APPLY FOR POET VP!
Would you like to have a positive impact at NDPA? Consider being Vice President for our 2022-2023 POET Board. The duties of VP are: "The Vice President shall be a member of the POET board, and in the absence of the President, shall perform the duties of the President. The Vice President shall be an aide to the President and perform such duties as are assigned by the President or the POET Board. After serving one (1) term as Vice President, the Vice President shall automatically assume the office of the President the following year." In regards to "duties as assigned," currently the VP has been overseeing the Book Fairs, LEO nights, Barnes & Noble Day, the elementary marquee, and participating in the POET/Admin meetings. It is also beneficial for the VP to attend the POET sponsored events (Fall Fiesta/Fun Run, FUNdraising Fiesta Auction, Field Day, etc.)

From Jennie Burbidge, current POET President: "I have loved working with POET and I can confidently say that the person who is VP will have a great opportunity working with the President and Board this upcoming year. It has been a great way to get involved in the school and know how we can make positive changes and contributions for our teachers and kids! POET truly is a great force for good at NDPA and it has been a pleasure to work with the dedicated individuals of the POET Board! Please let me know if you are interested by replying to jennieburb.ndpa@gmail.com "

POET BOARD APPLICATIONS – We need YOU to be “PART OF EVERYTHING” (POET)!!! POET is now recruiting for the 2022-2023 Board. POET’s purpose is to be the “organizers, fundraisers, facilitators, volunteers, and enthusiastic cheering section at the programs and events that make NDPA unique and strong.”

Available positions vary from 20 hours a month to 5 hours a month; hours vary depending on the position and month of the year. Please submit your application to the POET box by March 31st, 2022 at 9:00 AM.

POET Fundraising Fiesta
Friday, April 22, 2022

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 fundraising.ndpa@gmail.com if you have questions.
