Support the Outdoor Classroom
Purchase a rock and/or fence picket to support the growth of the Outdoor Classroom. Rocks and fence pickets should be painted and then covered in a clear coating, meant for the outdoors, so your painting is preserved forever. Rocks are $5 and fence pickets are $10. They can be purchased at Back to School Night (9/13/17) or by contacting Kristen Roebke. Rocks and fence pickets should be returned to school when you have completed your painting and protective coating. Let's help make our school beautiful!!​

By joining the PTA, you are supporting the many activities, assemblies, and more that are provided for the students and staff of North Star by the PTA.
