  4. LOST AND FOUND The lost and found bin will be sorted on Fri, May 9th and any items not claimed will be donated to charity.  Please ensure that you take a moment to look through the lost and found bin before this time.
  5. IMPORTANT REMINDERS
    1. Parking for parents who drop off at 8:15am to please leave as quickly as possible after drop off so that parking is available for parents arriving for the 8:30am drop off.  This is part of the reason for our staggered start times.  If you plan to stay longer in the morning please park further down the street so that spaces directly beside the school are available for the next group of parents.  Please do not double park or park at the end of the cul-du-sac as this makes it difficult for others to turn around at the end of the street.
    2. Reporting Illness we are required by Vancouver Coastal Health to track all student illness, including symptoms.  If your child is home ill please remember to call and advise us of the absence as well as the symptoms.  Please provide us with this information via telephone (not email) so that all admin staff are able to access this information.
    3. Outside Patio licensing requires our outside patio be cleared immediately following both morning and afternoon dismissals.  We encourage you to use the local park if you wish to play after class.  Thank you everyone for your co-operation on all of the above!
  6. BCCH CHILDRUN As is tradition at North Star, we have entered a team in the annual BC Children’s Hospital Foundation ChildRun taking place on Sun, June 1.  Throughout the years, this event has brought an increasing number of our families together in support of childhood cancer research and treatment in our province.  Come and join us this year to make it an even more successful fundraiser!  Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome to register for either the 5K run or the 1K Fun Run.  In order to register for the school team, please go to our team website:  https://secure.bcchf.ca/SuperheroPages/team.cfm?Event=Childrun&Team=8204.
