Middle School Parent Letter
Middle School Parent Reps
May and June are busy months at Nobles with many fun events for both students and parents. Below is a detailed list of important dates to mark in your calendar, as well as some key highlights that we encourage you to try to attend.
Please consider coming to the Class V Solar Car Race and All School Barbecue on Wednesday, May 17. Cheering for the students’ creations on the outside tennis courts is fun for the whole school and worth taking the time out of your busy day.
Also, please note that Thursday, June 8 is Comment Writing Day for the teachers and a No School Day for the students. On that day the Parents Association invites all middle school students to Canobie Lake Park for a celebratory end-of-school outing. This is a parent-led event with plenty of volunteer opportunities. More information on how to participate will be posted in future Wednesday emails.
Finally, the Middle School has a Step Up Ceremony at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, June 9. The event marks the transition from the Middle School to the Upper School for Class V students. All Class V students are required to attend, and Class V parents and guardians are encouraged to attend.
As the middle school class representatives, we would like to thank all of you for your help and valued feedback through out the year. We truly appreciate your effort to attend and contribute to all of the Nobles events. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know everyone. Thank you for a wonderful year together!
