Learn about all the fun in Notre Dame Prep's Middle Level
体育运动 in the Middle Level focuses on skill-building, sportsmanship, teamwork, and fun. NDP sports teams aim to enable students to build on an existing experience or explore a new athletic interest. Sometimes teams, such as basketball, have a limited number of players they can take. NDP offers interscholastic competition in 越野, 曲棍球, 足球, and 排球 in the fall; basketball and 足球 in the winter; and badminton, 长曲棍球, 垒球, and 网球 in the spring.
执行 & 视觉艺术
的 执行 艺术 Program at NDP includes electives with the Chorus; Band, Orchestra and Piano Lab; and 跳舞. 除了, Middle Level students can explore and celebrate their inner performer through the annual Middle Level 音乐al, in which students assume all performance and stage-crew roles. As an extra-curricular activity, students may perform in the 跳舞 Company, which performs annually and participates in area competitions. All Middle Level students participate in the visual art program two days a week. On 艺术 Night when all visual artwork is on display, the Middle Level explodes with beauty. 也, 那天晚上, parents and friends enjoy a concert featuring NDP Middle Level musicians and dancers.
Religious education and spiritual development take place within the Middle Level and the larger school community. 的 Middle Level has its own religion classes and attends chapel every Monday morning. 一个充满活力的 校园部 program enhances classroom instruction, and spirituality infuses each day, from morning prayer to the afternoon blessing. Age-appropriate service activities and grade-level retreats build confidence, 自我反省, and relationship with God. 学校仪式, the cornerstone of NDP spiritual life, bring the Middle Level together with the Upper Level, uniting the entire NDP community in celebration.
Extracurricular activities enrich the NDP experience and add to the fun while providing leadership opportunities. 的 Middle Level has its own activities, 音乐乐团, 树修剪, and Middle Made fashion-design challenge. 在秋天, middle schoolers race scooters in the annual 巴黎圣母院, and each spring brings the impressive eighth-grade synchronized swim show. Tradition is woven into the fabric of Middle Level life, including grade-specific and all-Middle Level activities. Dressing up for the Halloween Parade, 学术碗, 姐妹关系项目, celebrating Seder Meal, and hosting guests on Grandparents Day are just some of the traditions which add spirit and fun to the day!
