Grade 7 Zoom Party April 23

The first Grade 7 Social Club Zoom Party was a great success! Thank you to everyone who joined – I hope you had a good time. We are going to host a second party on Friday, April 23 at 3pm.  We would love to get as many grade 7 students as possible and have even more fun.

The goal of the Social Club is to provide an opportunity for grade seven students to get to know each other and have some fun. Everyone in grade seven is invited to participate, but it is not mandatory.

How it works:

    1. We will post a new Creative Challenge and a Discussion Prompt every Monday on a platform called Padlet.
    2. You can post as much as you want, and respond to your friends, whenever you want. Padlet lets you post comments, photos, video and even links. The Challenges and Prompts are meant to be a bit silly, so get creative and have fun!
    3. We will also host Live Zoom sessions where we will play some games, have some breakout rooms, and get to know each other.

Participating is easy:

  1. Complete the Registration Form Here (both student and guardian).
  2. When you receive an email from Padlet scroll down and click on “Take Me to Padlet”. You don’t have to create an account! 
  3. Pick up a Steller Jay Mascot at the school office. We will use our Mascots in many of our Creative Challenges so please take care of it.  If you can’t pick up your Mascot please contact me at the email below to make arrangements.
  1.  
  • Students can join any time.
  • Steller Parent Group will be moderating posts. 
  • If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Warm regards,

Join the Steller Reflection Committee Monday, April 19.

Thank you to everyone who joined us Monday night for the Steller Reflection Committee Discussion. One thing that came through very clearly is how much we love our school and are willing to work to help it become even better. 

On Monday, April 19 from 6:30 to 7:30 we will meet again next week to talk about:

  •  What we can do to help “onboard” new students into the Steller way, and help students and their families feel part of the community (with a particular focus on grade 7, 8 and 9).

  • Identify topics of interest we want to take up in the fall.

If you have ideas and questions you would like our community to consider taking up next year to help Steller grow and  become even better, or you just want to be part of the discussion, join us on Monday and help us brainstorm. Students and their families from all grades, and who are new, or have been here forever, are encouraged to join.

Time: Monday, April 19, 6:30 pm

Principal Candidate Webinar – Save the Date!

As you know, after many years of service our principal Reed will be retiring at the end of this school year.  ASD is currently in the process of hiring someone to join our school. Because of the unique nature of Steller, students and parents are being given a voice in this process.

The final principal candidates will answer the same six questions during a candidate webinar on Monday, April 26 from 6 to 7pm. All community members are invited to listen to the webinar and then provide feedback.

This is your opportunity to find out more about each candidate’s leadership style, and their perspective on the unique community that is Steller. It would be really great if we had a strong turn out of students, staff and parents/guardians for this important event. 

Tami will send out the link to the event closer to the date, but be sure to mark your calendars!

Steller Information Night!

Dear Steller Families,

As you know, Steller is a unique and special school where students thrive as they are inspired to become  independent, confident, self-directed learners. 

We would like to ask your help to spread the word about what a great school this is, and to encourage students to apply for the 2021-2022 school year via the ASD lottery system before the deadline on March 18.

Due to Covid restrictions we won’t be able to use our traditional ways of promoting Steller – the Ice Cream Social and school visits by our students. 

We are excited to offer a fun and informational night via Zoom, led by students and staff.  Interested students and their parents/guardians can join us at 6:00pm on Wednesday, February 17 OR Thursday, February 18. 

They can also learn more about the school by visiting the main ASD website and the Steller Parent Group website.

Please share the Steller Secondary Flyer widely! 

Warm regards,

Kirsten Tschofen 

Chair, Steller Parent Group
