Steller Parent Group Meetings

About

Steller Parent Group meets once a month via Zoom.  We hear reports from the principal (Reed), 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 happing 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.
