Although the end of the academic year is near, so many great events at Nobles will take place during these last few weeks of school.  Listed below are important dates on the Nobles calendar you won’t want to miss. 

One of the month's highlights is the Class V Solar Car Races on May 15.  Watching these creations speed, cruise or inexplicably sputter to a stop on the tennis courts is great fun for the whole school (parents, too!)  Graduation Day is May 31, and is a required event for all students.  The Middle School has its own celebration with the Step Up Ceremony for Class V Students on June 6, which marks their transition from the Middle to Upper School next year.  After the week of exams is over, and the teachers are busy with Comment Writing Day, the Middle School students can blow off steam at the Canobie Lake Park Outing on June 7, which is a parent-led event.

As you all are aware, Nobles is a busy place with many worthwhile and interesting events each and every month.  We would like to thank all of you for your help with these various Nobles events throughout the year.  We have a great community of parents who are always willing to help, and we really appreciate all that you do to make these occasions a success.
