NOTRE DAME SCHOOL SANTA BARBARA CELEBRATES 40 YEARS
Community & Alumni Invited to Join in Open House Festivities on November 2nd
Named in honor of the seven nuns – all members of the Order of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur – who first established Dolores School at the corner of Anacapa and Figueroa Streets, back in 1906, Notre Dame School is celebrating an important historical milestone. During the school’s 108 year history, this landmark has gone through many transitions, while always remaining a fully accredited Catholic school within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. When Dolores School and Our Lady of Guadalupe School merged in 1974, the choice of a name for this new educational institution became clear. With a tip of the hat to the original Sisters, Notre Dame School was born. To celebrate this 40th year milestone at the venerable downtown campus, the community is invited to attend a free Open House on November 2nd, see sidebar for the day’s schedule. Located in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, close to museums, theaters, and many cultural landmarks, this beautiful campus recently underwent $1,000,000 in capital improvements.
