Nikiski North Star Elementary

Posted: Wednesday, October 20, 2004

Red Ribbon Week will continue through Friday. The community is encouraged to go to the school and help "build a wall against drugs."

This is spirit week and character counts week.

There is no school Friday.

The entire school is doing a space theme for October and November. The Artist in the Schools project is complete. The public is invited to go to the school and check it out.

Mr. Zinck's third-graders became rocket scientist as the students studied space last week. The students constructed and flew paper rockets, launched Estes model rockets and worked in teams to recover the rockets off the playground. As of Thursday, the students have flown four successful missions.

It's time for the fall carnival. This is the PTA's biggest fund-raiser of the year and a community tradition for the past 35 years. Games, food, prizes, a peewee room, cake walk, trick-or-treat alley and a costume contest are some of the planned activities. Volunteers are needed for this event. For more information, call Michele Robinson or Ann Holloway at 776-5575.

The school will host a Scholastic Book Fair today through Friday and Monday through Oct. 29 to help raise funds for the school library program. The fair will feature books and educational products, including newly released works, award-winning titles, children's classics, interactive software and current bestsellers from more than 150 publishers. It will be open during school and parent-teacher conference hours. Attendees can help build classroom libraries by purchasing books for teachers through the classroom wish list program.
