Dr. Suess Week

This week we celebrated the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss on Seuss Day, also known as Read Across America Day! Every year on March 2nd, we honor the birthday of the beloved children's author by immersing ourselves in his enchanting stories and imaginative characters. From the mischievous Cat in the Hat to the wise Lorax, Dr. Seuss's creations have captivated readers of all ages for generations. Seuss Day is not only a time to delight in his timeless tales but also an opportunity to promote the joy of reading and creativity among our students. Here are some pictures of our staff as they embarked on a day filled with Seussian activities, colorful costumes, and a celebration of the power of imagination!

CEU Presents in Spain

We are thrilled to announce that our CEU students had the incredible opportunity to showcase their projects in Spain! This cross-cultural experience not only broadened their horizons but also fostered valuable connections with peers on the other side of world. We are immensely proud of our CEU students'!

Mock Trial

Our Fall Mock Trial Elective students won five ballots and had a successful season that wrapped up on Tuesday! We are proud of them for deciding to compete and for their dedication. Mock Trial will be available again as a class next year.


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.

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.

How We are Meeting Our SCIP Goals Part 3 

Next Month: Using Data to Course Correct 

As we continue to implement our five year goals, there are always new improvements that come as a natural result of wanting to be our best. In the Jr. High EHall Pass was implemented by the Jr. High staff along with daily period checks for uniform compliance. Recently the whole school received training on Emergent 3, a security app to increase the safety of all students and staff at NDPA. 

As the year starts to wind down and the new elementary math curriculum is almost behind us, it’s time to start ramping up for our new LA curriculum implementation for the 24-25 school year. Jr. High teachers will begin the revision process of their LA curricula next month.

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. 

Games Club is for 6th-9th graders only and will run from 1:20 pm - 3:30 pm. Please plan to be here by 3:30 pm to pick up your student(s). 

A club fee of $10 will need to be turned in to the Jr. High front office before the student’s first session or on September 1st. Any session after that they will be informed that they still owe the club fee and will need to bring that to the office before they will be allowed to attend. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Mr. Cameron at CPingree@northdavisprep.org
