All

  1. PRO D DAY Reminder that tomorrow Fri, Feb 2nd is a Pro D Day. School will not be in session.
  2. FACILITY PLANNING COMMITTEE Do you have commercial real estate or facilities planning experience? North Star’s Board of Directors is looking for someone to lead or be a member of the Facility Planning Committee. Please contact Jeanne if you are interested.
  3. PARENT DISCOVERY Inspiring the Imagination through the 5 Great Lessons. A key component of the Elementary Montessori Curriculum is to encourage learning through the imagination. Please join North Star Elementary teachers from 6:30-8:00pm on Tues, Feb 6th for an inspiring evening where our teachers will give you an overview of the Great Lessons and how they open the doors to all subject areas. Learn how these stories encourage a wide array of follow up work and how your child can explore his own interests with this deeper investigation. If you are currently in the Elementary program or considering it for the future this evening is not to be missed! Childcare will be available for North Star Casa & Elementary students. Sign-up for both attendance and childcare is posted on the office bulletin board.

  6. SILENT AUCTION ITEMS Do you have a ski cabin or cottage on the lake? Would you like to donate a day of fun on your family boat or your skilled service as a silent auction item? We are still soliciting donation items from local businesses but would also like to encourage families to think about ways to personally contribute to the silent auction at our Annual Fundraiser.
