  5. INVITATIONS & CARDS Just a quick reminder of our policy of distributing invitations and cards in the family pockets rather than the cubbies. This helps to avoid questions and unnecessary hurt feelings when a student does not receive something.
  6. QUESTIONNAIRE A questionnaire was distributed last week to families moving on from North Star next year. We would really appreciate your feedback and ask that you please submit your questionnaire by Monday so that we are able to compile the data for Board review. Thanks so much for your input!
