Dear Steller Families,
On behalf of the Steller Parent Group I want to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning Steller families. My name is Kirsten Tschofen and I am the Chair of Steller Parent Group.
The Steller Parent Group is an integral part of the Steller Community. We meet on the second Tuesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in person and on Zoom. Every member of the Steller Community – Staff, Students and Parents/Guardians are automatically part of SPG and welcome to attend, ask questions and share their ideas. We would love to see you at our first meeting on Tuesday, September 14 at 6:00pm. We hope to have both an in person option and Zoom.
Steller Parent Group is one of the three Pillars of our school: Staff – Students – Parents/Guardians. The purpose of the SPG is to enrich the lives of Steller students through the financial support and leadership of active parents and guardians. We strive to promote parent and guardian involvement in school activities. Traditionally we host events during the school year, raise funds to support school initiatives through the Steller Auction, and coordinate volunteers. Through all the uncertainty of the last year the central mission of SPG has remained the same, and I believe it must take on even more importance in the effort to create a strong learning community in light of this last year.
All of this takes the hard work and dedication of our community members and we want to invite you to get involved by taking on a formal position in the board, or simply actively attending our meetings. We are currently recruiting for a Co-Chair, and Treasurer and have a variety of other positions.
Participating in the SPG has many benefits, including the opportunity to make connections with other parents and staff, and the opportunity to effectively make positive change. We all want the very best education and experiences for our children, and when we work together we can make it happen.
If you are interested in learning more about SPG positions please let me know, and as always, we welcome your thoughts and ideas about how Steller Parent Group can serve you.
Chair, Steller Parent Group
