We bid farewell to Principal Theresa Francis as she retires from Notre Dame School after 35 years. Mrs. Francis leaves a legacy of strong leadership and service to our school. She worked tirelessly on behalf of the Notre Dame School students and families and she will be missed!
Congratulations to our 2021 NDS Graduates!
We are so proud of our graduating class of 2021. Graduation was held at the Cathedral Guadalupe with The Most Reverend Edward J. Burns presiding over the ceremony.
Most of these students have been a part of Notre Dame School for over ten years. We have watched them grow from small children into young adults. Three of these graduates are now earning paychecks! We are so proud of each and every one of you and look forward to your continued success.
Celebrations for our Students
The month of May was busy will several graduation ceremonies at Notre Dame School. In addition to the graduation of our Vocational students, we also had two other graduation ceremonies.
Students in our Intermediate program (ages 11 - 15) were recognized for their achievements and promoted to the Bridges program (ages 15 - 18). This is an exciting time for these students as they move from an academically focused curriculum in the Intermediate department to a program that allows for job skill preparations in addition to academics. The Bridges students begin focusing on career exploration and social skills development by going off campus at least twice a week.
We also celebrated students moving from our Bridges program to our Vocational program (ages 18 - 22). These students will spend every morning at job sites on and off campus, and then work on functional reading, writing and math skills in the afternoon.
Congratulations to all our graduates! We look forward to your continued success at Notre Dame School.
