We will leave Weber State at 12:43 pm then, after taking the bus and FrontRunner, arrive back at the Clearfield FrontRunner Station at 1:24 pm.

WHAT’S IN A NAME? – As you can see, we’ve chosen a new name for Friday Notes! First, thank you to all who entered your ideas on Facebook; there were so many great suggestions, it was difficult to choose. We really wanted a name that better reflects our school, especially our Spanish focus, so we translated many of the suggestions into Spanish. While the winning name is not an exact translation, it was inspired by Diana Dearden’s idea! The new name is: NDPA…¡Qué Pasa! For those of you who don’t know, “¡qué pasa!!” means “what’s up!” Congratulations, Diana, there is a prize waiting for you in the Elementary office!

PRIDE WEEK – will be Sept 15th – 19th. Each day during the week we will have a different area of focus such as: unity, kindness, respect, empathy and our vision of the community we want NDPA to be. We’ll also have a series of lunchtime activities, hosted [...]
