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 "

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM FIELD TRIP PICTURES
7th graders went on a science field trip on Monday, March 14th, to the Natural History Museum of Utah along with their science teacher, Mrs. Straw, and parent chaperones. This highly interactive museum had exhibits/collections in Paleontology, Anthropology, Entomology, Vertebrate Zoology, Minerology, Botany, Malacology, and a special exhibit, "The Nature of Color". While there was a little bit of bus trouble, everyone had a great time exploring and deepening their understanding of the natural world.
