Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter April 2013

From Community Service

If you're anything like us, you are already looking at the summer family calendar with increasing panic and leaping into planning mode. You are on the web searching for opportunities for your children, while you balance vacation options, work schedules, camping trips, sports skill-building challenges and service hour requirements. In an effort to help you search for idea, an agency called TeenLife has compiled a website to help you look for summer programs for your son or daughter. They sent us this helpful compendium in the hopes that you might hear about programs unknown to you before. The best part about the site is that you can sort it before viewing, by type: gender, age, or location. (Be sure and check out the community service ideas). Please see below for the website, and their note to you. This is a great resource, and we hope it can help you to find just the right way for your child to enjoy the summer hours and be productive at the same time.

Linda or I will also be glad to answer any questions you might have about what counts for our service hours at Nobles. Here's the quick version: service hours will count if 1) the work is for a non-profit that regularly uses volunteers to help with their work 2) the child is not paid, and 3) the hours are recorded by an on-site supervisor who can attest to the quality and type of work. If you wonder if any particular program or site will fulfill the service hour requirement, please do not hesitate to give either Linda or me a call: 781-320-7262/7261.


Summer is around the corner! Introducing, the largest online resource for summer programs and other enrichment opportunities for students in grades 7-12. Simply go to and start searching.
