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 firstname.lastname@example.org
A big Thank You to all the Students, Staff and Parents! We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Steller Auction was a very successful event! Everyone did a great job participating in Steller’s largest fundraiser of the year. All money raised goes to fund programs such as Souper Steller, Travel Scholarships, Exchange programs, Intensive fees, Passage projects, Student and Teacher projects, and much more. The evening was filled with lots of activities including a silent auction, a live auction, and international catered food and beverages.
Bidder’s had a wide selection of items generously donated from our community. Items included a weekend retreat getaway, framed art, local restaurant gift cards, spa packages, house-hold decor, and a U.S. American Flag flown over U.S. Capital. Also, the Advisory Groups offered outstanding experience gift baskets too!
The event included a professional Auctioneer, Dan Newman, from Alaska Premiere Auctions. Live Auction packages included trips to Las Vegas, and Mexico and local weekend retreats.
Also noteworthy, we streamlined our check-in and check-out process this year. Bidders got checked in quickly thanks to bidders pre-registering and pre-swiping their credit cards. And checkout was a breeze with as many as 5 check-out lanes available instead of just one.
The auction netted $10,533, an increase of $3248 over last year. That’s great! However, we are still shy of reaching our goal of $15,000, but you can still help us get there. We are still accepting donations, and would encourage you to donate to help us reach our funding goal.
Donate to keep our programs running all year: DONATE HERE All cash donations are tax deductible. Steller Parent Group is recognized as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit.
Thanks to all our volunteers, parents, students and teachers who helped make this years auction a success!

Each year the Steller Parent Group maintains a directory of parents, students, and Steller staff to help aid in communication, event coordination, and planning of Steller activities. This is an opt-in directory, and we highly encourage you to join. Returning parents will only need to confirm their information once at the beginning of each school year, saving time from re-entry. Follow the link below to join or confirm your information for this year. Your information is safe with us, and is only used for Steller related purposes. Tip: when it asks for your students’ teacher or homeroom, choose their advisor. Thank you!
If you have questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. The directory volunteers this year are Juliana Shields and Kevin Hedin.

The start of the new school year is quickly approaching and to help you be ready for class registration day we are reposting the schedule and course descriptions for 1st Semester. There are no changes to the schedule or courses just a change in teachers. Steller will have two new teachers on staff this year. Louisa Williams, who just moved to Anchorage yesterday from Texas, will be our new Spanish II teacher. Jazerae Howell, who is also coming to us from the Lower 48, is our new orchestra teacher. We would like to extend a hearty Steller welcome to our new teachers and let them know how grateful we are to have them join our Steller family!
