The Northstar Advisory Committee (NAC) is comprised of the parents of students attending Northstar Middle School and has representatives from the school's staff, administration, and students. The purpose of the NAC is to provide a mechanism for parents and students to assist the staff regarding decisions facing Northstar, and provide a forum where parents and students can express their viewpoints on issues regarding the school. Although the staff and administration are the sole controllers of curriculum content, the NAC plays a valuable role in sharing ideas and providing feedback.
The NAC makes decisions about student activities, fundraising, conference weeks, parties, dances, and end of the school year events, and coordinates the resources and funding to make these things happen. The NAC is also responsible for coordinating conference week activities, health screening, disaster planning, community service opportunities, field trips, and the ski and snowboard program.
This is a large task and we need your partnership. Just as Northstar students are expected to perform 30 hours of service to the community each year, Northstar parents are expected to perform 30 hours of service per family to the school. Strong parental support and involvement in NAC activities contributes greatly to the success of the school and helps to make a positive educational experience for the students.
The NAC holds monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month (except December) during the school year. We look forward to seeing you there and listening to your input.
