Recently, the US has experienced tremendous tragedy from the raging fires in the west, to the flooded homes and cities in the south, and even as far reaching as Puerto Rico, where citizens are being displaced by the tens of thousands due to flooding and crumbling infrastructure. Our fellow citizens have a very long road ahead of them to recovery in the wake of these disasters.
For this year's Fall Fest Fundraiser, we will unite as a NDA community in collaboration with Catholic Charities to raise funds for our fellow brothers and sisters suffering from these natural disasters. So, buy a pin, enjoy the week's activities, and know that beyond the fun and excitement you are supporting a great cause!
We are privileged to announce the following theme days for Fall Fest 2017. We are excited by all of the creative things that are possible, but, as always, we ask that you respect the intention of our day, and not use it as just an excuse to dress down. All dress down days, along with the parameters, can be found on the NDA calendar. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Masarik or Frau. Laaksonen In order to participate in any of the dress down days, you must purchase a pin for your backpack. The cost of the pin is $2.
