A ‘Crepe Day’ to remember!
Wednesday, Oct. 17, marked the Anniversary of Notre Dame Academy’s founding Sisters’ Order, Institute de l’ Union-Chrétienne de Saint Chaumond. The Sisters’ Order has been caring and educating children all over the world for 360 years and Notre Dame Academy is privileged to have three of these Sisters as part of its students’ daily lives.
To honor the Sisters and their Order, a cast of Notre Dame Academy students, supported by their families and school staff, performed the annual reenactment of the founding of the Sisters’ Order. The history and reenactment dates back to days of the French Revolution. The celebration continued through the school day as each student enjoyed the delectable tradition of French crepes. The crepes were handcrafted by various families and served by parent volunteers. Each year the students of Notre Dame Academy look forward to the delicious “Crepe Day” celebration.
