Class III Parent Reps
Hello fellow Class III parents!
As we flip the calendar to October we hope that everyone has had a good start to the year. We have enjoyed seeing many of you at the PA Parent Social, Back-to-School Night, and Class IIII Coffee. For those of you who attended the coffee, it was a great opportunity to hear from our Class III Deans, Amy Joyce and Edgar DeLeon. Together we are looking forward to making this a great year for our sophomores and their families!
Our role as your class reps is in part to keep you apprised of opportunities to connect with other Class III families as well as the broader Nobles community. To that end, you should have received an email invitation to our Class III Parent Fall Social coming up on Thursday, October 20 from 7-9:30 p.m. in the Castle. Please save the date as we would love to see as many of you as possible at this event as it is a great way to get to know other parents in the Class. If you have not RSVP’d already, you can do so through Class III: http://www.nobles.edu/calendar/classIIIfallsocial2016.cfm.
Another great way to connect with the School is by volunteering. There are great opportunities available through the website, but we would like to highlight two opportunities specifically for Class III families to get involved. Please know that we welcome any level of involvement in planning these events:
On Friday, January 27 Class III students will enjoy a Surprise Lunch put on by the Dining Staff…shhhh. We would love help in coming up with a fun theme, menu and decorations for this lunch. There will be a planning meeting in November and we will send out more details in a few weeks.
On Saturday, March 4 students will attend the Class III Head of School Dinner and Dance. This is a very fun event for the sophomore class made even more special as it is Bob Henderson’s last year at Nobles. We will have a planning meeting for this in early January and will be in touch with details in December.
If you haven’t already done so, please bookmark the Nobles website and check that calendar often and keep an eye out for the Friday weekly email updates. Both are great ways to keep current on school happenings, announcements and schedule changes. As we look out at October there are some important dates to mark on your calendar:
Monday, Oct. 10 – Columbus Day – school closed (Varsity Home games)
Wednesday, Oct. 12 – Yom Kippur – school closed
Friday, Oct. 14 – Nobles Multicultural Fair
Wednesday, Oct. 19 – Nobles PA Book Discussion – The Wright Brothers
Thursday, Oct. 20 – Class III Parent Social
Monday, Oct. 24 – Comment Writing Day – no classes
Tuesday, Oct. 25 – Trip applications due
Friday, Oct. 28 – Halloween at Nobles and Friday Night Lights
Thank you in advance for your support and participation. We look forward to hopefully seeing and meeting you in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out of we can help in any way.
