FAIRFIELD—“I am tremendously proud of our entire school community for rallying around this event each year. Knowing that hundreds of lives will be touched in one way or another today is fantastic. Today’s a great example of ND fulfilling our mission to build character, faith and intellect,” said Notre Dame High School Principal, Chris Cipriano, commenting on the school’s annual Service Day.
Notre Dame’s Service Day is coordinated by Jessica Medoff, director of campus ministry, and is part of the school’s celebration of Catholic School’s week and its 26 Acts of Kindness campaign.
“While a tremendous amount of planning and coordination goes into making the day possible, today fulfills and supports a core component of the school’s mission and certainly helps to put smiles on faces of all those involved,” commented Jessica Medoff.
Volunteers visited 41 different work sites in Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield counties. Take a look at all of the wonderful work Notre Dame Fairfield students took part in the ND Service Day 2018 video!
The vision of Notre Dame High School is to be the model of secondary education in the state of Connecticut. They achieve that with demanding academics coupled with a supportive learning community, a range of enriching extra-curriculars, a competitive sports program, and a fierce commitment to service—all guided by Catholic values. Above all, they strive to instill in each student a sense of moral responsibility. Because, after all, leadership is worthless if it’s not guided by ethics.
