Accepting Donations to the Steller Market All Week!

What: The Steller market is a thrift/craft event where you will find:

  • student arts and crafts

  • affordable clothing for students grade 7 to 12 (think things like dances or interviews)

When: March 22nd 3:30-6:00pm

Where: Steller Secondary

Why: All proceeds will go to OpGroup

How you can help:

Donate your gently used clothing for grades 7 to 12. Keep this in mind:

To Donate, bring your items to the drop off spots set up in the front office and in Allison’s room.

For arts and crafts, there will be a survey where you can tell us about the piece and who made it. If you are worried about your donation being damaged, feel free to reach out to us (Jayla, Maia, Ash, Kai, or Allison) so we can collect it ourselves. We can’t wait to see your contributions.

Market will be Friday, March 22nd. 3:30 pm to 6:00pm

And please mark your calendars to attend the Steller Market and get your hands on great hand crafted pieces from our community, pick up some clothes for your teen, and support this wonderful student-led initiative.

Jayla, Maia, Ash, Kai,

Volunteers for Valentine’s Dance and Prom!!

Steller dances are one of my favorite volunteer opportunities! It’s a great way to get an inside peek at the Steller Way in action.

Steller’s 9th grade class will be hosting a Valentine’s Dance on Friday, February 10th from 7-11pm at the Steller MPR. The dance is open to all Steller students. We are in need of 4 volunteers for the dance from 6:45pm-11:15pm. For questions contact Ashley. 

Steller Prom Committee is also looking for some volunteer help! For questions contact Allison. 

Check out the Sign Up Genius here.

(Don’t forget – ASD requires all volunteers to complete the ASD Volunteer Application before they can volunteer, and it takes about a week. See here for more information





Back to School and All Community Meeting Thursday, September 9


Hello Steller Families!

Time sure flies when you’re having fun! We have already finished up our third week of school! Thank you for your continued support of our school and compliance with the COVID-19 Mitigation plan.

However, due to the rise of COVID-19 cases within our community and the rising concern associated with that, we will be canceling the Back to School and All Community Meeting on September 9th and moving to a new Zoom format for the foreseeable future. This will ensure that we will be doing our part to limit the number of in-person meetings, as well as providing you with pertinent information for the school year. You will be able to find more information on our website.

Thank you for your continued patience and support during these times.

Have a great Labor Day and enjoy the long weekend!
