Volunteers Needed for Aurora Music Festival!

Steller Secondary is so proud to present to our community the Aurora Music Festival! This is an awesome event for smaller school to travel to Anchorage and show off their musical chops. Steller students have participated every year for many years now, and we always do very well! 

We would love for our Steller community to come support our stellar Band and Orchestra students. Schedules to come soon.

We are expecting almost 200 students, and will need volunteers to help make this event a great success for everyone! Please check out the form here, and sign up!


Addams Family Values Community Event!

You are Invited to the Steller Parent Group Community Event!

April 23rd, 1pm @ Bear Tooth Theatrepub

Tickets for sale starting March 21st.

In addition to being a great opportunity for Steller Families to get together, Steller Parent Group gets a percentage of the box office revenue and we use that money to fund great community events like the Start of the Year BBQ, student intensives, school equipment and more! The theatre has a 400 people capacity and we want to fill the place up, so

  • invite your friends
  • invite your family
  • invite your family’s friends
  • and your friend’s families!

Would you participate in a Silent Auction?

Dear Steller Students, Parents and Guardians,

Steller Parent Group is planning a fun community event on Sunday, April 23, 2023 at Bear Tooth Theatrepub. All members of the Steller Community are invited to attend the matinee showing of Addams Family Values. SPG will receive a portion of the ticket sales.  

The Fundraising Committee is also considering hosting a small online auction of maybe 5-8 big ticket items and/or Advisory Baskets. This would be open to both members of our community, and the general public. 

We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete our survey, to indicate your interest in donating a big ticket item, or donating for an Advisory Basket. 

Big ticket items would be a minimum value of about $400. We are thinking of things like cabin stays and other tourism related activities, custom artwork, and more. Another popular idea would be to share a special skill – for example if you are a great cook you could offer to cook a dinner party for the first 8 people that bid the minimum (your house or theirs), or perhaps a cookie decorating party or similar. Think opportunities to get to know each other and build community. We’d be thrilled to work with you to work out details if you have a starting idea. 

Advisory Baskets usually involve choosing a theme and collecting the items. We would need one student volunteer per advisory to put the basket together. 

This information will help us decide if this is something our community wants to do, and helps us plan how best to spend our time as volunteers.

And, as always, if you would like to help, we’d love to have you!

New Steller Directory!


The Steller Parent Group (SPG) has in past years hosted a directory through a hosting service that required an annual cost to the SPG. This year we are trying to gather the information voluntarily through a simple Google questionnaire. The result will be a list or spreadsheet with basic contact information for individuals who agree to participate. We will need to update each school year.

We would like to invite you to opt in to the Steller Directory by answering with as much information as you are comfortable sharing with the rest of the school’s parents.

This should take less than five minutes to complete. 

Students, staff, and parents/guardians are welcome to join our directory. 

If you would like to join use this link.

Steller is the Place to Be!

We all know Steller is a great place to learn – help us get the word out! Encourage your friends and neighbours to come to our Ice Cream Social on Wednesday, February 15, from 6:00 to 7:30pm. 

It would be great if you could download our poster and pamphlet below and share on social media, or where ever there are kids and parents. 

If you have a connection to an elementary school in Anchorage and would be willing to reach out to their administration or PTA let us know. Having a personal recommendation is such a powerful testament.

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

Volunteers to Complete District Application

Since July 2022 ASD had had a new application process for anyone who volunteers in ASD Schools. 

“All volunteers (includes chaperones, drivers, and partner organizations) must complete a
volunteer application and sign a liability waiver each school year. This requirement ensures
that the District has the most up-to-date information on those volunteering. The application
and waiver can be found on the website for online submission or printing.” (Read more here) 

The process is not complicated and can be done online or on paper (printed copies are available through the school office). In order to ensure that you can volunteer when you are needed we are asking all parents and guardians to complete the application now.  SPG will have a number of opportunities where we will need volunteers in the next few months:

  • Ice Cream Social on January 15
  • Aurora Music Festival in the spring
  • Passage Mentors
  • Moviethon on March 26

Visit the district website here to complete your application now!
