"ADOPT A TEACHER / WISH LIST"
This year we are excited to be inviting again 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. Please be aware the lists can not be copied and sent home and you are not able to contact the office and ask the administrative staff to look at a list for you.
If you are looking for ideas of what to buy a teacher for their homeroom or themselves, it is a great place to start.
