Boys Soccer:
There is a soccer clinic at the jr. high this Friday, August 6, 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Tryouts will be Monday, August 9 through Wednesday, August 11, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. For questions regarding soccer please contact Brandon Rodriquez at

Cross Country:
Practices are currently at the jr. high on Monday mornings at 7:00 AM. Times will change when school starts. If interested in helping with Cross Country or questions about the team, please contact Aimee Bichler at

August 9-13, from 7:00-8:30 AM, we will hold pre-tryout practices at the elementary building. We will go over the basics of passing, setting, and on-court positions during that week. Attendance at these practices is optional and will not disqualify someone from tryouts.

Tryouts will be Saturday, August 14, from 9:00-10:30 AM, at the Jr. High building. An email will be sent later that day with roster information.

The plan is to practice from 6:00-7:30 AM, Monday-Thursday thereafter, but the frequency may change over the course of the season depending on factors not yet considered or known. Contact Travis Nicholsen if you have any questions,

Athletics positions open:
We are looking for assistant coaches for volleyball, soccer, and cross country. If you are interested, please contact Lanette Rupert,

What's LEO Night? Since NDPA is a commuter school, we want to give friends and families a chance to get to know each other, thus creating a greater, tighter NDPA community. These nights give our families a great excuse to get together! Restaurants also give back a portion of the event sales to POET, who uses the funds for student activities, school improvement, and Spain scholarships. Click here to see more information about POET:
