Notre Dame Academy is proud to be home to two winners of a nationwide essay contest sponsored by The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Students in the 4th and 5th grades at Notre Dame participated in the “Dear George Washington” Contest which asked them to write a letter to President Washington on his inauguration day telling him what to focus on during his first term. Haiden Grenier won first place in the 5th grade division and Gina Ha was awarded second place in the 4th grade division. This is the fifth year in a row that Notre Dame students have been recognized for their historical writing skills. Congratulations to Haiden and Gina on their outstanding achievements!
