Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter October 2013

Middle School Parents Reps (from left to right): Lori Giandomenico, Cindy Lawry, Julie Calllaghan, and Toni Gordon

We hope the school year has gotten off to a great start for you and your children!  It was nice to see so many of you at the annual Parents’ Association Fall Social, Back-to-School Night and the first PA meeting.   Many thanks to those who worked so tirelessly on all these great events!

October is a busy month in the Middle School, filled with sporting events, student and parent social activities, and many opportunities for parents to get involved.

The Middle School Parent Fall Social is tonight, Oct. 4, 7:00 - 10:00 p.m. If you have not already RSVP'd. The invitation and RSVP link are available by logging into the Nobles website and clicking on the calendar. We’d love to see as many of you there as possible! Catch up with old friends, and make some new friends—let’s kick off a great five or six years together!

Then, later in the month, please join us for the Middle School Coffee on Oct. 30, 8:00 a.m. at the Castle.  The coffee is a low-key chance to chat with fellow Middle School parents. For new “Sixie” parents, it’s the perfect time to mingle and ask any questions, big or small, of the Class V parents. We will also have sign-up sheets for volunteer opportunities throughout the year for anyone who is interested.

Thank you to those of you who have already volunteered to help this year.  If you haven’t done so, the upcoming Nobles Yard Sale provides an easy (and fun!) way to help.  This year the Yard Sale will run on Oct. 18-19.  In addition to helping the school, it really is a terrific opportunity to get to know many different parents, across all grades, as you move, sort and sell the myriad of donations. Whether you can spare an hour or a day, it will be much appreciated.

All sports teams will be in full swing in October.  Not to be missed will be the Middle School Social/Friday Night Lights on Oct. 25.  The Nobles football team will take on Roxbury Latin under the lights on Burr Field. Go Bulldogs! 

Also note, on game days, some Middle School teams (soccer, field hockey, etc.) surprise each other during the school day with secret “psych gifts” (e.g., candy bar, small baked good or other treats). Make sure to ask your child if she or he has a secret psych buddy.

If you end up taking any photos at a school event or on the sidelines, we would be grateful if you would share some with us. Please email .jpg files or links to files to Toni Gordon at  John Gifford and Maryanne MacDonald might include submitted photos in a future newsletter or the Yearbook. Students will enjoy seeing submitted photos on the Morrison Forum flat screen.

Below you will find a comprehensive list of important dates for October. We look forward to seeing you at many of these exciting events!  Please let us know if we can provide any additional information or answer any questions.
