It is hard to believe that the first academic quarter is behind us and we are heading into the final month of the fall Afternoon Program.

We would like to thank all of the parents who attended the first Middle School coffee that was held in the Castle. It was great to meet new people and hear about the Achieve program.

The fall parent socials are also a great way to socialize with other Middle School parents. We extend a special thanks to Jill and Dave Ellison for hosting a very successful Class VI social. The Class V Parent Social is coming up on Sat., Nov. 3, from 7-10 p.m. at the home of Lynda and Kevin Macdonald. 

One of the highlights of the Middle School experience at Nobles is the annual Pie Drive on Wed., Nov. 14. 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 Nobles. The Pie Drive is a community service event bringing students, parents and teachers together to assemble hundreds of apple pies for Thanksgiving. Approximately 100 pies will be donated to the Single Parent Outreach Center in Boston and 200 or more will be sold to the Nobles community, the proceeds of which will go to Kliptown Youth Program in South Africa. Please consider getting involved in this important event at Nobles by volunteering your time on Nov.14 at either 1-3 p.m. or 3-5 p.m., donating supplies or ordering some of these delicious pies!  Parents, if you are interested in volunteering for the Pie Drive, please contact Pie Drive 2012 Coordinators, Sherri Athanasia at or 781-974-3735, or Anne London at or 781-239-9991.

Need donated ingredients:  If you would like to donate ingredients please email Sherri or Anne directly. We seem particularly in need of apples as the weather has led to slim harvests. If you have any connections to local orchards/supermarkets, please let Sherri or Ann know! The items must be dropped off to the Middle School Forum no later than Fri., Nov. 9. Thank you for all your support with this worthwhile endeavor. To place your pie drive order please go to
