Happy early fall!
We hope you have all settled into the school routine and were able to enjoy some of the PA events in September. We had a great turnout at the Parent Social as well as our first PA meeting. If you weren’t able to attend the meeting, you can read the minutes on the Nobles website under the Parents’ Association tab.
October promises to be an eventful month for the PA. Please come to the Nobles Yard Sale on Friday, October 2, and Saturday, October 3. This is a fun event for Nobles and the Dedham community, and the proceeds will be donated to our wonderful Achieve program.
Our not to be missed second PA meeting is on Wednesday, October 14 at 8:15 a.m. in the Castle Library. Michael Denning will be our featured speaker. Michael will speak to us about his first year in his new role of Head of the Upper School as well as “What Nobles is… and isn’t.” Michael is an amazing speaker and it is a treat to have him, so don’t miss out.
In addition to our PA activities, please add these important dates to your calendar:
Oct. 9 - Multicultural Fair, 3:00 – 6:00 p.m., in the MAC
Oct. 16 - Friday Night Lights, 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. The girls’ varsity soccer and boys’ varsity football teams take on Rivers
We’d like to introduce our new “did you know” section that will display some information regarding the sustainability efforts at Nobles. Look out for them in the upcoming Friday Emails and Parent Newsletters!
Did you know…nearly half of all bottled water is reprocessed tap water, sold at prices up to 3,000 times higher than consumers pay for tap water. Nobles has filtered water dispensers at a number of drinking fountains on campus! Please keep using your refillable water bottles!
We wish you an engaging and busy month!
