Polaris’ Student Council sold “Winter Wishes” in the month of December to raise money for children in Africa to go to school. Thanks to the amazing support from the Polaris community, the kids surpassed their expectations. They had hoped to send five children to school, but were beyond surprised at the final outcome. The kids were able to raise $910.52, enough to send 15 kids to school in Africa! This is astounding and it all happened because the kids put their mind to a cause and found a way to change lives. Thanks to all who bought candy canes, you truly helped change the life of a child!
The Polaris @ Ebert Yearbook Committee is busy compiling our 2011/2012 yearbook. This year’s color edition will cost $16 per copy.
We will also continue to set aside pages in the yearbook for parents to purchase messages/dedications to offer kids congratulations on a year well spent or words of encouragement for their endeavors into the next grade. We use this as an opportunity to offset the cost of the yearbook and provide financial assistance to families in need. Dedication space will be offered on a “first come first serve” basis. Pricing for the dedications is as follows:
• $5 for a single line dedication (text only, limit 120 characters)
• $25 for a 2″ x 3″ dedication (text and artwork/photo)
• $40 for a 4″ x 3″ dedication (text with artwork/photo).
Ordering information will be sent home in your child’s Thursday folder in the New Year. Yearbook and dedication orders will be due in early March.

Principal Johnson is excited to celebrate the children’s hard work and success during the Jogathon with a school-wide dance party. The classes will be rotating through the gym tomorrow morning (Friday, Jan 13) and will enjoy snacks, dancing and music as spun by our very own Danny Mey.
As always, parents, thank you for your support of time and money to make the Jogathon such a success. The total raised this year was $9,365, which is very good given that the Polaris Annual Fund kickoff party was happening simultaneously. The children took great pride in their efforts and definitely deserve to be celebrated! Thank you.
