All Families

  1. REMEMBRANCE DAY is Mon, Nov 11th.  Class is not in session.
  2. CURLING FUNDRAISER Tomorrow Fri, Nov 8th will be the last day to buy tickets for the curling fundraiser.  Our Curling Fundraiser is taking place at the North Shore Winter Club on Sat, Nov 16th from 12:45 to 4:15pm.  A sign-up sheet for teams will be posted in the front lobby on Nov 12th & 13th.  We will also be placing an auction item list in your family pocket so that you can preview all the fabulous donations prior to this event!
  3. OPEN HOUSE Our next Open House is scheduled for Wed, Nov 13th from 4:00-7:00pm.  This is a great opportunity for friends & family to tour the school, have a closer look inside the classrooms and meet our wonderful teachers.  Please help spread the word!
  4. STUDENT ABSENCE Please remember to call North Star before 8:00am if your child is going to be absent.  If she/she is ill, please also provide the symptoms as we are required to track them for Vancouver Coastal Health.  This also applies to After School Care – if your child is scheduled for ASC and will not be attending for any reason, please let us know as early as possible.
  5. PARKING As everyone is aware, parking is an ongoing issue for us.  In an effort to assist in keeping as many spots available as possible, please remember to park your vehicle in a designated space.  Please do not double park or park at the end of the cul-de-sac.  This makes it difficult for other parents to turn around at the end of the street and it creates an unsafe environment for students & parents crossing the street.  Underground parking is also available at the North Shore Winter Club.  Thank you for your co-operation.
  6. PAJAMA DAY Pull out your most comfy PJ’s and fuzzy slippers because next Fri, Nov 15th is Pajama Day!
  7. WEALTHY SCHOOL REVOLUTION (WSR) The next order cut-off date is Wed, Nov 20th to be delivered Thurs, Nov 28th.
