BBQ Tomorrow!


 Great Steller BBQ of 2023 is today! Tuesday, August 15, 6:00 to 7:30

Meet other students, and families, staff, and Steller Parent Group. Mingle. Maybe you will find that last minute car share you are looking for! 

Steller Parent Group will supply hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie options, and drinks. 

What can you bring?

  • Families with names A – L are invited to bring a side dish to share
  • Families with names M to Z bring a dessert to share 
    • Please make sure your dish is well labeled for allergens, pre-cut, preferably and ready to serve. Label your dishes and take them back at the end of the night.

A few final details:

  1. In case of light rain we will forge ahead with the Can-do Steller Spirit. If you have “Pop-Up Tents” you can bring that would be great. Dress appropriately! 
  2. Bring your own chairs, tables, blankets and whatever else you need to be comfortable! 
  3. Please remember to bring your own dishes – we are trying to minimize waste.
  4. We need a few more volunteers for the second shift so our first shift gets to mingle
    1. BBQ meisters (6:30 to 7:30)
    2. Food servers (6:45 to 7:30)

Sign up here: .

5. If everyone helps stack chairs, takes down tents and brings home their own dishes at the end of the night its a HUGE help to our volunteer crew! 

We are looking forward to seeing you all there! 

Got Grill Skill?

The Steller BBQ is just a few weeks away and we are excited to see Steller students, families and guardians, and staff! 

If you have grill skills we need you! We have rented a commercial grill and are looking for one person to be the BBQ lead, and a few more to staff the BBQ.  You can sign up for the Grill, help serve food, and other jobs here

Support our Steller Prom Committee!

Steller Prom Committee has been working hard all year to plan and fundraise for a great event for our students, and to show our support for their hard work we are collecting donations. 

As always, any student who would like to attend a Steller event, but costs are prohibitive, can contact the Steller Office and funds are available. This year we are also inviting the Steller community to make an additional donation to help reduce the overall price of tickets for all students. If we raise $1500 we can reduce the cost to just $25.00 per ticket!

Donating is easy – just click on the DONATE button here,

and send a quick email to our treasurer saying the amount you donated so we can keep track! 

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
