Hi families our next picture retake will be Wednesday, November 8th.

APRENDIENDO A RESPIRAR @ NORTH DAVIS PREP!
Learning High Scores and a Few Recommendations
Under our “Learning Capacity” domain we scored as high as we could in the following areas: Learners have equitable opportunities to develop skills and achieve the content; Instruction is monitored and adjusted to meet individual learners’ needs; NDPA implements processes to identify and address the specialized needs of learners. An area of improvement that we were already working toward and which Cognia (company that audits us) agreed we should move in this direction was a “formalized” process to ensure that curriculum is aligned to standards and best practices. Any students in K-6 grades will know that we have adopted a new math curriculum, which is directly in-line with achieving this goal. We have a specific 5 year goal to ensure we grow and excel in this area.
“NDPA will implement a cohesive curriculum selection and review process for all academic areas including a rubric to measure alignment to standards and best practices”.
In February’s SCIP Corner, we’ll share will you our formalized curriculum selection and review processes.

Games Club will run until May 17th. It will be every Friday when school is in session, except on the Fridays that have a school dance scheduled the same day.
Games Club is for 6th-9th graders only and will run from 1:20 pm - 3:30 pm. Please plan to be here by 3:30 pm to pick up your student(s).
A club fee of $10 will need to be turned in to the Jr. High front office before the student’s first session or on September 1st. Any session after that they will be informed that they still owe the club fee and will need to bring that to the office before they will be allowed to attend.
