SAVE THE DATE - POET Fundraising Fiesta
Friday, April 22, 2022
5:30 PM
Davis Conference Center in Layton

The funds raised through POET are used to improve the school and purchase items that benefit our kids. Some things we have helped purchase in the past include the school security system, playground equipment, the electronic marquee, Spain scholarships, additional chairs for the auditorium... that’s just a sampling of the many things your donations are used for! We don’t send our kids home to sell items this is our main, once-a-year fundraiser.

We're currently collecting donations from local businesses! Please drop off donations at the school with your contact information and let them know it’s for the POET fundraiser. We will check with the office regularly and pick up all donations. Contact if you have questions.

LAST WEEK TO UPLOAD YEARBOOK PHOTOS! - Do you have photos of NDPA events? Go to the link below to share your photos with the yearbook committee! Please upload your submissions by Tuesday, March 8.
