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.

BASKETBALL PEP ASSEMBLY: It's time for another rally! Boys basketball is in full swing, so we'll be introducing and celebrating them Thursday, November 4, 2:35-3:10 PM. Cheer will be performing and student government will run a high-energy game. Masks are highly recommended. Please chat with your student about mask expectations that morning. Mr. McLean Paul (room 132) will be hosting students (and families) who are not comfortable attending, and those students can head there instead of the assembly, no questions asked.

We will miss our 5th/6th grade friends, but until COVID restrictions loosen a little, we're keeping the group to junior high only to allow a little more space (and a little less breathing on top of each other). We hope to have our building buddies back later this year. If you have a 6th grade basketball player, have them check with their teacher to see if they can attend (teachers have been notified).

VOLUNTEER WINNERS - POET is happy to announce our 3 lucky gift card winners- Nathan Leeman, Cami Harper and Chelsea Lawrence! We are so grateful for the efforts of the many volunteers here at NDPA who help make our school great.

FREE & REDUCED LUNCH - Dear parents, although the school lunch we are now serving is being provided through government funding, many families have applications that have expired or have not applied for free or reduced lunch benefits. A benefit to you when you qualify for the 2021-2022 school year is that it also allows you to take advantage of the carry over for the first 6 weeks of the 2022-2023 year.

Our school may receive added funds to help support our students based on the number of applications approved. If you feel that you qualify for free or reduced lunch, please follow the link in Aspire to the application and fill it out before Oct 28, 2021. As always, if your circumstances change you may apply anytime before the last week of school.
