Celebrating Homecoming

November 18, 2021

Students celebrated Homecoming recently with traditional dodge ball and flag football games. They also enjoyed food and fun, filling Pardini Park with joy and laughter. The next night, ND hosted a Homecoming dance attended by almost 700 students who danced the evening away. The proceeds from these events benefit tuition assistance and were part of ND's Funding the Future campaign.

The sophomore Class of 2025 Royal Blue & Gold Dragons hosted Eighth Grade Day recently welcoming 8th grade students from schools in our own neighborhood and as far as Fremont, Gilroy and Los Altos. The Dragons were excited to meet some of the students who will be their little siblings next school year!

Notre Dame’s Latinas Unidas club led our learning community in a celebration of Día De Los Muertos this week. During lunch, the group gathered in Pardini Park to perform Folklórico, a traditional Mexican dance, after briefly explaining the significance of Día De Los Muertos. Día De Los Muertos, which means “Day of the Dead,” is a holiday originating in Mexico but that is celebrated all over Latin America and is meant to honor loved ones or important figures who have passed away.

Notre Dame’s student leadership group, Lighthouse, is bringing awareness to students’ mental health across campus. Lighthouse focuses on building community through the lens of mental health, hoping to destigmatize the topic.

Experiencing Rodin

November 4, 2021

Art comes in many forms, whether that be paintings, sculptures, statues, music or even dance. Recently, students in Notre Dame's AP French Language & Culture class had the privilege of visiting Stanford University’s Auguste Rodin sculpture collection.

The spirit of generosity ruled court recently as Notre Dame hosted Dig Pink, a volleyball competition between Notre Dame San Jose and Basis, to raise money in support of breast cancer research.

On October 19th, the Notre Dame chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 103 new members in a virtual ceremony.  Students were selected by the Scholarship Committee for demonstrating a high standard of excellence in their character, scholarship, leadership and service.

After over a year of “quarantine” robotics, Team 1967 - The Janksters returned to the field at CalGames, a FIRST Robotics Competition offseason event hosted by the Western Region Robotics Forum! Sixteen Notre Dame students represented our team of more than 70 members at Lynbrook High School. Our motto for all 22 hours of competition -  “Work hard, play hard.”
