Ms. Brickley considers this role to be "the captains of the captains" and adds that their collaboration with the Athletic Department is invaluable.
NDA has been selected to receive the MIAA District H Sportsmanship Award! District H is comprised of all Catholic secondary schools in Massachusetts so this is quite a special honor. Congratulations to our Athletic Department staff, all our coaches, and our athletes! A delegation of student-athletes will be selected to attend the MIAA Sportsmanship Summit at Gillette Stadium on November 14 to accept the award.
Ms. Loux-Turner's Environmental Science class headed to Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset last week to learn about sustainable and organic farming. Students learned about compost and contributed food scraps and yard waste from NDA's kitchen and garden to the compost bins there. Gardening in the greenhouse and in the outdoor garden are also components to the class.
