First Semester Exam Schedule

It's that time of year - EXAMS!

Exams will begin on Tuesday, December 18. There are some semester classes that will test during regular class hours on Monday.

All students are expected to report to exams ON TIME!  If you are late for an exam, you will have less time to complete the exam. Please bring a pencil and your textbook if you are taking a semester class. The teacher will let students know if books should be turned in. 

During an exam period, no one may leave the classroom until the bell rings.  Students should bring something with them to read or study after they complete the exam. Students should remain quiet during the entire exam period. Even if every student in a classroom is finished with the exam, the classroom next door might still be testing.

During break-periods snacks will be sold from the concession stand.

Good Luck!


Exam Prayer

God of Wisdom, I thank you for the knowledge gained and the learning experiences of the semester. I come to you and ask you to illuminate my mind and heart.
Let your Holy Spirit be with me as I prepare for exams, guiding my studies and giving me insight so that I can perform to the best of my ability.
Grant me the strength to handle the pressure of these days, the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge, and the ability to keep a proper perspective through it all. Help me to keep in mind what is truly important, even as I focus my time and energy on these exams.
Finally, may I sense your peace in knowing that I applied myself to the challenges of this day. I ask this through Christ our Lord.

St. Thomas Aquinas, patron of students, pray for us.
St. Joseph of Cupertino, patron of test takers, pray for us.
St. Francis of Assisi, our patron, pray for us.
Notre Dame, Our Mother and Guide, pray for us.

(From Franciscan University of Steubenville)

Notre Dame students, led by Miss Mary Beth Vollink, competed in the bridge competition at Southeast Missouri State.  The competition is hosted by Missouri Department of Transportation and is in it's 15th year.  Students must design and build a model bridge using balsa wood, thread, and glue. They are awarded for the weight of their bridge and how much it can hold.  There is also an award for the most aesthetic bridge and for the computer-based electronic bridge. 

The students who participated were Dawson Compass, Emma Barnes, Addie Grim, Alex Harold, Linda Hu, Benton Keran, Brock Lange, Adam Moser, Julia Walker, and Andrew West. 

Notre Dame students took 3rd place based on overall performance! Dawson Compas took 2nd place for building the lightest bridge that carried the greatest load.  Congratulations!

Cape Girardeau, Mo -- The principal, Brother David Anthony Migliorino, O.S.F., of Notre Dame Regional High School announced that Hannah Dodson has been named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.  A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.

Hannah is the daughter of Dr. Rob and Heather Dodson of Cape Girardeau. She is on the girls Volleyball team and manages the boys Volleyball team.  Hannah is a member of National Honor Society, National Art Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society, and Future Business Leaders of America.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC.  “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.  We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
