April 27, 2018: North Star Digest Edition XIV 
As this is our fourteenth edition of the digest, we thought it appropriate to let readers know that most of our older issues of the digest will be located on the menu bar to the left. Thank you true-believers!



General School Information:  
 Over the weekend, two of our North Star students, Mia (7th grade) and Finn (Kindergarten) competed in a 24 hour Run.Walk.Ruck event in support of their dad's military event, the TACP Association's 24 Hour run. 


This event is held every year for 24 hours to raise money to support the TACP community, fallen members and their families. Mr. Brown, the PE teacher at North Star is actually a TACP as well. 

The event was held this weekend in the Eagle Foothills Saturday at Noon until Sunday at noon
In that timeframe: 
Finn ran 2 miles

Mia rucked with a weighted backpack a total of 15.6 miles which made her win the under 18 years old most rucked miles category.

Mark your calendar for North Star's 15 Year Anniversary Event! 

The evening will have a special emphasis on music and art, along with celebrating the success of our amazing school community over the past 15 years. We have been fortunate enough to receive a grant from the City of Eagle Arts Commission to sponsor this fun evening and help honor North Star's great accomplishments.

This is a FREE event and is open to the public. ALL are welcome to attend, especially past and present North Star families. Please help us spread the word to any alumni families you know! Be sure to follow North Star on Facebook and check out the Facebook event where you can RSVP and share fun photos. Hope to see you there!





Please join us to celebrate 15 years of education and the wonders of Music and Art

The Eagle Fire Department will also be on hand to help fill our water pools and spray down our participants. We're looking forward to their involvement!

North Star Shout-Out:   
 A huge shout out to North Star's Director of Development, Joanna O'Donnell!

Such a challenging task to deliver dreams,
Yet this is her endeavor.
Working long hours, with volunteers, and asking for means...
All of these are her.
She does her best.
Every day.
She has helped North Star with success.
In many ways.
We see and appreciate all that you do,
Much of what we have, is in large part, because of you.
Many things seem impossible, until they are done.
Hard work is often not included or mixed with fun.
Please keep up your excellence,
Because you are making a difference.


 Wanted: any request can be placed here, just email northstardigest@northstarcharter.org and we will place your ad.


Miscellaneous:  Sometimes our puns are cheesy, yet they are still pretty gouda...




Lost and Found:  Please check the Elementary or Secondary office if you have lost anything recently.
