SPIRIT FRIDAYS – A few stipulations: students still need to be covered over their shoulders and within two inches of the knee. Any spirit wear that offends other students or teachers will be worked with on a case-by-case basis. If in doubt, send your student with an alternate outfit. If your student doesn’t want to participate in the designated dress for the day, they should wear regular Friday uniform.

Friday, May 20: Casual Day: Break out those polka dot pajamas, yoga pants and sweats, it’s super casual day. Please no slippers (usual shoe rules apply) and please note it’s not “What You Wear to Bed” day, so you may have to ADD clothing items to make your casual wear school appropriate. (Also note: This is 4th grade Rendezvous, so 4th graders should tune into their teachers for information on attire).

JR HIGH SPIRIT DAY HELP – May 20th at the JH from 10:20 to noon, click here to sign up: http://vols.pt/jBfQjW
FIELD DAY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – Field Day is in 2 weeks and we still need about 40 more volunteers to run stations. The activities and supplies are all provided. Please go to Volunteer Spot to sign up or contact Julie Linford at busybeepreschool@hotmail.com.

While the winning name is not an exact translation, it was inspired by Diana Dearden’s idea!

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 [...]
