POET – “Part Of Every Thing” – everyone is a member
What is POET?
POET is the parent organization at NDPA. Like a PTA or PTO, our POET helps organize special activities for our school and advocate for our students.
To us, POET stands for “Part Of Every Thing.” All parents are automatically members, and involved in all aspects of student life at NDPA. There are zero membership dues; your contribution as a volunteer makes you part of POET.
How do I get involved?
