The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) was established to facilitate communication and involvement between parents and teachers at North Star Academy. Our goals are three-fold:
- Promote the welfare of the children at home and in school.
- Help parents and teachers work together in the education of the children.
- Make North Star Academy a great place to learn.
