Molly Mares spotlight

Notre Dame of De Pere Catholic School Principal Spotlight

Today we are highlighting Notre Dame of De Pere Catholic School’s principal, Ms. Molly Mares!

We asked her, “Principal Mares, why do you choose to work for GRACE and particularly, Notre Dame of De Pere Catholic School?”

She responded with, “The short answer is that God called me to this role and He has been working hard ever since to qualify me to do it. Like most working in education, I believe in being a champion for children and have a commitment to lifelong learning. God specifically pointed me toward leading at Notre Dame of De Pere and it is truly a joy. Walking my own faith journey alongside our students and families is the greatest gift.”

As the NDDP community can attest, Principal Mares is a joy to have around, but we wanted to know; “What is a fun fact about you?”

Her answer was, “I can easily say the alphabet backward!”

We are so blessed by dedicated and talented leaders such as Principal Mares. Join us in thanking her for her commitment to Catholic Education!
