Join the PTA!
Please consider joining the PTA. Single memberships are $10 and two parent/guardian memberships are $15. 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 CheddarUp page. 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 to volunteer or look for the sign up genius link for various events throughout the year.
Please support the PTA while shopping on Amazon by using Amazon Smile. Shopping through Amazon Smile is the same as shopping via Amazon but with the added bonus 0.5% of the purchase price being donated to the PTA.
Also please don't forget to send into school your Box Tops and Zingos receipts too.
