Join the PTA!
Please consider joining the PTA. Single memberships are $10 and two parent/guardian memberships are $15. Additional membership levels are $25 and $50. By joining the PTA, some of your money goes to the many activities, assemblies, etc that are provided for the kids of North Star by the PTA. Complete the membership form or you can pay online on the North Star PTA Cheddar Up. Joining doesn't mean you have to volunteer. It helps the kids, but if you would like to volunteer, there will be many opportunities throughout the year. Please contact Kristen Dassel
