There are many exciting and engaging activities on the calendar this month and we hope to see you often. The theatre program is in full swing with the NTC's Middle School production, Gargantua, next week followed by the 2018 NTC musical, Cry-Baby. Nobles is chock full of impressive theatrical talent, so make sure to check the calendar for show times. Come cheer on the Bulldogs at a basketball or hockey game, or go further afield to Nashoba to watch the ski team. To start things off is the highly anticipated Girls Varsity Basketball game against the Cotting School, away this year on Saturday, February 3.
The PA is busy as well. We invite you to join us for some intellectual stimulation, coffee, and conversation in the Foster Gallery on February 8 from 8 to 9 a.m. Catch up with other parents while viewing the new exhibition, Disruption and Innovation: Transformative Works from the Tower Collection, in honor of the new academic center. This exhibit focuses on the transition from old to new using the evolution of book production methods and changes in scientific and cultural thought.
Shhhhh! Four separate surprise luncheons will be held this month for Classes I-IV. Your assistance is always appreciated for helping to make these beloved traditions for our students such a success, so please reach out to your class parents if you can lend a hand.
The next PA Book Group will be on Thursday, March 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the Castle Dining Room. The book selection is Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life, by William Deresiewicz. With college education as its target topic, this book is sure to provide some very thought-provoking discussion.
The PA Outings Coordinators are offering two terrific programs to fight the winter doldrums. Snow is in the forecast, so let’s go cross-country skiing!! We are planning an outing to the Weston Ski Track. If you think you might interested, email Jackie Temple and she will confirm the date in the next few weeks. Have you always wanted to learn how to row? The Nobles Parent Rowing Team will start training in April with CRI. Please contact Marina Reiser for more information.
We are very excited too be hosting our next PA meeting in the academic center on March 7 at 8 a.m. This not-to-be-missed gathering will feature tours of this new space with remarks by Chief Financial and Operating Officer Steve Ginsberg. **Please note this is a change of date and location.
Finally, we invite you to get more involved with the PA! February is the month the Parents’ Association begins to plan for next year. Whether you are new to Nobles, or a current or past volunteer, we welcome your time and talent to further your connection with other Nobles parents and our school community.
