Dear Class III Parents and Friends,
We hope everyone has had a fun and relaxing summer and that you are getting to enjoy these last precious weeks of August with your kids. We know it is hard to believe but the return to Nobles and the new school year is just around the corner as September beckons!
We are writing to introduce ourselves as your Class III Parent Representatives, and we look forward to working with all of you this year. Sophomore year is an exciting year for our students and also a year where expectations are raised as the routines of Nobles are assumed to have been mastered. Our role is to hopefully be a conduit of information from the school to your home regarding important dates and announcements. We’ll also try to continue to build our class community by scheduling a number of parent social opportunities throughout the year.
To kick things off, we’ve listed at the bottom of this email some important all school and Class III dates for the first couple months of the coming year. Several of these events rely on parent volunteers to make them successful, and we enthusiastically encourage you to get involved. Any amount of your time, input, help is truly appreciated! We will have sign-up sheets at our Class III parent coffee in the Castle on September 28th (8-9:30 a.m.).
You will soon also be able to sign up on the Nobles website, by logging in at www.nobles.edu and accessing the volunteer forms, which can be found under the Class III Parent Section after clicking on Nobles Community.
As we all know, September is a very busy time at Nobles. If you haven’t already done so, we also encourage you to bookmark the Nobles website and check the calendar often. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Friday weekly email updates from Judith Merritt, which are a great way to keep current on school happenings, announcements and schedule changes.
We hope to meet all you personally this fall at our various school wide and class events, but in the meantime please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about back to school and the upcoming year.
All our best for these last couple weeks of summer vacation. We are looking forward to a great year together!
