Dear NDGM Parents, Students and Employees,

Peace and well-being.

We are hopeful that you and your respective family members are safe and healthy in
this entire Enhanced Community Quarantine period. It is our fervent prayer for
everyone since nothing is more important this time than our foremost concern for the
safety of all.

 

Closure of the School Year 2019-2020

For the school year 2019-2020 which abruptly ended on March 13, 2020, please be
advised of the following, with strict compliance to school and government protocols:

  1. Culminating activities, recognition and graduation ceremonies of Nursery
    and Kinder, Grades 6, 10 and 12 are definitively cancelled.
  2. Student’s report cards, medals, certificates/diplomas and their personal
    belongings will be turned over to the parents, guardians or authorized
    representatives with proper identification, the date of which will be
    announced as soon as the quarantine protocols allow us access to our
    school offices. Prior to release of all report cards, kindly allow and give us
    ample time to finish our pending tasks.

 

Enrollment and Formal Opening of SY 2020-2021

  1. NDGM tentatively sets its opening of classes on AUGUST 26, 2020 subject to
    adjustment upon release of DepEd’s Memorandum.
  2. Given the current situation, enrollment will be through ONLINE MODE. The details
    and procedures will be announced later.
  3. ENTRANCE TEST will NOT be required for the school year 2020-2021. Admission of
    new students/transferees will be based on the academic and conduct grade
    requirements. Inquiries may be coursed through:

  • Ms. Dahnally Flores  0961-399-9759  Monday to Friday, 8:00AM to 4:00PM.

 

Mode of Instruction in the “New Normal” Setting

NDGM will definitely use and maximize the existing Learning Management
Systems which are:

  • Phoenix Aralinks for Elementary
  • DIWA’s Genyo and
    Technokids ICT Curriculum for High School
  • Similar and related systems will be
    considered. A separate letter will be released regarding the systems/procedures
    on the new delivery mode of instruction.

The “new normal” definitely poses greater challenges, thus, proper orientation
will be provided to all concerned. Likewise, we expect parents’ commitment
in this endeavor.

In relation to the school’s transition to online learning, may we request you to
accomplish the online learning readiness survey which you can access through
this link : https://forms.gle/Bbs6xE2RhHxokgWNA. Your feedback will help us design
our learning model around your children’s needs.

 

Settling of Previous Year’s Financial Accounts

We believe that nobody has been spared from the ill effects of this
pandemic/global health crisis, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, socially
and financially. Nevertheless, NDGM appeals to the generosity of our dear
parents who have outstanding balances on tuition fees for school year 2019-
2020, if you may settle your accounts (preferably prior to enrollment for school

Divine Providence allow that this crisis will end soon.
