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)

Welcome Message from Steller Parent Group

August 25, 2022

Dear Steller Families,

Steller Parent Group wants to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning Steller families. 

The Steller Parent Group is an integral part of the Steller Community.  We meet on the second Tuesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in person and on Zoom.  Every member of the Steller Community – Staff, Students and Parents/Guardians are automatically part of SPG and welcome to attend, ask questions and share their ideas.  We would love to see you at our first meeting on Tuesday, September 13 at 6:00pm. We hope to have both an in person option and Zoom.

Steller Parent Group is one of the three Pillars of our school: Staff – Students –  Parents/Guardians. The purpose of the SPG is to enrich the lives of Steller students through the financial support and leadership of active parents and guardians. We strive to promote parent and guardian involvement in school activities. Traditionally we host events during the school year, raise funds to support school initiatives through the Steller Auction, and coordinate volunteers. 

All of this takes the hard work and dedication of our community members and we want to invite you to get involved by taking on a formal position in the board, or simply actively attending our meetings. We are currently recruiting for a variety of positions. 

Participating in the SPG has many benefits, including the opportunity to make connections with other parents and staff, and the opportunity to effectively make positive change. We all want the very best education and experiences for our children, and when we work together we can make it happen. 

If you are interested in learning more about SPG positions please let us know, and as always, we welcome your thoughts and ideas about how Steller Parent Group can serve you. 

Warm regards,

Kirsten Tschofen
