Who We Are

Welcome to Notre Dame Elementary, a small, independent, co-ed Catholic school for students in preschool through eighth grade. We believe in the power of a nurturing, connected environment designed to help children become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and well-rounded human beings. We are open for in-person and distance learning with space available in all grades.

Notre Dame Elementary is rooted in the educational tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who founded the school in 1851. We take a personalized approach to learning and create a school community that makes students feel safe and at ease. We are supportive of individual needs and recognize that every child has their own unique potential. We feel fortunate to be their guides and give them the stable school environment that serves as a solid foundation for reaching, growing, and becoming all they can be.

FUN RUN 2021!
Kathy Camacho

The Notre Dame Elementary School Fun Run is an exciting event which promotes fitness and healthy habits, as well as being one of our main fundraisers for this school year. Students will be running and walking 40 laps (about 30 minutes) on May 19th and asking friends, family and co-workers for pledges over the next couple of weeks. This is going to be a blast!!  Note: we will be following all social distancing guidelines and local heath rules to be sure everyone is safe!

Everyone including staff, students and families are working hard to make this a huge success. We're all super excited! 

We can't reach our goal without you! Your generous support is appreciated! To make a general donation to this event, please click on the link below.
