Great Steller BBQ: August 12

Steller Parent Group and Steller Staff are happy to invite all Steller Students, Families and Staff to the Great Steller BBQ of 2021.  This is a great opportunity for everyone to come together as a community after so long apart, meet new friends and catch up with old friends. We look forward to seeing you!

Steller Parent Group will supply hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie options, and drinks. What can you bring?

  • Families with names A – K are invited to bring a side dish to share
  • Families with names L to Z bring a dessert to share 
    • Please make sure your dish is well labeled for allergens, pre-cut and ready to serve, and labeled so you can bring it home at the end of the night! 
  • To reduce waste we invite you to bring your own plates, cutlery and cups.
  • We will be set up in the parking lot and Steller Field, so bring blankets, chairs, and whatever else you need to be comfortable. 

Registration

Registration is not required, but it certainly helps us plan so that we have enough for everyone. 

Volunteers Needed! 

Of course, an event like this isn’t possible without many volunteers to help.  There are many positions available to both students and adults. See here to sign up. 

Save the Date

Tuesday, September 14, 2021  (6:00 to 7:30) – Steller Parent Group Meeting 

UPDATE

Steller Parent Group is committed to doing everything we can to support the safety and wellbeing of our community in light of COVID 19.  Here is the messaging from the board as of July 31st:

1.    Universal masking will be required for all individuals while inside any ASD school or building. Some exceptions will apply. Masking while outside is optional.
2.    Keep ASD Symptom Free. We must all do our part to minimize viral spread. Please stay home and get tested if you are experiencing ANY symptoms.
3.    Cleaning and Disinfecting. Regular cleaning of classrooms, buses, and offices will continue. Hand sanitizer will be readily available and frequent handwashing will be encouraged. Enhancements and upgrades have  been made to building HVAC systems to allow for optimal ventilation and air exchange.
4.    Keeping students and staff in the learning environment. The District will continue to make COVID-19 vaccine clinics available to eligible students (with parental consent), staff, and community members through a contracted provider. Additionally, following new guidance from the CDC, asymptomatic, properly masked students and fully vaccinated individuals will not be required to quarantine if deemed a close contact.

As things are constantly changing we will provide an update on exact practice for the BBQ closer to the date. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school. 

 

Wanted: BBQ’s!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi Everyone, planning for the Back to School BBQ is getting underway and we could use your help!
 
  1. Does anyone in our community have access to a large commercial size BBQ we could borrow? OR
  2. Would any of you be willing to transport your propane BBQ’s to school for us to use (I think we’d need about 4 -5).
  3. I need someone to help with the shopping on August 11th.
  4. Stay tuned for the formal invitation, and volunteer sign up forms!

Happy weekend!

Saturday, May 8 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Steller School and surrounding area.

The Citywide Cleanup “Super Sweeper” Program  is a great way to teach kids the importance of keeping our community clean, and it’s also a lot of fun. Jointly coordinated by the Anchorage School District and the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, the Super Sweeper Program challenges elementary, middle, and high schools to get together to clean trash around their school and in their neighbourhood.

  • Pick up your orange bags and map at Steller Secondary parking lot. 
  • Win door prizes – a $50.00 gift certificate to Fred Meyer, and Steller Spirit Wear.
  • Light refreshments will be served (while supplies last). 
  • Register here. It helps us plan how many people to expect if you register, but please feel free to drop by even if you haven’t registered. 

We will be collecting the following to support Covenant House:

  • Gently used books, CDs etc to sell to Title Wave for credit.
  • NEW travel sized toiletries like shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes and toothpaste, mouthwash, chapstick and deodorant.

National Honor Society Will be Selling Masks to support Bean’s Cafe.

Important Rules to Follow: Be Safe!

  • Wear a mask and practice social distancing to keep everyone safe. 
  • Wear gloves (we will have a limited amount)  and an orange safety vest or bright coloured clothing.
  • Children must be under adult supervision at all times, everyone should use a buddy system.
  • Make good decisions to keep yourself safe. Be aware of the following risks:
    • The area may have needles, and other biohazards* (only adults should consider picking these up).
    • Sharp objects like glass and wire.
    • Steller is surrounded by busy streets, cross safely. 
    • Keep in mind other risks associated with the midtown location.
  • Orange trash bags may not be used for household trash, yard clippings or hazardous waste such as a car battery, or household cleaners.
  • Dress appropriately. Sunscreen, rain gear, waterproof shoes and hats are recommended. Please be aware of private property boundaries and ask permission to clean in these areas.
  • Return orange bags back to Steller for pick up after no later than 1:30 pm.

*Adults may consider bringing a medical sharps container designed for needle collection, available at some pharmacies, or thick plastic jugs for detergent, kitty litter or shampoo (water bottles are too thin and can be punctured.) 

If you have questions or want to volunteer to help organize please contact Kirsten at chairstellerparentgroup@gmail.com
