Each student interested in the immersion program must submit a separate application. The first round of applicants will be notified by email on May 22, 2017. Ongoing acceptance will be as openings in Immersion become available.

LEO NIGHT @ CHICK-FIL-A – LEO NIGHT HAS CHANGED! The date will now be WEDNESDAY, May 3, 2017, at Chick-Fil-A in Layton, on Antelope Drive. Stop by Chick-Fil-A in Layton between 7:00-9:00 AM and then that evening from 5:30-7:30 PM. Be sure to let them know that you are there for NDPA. We will have some special guests that night…the fabulous NDPA administrative team will help serve your meals! You don’t want to miss out on this awesome opportunity to see Mr. Robinson, Mr. Fernandez, and Mrs. Billings working the counter at Chick-Fil-A. It’s going to be so cool!

Showtimes are Thursday, May 4 & Friday, May 5 at 7:00 PM and Saturday, May 6 at 2:00 PM & 7:00 PM.


  • May 5- Dollar Dress Day: You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. As regularly scheduled, this will be a dollar dress day. Bring a dollar, wear anything within the approved dollar dress standards. If you’ve already paid for the year, you’re set.
  • May 12- Celebrity Day: Come dressed as your favorite celebrity! Carry a stuffed animal in a handbag, do your hair in outrageous styles, bust our your best animal prints– the possibilities are endless. Again, please make sure that students are fully covered, even if you have to put a shirt or leggings underneath an outfit.
  • May 19- Single Color Day: Every year we have a color day, but we usually pick the color. This year, YOU pick the color. Do you own a lot of purple? Wear it all today! Are you a fan of chartreuse? Today’s your day to shine (literally). Your goal is simply to wear as much of one color as you can.

ALL LIBRARY BOOKS DUE BY MAY 5 – The final date for all library materials to be returned is Friday, May 5, 2017. The following week, both offices will send billing statements to parents whose students have not returned items. Please return all library materials on time!
