Dear Friends of NDCL,
Welcome to 2016-2017 at NDCL! The energy and activity on our beautiful campus indicates that a new school year is in full swing.
Last school year marked the inaugural year of the NDS Board of Directors. This Board is responsible for governing and carrying out the mission and vision of both NDCL and Notre Dame Elementary School and assumes the overall mission to ensure the long-term sustainability of both schools as an expression of the educational vision and principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame. I am honored to Chair and work with these 25 dedicated men and women who have committed their time and talents to support these schools.
Looking over this past year, I am very pleased to report that the NDS Board completed a new 3-year strategic plan with a campus-wide perspective. This new plan titled "Better Together" provides both NDCL and NDES with a roadmap that will guide the schools from 2016-2019. Most importantly, the plan will guide and assure continuity during the transition from the leadership of our current NDS President,Sr. Jacquelyn Gusdane, SND to the new NDS President who will take over this position July 1, 2017.
I am certain that both NDES and NDCL will continue to thrive as a result of the dedication and generous service of Board members, administrators, faculty and staff of the schools, and the commitment of our families and friends to Catholic education and the mission we share. I am honored to be a part of this new effort and I know that you are also.
Best Wishes for the coming year,
Lynne M. Ernes ‘74
Chair, Board of Directors
