Happy New Year and welcome back! We hope that everyone had a relaxing and restorative holiday break. The spring semester at Nobles is bustling with PA activity, and we encourage you to join us!
We will kick things off with our first PA meeting of the new year on Wednesday, January 17 in the Castle Dining Room. 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.
Our winter coffee season will begin this month, and we hope you will check your class notes and mark your calendars for your Class date. We begin with two coffees in January:
Middle School Coffee—Wednesday, January 10, 8:00 a.m., Castle Library
Class I Coffee—Friday, January 12, 8:00 a.m., Castle Library
Finally, we will soon begin our nominating process for the selection of next year’s PA Board. We encourage you to begin exploring opportunities on the Nobles Parents' website under the "Volunteer at Nobles" tab, and look for further details about our nominating process in your weekly emails
We wish everyone a healthy and happy new year, and we look forward to seeing you on campus this month.
