Dear Steller Families,

On behalf of the Steller Parent Group we want to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning Steller families. 

Steller Parent Group is one of the three pillars of our school: Staff – Students –  Parents/Guardians. The purpose of SPG is to:

  • enrich the lives of Steller students through the leadership of active parents and guardians,
  • promote parent and guardian involvement in school activities and coordinate volunteers, 
  • host community events during the school year, 
  • raise funds to support school initiatives through fundraisers

Monthly Meetings

The Steller Parent Group generally meets 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 members of SPG and welcome to attend, ask questions, and share their ideas.  

Participating in 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. 

We are currently recruiting for Officer and Committee positions.. Complete this form to express your interest in volunteering (no commitment required).

SPG has three ways we communicate with you:

  1. Website/Steller Flash – all pertinent SPG info appears on the SPG website (stellerschool712.org).  You may also SUBSCRIBE to receive updates directly in your email inbox (Flash).
  1. Steller Secondary Parent Group – a closed Facebook Group to promote communication in our community. Feel free to jump in with questions or posts.
  1. Steller Secondary School’s website (asdk12.org/steller) – managed by ASD. Stay informed about Steller and ASD news.

Co-chair needed!

Steller Parent Group is actively recruiting for a co-chair to join Dee Dee Zobian this year and continue into the 2024/2025 school year.

This is an opportunity to learn about the position and what is involved from an experienced leader in a low pressure environment. Responsibilities are shared between co-chairs in a way to suit both volunteers.

We have an exciting year ahead of us with lots of interesting things going on including:

  • welcoming a new co-hort of 6th graders
  • implementing the Academy model of learning alongside ASD
  • 50th Anniversary Celebrations in September 
  • continuing to grow Steller Parent Group to meet the needs of our community

Please consider reaching out to learn more about this exciting opportunity. We are happy to meet with you and tell you more about the commitment (its not as much as you might think), as well as all the benefits of volunteering in our community.
