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:
  • Mrs. Irene Maquiñana  0995- 554-3645;
  • Mrs. Virginia Castor 0917 3114970   and
  • 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
year 2020-2021) via online payments to the school’s bank accounts as follows:

  • Account Name : Notre Dame of Greater Manila
    Account Number: 3110 0033 22
    BPI – 11th Avenue Branch, Grace Park, Caloocan City
  • Account Name : Notre Dame of Greater Manila
    Account Number : 228-7-228-50773-0
    Metrobank Tugatog Malabon Branch

A scanned copy of the deposit should be sent to:

businessoffice.ndgm@gmail.com, with student’s number & complete name,
grade level & section (SY 2019-2020). This will be acknowledged while the
Official Receipt will be sent to you upon resumption of work.

For inquiries regarding your outstanding balance(s), if any, you may send email

We thank you for your continued support and trust to Notre Dame of Greater Manila.
We request for your patience and kind indulgence during these trying times. We
remain committed to lead in whole-person learning and evangelization in nurturing
compassionate and passionate young individuals, no matter the circumstance.
Let us continue to pray for the safety and protection of everyone and for the comfort
of those who may be suffering and grieving brought by the pandemic and may the
Divine Providence allow that this crisis will end soon.

To : NDGM Parents and Community
Re: Response to COVID-19 Emergency

The present exigencies brought about by the COVID-19 evidently define that we are at a very trying time. The daily news tells that the situation globally and locally is getting worse, which calls us to conscientiously respond by weighing up the pros and cons of our consequent decisions. Let the community be assured that our foremost priority is the safety of our stakeholders, most especially that of our students.

After the recent directives from the concerned government authorities regarding the extension of the suspension of classes and community quarantine in the National Capital Region, we have come up with the following actions and guidelines:

1. The remaining school days of SY 2019-2020 are
cancelled.

2. The 4th quarter examinations are likewise cancelled. The students’ 4th quarter
grade will be based on the 4th quarter class standing.

3. The following activities are therefore cancelled :
• Nursery Year-end Program
• Grade 6 & Grade 12 AGAPE Celebrations
• Grades 1 – 5 and Grades 7 – 11 Recognition
Ceremonies
• Summer Trainings of Varsity Players

4. The following culminating activities are postponed to later
dates after the lifting of the suspension of classes,
provided that a favorable situation permits. Specific
guidelines for precautionary measures will be followed:
• Kindergarten Culminating Activity
• Grade 6 Graduation
• Grade 10 Moving Up and Grade 12 Graduation
Ceremonies

5. The students’ personal belongings will be released to
parents during the issuance of the report cards at a later
date.

6. The regular enrollment period will push through as
scheduled on MAY 4-29, 2020.

Let us continue to pray and ask for God’s guidance, protection and compassion.

In Notre Dame,

REV. FR. JULITO C. DELA CRUZ, JR., OMI
School Director
