Dear Class III Parents:
We hope you have had a wonderful and relaxing summer and that you are anticipating, as we are, a busy and exciting fall. We are pleased to serve as your Class III Parent Representatives and are looking forward to working with all of you to make this a great year for our sophomores.
Our role is to hopefully be a conduit of information from the school to your home regarding important dates and announcements. We’ll also try to continue to build our class community by scheduling a number of parent social opportunities throughout the year. It is also a good idea to bookmark the Nobles website and check the calendar. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Friday weekly updates as well.
Our class has four new students joining us this year and we hope you will welcome these families to Nobles. Whether you are new to Nobles this year, still feel new, or have been at the school for years, we invite you to attend this year’s Class III events. Below we have highlighted just a few of the important Class III dates for the first part of the year. As always, the Nobles website, www.nobles.edu, is a great resource for the entire school calendar. Many of these events are supported by parent volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to get involved and connect with other families and there is an opportunity for everyone however you choose to engage. For those who would like to volunteer, we will have sign-up sheets at Back to School Night, at our first parent coffee and via email using Sign Up Genius.
