What is Grand Beginnings?

More than a fundraiser, Grand Beginnings is an opportunity to support the school’s educational needs, both in classrooms and in various auxiliary areas. By attending the event you are helping decrease tuition costs, update our classrooms, provide healthy lunches for all students, and meet a host of needs for students and teachers alike. Grand Beginnings has traditionally been one of NDA’s larger fundraisers, and our largest community event.

Join us Saturday, May 4, 2024. Stay tuned for exciting details on this year’s event, which will be held at MN Valley Country Club in Bloomington.
