Resources for Parents

Notre Dame School Parents – Below are several Quick Links to school-related documents.


Notre Dame Home and School Association (HSA)

Much like a PTA, the Notre Dame School HSA provides support to the staff and families of Notre Dame through fellowship, fun and educational support activities.

The dues for the 2016-2017 school year are $35. The HSA holds 2 large fundraisers each year – the Fall Carnival and the Spring Show.

HSA Dues plus the money raised from these 2 events, provide added support to the teachers and staff.  Each year, the HSA provides flu shots to all of the faculty and staff as well as small gifts during Teacher Appreciation Day.

The HSA also provides volunteers for events throughout the school year. This is a great way to meet other parents and it provides an opportunity to come together as a community and support each other as we navigate the waters of raising children with special needs.

Your involvement is an essential part of the success the HSA. Our goal is 100% participation. The percentage of HSA members vs. enrollment is information that is used when the school applies for grants.

The HSA forms are listed below and also located on Renweb under Resource Documents. If you have not joined – it’s not too late!


Affair of the Heart Event

An Affair of the Heart is the annual Dinner & Auction that raises the majority of the money needed for the current school year’s operating budget. The tuition for the 2016/2017 school year is $8,500 but the actual cost of educating each child is over $15,000. The school must raise almost $1 million each year to bridge this gap. Our goal each year is to raise $350,000 at the Affair of the Heart.  An Affair of the Heart will be held onNovember 5th at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.
