Honors Band Shines at OMEA Concert
Five NDES students participated in the OMEA (Ohio Music Educator’s Association) district 7 Junior High
honor band. Myles Temesi, Owen Tomsic, Dylan White, Kate Williams, and Peter Bates represented NDES at a large group rehearsal with 110 students from over 30 schools. The honor band was held at Mentor Fine Arts Center and the guest clinician was Dr. Wendy K. Matthews, the Director of Bands at Kent State University. Our students were excellent representatives of Notre Dame! They worked very hard during the 7 hour rehearsal, staying focused and perfecting additional music to what they are learning at school. They also had 2 masterclasses during the day with professionals on each of their instruments. They even gave up a snow day to be able to participate. Great job and congratulations to Myles, Owen, Dylan, Kate and Peter!!

8th Grade CYO Team Wraps Up the Season by Serving Others

The 8th grade boys recently wrapped up their CYO basketball season with fun and service! After a terrific father-son basketball game, the boys teamed up with the parents to pack 100 brown bag lunches for a homeless shelter in Painesville. The generous parents donated all the food items that went into the lunches and the boys spent about an hour packing all the lunches and getting everything ready for delivery to the shelter.
