I have spent 20 years at Notre Dame of De Pere, and before that I spent 3 years at Clay Lamberton Middle School, Berlin. Notre Dame is special because of the wonderful, faith-filled students, family and faculty. I love the enthusiasm and energy of the students and the support of families, faculty and staff.

Middle School:  Students have viewed and reflected on Shrek, the Musical in preparation for the Spring Concert.  Students have also begun a unit on the sound, microphone, lighting and curtain equipment of Notre Dame of De Pere.  The goal is that all middle school students have basic knowledge of the operation of all equipment at Notre Dame of De Pere.  We will begin preparing for the Spring Concert, Shrek the Musical, Jr., as soon as the books arrive. Students will prepare the music for the weekly school Masses as well.

Elementary School:  Students have discussed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and learned two songs from the Civil Rights Movement, “We Shall Overcome” and “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around”.  Students have also learned and performed a Chinese ribbon and fan dance.  Students will prepare the music for the weekly school Masses as well. We sure are enjoying our new Flip Form risers!  They even fold down into a stage when we practice our musical.
