone informed and on schedule. We’ll all have to work a bit harder to keep ourselves informed about school happenings while she is away. We miss her dearly and wish her a speedy recovery.

A tradition at the both the Middle School and the Upper School is for families of the Nobles faculty and students to participate in a community service program on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This is a wonderful opportunity to work alongside your children on a service project. You can bring friends or siblings to work with you as well. Please register at the following link: On Jan. 16, everyone will meet in the Middle School Forum at 8 a.m. to get their assignments for the day. Afterwards they will go to their various sites until 2 or 3 p.m.

On the morning of Jan. 18, there is a PA meeting. Michael Denning, director of college counseling, will be the guest speaker. It isn’t time for our kids to worry about college, but it is great opportunity to hear what we will soon be encountering. It is also a good time to get a cup of coffee and meet with other parents.

Nobles is hosting a special event for Middle School parents the evening of Jan. 18. Maria Trozzi, M.Ed. will speak to parents about raising resilient children. Trozzi is the assistant professor of pediatrics at BU School of Medicine. Her speeches include topics such as helping our children deal with life disappointments, helping children deal with too many choices and whether parents should push or not push. Trozzi is a well-respected speaker and the event should be very interesting and informative. Please write if you’d like to attend—space is limited.

  • Thurs., Jan. 12: Parent Book Club at 8 a.m. in the MAC conference room
