Nobles Parents E-Newsletter November 2010


Questions at Open House by Bob Henderson, Head of School

On the third Saturday morning of every October we host an Open House for the purpose of admissions. No doubt many of the parents reading this once attended one of those events.


Teenagers and Motivation by Ben Snyder, Head of Upper School

As teachers and parents we are often faced with the challenge of how to get our students and children to "work harder," "care more" or "get stronger" (or a million other ways in which we, as adults, think they can improve).

From the PA Co-Chairs

We would like to extend our thanks to all the members of the Nobles community who donated their attic treasures to the Yard Sale and volunteered their time to sort, price and sell goods.
