  • Veterans Day at North Star

    Thank you for those who were able to join us for a wonderful Veterans Day assembly honoring our past and present Veterans! Our music teacher Ms. Pederson-Smith taught our students both the Star-Spangled Banner and Semper Paratus to honor our Veteran guests. It was very moving and our students made us so proud. Their hard work memorizing the songs showed, and they sounded amazing!
