Become a Host Family for a Newly Admitted Nobles Family
The Admissions Office, in partnership with the Parents' Association, is looking for host families (current grades 7-11) for incoming Fall 2011 students and their families. The role of the host family is to provide a connection between new families and the larger Nobles community by creating an accessible and welcoming environment.
Host Parents will be asked to attend either a welcome reception for new Upper School families (Monday evening, April 25) or attend the Middle School orientation dinner on May 10. Attendance will depend on which reception their new family will attend. After these gatherings, we ask host families to follow up with a few phone calls and/or e-mails during the summer and fall. There is no financial expense involved with this position – it requires only a small time commitment, energy and enthusiasm!
We encourage ALL families (grades 7-11) to consider volunteering and we look forward to hearing from you. If you enjoyed having a host family welcome you into the Nobles community last year, please consider becoming a host family this year. And if you have hosted before, please join us again. This program gives us all a chance to promote the welcoming and generous spirit that defines Nobles.
To volunteer, visit the password-protected Parents’ page of the Nobles website. Once you visit www.nobles.edu, look for the sign-in box at the top, right hand corner. Once you've reached the Parents' page, look for the blue box on the right-hand side of the page, select “Click Here for Volunteer Forms” and then click on the “2011 Volunteer Registration Form-Host Program for New Nobles Families.” This form takes only three minutes to fill out and will facilitate the matching process. We will match each host family with one or two new families based on a common interest, geographic locale, etc. We look forward to working with you in the coming year.
If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail Deborah Kenealy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
