Nobles Parents' Newsletter December 2017

From the PA

This is the time of the year when we reflect on that for which we are thankful. On behalf of the Parents’ Association, we want to extend our appreciation and gratitude to our wonderful faculty, staff and administrators for their dedication that they give to the Nobles community each and every day.

In addition, we would like to recognize and thank the many parent volunteers whose effort and hard work this fall have helped to bring our school community together as well as to support our students. Some of the many ways in which the Parents’ Association contributed to the community this semester include:

  • Raising awareness and money for Achieve at the Saturday Night Lights event as well as the Yard Sale
  • Volunteering time at a service trip to Cradles To Crayons as well as at the Pie Drive
  • Volunteering in the Admissions Office
  • Organizing several all-school gatherings, coffees and socials so that parents could connect with each other
  • Organizing student surprise breakfasts and lunches
  • Coordinating arts receptions, sports banquets, weekly walks and workouts, and the parent book group; planning an Italian-inspired lunch for the faculty/staff
  • Representing Nobles at PIN
  • Coordinating the Host Program to assist the transition of new families to Nobles
  • Educating the community on ways in which we can be less wasteful and more green.

The PA has accomplished a lot in four months!

There is no PA meeting this month but we hope you will join us on January 17, 2018 in the Castle Dining Room when our PA meetings resume. Michael Denning, Head of the Upper School, will moderate a panel discussion of Nobles teachers. Joining us will be Kim Libby, teacher of English and Class I Dean; Sue Kemalian, Chair of the Math Department; Dan Halperin, Chair of Performing Arts; Melissa Lyons, middle school history and social science teacher; Amadou Seck, coach, modern language (French) teacher and advisor to the Debate and Model UN Club; Nahyon Lee, History Department Chair; and John Chung, science and math teacher. During our discussion, these educators will talk about education, teaching, and learning as well as why they joined—and remain a part of—the Nobles community.

We wish you a very happy and safe holiday season with your family and friends, and look forward to the year ahead. 

Warm regards,

Gina Doyle and Izzy Loring
