Virtual Valentine’s Silent Auction ND Service Project 2021
Our goal... to raise $40,000 for Smiles thru Lindsey. The class of 2021 has proudly chosen The Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation as this year's charity. The Smiles Thru Lindsey Endowment Fund was created in 2015 after Lindsey Kathleen More, a graduate of Notre Dame, tragically took her life at the age of 22. The Foundation provides mental health awareness and education through school programs, public speeches, and fundraising events. Our hope is to support Lindsey’s dream to raise money and much needed awareness to help break the stigma for children, teens and young adults who are fighting a mental illness.
Notre Dame students have raised more than $600,000 through the service project in the past 13 years. Join us. Be part of the legacy. See Mrs Nivens for more info.

Please read the following information about the student resources that are available from Castle Rock Research. We have been privileged to work with this Edmonton-based company to access quality materials to support students, teachers, and parents. Over the past 25 years, more than one million students in Alberta have used The KEY Study Guides and the SNAP Workbooks to prepare for their in-class tests and end-of-year assessments.
This year, more than ever before, the evolving K-12 education landscape is seeing a shift to digital delivery with an emphasis on engaging and relevant content. In keeping with the focus on 21st century learning and the changes necessitated by the current health concerns, Castle Rock Research is offering our families a fully digital solution, SOLARO.
WHAT IS SOLARO?
SOLARO (Student Oriented Learning, Assessment, and Reporting Online) is a comprehensive digital resource that provides all the benefits and features of castle Rock’s printed guides with the added value of more robust content and many more practice questions. The same year-end tests from THE KEY are available in SOLARO, along with the released questions from the latest diploma exams. Some of the many exciting features of SOLARO are:
Engages students – creates learning pathways specific to each student's strengths while bringing attention to areas requiring additional review.
Accessible at home or at school – useful as a supplemental resource that reinforces concepts covered in the classroom.
Individual student accounts – limitless practice tests for every course
provides students with an alternative to item banks.
Robust content – mix of text, multimedia, video, and interactive content.
Data-Driven Reporting – gives users meaningful insight into performance at the most granular curriculum level.
Parental Access – Parents are able to connect to their children’s accounts to view five different reports.
Available for every platform – web or mobile (iOS, Android, and Windows).
More courses – SOLARO is available for additional Courses that are not currently offered in print.
Castle Rock Research is maintaining their policy of educational discounts by offering SOLARO at a rate of $20.00 per student for an annual license (compared to $199.00 retail price). While the cost of one print resource is approximately $20.00, one SOLARO licence will provide each student with unlimited access for up to ten courses for 1 year, for roughly the same price of one print resource.
As a 100% digital solution, SOLARO eliminates the need to print and deliver physical products. We hope you will join us on a new path of helping students to reach their highest level of achievement. For families interested in purchasing THE KEY Study Guides, SNAP Workbooks, Problem Solved, and Class Notes, these print publications will also remain available.
Please place your order online at https://schoolorders.solaro.com/4471 between February 1 and February 19, 2021. All print orders will be individually packaged and delivered to the school for students to pick up.
