We are so proud of former NDEC ESL student, Luis, who reports he is doing great at his job and in his life. He returned to NDEC to visit his teacher, Susan. Luis is currently working in the meat department at Market Basket in Reading, MA. Luis hopes to return to class soon as he knows learning English will help him continue to advance in his job.

Notre Dame Education Center-Lawrence is a bridge of hope transforming lives through education for life.

Mission Accomplished!
Students at NDEC-Lawrence, along with staff and Board Members raised more than $7,500 to be applied to rent and utilities for April and May. With a substantial donation from Enterprise Bank, NDEC purchased a large screen TV that was raffled on April 10.
In addition to the TV, a handmade “I Spy” quilt was donated by Sr. Gerry Stanton, SNDden .  The quilt is intended to help little children match pictures with words, as in the famous “I Spy” Picture Books.
NDEC Students who sold more than 10 tickets were entered into another raffle where they were able to win a cash gift!
Winners were selected by members of the staff of Enterprise Bank at an assembly in the school where Yosibel Valdez won the TV. Sr. Fran Murphy won the quilt and Josefina Estevez was a student winner. We are extremely grateful to Floridelsa Hernandez who sold more than 50 tickets on her own! She will also be recognized for her effort.

We, at NDEC, would like to express our sincere gratitude to the friends and family of Mae Burns for their generous donations in her memory. Mae’s daughter, Marcia, is a long time member of the Development Committee at Notre Dame Education Center, who, in many ways, has contributed to the vision and mission here. Our prayers and thoughts are with Marcia and her family at this time.

Grand Prize Winner, Yosibel, is our Rosetta Stone Computer Lab Coach!
