Heads up, artists of Steller! Yearbook is hosting an awesome new design contest, where your artwork can be used as the cover of next year’s yearbook. If you are a Steller student with a talent for art, take part in this great opportunity. Voting will be done by the yearbook staff, and if your cover is chosen you will receive a FREE copy of next year’s finished yearbook, complete with your winning cover art.  If you are serious about creating original artwork for all of the Steller community to see, please contact Svetlana about further details.

The parent group believes that the most important component at Steller is the student body. High quality students who are committed to the school’s educational philosophy make for an excellent academic environment promoting teacher retention, student recruitment, and overall reputation of excellence.

We are concerned that there is no longer a wait list for Steller and have noted examples of loss of excellent Steller students. We therefore propose a recruitment and retention coordinator who works closely with the principle and staff and who is funded and answers to the parent group.
