On October 24, 2014, we celebrate the efforts of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, who have transformed the world through education.

Junior Brian Barcinas leads the student body in prayer during a service honoring our foundress and School Sisters of Notre Dame on October 21, 2014.



Representatives from the Bank of Guam visited the Notre Dame campus on October 16, 2014, and educated the seniors on the importance of having good credit.


ND alumni Mariah Mafnas ('00), left, and Yolanda Muna Padrones ('90) were part of the visiting Bank of Guam.

Thank you to the Bank of Guam representatives for taking the time out to speak to our seniors. 



 The Class of 2015 embarked on a pilgrimage to churches in central and northern Guam on October 15, 2014.  Students had the opportunity to educate their peers through group presentations on that particular parish.  The Royal family would like to thank all those who welcomed the senior class into their churches.



Student Council officers, elected by their peers, held their installation ceremony on Thursday, October 9, 2014.  Congratulations to our Royal student leaders and their advisors, Miss Santos and Mrs. Walsh!



          Five Notre Dame High School students attended the National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) and the National Young Leaders Conference (NYLC) in June 2014. The NSLC provides students with the opportunity to “experience life on a college campus, develop essential leadership skills, and explore a future career through exciting simulations, exclusive site visits and interactive meetings with renowned leaders in their chosen field.” Juniors Theana Lynn Aromin, Keleko Fejeran, and Charis Manibusan attended the NSLC focus on Medicine and Health Care at the University of California at Berkeley. Shelby Perez, junior, attended the NSLC focus on Mastering Leadership at American University in Washington, D.C. Maria Chafauros, sophomore, attended the NYLC Envision Program in Washington D.C. The NYLC summer program gave attendees the opportunity to “explore interests, enlarge [students’] perspective and hone the skills [they] need to become an influential leader in the 21st century.”

       The conference attendees presented their conference experiences to Notre Dame community at a school wide assembly in September. The presentation peaked the interests of their peers and encouraged them to participate in the program. While most attendees are nominated by their teachers to attend the conference, the programs are open to students who express interest.

       Notre Dame High School came together as a family and held their annual Peace Prayer Service on September 11, 2014 to pray for peace throughout the world and for the lives lost in tragedies such as 9/11.  During this service, students offered their prayers in different ways.  The Art and Chorus class presented a  performance and slideshow. The Spanish and Japanese classes recited prayers in their respective languages. 


Spanish teacher, Señor Sablan, lights a candle during prayer.


 Art and chorus students perform "Let It Be" by the Beatles and "Turn! Turn! Turn!" by the Byrds.

 Notre Dame students had the opportunity to display their spirit and creativity through various theme days during Spirit Week.  Themes included Emoji Monday, Traditional Tuesday, Walt Disney Wednesday, Howdy Doody Thursday, and Flashback Friday.

We would like to give a special Royal welcome to all new students! Welcome to our new faculty Mr. Goden, Ms. Crisostomo, Ms. Palmares, and Ms. Willter.




The Notre Dame High School community will open the 2014-2015 school year with a new athletic field through the kindness of prominent local businessman Al Ysrael and the Ysrael Family. Construction of the Ysrael Athletic Field is underway and completion will take place this August. Additional donors of the field include, Duenas and Associates, John and Ray Camacho of Dirt Doktor, Tom D. Perez, Perez Brothers, and Hawaiian Rock Products.

During Notre Dame's accreditation process in 2011, the accreditation team from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) recommended the creation of a multipurpose sports field on which the Notre Dame Physical Education students and athletes may practice and compete. Aside from being cost effective for NDHS, a playing field constructed on school property will provide a sense of ownership, give the students a home field advantage, and most importantly, boost school spirit and pride within the students of Notre Dame.

"Notre Dame High School is grateful to Mr. Ysrael, his family, and all donors for giving our students a place to excel in Physical Education and sports-related activities," says Sister Jean Ann Crisostomo, NDHS President.

Spiritually Oriented and Globally Concerned

Notre Dame High School celebrated Thanksgiving Mass with Father Felixberto Leon Guerrero as its presider on November 26, 2013. Students presented their gifts of canned goods which were collected as part of the Archdiocesan Annual Thanksgiving Food and Fund Drive, while the offertory was collected for the Haiyan victims in the Philippines. As part of the Royal Thanksgiving Celebration, Notre Dame remembered all students, graduates, faculty, staff, and administrators who have been called to rest throughout the past 45 years, during a special candle lighting ceremony.
