Part Of EveryThing

What is POET?

POET is the parent organization at NDPA. Like a PTA or PTO, our POET helps organize special activities for our school and advocate for our students.

To us, POET stands for “Part Of Every Thing.” All parents are automatically members, and involved in all aspects of student life at NDPA. There are zero membership dues; your contribution as a volunteer makes you part of POET.

To find out how to become a member of the POET Board, contact the POET President.

How do I get involved?

By volunteering!

If you would like to volunteer, please contact the POET Board or your students’ teacher to find out where the need is. Or if there is a specific activity you would like to volunteer for, contact the POET Board Chair for that activity to sign up.

  • If you would like to volunteer in the classroom, ask your class captain about opportunities; your homeroom teacher can give you the Class Captain's information.
  • Keep an eye on Que Pasa and Facebook for upcoming volunteer opportunities!
  • Contact the volunteer coordinator for help and information: Volunteer Coordinator.

Here’s a sampling of the events POET sponsors (and opportunities to volunteer):

  • After School Activities (all year long) – There are many opportunities to get involved in after-school activities, you can just come to the school and hang out for a bit while your student has fun doing art, participating in choir, learning Zumba or sports!
  • Fall Fiesta (Fall) – The Fall Celebrations is a fun event for the whole family. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we have our annual Fall Fiesta.  All NDPA families and the community are invited to attend for: live entertainment, games, food trucks and vendors!
  • Field Day (May) – Students love this all day event and lots of volunteers are needed to make it a super fun day for them! 

Everyone is a member.
