From the PA Co-Chairs
We trust that everyone is settling into the routine of this new school year. September was a busy month for the PA, with a very successful all-school parents’ social, a great kickoff meeting, several individual class events, and the introduction of a Monday morning PA walking group.
October promises to be eventful as well. Please mark your calendars for the Nobles Yard Sale on Fri., Oct. 18 and Sat., Oct. 19. This is a fun event for Nobles and the Dedham community, and the proceeds fund Nobles scholarships. Start your fall cleaning now by dropping off your gently used items at the Omni Rink beginning Oct. 7. If you have time, please volunteer an hour or two during set-up (Oct. 15-17) or during the actual event. Contact Joyce Fai at email@example.com to sign up.
Our not to be missed second PA meeting is on Thurs., Oct. 17, at 8:00 a.m. in the Omni Hockey Rink Warming Room. Dr. Rick Wilson, Nobles’ school psychologist, will be our featured speaker.
Rick has been at Nobles since 2007 and will discuss how to help families better manage adolescent stress as well as giving some ideas to help all people in the family manage stress more effectively. Immediately following our meeting, we will move into the Omni Rink to help set up for the Yard Sale. We would appreciate any extra time you may have to help out!
On Sat., Sept. 28, and Sat., Oct. 19, the PA will be grilling hamburgers and selling goodies during the Nobles home sporting events. Come by for lunch or a snack. If you would like to volunteer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . It is a fun way to meet people!
