Announcements

Field Day Volunteers
Thank you so much for giving so freely of your time to make this the best Field Day yet!!  We can’t thank you enough as we absolutely can not have Field Day without all the volunteers.  It is an event that requires a lot of volunteers so it is completely run by YOU!!!  Special thanks to everyone who either signed up or just showed up, the NS Staff, Custodians and Field Day Chairs.  We are blessed and thankful for each and every person who participated.

Library Volunteers May-June
We REALLY need your help in the library. Please sign up once a week, once a month or whenever you have free time. Your responsibilities will be shelving books, organizing the shelves, checking in/out books, and helping children find their books.  Times can be flexible and North Star is appreciative of any time you can give to the library.
