    From Fun Run Chair, Leslie Gunn:

    We still need help!  

    • Monday, Oct. 14- 7:00-10:00: Help at the pep-rally to greet students with high fives and clapping.
    • Prize patrol - This will take an hour or two to read the daily prize printout, collect the prizes from the teachers’ lounge and deliver to the classrooms. These volunteers will be spunky and excited as they deliver the prizes.  A minimum of one volunteer, but two would be nice.  We have one guaranteed for Oct. 15, 16, 22 & 23.
    • After school, Thursday, Oct 24 we will need help measuring the track and putting flags down.  
    • 6:30 am, Friday, Oct 25- set up the cones on the track, set up sound system.
    • Volunteers to count laps, cheer, build excitement for each of the three run times

    Please let me know where I can plug you in.  And please forward to friends who may be interested/available.

    Thank you,

    Leslie Gunn

    Did you know that North Star has a new activity this year to promote health and fitness? The North Star Wolf Fun Run will take place October 25th during the school day giving every student a chance to walk, skip, dance, ride or run for an extra 30 minutes. Community members encourage student participation by making a financial pledge based on the number of laps a student finishes, and all funds raised benefit our PTA and the vital programs we support. 


    Volunteers are needed to help with:

    -Communication Leader- getting the word out through different channels and make sure Booster resources make it home on time.

    -Decoration Leader- decorate the school in preparation for the Event.  Use Booster’s poster-pack and their creative ways to decorate the school for this year’s theme:  Mind Spark Wild West (there is a pinterest page for ideas).

    -Logistics Coordinator- gather pre-program details, organize inventory, print daily reports, and help organize various things. 

    -Team Day Leaders- AKA: Prize Patrol, people who will be involved in the experience, and making each day before the run.

    -Event Day Leaders- coordinate the Event Day-making sure each volunteer is in their place and knows their role , that the day is going according to schedule.

    -Collection Leader- coordinate the collection process of any cash or checks that might come in.  

    Can you help fill one of these vital roles? Contact Leslie Gunn, Fun Run Committee Chair.
