Happy Holidays, everyone! Our best wishes for a joyful and healthy New Year.

Back in September, our hope was two-fold: (1) that new and returning students would join together to form a cohesive, civic-minded, serious yet fun class; and (2) that parents would be involved and engaged, share information, get acquainted, and participate as fully as their schedules allow. The ultimate goal was for our kids to seamlessly transition into high school and to have a fun experience as well.

From our vantage point, we are happy to report that this hope has largely become a reality. Our kids have adapted to their new status as high school students with surprising ease and old students have welcomed new ones into the fold to form a cohesive group. New friendships have been formed by both students and parents and we have been gratified by the outpouring of support for all of the activities we’ve had thus far. We hope you know that your help is highly valued. We also hope that you can maintain that fantastic level of involvement even as our days get busier. One of the great benefits of involvement is the wonderful opportunity it presents to share in the lives of our children at Nobles. We hope that you have been pleased by what you’ve seen and that you have been taking advantage of all that the school offers.

Please be reminded that our second Class IV coffee is on Jan. 6, after drop-off. Linda Macdonald, Malcolm’s mom, has graciously volunteered to host this event at her home in Wellesley and we are, of course, appreciative and grateful to her. Also, please, mark your calendars for the spring parent dinner which will be on Friday, April 8, at Kamal Gupta’s home in Newton. We are also extremely grateful to her. Both women are wonderful symbols of the level of involvement and enthusiasm we have had.

We are requesting volunteers to help with the Class IV Surprise Lunch which is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 4, and will be held at the Castle. Please e-mail Suzie if you’re able to volunteer. We appreciate any assistance you can give us to make this event a fun one for all our kids. Discreet details will be forthcoming.

As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas, suggestions or questions. Thank you once again for your support. We look forward to seeing you all on Jan. 6. We hope to start the New Year the way we ended the last one – together and happily engaged in a common purpose.

Warmly,
