Weekly Memo

The weekly memo is posted every Thursday before 2pm and is the main form of communication between the school and home. It is the responsibility of the parent to read the weekly memo each week, stay abreast of upcoming events, and return permission slips, etc by the due date. The Weekly Memo contains information and reminders for the following week, announcements and up-coming events. It also contains attachments including such things as permission slips and after-school program registration. Simply click on the highlighted words to view and print the attachments. For easy reference, the memo is organized into categories. The first items to appear are relevant to all North Star families, followed by separate sections with additional information for Elementary and Casa & Kindergarten.

Due to the organic nature of North Star’s student centred program, there may be some spontaneous outings or presentations with shorter notice. Information regarding these events will be emailed directly to parents.
