IMMERSION LOTTERY NOW OPEN, though this Saturday, May 15 - Current exposure students, in grades K-5, are invited to apply. Students who have already been in Immersion do not need to reapply. Please fill out all fields correctly to ensure there are no problems when we do the drawing: https://northdavisprep.sjc1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4MU6FXPfqPzAqou
Once the lottery closes, student names will be randomly selected according to the number of Immersion spots we currently have available in each grade. You will be notified by email before the end of the school year if your student's name was drawn.
ATTENTION NDPA VOLUNTEERS - POET has a new program to track volunteer hours! The program is called HelpCounter and will be an easy tool for parents to input and track volunteer hours and sign up for volunteer opportunities. This program is separate from the school’s system, keepntrack. Volunteers will need to sign on to keepntrack for any onsite school activities.
How to get started:
1 - Submit a volunteer application online by following the link. You will need to provide your name and email. helpcounterweb.com/welcome/?en=270683085
2 - After submitting your application, watch for an approval email (check your junk folder). This email will have a link for creating a home access account. You can create your account online or on the app. (Search the app store for HelpCounter Home Access)
3 - Once you have created and logged onto your account you can add volunteer hours (by activity or classroom), fill out an interest form and sign up for volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers interested in applying for POET Spain K-7th Scholarships
No K-7th scholarships will be awarded for this school year (20/21). However, your volunteer hours for this year will count towards your total hours for the next school year (21/22) which will provide you with more tickets for the lottery. We will award double the scholarships for the next school year (21/22). For your hours to be eligible you must provide a detailed description of your volunteer hours including your activities and what classroom, teacher or staff you were working with.
If you have any questions or concerns contact Kira Lambert by text 801-368-7199 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
