As the snow melts and the air warms, we reflect back on the many events hosted by the PA during the busy month of February. Our upper school class reps and parent volunteers organized a dizzying array of class coffees and surprise lunches for our students. Whether the Castle dining room was transformed into PyeongChang for the Olympics, Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras, or a heart-filled oasis for Valentine’s Day, we are grateful to all of the parent volunteers who worked tirelessly to bring these events to life. We also wish to thank the Arts Liaisons for coordinating our informative Foster Gallery coffee and tour. It was a pleasure to spend a snowy morning in this lovely campus space.
March break will soon be upon us, but before we vacate the Nobles campus, we wish to remind you of several upcoming events:
Thursday, March 1: Join us in the Castle Library for our PA Book Group. This month’s discussion will center around the book Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of America’s Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life, by William Deresiewicz. The conversation is sure to be lively and thought provoking, so even if you have not had a chance to read the book, consider joining us.
Saturday, March 3: Our Class II Reps and an army of parent volunteers will be busy turning the Castle Dining Hall into a winter-themed wonderland for the Annual Head of School Dinner. Class II students will be treated to “A Walk in the Woods” for this time-honored Class II rite of passage.
Wednesday, March 7 at 8:00 a.m. Join us for our March PA meeting to be held in the new academic center. We will tour the center and learn about the construction project from Steve Ginsburg. This will be a wonderful opportunity for parents to get a glimpse of this new, vital space on campus.
We wish everyone a relaxing and restorative break this month. We look forward to seeing you on campus this spring!
