Tours & S’mores During Open House Feb. 2 at Notre Dame
TYNGSBORO -- Everybody’s favorite fireside treat will be featured again this year at the Academy of Notre Dame’s Tours & S’mores open house on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Open House will include supervised fire rings where families can toast their gooey s’mores after enjoying a sweet tour of NDA. Families with students in all grade ranges, from pre-kindergarten to grade 12, are invited.
“We want to make this event an exciting family outing where prospective families can explore our programs and campus while enjoying their time together with a bit of what makes New England winters so quintessential,” said Elisa Lellios, director of admissions. “After families tour the school, they’ll receive a s’mores kit with everything they need to make a tasty treat outside.
“One of our strengths at the Academy is the tight-knit, family culture,” Lellios added. “Instead of just talking to new families about it, we wanted to show them what that means.”
NDA Students from grades 7-12 will serve as tour guides. Parents will have an opportunity to meet with faculty and staff to learn more about the co-educational programs for Early Years (pre-kindergarten through kindergarten), Lower School (grades 1-5), middle school (grades 6-8) and the college-preparatory, all-girls program for Upper School (grades 9-12).
A showcase of student organizations, athletics, student services and specials (music, art, technology, and physical education) will be available as well.
“We’re excited to show families our Makerspaces, Student Center and playground while they are here visiting,” Lellios said. “We are fortunate to be able to offer our families a 200-plus acre campus that highlights both our history and our future growth potential.”
Current NDA parents and alumni will also be on hand to chat with prospective families while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.
