9th Grade Spain Trip

Our ninth-grade Spain adventurers have concluded! They were able to tour the beautiful country, soaking up the sights, sounds, and, of course, the tapas! From exploring ancient Roman ruins to being welcomed by the mayor of Toledo, it was an experience unlike any other! 

After spending one week touring the country our students were able to spend five days in a Spanish classroom, where they learned beside their Spanish peers. We are thrilled that we were able to set up this unforgettable experience for our students.  

We Are Hiring

Fees Due

Dear families: 

 Please remember to check your student’s accounts for any fees due. 

Any students with balances will not be able to get a yearbook at the end of the year. 

Estimadas familias: 

Por favor recuerden chequear balances sin pagar en su cuenta de Aspire. 

Estudiantes con cuentas negativas no van a poder recibir su anuario.

Sewing Help Needed

Do you know how to sew? If so, we need your help! We need several curtains sewed for any upcoming event. If you are able to help us out, please contact Admin for further details.  

¿Sabes coser? Si es así, ¡necesitamos tu ayuda! Necesitamos coser varias cortinas para un evento próximo. Si puede ayudarnos, comuníquese con la administración para obtener más detalles.


Did you know students are significantly more likely to be successful in school when they attend frequently?  When a student misses 10% or more of school, they are considered chronically absent, even if all those absences are excused. Our students seem to still be getting back into the routine of attending school daily since the pandemic.  We need our students in school to offer them the best of our educational value and resources.  Please make an effort to have your students in school as much as possible.  

Host Families Needed

HOST FAMILIES WANTED - Each year, NDPA hosts student teachers from Spain to help them accomplish their educational goals. We are currently looking for host families for school year 2024-2025. 

Host Family basic living arrangements: 

  • The Host Family provides free room, can share bathroom. 
  • Breakfast and dinner during the school week and most meals on the weekends. 
  • NDPA provides lunch during school time. 
  • Transportation to and from the school. 

If you are interested in hosting or want to explore the option, contact Begoña Fortun, bfortun@northdavisprep.org.

Become a Part of POET

Join POET for the 24-25 school year!  POET fills many roles at NDPA.  Next year we are attempting to divide the duties across more individuals.  We NEED your help! Co-Presidents and Co-Vice Presidents will share the responsibilities.  Six At-Large voting members can join the board to support as needed, rather than being in charge of a specific role.

Information on how to make payments in your student’s lunch account. 

Our cafeteria uses the SIP system for online payments. The system does not reflect updated account balances, it is just a portal to make payments. There is a credit/debit card fee for using this service. There is a 0.49¢ fee if you select payment by an e-check which will require your routing number and bank account. The ASPIRE account is the correct account.

In Aspire you will be able to: 

  • See Daily balance. 
  • See meals charged. 
  • See payments on account. 

Check and cash payments will be credited to your account within 1-2 school day after being paid. 

Online payments can take up to 8 School days to show in the account. We recommend using the SIP system when/if your student does not have a negative balance. Due to the waiting period that it takes for the payments to clear and be posted to your account, if you use this method, you will continue to receive automatic messages, and in some cases phone calls until the balance is no longer negative. 

If after 8 School days you do not see your online payment posted to your account, please contact Mrs. Hamblin. chamblin@northdavisprep.org. If after 2 School days you do not see your check or cash payment posted to your account, please contact Mrs. Foxley lfoxley@northdavisprep.org

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.  


Información para realizar pagos en la cuenta de almuerzo de su estudiante. Nuestra Cafetería utiliza el sistema SIP para realizar pagos en línea. No refleja saldos de cuentas actuales, es más bien solo un portal para realizar pagos. Hay un cargo por hacer pagos usando tarjeta de débito/crédito. Y un cargo de 0.49¢ si realiza un pago con cheque electrónico el cual requerirá su número de ruta del banco y cuenta bancaria. 

La cuenta ASPIRE es la cuenta correcta 

En Aspire podrá: 

  • Ver su Saldo diario. 
  • Ver comidas cobradas. 
  • Ver pagos hechos en su cuenta. 

Los pagos con cheque y en efectivo se acreditarán en la cuenta entre 1 y 2 días escolares después de haber sido pagados. 

Los pagos en línea pueden tardar hasta 8 días escolares en aparecer en la cuenta. 

Recomendamos usar el sistema SIP para hacer pagos cuando su estudiante no tiene un balance negativo. Debido al tiempo que se tardan los pagos en publicar a su cuenta, seguirán recibiendo mensajes automáticos y, en algunos casos, llamadas telefónicas hasta que el saldo deje de ser negativo. 

Si después de 8 días escolares no ve su pago, comuníquese con la Sra. Hamblin. chamblin@northdavisprep.org. 

Si después de 2 días escolares no ve su cheque o pago en efectivo, comuníquese con la Sra. Foxley. lfoxley@northdavisprep.org. 

Esta institución es un proveedor de igualdad de oportunidades.

Using Data to Course Correct 

Next Month: This Year’s Progress 

Under the direction of our school leadership team, regular benchmark testing takes place formally three times a year. This testing gives us a look into which students are making growth and those that need change to make sufficient strides toward grade level norms. Our leadership team analyzes the school wide data after each testing window. The team will then use the data analysis, along with other measures such as the parent/teacher/student surveys, and make informed decisions about student services, curriculum, teacher training, and where our school resources are needed most. Improvement is a daily commitment! 

* School Continuous Improvement Plan 

Games Club

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.
