From the PA Co-Chairs

Happy New Year!

We hope everyone had a relaxing break. Fri. evening, Jan. 10, is the annual Nobles/Cotting School basketball game, being held this year at the Cotting School. It is the sixth annual contest between Nobles girls’ varsity basketball and Cotting School players. It is a great event with food, fun and lots of action on the court. We hope you will come and cheer on the players!

Our next PA meeting will be on Tuesday, Jan. 14 from 8:00-9:30 a.m., in the Castle Library. Our guest will be Michael Denning, director of college counseling. Please come and hear Michael speak about the college process and answer any questions you might have. It will
be a very interesting and informative meeting for all.

Please join us for the next PA outing event. On Thurs. Jan. 23 from 8-10:00 a.m.
in the Castle Library we will have 3 guests: a nutritionist, dermatologist, and a
home organizer who will inform and entertain us. This is sure to be a fun morning,
and great reinforcement for those New Year’s resolutions!

The second parent book club meeting is on Tues, Jan. 28 in the Castle Dining Room. Continuing the theme of adolescent wellness, we will read Top Dog: the Science of Winning and Losing by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. Dinner is offered between 6-7pm. The kitchen closes at 7pm, and the book discussion will follow from 7-8:30pm. Please R.s.v.p. by Fri., Jan. 24, if you would like to join us for dinner ($5.00 chit -- there is no charge for attending the book discussion only). We hope to see you there!

Come watch the student-directed plays on Jan. 30 and 31—they are a terrific display of Nobles talent.
