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.
Chair, Steller Parent Group

Dear Steller Families, Students and Staff,
We are happy to announce the creation of the official Steller Instagram Account @steller_s_official. All students, staff and families are encouraged to follow!
This account was created with the goal of connecting the Steller Community, especially during this time of distance. You will find information and photos related to the Steller community and events. It will also serve as a way to collect pictures for the Yearbook until we are back in person.
The account is run through OpGroup in a newly created Cabinet Position of Social Media Liaison – currently Eli P. a senior.
Only students with a signed District Media Consent Form will be included in Instagram posts. If you are not sure of your permission status please check with the office. Parents/Guardians may also write directly to Reed to inform him if they don’t want their student’s image to be included in any Instagram posts.
You don’t need an Instagram Account to follow, and can see the feed at the Steller Parent Group Website.
To submit photos, announcements or questions please email email@example.com. All submissions require first and last name and grade of everyone in the photo. Only first name and last initial will be used in the posts.
For any questions please email Eli at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to having some fun on this account and hope to see you there!
