From the Co-Chairs: Barbara Ito & Polly Maroni
A lot goes on within the greater Nobles community every day, not only for our children, but for parents as well. We hope that everyone has managed to spend some time at school and experience a part of this community. At this time of both giving thanks and celebrating the holiday season, we would like to recognize all of the hard work done by parents this fall to bring our community together.
In the past few months, parents have raised money for Achieve, hosted parent coffees, socials, a book group, a community service trip to Cradles to Crayons, volunteered in the admissions department, organized student surprise lunches, and a thank you for the faculty and staff. If you haven’t become as involved as you may have wanted, please don’t hesitate to volunteer, host, organize or attend any of the various events that happen every week. There is no better way to gain a fresh perspective and new understanding about the place where your children spend so much time.
On another note, there is no PA meeting in December. However, on December 10, we invite you to attend the Middle School Arts Night from 5:30-6:45 p.m. and then the Choral Concert from 7-9 p.m. in Lawrence Auditorium. Below are the major PA get-togethers in January. Keep an eye out for more in the coming weeks!
Wednesday, January 13: Our next PA meeting. Michael Denning, Colette Finley, Gia Batty and Sara Masucci will speak about creating a curriculum for the range of students at Nobles. The meeting will be in the Castle Library at 8 am.
Thursday, January 14: Lunch at the castle! We invite you all to come and sample the food that your children are always talking about. The cost will be $5 and we promise a fun and delicious experience. Look for a sign-up link in the weekly emails.
Lastly, we would like to mention The Green Team. This committee is composed of faculty, students and parents who address potential environmental sustainability and stewardship issues around Nobles. We would love to have more parent involvement so please let us know if you would be interested in joining!
We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season with family and friends. As always, if you have any questions, comments, or simply want to chat do not hesitate to reach out to us!
