...Shhh! Thursday, February 1: Class IV Olympics Surprise Lunch!
Every year, each class has a special treat lunch, usually with a fun theme. Our theme this year is the Winter Olympics! This event is hosted by the parents/guardians in the lower Castle dining room. This lunch is always appreciated by the students, who enjoy a break in the middle of the semester to do something a little different and fun. This is a great way to get to know and connect with parents in the class, so we encourage you to volunteer, either in the planning stages or on the day of set up and coordination, or both! We would love to have your help. We thank all those who have already volunteered and were able to attend our planning meeting last month.
Please join us for our second planning meeting in the Castle lower dining room on January 11 at 8:00 a.m.
Back in September, our hope was two-fold: (1) that new and returning students would join together to form a cohesive, supportive, 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 transition into high school as seamlessly and successfully as possible.
From our vantage point, it appears 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 your support for all of the activities we’ve had thus far. We hope you know that your help is highly valued. 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. We thank you for all your support and for your participation.
