Steller Parent Group Meeting Tuesday, May 10

The Steller Community consists of three pillars: Students, Staff and Parents/Guardians.  Steller Parent Group is an important way for parents and guardians to learn about what is happening at school, have a voice in future decisions, and help create a culture that reflects the communities values. 

All students, staff, and parents/guardians are automatically members, and anyone who attends a meeting has the right to vote on issues. If you have ideas for how we can continue to grow our community, we would love to hear from you.   

Our next meeting is Tuesday, May 10, from 6:00 to 7:00pm on Zoom. 

In addition to the usual updates, we will continue planning our upcoming All Community Meeting: Celebrate Steller! It will be a fun event for our entire Steller community.

  • You can find the Draft Meeting Minutes from the April meeting, and the Agenda for the upcoming meeting HERE.

As always, if you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to reach out.  Email: stellerparentgroup@gmail.com.

Come Support Steller Student Marty – Team Captain of West Hockey Team!

It would be great if Steller students could come to this week’s games. Thursday night is against Dimond and it will be a very, very tough game. West could actually lose (!) as Dimond is really strong and the defending state champs.

Saturday evening is also a very tough game. Saturday is West’s Senior Night, and Marty and the other senior players and cheerleaders will be honored in a special program between periods. It’s the last game of the regular season; the Cook Inlet Conference playoffs start next week.

Marty, who is a team captain, is right now among the top scorers in the CIC, and in fact five of the top 10 scorers are on the West team:

Hi Everyone, planning for the Back to School BBQ is getting underway and we could use your help!
 
  1. Does anyone in our community have access to a large commercial size BBQ we could borrow? OR
  2. Would any of you be willing to transport your propane BBQ’s to school for us to use (I think we’d need about 4 -5).
  3. I need someone to help with the shopping on August 11th.
  4. Stay tuned for the formal invitation, and volunteer sign up forms!

Happy weekend!

Chair, Steller Parent Group
