Star registration

STAR is still accepting registration for the new session of Nova classes starting on Monday, March 23. Here are some great classes that still have space. Register online TODAY!


Math assignments sometimes can be tricky and we may have a hard time helping our kids with their math homework. We have a great opportunity of getting assistance with math. All parents are invited to attend an informational session with Ms. Cram about Common Core math on March 26 from 5-7pm. We'll have a potluck dinner first then meet in the auditorium. More information and a potluck signup will be sent next week.
