Steller Parent Group Meetings

Steller Parent Group Bylaws

Steller Parent Group Bylaws 2020-2021 were amended in October of 2020, and should be reviewed again in 2023 unless there are major changes before then. 

About

Steller Parent Group meets once a month in person and/or via Zoom.  We hear reports from the principal (Maria), a staff representative, and OpGroup to find out more about what is happening at school. This is followed by reports from the Steller Parent Group Treasurer and Chair. New business will include requests for funding from staff, students, parents or the SPG, as well as any other events and activities the SPG is leading or supporting. 

Attending these meetings is an important way to stay informed about what is happening at school, meet teachers and other parents, and have a say in decisions. 

Members

All parents and guardians of Steller students are automatically members of the Steller Parent Group. Donations are not required for membership. Your participation, your voice, and your vote are all essential to the health and effectiveness of this community group. Students are always welcome to attend.  All members can bring a proposal, a funding request, or communicate ideas or concerns.

Budget

Steller Parent Group is a charitable organization to which contributions are tax-deductible. In a typical year most money raised through Parent Group goes to four areas:

  • Operational expenses
  • School hosted events, activities and projects (Souper Steller, Ice Cream Social, Steller Olympics etc.)

  • Grants:
    • Steller Travel Intensives 
    • Intensives

The DRAFT budget for 2020-2021 was presented at the SPG meeting, and to Steller Staff, on October 13.  All community members are invited to provide feedback by emailing stellerparentgroup@gmail.com.  The budget will be voted on and adopted at the SPG meeting on November 10.
