Welcome to the 2013-2014 academic year!
As always, the beginning of a new school year is an exciting time for students, faculty and parents. Just as the kids are getting settled into their classes and the routines on campus, Nobles and the Parent Association will be offering many activities for parents to connect and get involved, including social events and a broad range of volunteer opportunities.
It is a busy time and there are many events you won’t want to miss. Keeping track of all that’s happening at Nobles is greatly helped by the weekly Wednesday Middle School email. You will receive this email from Maryanne MacDonald, and it includes notices and upcoming calendar items. In addition, you will receive this monthly e-newsletter, which includes notes from the faculty, PA chairs and class parent representatives.
As your Middle School parent reps, we will be organizing our parent events as well as coordinating volunteer opportunities. Not only is your help incredibly important, you will find volunteering a great way to meet other parents, teachers and classmates of your children. Please take a minute to head to the password-protected Parents’ Section of the Nobles’ website to see a listing of volunteer events.
You can sign up to volunteer online at the Nobles website. Click on “Nobles Community,” and click "Parents" to log in. Click “Volunteer at Nobles” in the left hand navigation bar—there is a Middle School page as well as school-wide pages.
Below are the Middle School calendar highlights for September. You may also want to mark two additional events on your calendar: the Parent/Faculty Night on Tuesday, October 1, featuring author Wendy Mogul, and the Middle School Parent Social on the evening of Friday, October 4, in the Castle.
