Steller Auction Committee Needs You!

Steller Parent Group is very excited to be planning our first major fundraising event since January of 2020!

We have been operating on funds raised at that event since then, and our account is in need of replenishing! The tentative plan is to host an evening event with drinks and appetizers, and featuring a silent and live auction of items donated from Anchorage businesses and the Steller community.  

We need a strong group of dedicated members of our community to help with the following:

  • Co-chair or chair (we have one person willing to lead who would like a co-chair)
  • Treasurer
  • Graphics and Communication
  • Donation Procurement 
  • Auction Software Expert
  • Basket Creation 
  • Decorations 
  • Volunteer Coordinator 

If you have experience in any of these, or want to learn, we would love to hear from you! Planning an event like this is lots of hard work, but is also lots of fun, and so rewarding. Email Kirsten at StellerAuctionChair@gmail.com .

Funds raised from the Auction are used by SPG to pay for the following:

  • Grants (Intensives, Travel Intensives, Program Support, Student and Staff requests)
  • School hosted events (like Aurora music festival and sophomore breakfast)
  • SPG hosted events (like Steller BBQ and All Community Meetings)
  • SPG operational costs (insurance, website domain etc)

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:

We are all super proud of your hard work and success Marty and wish you the best this weekend!
