From the Parents' Association
In this month of thanksgiving, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parent volunteers who help our PA run so efficiently. October saw a flurry of PA activity, and we are grateful to the many parents who donated their time and energy to PA events this fall. A special thank you to our Class Reps who have done a superb job organizing class coffees and socials. It has been wonderful to see so many parents and guardians enthusiastically gather over the past few weeks. We also want to extend an enormous thank you to Anne Kelley and Barb Emery for their extraordinary planning and execution of the Nobles Yard Sale. We are so grateful to them, as well as all of the parents who gave their time, their physical labor, and their donated treasures to make this Yard Sale such a tremendous accomplishment and triumph. The event raised nearly $25,000 for Achieve and immeasurably raised the spirit of our community. Bravo!
As we head into November, we wish to draw your attention to a few of our upcoming events. Be sure to join us for our November PA Meeting on Tuesday, November 28 at 8:00 in the Castle Library. We are thrilled to welcome Michael Hoe, Director of Academic Support, as our featured speaker. Michael will speak with parents about academic support resources available to our children, and he will provide some strategies that parents can use to help their children at home. Join us to learn some new techniques, and put this newfound knowledge into practice just in time for exams.
