YEARBOOK COVER CONTEST - It’s that time of year again...Yearbook Cover Contest. Let’s see your creativity!

  • Must include the words “Stronger Together Me. You. Us.”
  • No computer generated photos.
  • Vertical format.
  • No coloring book pages.
  • Remember to put your name and grade on the back of the page. -Be original. Draw, don’t trace.
  • All drawings should be submitted to the office by end of school day, Tuesday, November 23.
  • The winner will be announced when we return from Christmas break.

7TH-9TH FALL BALL - The Fall Ball has returned! Friday, October 22, 1:30-3:00 PM, marks our first dance in a year and a half. As a "masquerade ball" (with a twist), masks are recommended. They can be decorated to match the costuming for more festivity and less COVID-reminding. Parents, please communicate with your student what your expectations are for their mask wearing.

If you are not comfortable with your student attending events at this time, remind them that there are two other dances this year (and dances each year if they're in 7th or 8th grade). It's a hard sell, AND we fully support each family doing what's best for their exposure.

If you'd like to volunteer, we're in desperate need of some extra eyes to make sure this event comes off without a hitch. Email Katie Grover (Anderson) at kgrover@northdavisprep.org if you're available that Friday from 1:30-3:00 PM (no need to come early or stay late).

The INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL UTAH has invited 20 NDPA students to a film making workshop, October 30-November 5, times TBA. This workshop will be presented in Spanish, and is open to Immersion students in grades 7-9. This workshop will teach students how to take a film from idea to screen. Go to www.iffu.net for more information. Contact Mr. Herrero, cherrero@northdavisprep.org if your student is interested in attending.
