COVID restrictions were no match for the dauntless spirit and sisterhood of our Notre Dame students this week as they celebrated Spirit Week 2021.

In a year of COVID and remote learning, Spirit Week preparations have been a bit different but the enthusiasm and joy are still there! Songs have been practiced, games have been played, and the energy, even via Zoom, is high!  Spirit Week preparations officially kicked off Friday with the banner reveal! And, since gym decs are not possible this year, each class also revealed a mural featuring each student and their mentors.
