Principal Welcome

On behalf of the Notre Dame Catholic School Community of De Pere, I would like to take a moment to express a warm, friendly hello to each and everyone.  I want to thank you for taking the time to view our website which provides a great deal about the Notre Dame School family.

Our mission “Notre Dame School of De Pere develops young minds into future leaders of the Catholic Faith and the community” shows our commitment to educating the whole child.  We provide an environment where children develop spiritually, academically, and emotionally according to the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.  This environment could not be achieved without excellent teachers, supportive parents, and the parishes of St. Francis Xavier and St. Mary.  Notre Dame of De Pere maintains a true family feel and serves students in grades Pre-K through eighth grade.

I encourage you to learn more about Notre Dame of De Pere by stopping in for a tour or consider attending our Open House in January.  One of the best parts of my job is sharing with new families our rich traditions embedded around our 21st century learning skills.  You can also sign up for one of our Shadow Days and allow your child to experience a day in our school first hand.  Please call 920-337-1103 elementary school or 920-337-1115 middle school to set up your visit.

We all possess many God given talents and we at Notre Dame believe we are here to enrich those talents in our students each day.  May God bless you and your family in all that you do.
