Local winners are ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expectation of recognition.

Notre Dame seniors Annie, Kayla, Srija, Shruti and Katelyn recently joined a prestigious group of high school seniors recognized as National Merit Semifinalists in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program.  Because of their truly superb performance on the PSAT, all five young women will be considered for National Merit, college and corporate-sponsored scholarships if they move to finalist status, notification of which is made in the spring.

Heading Back to School

August 29, 2019

With summer 2019 coming to an end, the Griffins, Tigers, Raptors and the Class of 2023 made their way back to school, filling the campus once again with laughter and excitement. Before all their classes, students made their way to JB Hall for the start-of-school assembly. Student leaders opened the year with the theme of Belonging at the assembly. ASB student body president Neha Jain ’20, introduced the Belonging theme in her opening address, encouraging her ND sisters to take extra steps this year to ensure everyone feels included.

Notre Dame's Robotics Team, the Janksters, hosted their seventh annual bootcamp for current and incoming students earlier in August. Through a series of workshops, games and other hands-on activities the students learned about the robotics program and make some new friends. For the leaders it was an opportunity to further develop their communication and leadership skills.

Last night we celebrated the Class of 2019 Vipers and their many accomplishments at the Senior Recognition Ceremony! At this morning’s assembly, their Notre Dame sisters cheered and shed a few tears as the Vipers left Julie Billiart Hall for the final time and officially joined the global network of Notre Dame alumnae.

Notre Dame's Class of 2020 is already following in the footsteps of their viper sisters with a long list of awards and honors. The Scholarship Committee recently awarded Junior Book Awards and Medals to some very deserving young women.
