It is hard to believe that the first academic quarter is behind us and we are heading into the final month of the fall afternoon program.
A special thanks to Colette Finley for speaking at the first middle school coffee. Ms. Finley informed us about software you can install on your devices that allows your screen to adapt to the time of day. If interested, you can download it or find more information on the website…..https://justgetflux.com/.
We would also like to thank the parents who attended the coffee and signed up to volunteer. We encourage those of you who have not had the opportunity to volunteer to do so online. There are still many ways to help out and get involved in the Nobles community.
When we are able to re-schedule the Middle School Parents Social, we will let you know. For now, you will find a list of important dates below.

November 19 - One of the highlights of the Middle School experience at Nobles is the annual Pie Drive. It is an important community builder where every Middle School child participates and it is also a great way for parents to volunteer and get involved at Nobles. The Pie Drive is a community service event that brings students, parents and teachers together to assemble hundreds of apple pies for Thanksgiving. Approximately 160 pies will be donated to the Single Parent Outreach Center in Boston and the Dedham Food Pantry. Approximately 200 more pies will be sold to the Nobles community.
This year’s proceeds will support the Kliptown Youth Program (KYP) located in Kliptown, South Africa. The organization's mission is to provide opportunities that will enable young people to rise out of poverty. Every other year, including this spring, Nobles travels with a group of middle school students to visit and work with our friends at KYP.
Please consider getting involved in this important event at Nobles by volunteering your time on Nov. 19.
Donated ingredients must be dropped off to the Middle School Forum no later than Tuesday, November 17.You can also contact one of the Pie Drive 2015 Coordinators directly to volunteer or donate ingredients:
