From the PA Co-Chairs
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 several class coffees.
October promises to be eventful as well. Please mark your calendars for Fri., Oct. 12 and Sat., Oct. 13, which is the Nobles Yard Sale. This is a fun event for Nobles and the Dedham community and the proceeds fund Nobles scholarships. Start your fall cleaning now by dropping off your gently used items at the Omni Rink beginning Oct. 1. If you have time, please volunteer an hour or two during set-up (Oct. 8–11) or during the actual event. Contact Brooke Sandford at email@example.com to sign up.
An online silent auction and raffle benefiting Achieve will coincide with the 2012 Nobles Yard Sale. Achieve is a tuition-free, self-funded educational program serving low-income middle school children happening right here on the Nobles campus. Some fabulous items have been donated by the generous Nobles community and a $1,000 gift certificate to the Apple store for an I-Phone 5 will be the raffle prize for one lucky winner! Use this link to preview and bid on auction items: http://auction.nobles.edu/webid/index.php. Raffle tickets are on sale NOW. To purchase them, visit: http://nobilis.nobles.edu/raffle. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any technology issues. Thank you for supporting Achieve!
You won’t want to miss our second PA meeting on Thurs., Oct. 11, at 8 a.m. in the Castle Library. Michael Turner, Director of the Music Program, will be our featured speaker. Michael has been at Nobles for 24 years and will have much to say about this vibrant program and what it offers to Nobles students. Immediately following our meeting we will move to the Omni Rink to help set up for the Yard Sale and we would appreciate any extra time you may have to help out!
On Sat., Oct. 6, and Sat., Oct. 27, the PA will be grilling hamburgers and selling goodies during the Nobles home sporting events. Come by for lunch or a snack, and if you would like to volunteer, please contact email@example.com. It is a fun way to meet people!
In addition to our PA activities, please add these important school dates to your calendar:
Oct. 5—Multcultural Fair, 2:30 to 6 p.m., in the MAC.
Oct. 5—Friday Night Lights, 7 to 9 p.m. The girls’ varsity soccer team takes on Worcester Academy on their home field under the lights.
Oct 17—Parent Education Night, 7 to 8:30 p.m., in Lawrence Auditorium. The evening will feature Dr. Joanne Deak, a leading expert on adolescent development.
We wish you an engaging and busy month!
