Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter May 2011


Overseas Opportunities For Nobles by Bob Henderson, Head of School

What's in a Name? The MPA Becomes the APC by Steven Tejada, Dean of Diversity Initiatives

The Multicultural Parents' Association will soon be known by a new name. Starting this summer, the group will be known as the ALANA Parents' Committee (APC).


A Nobles Parents' Guide to the End of the School Year by Ben Snyder, Head of Upper School

For most of my Parents' E-Newsletter articles I tend to focus on themes of education or issues that kids, parents and schools face. As we head down the home stretch of the school year, however, it is important to get really practical about what the final weeks entail.


Bussey NEW Newsletter Don't Miss the Game Changers by Bill Bussey, Provost

I was reading the New York Times (Saturday, April 23) in a Starbuck’s the other day and came across a front page story about a doctor who had practiced family medicine for 32 years and couldn’t give his practice away.

From the PA Co-Chairs

One of the busiest months of the school year, May provides ample opportunities to enjoy the Nobles community and to celebrate our children's accomplishments.
