Dads, bring your student(s) to school and join us in the library before school (school starts at 8:00)

We are Raising Money for a Water Buffalo!

Voting is complete, our students have decided! North Star’s holiday service project is to buy a water buffalo!

  • We’ll have a spare change drive to try to raise $250.
  • Water buffalos provide nutritious milk and cheese for hungry families.
  • They also make it possible for farmers to cultivate more land.
  • They are important in parts of South America, Southeast Asia, and India.
  • We’ll buy our water buffalo from the Heifer Project.


PTA Meeting

December 11th From 5:30-7:00 PM

Please join us in the library. It’s a great group of people, and you’ll be a voice that helps support our school!

Childcare provided. Free pizza and salad.

Skate with Santa

Sunday, December 15th from 3:30-5:00 PM

There will be pizza for purchase and free cookies, hot cocoa, and skating with Santa at the Baranof Ice Rink. Cookie donations welcome!


Angel Tree

This week, look for the Angel Tree in the entryway - our tradition of supporting North Star families who may be experiencing difficult times during the holiday season. There will be paper ornaments on the tree, each of which shares an item needed by a child in the family.
More details coming soon!
