Middle School Notes

We hope that the school year is off to a great start for you and your children.  It was nice to see so many of you at the annual Parents’ Association Fall Social and the first PA meeting.  Thank you for your participation!

October is a busy month in the middle school, filled with increased homework, various sporting events and many parent and student social activities. There are also several opportunities for parents to continue to get involved and learn more about the Nobles community.

Before we list the key dates in October, we would like to highlight a couple of significant events for you to consider attending:

Middle School Parent Event: An Evening with Dr. Chris Willard, Tuesday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Middle School Forum

Join local author and psychologist Dr. Christopher Willard for an evening discussion of middle school stress and sharing mindfulness as a family for physical and mental health and resilience, as well as academic and athletic performance

6:30 - 7 p.m. Meet & Greet in Forum while enjoying appetizers

7 p.m.  Dr. Chris Willard - Presentation

Fall Middle School PA Coffee, Tuesday, October 10 at 8 a.m. in the Castle Library
Please join us for this event. Our guest speakers will be Middle School Dean Colette Finley and Director of Counseling Jen Hamilton. The coffee is a chance to meet fellow middle school parents. It is also the perfect time for new Class VI parents to ask any questions, big or small, of returning Class V parents.
