This is a walking field trip. The students' dress code is a spirit shirt with shorts (jean or uniform) with tennis shoes. The students will have volunteers to escort and monitor them there and back. They will be using the walking trail for safety.

All students will have either school or home lunch at Classic at their allotted times and we will return to the school for 3 PM pickup. The event includes skating (skates included), bounce houses, and jungle gym for all. It does not include the arcade, gravity ride, or laser tag. Jr high May bring personal rollerblades or rent rollerblades and scooters for $3. Elementary will not be bringing personal items for field day but can rent for $3.

Each class needs volunteers to help with the students so please check with your class captain to see volunteer availability. Thanks for everyone’s help to make this a great and fun event for the students. If you have any questions please email Allie Longoria at amlongoria87@gmail.com.

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 "
