Grades PreK-8 Calendar of Events
All Week PreK-12 Service Project: Support the CSW Missions FUNdraiser!
At NDA, we are committed to living out the SND mission to SERVE those most in need. One of the ways we do that is by raising money to help support our mission projects that take place throughout the year. We raise money not only for service we do locally and internationally through the school, but also to help support the global mission projects of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Throughout the week, bring in some spare change to donate to support NDA’s ongoing mission projects! PreK-12 will be paired as teams to support the projects listed. The team that raises the most money by the end of the week will receive a FUN ice cream party! See www.tinyurl.com/ndamissionsfundraiser for more details.
