Welcome!

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Welcome to Notre Dame of Bethlehem School. Our goal at Notre Dame is to continue to build the faith, minds, and spirit of our students both spiritually and academically. This tradition has been in existence for over 50 years.We have, from the very beginning, challenged our students to excel both academically and technologically. But most especially in our world today, we have created a safe and faith-filled environment.

It cannot be said better than one of our parents whose five children attended Notre Dame, the youngest graduating only two years ago. She wrote, "In an atmosphere of mutual caring and respect, our children have been given thetools 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 too. A Notre Dame education is priceless, as are the children it ministers to."

Let us continue to pray for the wisdom to know what is best for your children and 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 schoolcommunity.

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.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Kathy Maziarz
Principal

New to our School

As a child approaches school age, parents begin to carefully research an environment that offers an educational experience which fulfills the spiritual, academic, social and emotional needs of their children. At Notre Dame ofBethlehem School, we believe that the children who enter our door each day receive the necessary tools needed to succeed in all these areas.

Our school philosophy is based on guiding children to grow individually, obtain knowledge, acquire skills, and develop an attitude that will enable them to become true Christians. A day in the life of Notre Dame engages children in all areas of development with a strong emphasis on the teachings of Jesus. We believe that the responsibility of a child's education rests in the hands of both parents and educators. This relationship should be based upon mutual respect and cooperation.

God has entrusted us with the gift of children and in their smiles are expressions of his love. We understand the magnitude of the decision parents make when choosing the proper educational environment for their children. We welcome the opportunity to provide your children with a quality Catholic education based on academic excellence.

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