Dear Parents and Visitors,

Welcome to Notre Dame of Bethlehem School Catholic Elementary School, where we build the faith, minds, and spirit of our students from Preschool to 8th grade. For over 50 years, Notre Dame has challenged our students to excel academically in a safe and faith-filled environment.

One of our parents, whose five children attended Notre Dame, recently summed up her family's experience by saying, "In an atmosphere of mutual caring and respect, our children have been given the skills they need to fulfill their dreams. They are not the exception; they are the rule. Notre Dame will provide and develop the tools necessary for your child's young mind to develop spiritually, physically, emotionally and academically. A Notre Dame education is priceless, as are the children it ministers to."

The teachers and staff continually pray for the wisdom to know what is best for your children. May we always be bearers of the good news of Jesus Christ in all we teach and in all we do - this is our greatest mission as a faith-based school community.

Thank you for visiting our website. If I can be of any help to you, please don't hesitate to contact me. May God's love shine through us and be in us ~ that every person we come in contact with may feel His presence.

Mrs. Kathy Maziarz

New to our School

Choosing a school for your child can be an overwhelming task - there are so many factors to consider. We encourage parents to begin by carefully researching an environment that offers an educational experience that will fulfill the spiritual, academic, social and emotional needs of their child. At Notre Dame, we feel strongly that we provide the necessary tools kids need to succeed in all these areas.

Our school philosophy is based on guiding children to grow individually, gain knowledge, acquire skills, and develop a Christian philosophy that they will carry with them throughout their lives. We believe that the responsibility of a child's education rests in the hands of both parents and educators and that this relationship should be based upon mutual respect and cooperation.

All children are gifts from God and their smiles are expressions of His love. We welcome the opportunity to provide your children with a quality Catholic education.

Please take the time to explore the various opportunities at Notre Dame and thank you for your interest in our school.
