JR. HIGH HALLOWEEN DANCE – Junior high kiddos, are you ready to get your Monster Mash on? The junior high student government will be hosting a dance on Friday, October 28, from 1:30-3:00 PM. Feel free to wear a costume! No masks, please– it’s a school safety rule (but if you want to throw it on just for the costume contest, I’m sure that would be fine). See you there in your spooky wear! Questions or comments can be emailed to the student government adviser–

TURN IN YOUR BOX TOPS – It’s time to round up and turn in those Box Tops! The fall deadline for submitting Box Tops is coming up at the end of the month. Don’t hold onto them, many expire in October or November. You can submit your Box Tops at the POET desk of either building. Every Box Top earns money for NDPA–thank you for your participation!

NDPA SCIENCE FAIR 2017 – Click this link to see the Science Fair Packet for NDPA’s annual Science Fair:! Please make note, I have greatly reduced the information in this packet and hopefully made it more user friendly. Also a few things have changed from last year:

  • The science fair date is now the last Wednesday in January, January 25, 2017.
  • Also please note that set up will be on the same day as science fair so your students will bring their boards to the junior high gym on the same day as the fair.
  • Registration forms are now due in December before the break.


AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES CODE OF CONDUCT: Registration for After-School Activities is voluntary and implies agreement that your student(s) will abide by the NDPA core values.

Additionally, it is agreed that all students will be picked up promptly at 4:00 PM.
