End of Year letter from Reed

Graduation was a big success; Jean Poulsen was a wonderful guest speaker and it was fun to hear from the students on their big day.   The support of our community coming together to celebrate and socialize was wonderful. Thank you to all that were able to share in the celebration.  Parents, and graduates…. Congratulations!

Graduates, please remember to come get your diploma.  And remember to send in a pennant of your college or program if our office does not already have one hanging. (send one if you are not sure).

Summer is quickly approaching, End-Of-The-Year meetings are in full swing.  Advisors are sharing copies of our draft (perhaps final) class schedule.  The schedule will soon be posted.

The Steller Office will closed May 30th and reopen July 22nd.  I will be in and out of the building May 31th – June 12th and will be checking messages and my email.

Please save the date for the Fall, Back to School, Parent Group Bar B Que, August 15, 6pm.  Don’t miss it J

New to Steller students will be given an opportunity on August 13 or 14 to come to Steller with Jason and Becky for orientation with activities.

We had a fantastic year with amazing students and teachers.  We saw growth in responsible freedom, academic risk and a great deal of success.  The school was calm with vibrate energy.  Student behavior was positive and inviting. I was impressed with Passages projects, projects, art work, as well as the engagement observed in classes throughout the year.  Steller is a wonderful community.   Truly a Blue Ribbon Year!

I hope you all have a safe and exciting summer break.    Read something, and be active.

Reed

Parent Group needs a Treasurer!

Dabble with numbers and looking for a way to volunteer next year? Steller Parent Group needs a treasurer starting Fall of 2019. This is an easy roll to fill and is very flexible with your schedule. All accounting is done with Quickbooks Online and is easy to access on whatever computer you have available. Except for checks and reports, the entire job is paperless. This role encourages regular attendance to the monthly meetings (2nd Tuesday of each month), generating financial reports, and printing checks. The role is also important during the yearly auction, where you will assist in setting up the payment system. Previous experience is not required but may be helpful to understand lite accounting as well as understand quickbooks. Help is available now and through the summer, so you won’t be left in the dark. Got a question or possibly interested? The Parent Group really needs you. Reach out to the current treasurer Kevin Hedin kevin@kevinhedin.com
