Auction Reminder & Volunteers Needed

Going once, going twice, SOLD! Please join us for the annual Steller Parent Group Auction this Saturday, November 4, and be ready for the fun!

If you haven’t already donated items for the auction please consider this awesome opportunity to get rid of stuff that might be cluttering up your space but could be worth something to someone else 🙂

Since this is the only fundraising activity on the calendar for Steller at the moment this is a really important event. Steller parent group is the primary source of funding for classroom needs, travel intensive‘s, community events, and lots of other school funding requirements. 

We also need volunteers to help make this a great Auction. Please consider signing up for an hour or two on Saturday as a helper! Please contact Judith Davis (jlevans99516@gmail.com).

We Still Need Parent Volunteers to help with Sophomore Day lunch

Parents,
I still have not gotten volunteers to bring lunch to the BP Energy Center on Sophomore Day. I have the okay from Parent Group for reimbursement for pizza and salad, etc., but need someone to pick up the food and get it there. You are welcome to stay, have lunch and hear the presenters. It should be a very interesting day.  Attached is the schedule.

If I do not receive volunteers, I’m going to have to go down the list of sophomore and call parents. If you have that day off or if you can take even a couple of hours off to pick up the food from Costco and bring it to us, it sure would help me out. If you can help in anyway just let me know and we can work something out. I appreciate your help. Please make certain too that your sophomore has returned his/her consent form.
Thanks,
Nurse Anne
