Notre Dame Schools Faculty/Staff Retreat Better Together II

Ready to join your fellow colleagues on an outdoor adventure?  Remembering John Muir, we are inspired to get outside.  He encouraged, “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” 

For our second “Better Together” retreat of Notre Dame Schools on Friday, September 14th, you will have a choice to walk among the canopy of trees at Holden Arboretum or to paddle down the upper Cuyahoga River.  Once finished with our morning adventure, we will reconvene as a large group at NDS.  In either setting, you are called to get to know your fellow teachers and staff while enjoying the beauty in nature.  For this adventure, please wear school spirit wear with jeans, shorts, pants, etc.  Get ready to move and to be moved.  Breakfast, lunch, and transportation from/to 13000 Auburn provided.  Our day will begin at 8am and conclude by 3:30pm with Mass.  So that we may plan transportation accordingly, please make your choice in the activities below.  Ready to be “Better Together”?
