NDPA LIONS R.O.A.R.! Our students have Respect, Ownership, Achievement, and Responsibility. NDPA elementary teachers are teaching all students what ROAR looks like and sounds like so each student can develop these important traits. We are teaching these behaviors throughout the school. We will reinforce and recognize students who show respect, ownership, achievement, and responsibility by handing out tickets to students using ROAR behaviors. If you have a student bring home a ROAR ticket, please ask them what they did to earn it and encourage ROAR behaviors. We will have weekly and monthly drawings for ROAR rewards, as well as a ROAR class of the month. We appreciate your parent support in teaching our lions how to ROAR!
SCHOOL LUNCH PAYMENTS – At this time of year, we have quite an influx of school lunch payments. Please be patient while we process your online and in-school payments, it could take up to 3 days to appear in your student’s account, we will still feed your student in the meantime!
