The 9th Annual Walkathon and Notre Dame Day is scheduled for May 18, 2018.
The day begins with a lively pep rally and continues with field day activity stations, a special lunch provided by the NDPA, and a dance party during recess. In the afternoon, students begin the mile walkathon. Parents, grandparents and friends are welcome to volunteer that day at different activity stations.  It is always such a fun day!
The 2017 walkathon was a huge success with over 88% participation and over" $31,000 raised by NDES students to support special programs at NDES. 
Contributions to the Walkathon are fully tax-deductible. 
 Thank you to all our 2017-2018 Walkathon Sponsors for supporting the Walkathon!
