Mr. Todd Forman, Community Service Director
What’s the hardest part of being the Community Service Director?
“Well my chair is really uncomfortable…
No, I’m just kidding. I think the hardest part is knowing what I want to do versus what I have the time and energy to do. Because while I love the trips, I don’t necessarily enjoy the behind the scenes work.”

“My mom is exactly like me. I hear that all the time.
I was the last person she opened up her eyes to. I got 4 years to say goodbye, but also got to see my mom slowly deteriorate in a sense. I think its hard remembering her as the person she was before she was sick. That makes it more difficult.”

It’s a typical Thursday morning at Mount Notre Dame. Some girls are cheerful and excited for the day, while others lay in the foyer trying to catch a few extra minutes of sleep. Looking around, one area in particular catches my attention – The Main Office. It’s one of the busiest places in the school throughout the day. Today is no different. I decided to move in a little closer to see what really goes on here.
At about 7:15a.m., I notice a few girls walking in and out, but other than that, the office is quite bare. However, peeking into the office about 10 minutes later, I have to maneuver myself around a plethora of girls standing with backpacks in tow. Continue reading “A typical day for the Main Office”

“On Christmas Eve my family gets into our pajamas and takes a picture.”
The various energies flooding the halls of MND as I exit my homeroom are not at all hard to pick up on.

Flex time is used by MND students in a wide variety of ways, and is deeply treasured by the girls that depend on it every day.
As soon as announcements are done, girls pack the hallways and go on their way to accomplish whatever they can and want to. Depending on what it is students set out to do, the environment can be either stressful or relaxing. Continue reading “Flex time is a necessity for all types of students”
