Notre Dame Academy will kick off this week-long tradition with “Monday Nunday,” a day set aside to honor the Sisters of Notre Dame. Most Reverend Bishop Roger Foys will join NDA students for Mass on Monday morning where special recognition will be given to the Sisters of Notre Dame for the tremendous support they have given NDA for over 100 years. The Sisters of Notre Dame will later serve the students ice cream sundaes at lunch. On Tuesday, NDA students will show their appreciation for their faculty who serve as Gospel witnesses to the NDA community. The NDA students and faculty members are all gearing up for a challenging volleyball match against their neighbors, the Covington Catholic Colonels on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. On Thursday, students will don their red, white, and blue showing their appreciation for the freedoms that have been protected and preserved for them. In addition, they will write letters of gratitude to U.S. service men and women. The celebration culminates on Friday with Skyline Chili for lunch and the annual NDA Talent Show where students showcase the gifts with which God has blessed them.
Notre Dame Academy joins with Catholic schools across the country this week in celebrating the history and success of Catholic education. Each year National Catholic Schools Week is a special time for Notre Dame Academy students to proudly recognize their religious heritage and pay tribute to all those who support NDA. The theme for this year’s Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards” highlighting the things that set Catholic schools apart: faith, academics, and service.
