Noble students masked up and headed into the buildings Sept. 3 for their first day of in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. Energy soared as students saw their friends and teachers face-to-face after a long time apart.

Giant Jenga towers, dunk tanks filled with beloved staff members, barbeques, and block parties welcomed students, staff and community members across many Noble schools; everyone celebrating the beginning of the new school year.

Check out some of the highlights and photos below:
