DOLLAR DRESS DAY - THIS FRIDAY is our first Dollar Dress Day of the year! What does that mean? It means students can wear non-uniform clothing! In return, we ask that students donate one dollar to the NDPA field trip fund. For information and dress guidelines, see here: Students are welcome to wear NDPA spirit shirts or uniform.

Save the Dollar Dress Day morning coin scramble and pay for the whole year in advance for only $9.00 per student! You can pay with cash or check in the office or online at the following links. If you would like to pay for more than one student online, enter your oldest student's name, then put the full amount in the "other" field. This will pop up a box to enter your remaining students' names and grades.

Please note, paying with a debit or credit card incurs a $1.50 or 3% charge, whichever is greater. You can save a little by selecting the e-check option, which only charges $0.50. You may also bring cash or check to the office.

HOODIES - POET is still taking pre-orders for NDPA hoodies. The deadline to order is Friday, September 10 You can stop by the POET desk in either building to pick up an order form or print an order form here: - You can pay cash or check in an envelope with an order form in the POET box at each school.

PICTURE DAY - Get ready! Picture day is Wednesday, September 15. Students must wear a collared UNIFORM shirt for school pictures. We try to get students in at the beginning of class, so make sure you're on time that day. To order photos in advance, go to and enter school code 59583XF.

ROAR WEEK - We are excited to announce ROAR week, September 13-17! "ROAR" stands for Respect, Ownership, Achievement, Responsibility. During ROAR week, we talk with students about what these things mean and how they can apply them at NDPA. Students may wear jeans all week, with an NDPA spirit shirt or regular uniform shirt on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. A collared UNIFORM shirt must be worn on WEDNESDAY, September 15 for picture day. POET will provide fun lunchtime activities during the week.
