It is hard to believe that the winter Afternoon Programs have come to an end and we are nearing the end of the third academic quarter. February in the Middle School was highlighted by a successful run of the Middle School play, The Yellow Boat, and a very well attended and informative MS parent coffee with John Gifford and Collette Finley. March is a busy month for the Middle School with many events and only two weeks of classes. The Class V students will travel to Washington, D.C., on March 5, for a three-day trip to enrich their civics studies. Their trip includes visits to the Supreme Court, U.S. Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery and numerous museums, monuments and memorials.  During the same time, Class VI students will participate in Empathy Week at Nobles, during which they will be immersed in curriculum and events to give them a better understanding of the issues around poverty, hunger and need.

The following is an outline of Middle School events for March:

  • March 1: MS Magic Bus—Students will travel with faculty chaperones to a local destination for an afternoon of fun, from 2:45-5 p.m. Pick up at the Middle School.
