Middle School Parent Reps
November has been a busy month! The Middle School Pie Drive was once again a huge success! Students assembled hundreds of pies in one afternoon with pies donated to The Single Parent Family Outreach Center in Boston and The Dedham Food Pantry. Proceeds will benefit: The Kliptown Youth Program (KYP) located in Kliptown, South Africa. Many thanks to Emily Denning, Carla Higgins, Isabelle Roy, and Dave Camacho for co-chairing this event. Thank you as well to all of the volunteers and everyone who participated, donated items and purchased pies.
November also brought us the athletic adventures of Nobles-Milton weekend and Nobles Night which was an elegant and festive gathering of the Nobles community.
December will bring more activity with the Middle School Visual Arts Presentation in the Morrison Forum where Class VI will present their “Who Am I?” videos on December 10 at 5:30 p.m. This cross-disciplinary project asks our seventh graders to explore their identity through narrative writing, poetry, imagery and audio. The Visual Arts opening will feature work made by ALL middle school students who took visual arts this fall. Families and friends are welcome to celebrate the artists. Light refreshments will be served. Following this event, the Winter Choral Concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. in Lawrence Auditorium.
Please join us for our rescheduled Middle School Parent Social on Friday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Castle. Catch up with old friends, and make some new friends! We look forward to seeing you there!
We are still looking for a few volunteers to help out as “Gap Chaperones”. Periodically during the year parent volunteers are needed to chaperone Middle School students in the library loft while faculty meeting are taking place in the Forum. We are in need of a volunteer for December 18th (as well as future dates). If you are interested please sign up via this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b44adad2caaf49-middle1 Thank you!
Also in December are assessments, preparation by Class VI for the annual holiday assembly and the start of winter break.
