It is hard to believe that the first academic quarter is behind us and we are heading into the final month of the fall Afternoon Program.

The fall parent social was a great success and a wonderful way to connect with new families and reconnect with “old” friends. We extend a special thanks to Matt Burek, Mike Ryan and all the staff at FLIK who once again provided excellent food, drink and service.

We would like to thank all of the parents who attended the first middle school coffee and signed up to volunteer.  We would also like to encourage those of you who have not had the opportunity to volunteer to do so online. There are still many ways to help out and get involved in the Nobles community.

Once again November is a very busy month. The Middle School Nobles/Milton Games @ Nobles are on Friday, Nov. 8. Please refer to for times and field locations. This event will mark the end of the fall after school program.

Milton Games for Varsity & Junior Varsity teams @ Nobles are on Saturday, Nov. 9!  Join us for a cup of hot chocolate or chowder during the Nobles vs. Milton games, hosted by Nobles' Office of Graduate Affairs and Milton's Alumni Office.

Parent/advisor meetings are Nov.12-13. Please contact your child’s advisor to schedule a time to meet. 

The fall Dance Concert is Thursday, Nov.14 in Lawrence Auditorium with two performances at 3:30pm and 7pm.

Nobles Night in the Castle is on Saturday, Nov. 16! Please contact Katherine Minevitz to RSVP at

One of the highlights of the Middle School experience at Nobles is the annual Pie Drive on Wednesday, Nov. 20. It is an important community builder where every Middle School child participates, and it is also a great way for parents to volunteer and get involved at Nobles. The Pie Drive is a community service event that brings students, parents and teachers together to assemble hundreds of apple pies for Thanksgiving. Approximately 100 pies will be donated to the Single Parent Outreach Center in Boston. 200 or more pies will be sold to the Nobles community; this year’s proceeds will support Noble and Greenough Afternoon Program Food Initiative #AllDawgsGottaEat. This initiative is supporting local food pantries in our area.

Please consider getting involved in this important event at Nobles by volunteering your time on Nov. 20 from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. You can help by donating supplies or by ordering some of these delicious pies! 

If you are interested in volunteering for the Pie Drive, please sign up online.

If you have any connections to local orchards or supermarkets, please let one of the Pie Drive Coordinators know! Donated items must be dropped off to the Middle School Forum no later than Friday, Nov. 15.

If you would like to donate ingredients, sign up on the electronic ingredient board.

You can also contact one of the Pie Drive 2013 Coordinators directly to volunteer or donate ingredients:

Holly Bonomo -

Nathalie Ducrest -

Leigh Poole -

Thank you for all your support with this worthwhile endeavor.

If you would like to show your support by ordering a pie, you can place order online. 

Lastly, on Nov. 25, there is a Faculty Meeting in Morrison Forum starting at 3:15 p.m. All middle school students will be dismissed at 2:40 p.m. A Parent-proctored study hall will be held in the Library Loft until 5:00 p.m.

Nov. 27 - 30 is Thanksgiving Break. School will be closed and will reopen on Monday Dec. 2.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
