Parents' Association 2015 - 2016

The Parents Association Board welcomes you to a new school year at Notre Dame College Prep. Parents are a vital part of the Notre Dame Community, and we hope you will join us and get involved. 

The Parents’ Association is a great liaison between home and school, and all parents and guardians are automatically members. We encourage you to become an active member. We meet monthly, on Monday nights in the library. These meetings are the best place to find out, and keep up with what is going on at school. The meetings keep you informed about upcoming events and school issues. Several times throughout the year we bring in speakers to discuss important teen topics. Our meetings are a great way to meet other parents, and they’re fun!
