Notre Dame Catholic School Committees
The Mission Statement; The Notre Dame Development Committee exists to cultivate relationships with our community for the purpose of building the spiritual and financial foundation of the parish school community. Money is raised to support development through an Annual Fund Campaign mailing and a dinner and auction event called the Spring Fest. All proceeds go to the school budget to reduce the subsidy the parish gives to the school. It reaches out to the alumni of the school by publishing the alumni Newsletter. The committee meets month and for more information call the school office.
The committee supports and organizes all internal and external marketing for the school. Marketing members meet month and for more information call the school office.
