From the Parents' Association
Welcome, parents, to the 2017-2018 school year!
As this year’s co-chairs of the Nobles Parents’ Association, we are excited for the new school year, and we would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family.
All Nobles parents and guardians are automatically members of the Nobles Parents’ Association (PA). Although the PA has many different roles at Nobles, it is our goal to help all families feel welcome and integral to the everyday functions of our school. One of the best ways you can become connected to the Nobles community is to volunteer your time. Whether you have an hour to spare or would like to commit to an ongoing role, your support of Nobles activities and events will surely be rewarding.
We hope you’ll join us as we kick off the school year on Saturday, September 9, at the Nobles Parents’ Association Fall Social, from 6:30-9:00 p.m. in the Castle. This annual tradition is a casual and fun way for new and returning parents to meet one another, and a great way to reacquaint with old friends after the summer months. Kindly RSVP by using the link in the weekly emails you will receive.
The fall at Nobles is bustling with activity. To find out more, please read your respective Parent Class Representatives’ letters in the Class Notes section of this monthly e-newsletter. Each week upper school parents will also receive a Friday email from Patricia Aliquo and middle school parents will receive a Wednesday email from Maryanne MacDonald with news and reminders for the week.
Please take a moment to log onto the “Parents” portion of the “Nobles Community” tab on the right side of the Nobles website at www.nobles.edu. Select the “Volunteer at Nobles” link in the left navigation pane. On the “Volunteer at Nobles” page, you can browse numerous opportunities that include class-specific as well as schoolwide events. Once you have selected the function you would like to volunteer for, the committee chairs will be in touch with further details. The Nobles website is the center of all news in the busy Nobles community. Please make it a habit to check it for afternoon program announcements, athletic schedules and calendar updates. Be sure to log in so you can see all aspects of the website, not just the public pages. If you have any problems, please contact ISS via email at HELP@nobles.edu.

Nobles Yard Sale
Many volunteers are needed to make this biennial Nobles event a success. Declutter and bring your gently used apparel, sporting goods, home goods and books to Nobles. There are numerous volunteer opportunities during the week leading up to the event to sort, set up and sell. Please check the website and join us to meet new friends and support this wonderful Nobles tradition. All proceeds from the sale support the Achieve program.
We are fortunate to have such a dedicated and wonderful community of parents at Nobles. Thank you in advance for your help and participation. We look forward to seeing you on campus throughout the year.
With warmest regards,
Parents’ Association Co-Chairs,
Gina Doyle and Isabelle Loring
