Thank you to parents, students, and front office staff for making our day special on Wednesday.  We enjoyed the treats for breakfast and the Bear Tooth tacos.  All the goodies were appreciated by our staff who met in the staff lounge to celebrate another great year at Steller.  

Next Year’s Barcelona and Paris Travel Intensive Informational Parent Meeting: Tuesday May 7th at 6PM

Parents: Please come find out about the Barcelona and Paris trip that will be happening during May’s Intensive. This is an eleven day trip focused on the art and culture of these two amazing cities. Students will be visiting museums and landmark sites, like the Eiffel Tower. The Intensive is being designed to allow students to participate in the culture, rather than just observe it. Students will take a French cooking class; create art using a form of choice (photography, drawing, painting, writing, etc.); and observe life in each city. Attached is the current flyer for the trip. It is being updated to show that the Versailles and Figueres day trips are included in the price, rather than showing up as optional. This will not change the price of the trip. Registration for the trip is open now, but there is lots of time to make the decision to attend. 
Please come on Tuesday to get your questions answered. If you can not make the meeting, send your questions to Troy at or Leigh Anne at Students of all grades are able to join. 

CSI Camp

Here’s an opportunity for middle and high school students to be enriched in science this summer. The CSI Camp will be held at the State Crime Lab and delivered by law enforcement officials. It’s a hands on learning experience in a genuine crime investigative environment. See flyer and registration forms for both age groups.

Student GoFundMe Page

Hello my name is Ethan King and I am raising money for the Wusi Primary School’s library. This school is located in Taita Hills, Kenya, and right now they are lacking in books for their 800 students.

I am raising money for this schools library as a part of my Passages project. I have been in communication with both the school headmaster and the school’s teachers and they have provided me with several budgets detailing the exact books they would like to purchase with the funds they receive. In Kenya $10 can purchase up to 8 English reader books.

Please visit the GoFundMe page to donate so that the school can buy books for students.
