TRAFFIC INFO

Two important things to note for the Elementary Building:
1. When you are dropping off your student or picking your student up, PLEASE DO NOT turn left into the parking lot. This backs up the traffic and causes problems. Please remember to only turn right into the parking lot.
2. Please do not use the parking spaces during drop-off and pick-up times to walk your child to the school or walk your child to your car. This causes a backlog and is unsafe for you and your child. Please stay in your car and we will bring your child to you when you are close to the front of the building. Thank you!

VOLUNTEER HOURS TRACKING
Because of new legislation that was passed recently, we've had to change the way that volunteer hours are tracked and used. We will only be tracking volunteer opportunities that go through the SignupGenius site/app, and will not be using the Help Counter app going forward. Unfortunately we currently do not have a way to track hours outside of SignupGenius for volunteer opportunities such as helping teachers. Volunteer hours will be recorded as a total number per family and not designated to individuals.

HOODIE ORDERS
Deadline to order hoodies is Monday September 12th! Please fill out the google doc from the link below, and then pay either with Venmo or sending in cash or check and putting it in the POET box in either school. If you have any questions please reach out to Kiley Holt by email kiley.holt@hotmail.com

NEW GUITAR CLASS
Learn to play the guitar in NDPA’s new guitar class! This class is for beginners and will run for one term, but is limited to ten students. There will be a recital at the end of the term. Learn the basics of the guitar, including:
Notes
Chords
Strum patterns
Finger picking
Using a pick
Students should be committed to practicing each lesson daily. Students need to provide the guitar, and NDPA will provide the book. A tuner is recommended but not required.

PICTURE DAY FOR STUDENTS

Picture Day is coming up on September 14th! Students MUST wear approved uniform dress for pictures to be taken.

SOMETHING FUN!! & MATH TUTORING
We are going to be doing a Games Club this year for students 6th-9th grade. The club will be run by Mr. Cameron Pingree with the help of Mr. Gypp and Mr. McLean. We will be holding meetings on Fridays starting Sept 9 from 1:20pm to 4pm. We will be playing table top games, for example: Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering, and other table top board games. Anyone wanting to join can either go to any of the 3 teachers listed above, or go to the school website and print out a permission slip. The permission slip can then be returned to any of those before mentioned teachers. The club is free for anyone wanting to enter.

We will be starting back up with the math tutoring program next week for all Jr. High students. This will be from 3:15pm to 4:00pm on Mondays to Thursdays. As with last year, Mondays will be for 7th grade, Tuesday for 8th, Wednesday for 9th, and Thursday for everyone 7-9. This program will be run by Mr. Cameron Pingree and we will work on any classwork the students need extra help with as well as studying for tests and working to build their knowledge of math in a smaller setting.

WATERFORD UPSTART INFO
Waterford Upstart is an at-home early learning program for Utah children entering kindergarten in 2022 and 2023. Children learn foundational skills in reading, math, and more in as little as 15 minutes a day. Families receive resources to prepare their children for school, including:
Award-winning, adaptive software proven to boost reading outcomes and produce learning gains that last
Independent online activities and one-on-one support from qualified coaches
Ongoing guidance and tools to aid their child’s learning
It’s fully funded by the state of Utah, so the only investment families make is quality time with their kids.
