Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter March 2011

From the Parents' Association Co-Chairs



In February, it was our great fortune to have two opportunities to come together with other Nobles parents to learn more about Nobles and the wider community.

First, we would like to thank School Historian Joyce Eldridge, Archivist Isa Schaff and Assistant Head of School John Gifford, for their lesson in Nobles history and tour of the Castle. We look forward to seeing Isa’s latest exhibit of artifacts in the Schmidt lobby and reading Joyce’s sequel to Richard T. Flood’s The Story of Noble and Greenough School 1866-1966.

Second, we would like to express or appreciation to PA Events Coordinator, Jill Ellison, for arranging a fun and educational trip to the DeCordova Museum of Art in Lincoln. Whether they toured the sculpture park in snowshoes, or admired the indoor galleries, parents experienced one of the Boston area’s treasures.

Looking ahead, please join Upper School Head Ben Snyder and Head of College Counseling Michael Denning in the Morrison Forum on the evening of March 1, from 7-8:30 p.m., for Curriculum Planning night. Course selection and planning for the Upper School years will be discussed while looking forward to the college process. This meeting is designed to be most helpful to parents of Class III and Class IV students.

Due to break, there will not be a PA meeting in March. However, mark your calendars to attend the PA meeting on Wednesday, April 6, in the Castle Library from 8:15-9:30 a.m. This meeting will feature two legendary teachers, Dick Baker and Tim Carey. Come and see why year after year, students claim that classes taught by these two men comprise some of their fondest and most vivid memories of Nobles.

Enjoy Spring Break!
