Black History Month is a time for North Star Scholars to creatively share their understanding of the sacrifices, break-thoroughs and achievements of black Americans. Whether it is by decorating their classroom doors, writing poems of gratitude, or performing tributes to honor black American pioneers, North Star values the struggle and the progress. We know that the opportunity to affect change in this world, is not limited to a moment, or a single month, but instead it is a movement. Each day we come to school ready to learn, and give our best, is another day we work to continue the legacy of a rich heritage.
North Star scholars are 100 days smarter, and that’s something to celebrate! We have reached the midpoint of our school year, and the growth is evident. With a strong focus on counting, and learning about the number 100, our elementary scholars enjoyed the day sporting fun glasses, crowns, receiving pencils and even cupcakes. At North Star, it is cool to be smart, and we know that with hard work, smart is something that you become. Since August, we’ve been working hard and the results are clear – we are squarely on the road to college.
This is the last week to submit your application for the 2015-16 school year. Don’t miss the opportunity to apply, and ensure that your child has a chance for a life-changing education.
