APPLY NOW FOR POET VP - Would you like to have a positive impact at NDPA? Consider being Vice-President for our 2020-2021 POET Board. The duties of VP are: "The Vice President shall be a member of the POET board, and in the absence of the President, shall perform the duties of the President. The Vice President shall be an aide to the President and perform such duties as are assigned by the President or the POET Board. After serving one (1) term as Vice President, the Vice President shall automatically assume the office of the President the following year." In regards to "duties as assigned," currently the VP has been overseeing the Book Fairs, LEO nights, Barnes & Noble Day, the elementary marquee, and participating in the POET/Admin meetings. It is also beneficial for the VP to attend the POET sponsored events (Fun Run, FUNdraising Auction, Field Day, etc.)

From Stephanie Norton, current POET President: "I have loved working with POET, and I can confidently say that the person who is VP will have a great opportunity working with Karla Alpizar Veloz, as President. POET is a great force for good at NDPA and it is a pleasure to work with the dedicated individuals of the POET Board. Please let me know if you are interested by replying to Stephanie Norton"

BOOK FAIR - In case you miss the chance to shop at our book fair you can still support our school and find awesome books online!

Also, big shout out to all the people that helped during the Book fair and the uniform sale!
