PARENT/STUDENT SCHOOL HANDBOOK
The 2015/2016 school handbook is available on line, and for returning families a hard copy will not be sent home.
Please take time to read the handbook as there are some new changes this year.
"ADOPT A TEACHER / WISH LIST"
This year we are excited to be inviting all North Star staff members to complete an "Adopt a teacher / wish list" form which once completed will be held a binder in the main office. The plan being if you are looking for ideas of what to buy a teacher for their homeroom or themselves, it is a great place to start.
