Need Parents to Host Grade Level Socials

Dear Steller Families,
The Steller Parent Group is looking for parents to host a grade level parent social in their homes (or coordinate one at some other location). The hope is to help build community by getting to know each other, and the idea is very simple: the host chooses a date and time, puts out an invitation to grade level parents, and everyone who comes brings something to share.

We have hosts for grades 7 & 9, and are looking for the following:
Grade 8
Grade 10
Grade 11 & 12 

If you are interested in hosting, or would like to learn more please contact me at pelletiers04@gmail.com
Sincerely,
Kirsten Tschofen (Ezra grade 7, Eli grade 11)

Parent Group Meeting – Thurs Oct 10th 6pm

 
Thursday October 10th 6:00 pm in Ken’s room is the first meeting of Steller Parent Group. This month’s meeting has been moved from the usual Tuesday to Thursday. Join us to hear about upcoming events, updates from the staff and students, election of officers, progress on this year’s Auction, and other volunteer needs for the coming year. Parent Group raises funding and organizes volunteers to support intensives, special projects proposed by students and teachers, and events throughout the school year. Parent Group is also a great place to connect with other families for help in making the most of Steller’s unique opportunities and navigating challenges you may run into. This is a fairly informal group and all are welcome, as are new agenda items or topics of discussion. Decisions are made by vote of everyone present at the meetings. We are in need of a Treasurer– please email if you may be interested or willing. If you would like to add agenda items or have any questions, please email: stellerparentgroup@gmail.com.
 
Interested in volunteering but unable to attend the meeting? Please email stellerparentgroup@gmail.com, or call or text Co-Chair Ann Mayo-Kiely 907-223-8204. 
 
The meeting runs from 6:00-7:30 in Ken’s room. The doors on the south end of the building will be open. We hope to see you on Tuesday!

An easy way to support Steller

Did you know that the Steller Parent Group currently receives about $1000 a year from the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program based on our collective purchases?  We would love to add your support too!  Please take the time to link your Fred Meyer Rewards account with Steller and Fred Meyers (Kroger) will donate to our school based on your purchases too.  Every dollar counts, here is how to get started:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Steller Secondary at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards  You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number:  RJ417

  • You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
