IND will be walking tall in the 20th Annual Holiday Parade on The Avenue at White Marsh this Saturday, December 1. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. so get there early to line the streets and show the IND spirit. Proud to be IND!
We ended the holiday week with a fun for all IND tradition, POWDER PUFF. Seniors (yellow class) versus Juniors (green class) in an exciting, thrill to the end, sisterhood rivalry of flag football. Seniors ruled in a 32 to 18 win. Do not underestimate IND’s juniors as they will be back next year…game on!
From November 9-11, the JPIC department and faculty members from AHA, IND and NDP held a Forum at Villa Notre Dame for a selected group of 18 students to discuss the topic of gun violence.
The forum, “Addressing Gun Violence in Our Schools and Communities,” included a robust agenda that included reflections, prayers, and several speakers. The highlights included a speaker from Sandy Hook Promise addressing “Gun Violence in America Today,” and Kelsey Reeder, led the group in “Handling Difficult Conversations.”
The planned outcomes for the students to take away from this weekend included having the opportunity to reflect on the Gospel and the practice of non-violence, to gain personal and national-level knowledge on issues around gun violence, to build skill development towards advocacy and conducting difficult conversations, and to create action plans for their respective schools.
IND’s growing a global heart; serving our local community day was a full day of excitement for ALL! Starting with SSND Foundation Day liturgy, breakout speaker sessions where students engaged in hands-on service sessions (Sandwich making for the homeless, Halloween cards for a nursing home, toiletry bags for victims of abuse/human trafficking) a salsa band to kick things up and an over the top pep rally.
A special shout out to the Diamond Girls from Govans Elementary who joined us on our special day
Community-Faith-Service, three things that perfectly describe our beloved IND! #indofmd

In Java class, IND students were learning about sub-classes and methods. Students applied this lesson by thinking through how they would instruct a robot to write the word “HI” by placing dots on a grid. After collaborating to write the needed code on the board, students tested the program by literally walking through it on a floor grid using large chess pieces to represent the robot and the dots. The combination of hand-writing code, acting out the commands, and running it on the laptops will help the students prepare for the challenging AP Computer Science exam! Well done future coders!
Despite the torrential downpour of rain, IND was out and about at the bilingual BabyFest in Patterson Park. Students helped with providing information, giveaways, and activities for the children. BabyFest is a collaborative effort between the Baltimore Medical System and other agencies that form the B’more for Healthy Babies programs.
IND - in the community, for the community, supporting the community!
AMAZING! IND students in the first class of the PLTW Biomedical Program, “Principles of Biomedical Science” set up a surreal crime scene. Crime scene investigators would have been impressed! Keep up the good work ladies!
The first day of New Student Orientation. Class of 2022 felt welcomed as soon as they walked through IND’s front doors and their new relationships already feel like a “sisterhood.” At IND, sisterhood is as important as curriculum. Can’t wait to see the activities planned for tomorrow! IND PROUD! #indofmd
