Dear parents,

Despite only five more weeks of classes left in the school year, the Nobles' calendar is filled with many great events for both students and parents.  Below are a few highlights and then a detailed listing of important dates you won’t want to miss.

One of May's highlights is the Class V Solar Car Races and all school BBQ on May 14.  Cheering the students' creations as they race to glory on the tennis courts is great fun for the whole school and worth taking time out of your day to come watch.  We are looking for volunteer bakers to make treats for a PA bake sale that day.  A sign up link will come in the next Wednesday email.

The Middle School has a Step Up Ceremony at 3:15 p.m. on June 5. All middle school students are invited as well as parents/guardians of students in Class V. The event marks Class V students’ transition from the Middle to Upper School next year. 

After the week of exams is over, and the teachers are busy with Comment Writing Day, the Middle School students are invited to blow off steam at the Canobie Lake Park Outing on June 6, which is a parent-led event--more information to come in the Wednesday emails.

These are just a few of the highlights--please review the calendar below.   As the Middle School class representatives, we would like to thank all of you for your help throughout the year.  We have a great community of parents and really appreciate all you have done to make each of these special occasions a success.
