Our new student government class will be running the event. If you prefer your student to wear a mask or not attend, please establish that with them before the event (and maybe enlist the support of their adviser, as desired).

ROAR WEEK!!

The students will get to have different activities during their lunch recesses! Yay!

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 yet 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

NDPA GAMES CLUB!! & 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.

Math tutoring available for all Jr. High students. This will be from 3:15pm to 4:00pm on Mondays through 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.
