Adopt-A-Family Needs your Help

We Need Your Help
There are still many items open

This Christmas Season, the Notre Dame of De Pere school community is looking forward to spreading some extra Christmas Spirit in our local community. We have the opportunity to share our blessings with 5 local families. Mr. Balza, Mrs. Cramer, and Christian Outreach have identified families that would benefit from this wonderful program.

We have a wish list of gift suggestions on the sign up genius. Items do not need to be wrapped, but it would be very helpful if you can mark which item you signed up for on the donation (i.e., Boy 2T pants). Please send all donated items to the school offices, labeled Adopt-a-Family at any point prior to December 10th as this will ensure that everything is wrapped and delivered to the families on time.

Thanks in advance for your help in making this program a success!

Ms. Norppa’s Math Hours:

If I am unable to adequately address a student’s questions during class, or if a student has additional questions about the material, I strongly encourage those students to come see me for extra help. I am currently teaching a class during both study hall times. However, I am available to help students with math at the following times:

  • Before school (7:30-7:50)
  • During recess (11:53 – 12:05)
  • After school (3:00 – at least 3:30)

This schedule may change based on particular circumstances (e.g. doctor’s appointment, recess duty, etc.).

NDA Tutors

On Tuesday afternoons, from 3:30-4:15, students from NDA come and tutor our middle school students in math. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact Ms. Norppa at enorppa@gracesystem.org.

We are working on providing additional math resources for your students! Please stay tuned for updates!

St. John’s Homeless Meal

This Monday December 4th  Notre Dame of De Pere has the wonderful opportunity to provide a warm meal to the guests of St. John’s Homeless Shelter. Please have your items in a disposable container and at the Dolski Center by 3:15.

A favorite meal of the guests is walking tacos. For this meal we thought we would treat them to it.

Please see if there is something you could help us out with.

Fall Fest

It’s that time of year again for our annual Notre Dame of De Pere Fall Fest. Join us for children’s games, music, prizes/candy and dinner. We have a wide range of children’s games that are free to play. While you are there you may purchase a yummy/quick dinner such as walking tacos, hot dogs, brats plus side dishes, baked goods and drinks. This is a relaxing night to let the kids play fall themed games in the middle school gym while catching up with other ND families.
This GREAT event can only be a success with your help. Please consider volunteering to help with a shift, set up, clean up and/or donate a baked good. This is a perfect event to help middle school students gain service hours! Remember to bring your service hour sheet.
The Fall Fest starts at 5:30 and ends at 8:30 in the Middle School Gym.
