Interested in one of the upcoming intensives, but the class fee is too high?  Steller is offering scholarships, based on financial need that could pay for part or all of the intensive fee.  If you would like to apply for an intensive scholarship please pick up a form from the office.  Scholarship deadline is:  January 18th.

Students, in addition to the Community Involvement high school elective at North Star Elementary during 2nd through 7th periods, there is another opportunity at Tudor Elementary (1666 Cache Dr., 99506).  From 3:30-5 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Tudor is offering a homework lab and fitness club.  They are looking for middle and high school student tutors.  If you are interested in participating or would like further information, please see Deanna.  An elective credit is available for students who are able to commit to the entire program.

Students who would like support with their writing are encouraged to attend writing lab. This semester Danielle is offering it, and students can come at lunch or after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

There is also math lab that is ongoing in Jen’s room at lunch on Mondays and Wednesdays and Natalie’s on Tues and Thurs.

Talent Show auditions are going to be held this Wednesday after school in the MPR.   If you have any questions, talk to Leigh Anne or Deanna.   The Talent show will be on Friday, January 20th and all of you should attend.

Model United Nations meets today in Ken’s room at noon. Be sure to be there for committee assignments.


Steller has officially started the Pennies for Patients fund raising event.  The event will continue for the next two weeks. We will help people who are sick with cancers like Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. All you have to do is collect coins and other donations and put them in your AG classroom collection box. Remember that every penny counts! Our goal is  to raise $500. The classroom that raises the most will earn a pizza party.  That means that if everyone contributes just one dollar one advisory group will have a party.  Once you have made a donation write your name on a Pennies for Patients name pad in the hallway and be one of the “heroes” helping to fight these diseases.

Remember, every penny counts!  Coins can make a difference in the fight to find a cure. The US Mint estimates that there is 13 billion dollars in loose change lying around in American! Check under couch cushions, in the car, in your locker, on the sidewalk and in your family’s junk drawer. Of course, donations of all currencies are also accepted – nickels, quarters, dollars, etc. Thanks for fighting cancer … one penny at a time! Nurse Anne

Ski/Snowboard sign up will be in Jen’s room.
