Our NEW Web site address is
The first semester of the school year is behind us, and what a wonderful start
we have had. With the support of our
parishes, parents and supporters we
continue to see great things going on
here at Notre Dame. Our enrollment
continues to increase, and our assessment scores continue to improve. We
have had some great additions to our
staff this year including our new assistant principal, Chris Schwarz. This is Mr. Schwarz’s first administrative position and the first time Notre
Dame has had a PK-12 assistant principal. He has brought a lot of energy and
enthusiasm to his position. He implemented the Friday Five program to the
elementary wing that recognizes the good things students do. His tortoise,
Vladimir, is now a traveling visitor between the elementary classrooms. He
also is overseeing and acts as site coordinator for all of the high school students who are taking online courses. In his spare time he enjoys running and
has currently started taking saxophone lessons from our band director, Mr.
Teater. Mr. Schwarz’s wife, Brianne, is a Spanish teacher at MonmouthRoseville High School, and they make their home in Monmouth with their
English Bulldog, Wally.
Again, thank you for all of your support and dedication to Notre Dame. Without you we could not fulfill our mission to educate children.

Former teachers will be missed by ND family
ND is mourning the loss of a couple of beloved former educators.
Kathy Eilenstine, business education teacher and National Honor Society adviser at ND for over 23 years,
passed away in October. During her decades at Notre Dame, she truly made an impact on all the students she
taught with her cheery smile, creative class projects, expertise and expectations.
Mrs. E taught Business I and II, Recordkeeping, Typing, Accounting, Word Processing, and Computer Survey.
She also taught classes at Southeastern Community College. She helped to pioneer the area’s school-to-work
movement in the early 90’s and introduced career education to ND. From local businesses, she enlisted jobshadowing mentors for her “job skills” program to expose interested students to various paths.
Mrs. Eilenstine particularly relished having leaders from the Junior Achievement program visit to stress the
relevance of course material to the “real” world. She also coached students as they competed and won honors
in the JA Titan Business Contest.
Active in extracurricular programs, Mrs. Eilenstine was the National Honor Society sponsor at Notre Dame.
She expected excellence from her students in scholarship, leadership, character, and service (the criteria of NHS membership) and
established Honor Roll Brunches, community service projects, leadership events, and the “Student of the Month/Year” recognition at ND. The NHS “Student of the Year” award will now be called “The Kathy Eilenstine Student of the Year” award to honor her
memory.
Following her retirement in 2009, Mrs. E had been living in the Des Moines area near her daughters and their
families. (Her husband Ray died in 2011.) Before she left Notre Dame, Mrs. Eilenstine wrote to the students
here that “Notre Dame will always have a special place in my heart.” The feeling is mutual.
Angela Adams (right), former Notre Dame Spanish instructor and substitute teacher as well as an alumna
of the school, died in November in Burlington. Though she taught most of her career in Burlington’s public
schools, Mrs. A actually began her teaching career at Notre Dame in the early 70s. Later, after retiring from
Burlington High School, she spent the past several years as a frequent sub at ND where she became a favorite
of the students and faculty. A graduate of ND’s Class of 1960, Mrs. Adams remained loyal and generous to
her alma mater in recent years. She will be missed.

Strike up the band!
The “music man” has come to ND!
With a background in both instrumental and vocal music, experience in performing and
composing, and an enthusiasm for education, the position of band director here seemed
a perfect fit for Scott Teater. So, when the job came open last spring, he applied and was
hired immediately.
Since joining the Notre Dame staff, it’s clear that he’s in the right place.
Of course, Scott Teater is no stranger to the ND family. In fact, his own family is a
prominent part of the school community. His father, Ron, has been technology coordinator and teacher for the past nine years. His
mom, Becky, taught middle school students here for two years, served as library assistant before that, and is a frequent substitute
teacher at ND.
Though it’s only been a few months, it seems as if Scott has been here much longer. He has definitely made an impact on the music
program. Indeed, his presence was immediately felt when he introduced the formation of a drum line the first week of school. From
just a few students, the numbers in the group have swelled to the current total of 23. They call themselves “Angelic Beats” and follow
the motto, “Such Drums…Much Wow.” They certainly have “wowed” audiences, particularly with their performance at the fall concert with the “glow in the dark” drum sticks.
Enrollment in regular band classes is growing too. Scott has renewed interest in the instrumental music department by bringing back
the pep band and jazz band. He also hopes to regenerate the marching band in the future. “Band is just the coolest thing, and I want
my students to experience the highest caliber program,” he says.
Scott’s own personal talent and passion for teaching resonate with the students. He was actually first inspired to be a percussionist
because of the Boy Scout
Explorer Post his dad was
in charge of. As a child,
Scott would listen to them
practice their Indian dance
performances in the Teater
basement, and he grew to
love the rhythmic sounds.
He went on to play the
clarinet for one year in fifth
grade and then switched to
percussion in sixth grade
and continued through
high school.
Other interests intrigued
Scott in high school as well. He participated in speech contests. He earned many honors including the Louis Armstrong Band Award
and was a finalist for the Optimist Club Youth of the Year. His experience in public speaking caught the notice of speech coach MJ
Miller, who has sought his expertise in helping with the oratorical and debate contests second semester.
After high school Scott went on to Southeastern Community College and Iowa Wesleyan College. He pursued a career that would
allow him to share his love of music, earning his degree in music education. He taught 5-12 choir and high school show choir at Holy
Trinity before coming to ND this fall.
In addition to Notre Dame musical events, Scott is highly involved in community music activities. He participates in Burlington
Municipal Band, Southeast Iowa Band, Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra, the Bel Canto Chorale, and Treble Clef Club.
Scott is also deeply interested in liturgical music. He has engaged talented ND musicians to add special accompaniment for all school
masses (such as flute players Ashley Lohmann and Lydia Becker). He also is the music director for his own church, First Christian
Church. In what spare time remains, Scott is involved in volunteer work, most notably the Boy Scouts. An Eagle Scout himself, he
serves as a Scout leader for Troop 25 and is a Venture Crew adviser for a Concert Band Venture Crew (Crew 88) he started in January
of 2014 based out of Carthage, IL.
Scott is certainly glad to be at Notre Dame. “Everyone has been warm and welcoming. I am having a blast. This is a wonderful community of faith.” He adds, “I enjoy coming to work everyday and helping all of my students create beautiful and improved sounds. I
see my calling as planting my musical seeds and watching them grow and blossom into magnificent musical blessings.”
Who knows where Scott will take the Notre Dame band program next? Based on the enthusiasm of the students such as the drum
line members, one thing is for sure: the beat goes on!

Seniors tour NYC
For the sixth time, a trip to New York
City was offered to the Notre Dame
Senior Class. Mark Mayfield, a parent of three ND grads, a native New
Yorker, and an experienced traveler,
once again led a group of senior students to the “Big Apple” in a four-day
trip in November.
Assisted by chaperones MJ Miller
and Ron Glasgow, the journey was
academic in nature with students giving brief oral presentations along the
way. They learned about the history of
the city, our nation, and the stories of
the immigrants who came to the US
by way of New York. They also visited
famous locations and landmarks.
NDES FAST Test Results Shine
Notre Dame Elementary students participated in the
state-wide FAST reading screener in October. FAST is
a quick indicator of potential reading problems. Notre
Dame students did very well overall. Teachers like this new test
because it is comprehensive while
taking minimal time to administer. Since it is done online, it is automatically scored and makes data
available immediately to be used
for planning instruction. The test
is administered in the fall, winter,
and spring.. NDES first grade
teacher Sharon Sommerfelt (above) attended the FAST
training and coordinated the testing of ND students.
Highlights of the journey included the
Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Tenement Museum, Columbia University,
Brooklyn Bridge (seen in photo at left),
Freedom Tower and the World Trade
Center site, Intrepid Aircraft Carrier, Grand Central Terminal, Times
Square, Chinatown, Empire State
Building, Central Park, and the Highline Linear Park. They were also able
to attend two Broadway shows.
Over 125 students have participated
in Mayfield’s “New York Trip” since
2008. Future seniors hope to continue
to take advantage of the experience,
and ND is grateful to Mayfield for
organizing this opportunity.
Glasgow returns as AD--
He’s baaack!
Ron Glasgow retired as ND Middle/
High School Principal last summer. His time off was short-lived,
however.
Last spring, when Bill Maupin was hired to be the new administrator, Glasgow had split the AD job description with the expectation that Bill would be the next AD and Phil Meekins would
take the other half of the job description.
But after NDES Principal Jennifer Alongi resigned in August,
Maupin assumed the role of K-12 principal. Since he had moved
to the newly created principal position, he then asked Glasgow
to take on most of his AD duties. “I told him I would help,” said
Glasgow. “It really is a natural fit for me to do this. However, I
had spent many nights at ND events and did not want to return
to that schedule. Bill seems happy with the arrangement, and I
know I am.” Welcome back, Ron!
Angelic artwork by Jordyn
Senior Jordyn Engel (above) displays a mural of an angel she painted in Nita
Carlson’s classroom this fall. Mrs. Carlson encourages students to paint religious
imagery on the walls because it makes the room seem more spiritual. The painting,
she said, “reminds us that angels are watching over us all day.”

From the General Chairs
W
e serve as general chairmen of
the Notre Dame Faith in our Future
capital campaign. We believe in
the mission, goals and future of Notre Dame.
We believe in the Notre Dame family!
It is our privilege to help to continue the
legacy of excellence at Notre Dame. The
commitment and sacrifices of parents,
students, faculty and parishioners - past
and present - has made Notre Dame an
outstanding school. It is now our turn to
prepare Notre Dame for future generations.
Students at Notre Dame need an outstanding learning
environment and there are areas where Notre Dame is urgently
in need of updates. The Faith in Our Future campaign will
ensure our children have the best educational environment
intheyearsahead.Excellencedoesn’tjusthappen.Ittakes
planning, commitment and prayer from all of us.
Notre Dame has consistently contributed to the well-being
of our community and will continue to play an integral role
insoutheastIowa.Weencourageyoutoprayerfullyjoinusin
building the future of Notre Dame. Together we can provide
the best for our children - our future leaders.
Steve Delaney & Gary Hoyer, Campaign Chairmen
It is with great enthusiasm that I endorse and support the Faith in Our Future Capital
Campaign for Burlington Notre Dame Schools. Notre Dame plays a critical role in the
life of the Catholic Church in Burlington and southeast Iowa. I ask for your prayerful
consideration of a sacrificial gift to the campaign that will allow the school to serve
our students and assist in providing an excellent Catholic education for our families
and our community. Catholic schools are a critical factor in forming disciples of Jesus
Christ, and just as critical, for the New Evangelization tasks we now face.”
MoStREv.MaRtInJ.aMoS
Bishop of Davenport
Inspired by our Past
Burlington Notre Dame Catholic Schools have long been known for their
superior academics and the scholastic success of their graduates. While
students have worked hard on their studies, their parents and the Notre
Dame community have been working to improve and maintain the
Notre Dame facilities. Our excellent programs have surpassed the size
and the age of our buildings, particularly the middle school and high
school. To continue to provide an exceptional learning environment, a
significant investment in the schools’ infrastructure is necessary.
Called to Act
To address these concerns, the Notre Dame School Board and its
counterpart at the Notre Dame Foundation, have initiated the Faith in
Our Future, Capital Campaign. The campaign tackles structural items
that must be addressed to keep the schools functioning and attractive
to prospective students and their families. It will also advance the
schools’ academic offerings with funding for new computers, oneto-one student technology curriculum and a complete overhaul of
outdated science labs. Included in this second goal is the addition of
a multipurpose safe room which will provide space for the expansion
of faith formation programs. The new area will enhance the schools’
promotion and support of Catholic values and identity.

Giving to the Notre Dame
Foundation couldn’t be easier
Gifts may be made in a number of ways.
Depending on the specifics of your situation, giving might make financial sense too.
Here are some helpful tips to consider when
making charitable gifts to the Notre Dame
Foundation.
Annual Gifts It’s easy to make one-time or
annual gifts to the Notre Dame Foundation. You can simply fill out and return the
enclosed envelope with your gift.
Planned Giving Including Notre Dame
in your planned giving is also an excellent
way to help keep Catholic education alive
and well in our community. Gifts of cash
are the most popular types of charitable
gifts and are fully deductible. However,
gifts can take the form of a variety of other
assets, including stocks and securities, real
estate, insurance, life income, and personal
property. Each type of gift has different
requirements and benefits for the donor.
For more information, contact the Notre
Dame Foundation Development Director at
319-754-8431 x385.
Giving via your IRA
The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act
of 2008 offers additional giving opportunities for those 701/2 or older who own an
IRA and make regular charitable contributions. Call us for details.
Remembering a Loved One
Memorializing a loved one with a gift to
the Notre Dame Foundation will mean that
Catholic education in the Burtlington area
remains strong and vibrant. Memorials can
be created for specific purposes or can simply support the Notre Dame Foundation.
Contact the Notre Dame Foundation Development Director, 319 754-8431 x385, for
more information on how you can establish
a memorial to the Notre Dame Foundation.

KCDM Catholic radio comes to Notre Dame campus
KCDM has come to ND.
This fall, the local Catholic radio station built a
new studio near the south parking lot on the Notre
Dame campus. The addition promises to be of
benefit to both the station and to ND.
KCDM (which stands for “Know Christ’s Divine
Mercy”) is an FM channel that has been broadcasting in the area since 2002. It provides programing from the Eternal Word Television Network, a
Catholic church-sponsored network that broadcasts
to 220 radio stations throughout the nation.
The KCDM studio had been located in the former
St. Patrick’s school building. With the deteriorating condition of that structure, a new site was
needed for the radio station. The Notre Dame
property was the ideal location.
“We are looking forward to working with the
Catholic school and spreading the Catholic faith,”
says Joe Spillane, one of the founders of KCDM. He
hopes to grow the channel and include ND student
events in its broadcasts.

KCDM is funded by donations and volunteers.
These volunteers raised $12,000 initially to establish
the station and must raise $10,000 annually to meet
operating expenses.
