A Welcome Message from the Steller Parent Group
Steller Parent Group wants to extend a warm welcome to all new Steller families. Steller is a special place, with a unique philosophy of learning: inspiring a community of independent, confident, self-directed learners and we are sure you are going to love it here as much as we do.
The Steller Parent Group is an integral part of the Steller Community. The purpose of the SPG is to enrich the lives of Steller students through the financial support and leadership from all active parents and guardians. We strive to promote parent and guardian involvement in school activities. To this end we host events during the school year, such as the start of the year BBQ, All Community Meetings and Annual Movie Day and we raise funds to support school initiatives through Cups for Kids, and coordinate volunteers whenever they are needed.
All of this takes the hard work and dedication of our community members. We think parental participation is more important now than it ever has been, and want to invite you to get involved and share your ideas. Each one of us has different skills, talents, and resources that are very much needed to make Steller what it is. For some it is volunteering to help a classFor others, it is heading up or joining a committee. Even simply attending our monthly meetings helps create community. We have tasks that need to be done during the day, in the evening, and many that don’t even require coming to school. We all want the very best education and experience for our children, and when we work together we can make it happen.
We will be hosting our first All Community Meeting on Wednesday, August 30, from 6:00 to 7:30pm. All three Pillars of our school – students, parents/guardians and teachers are invited to attend and get to know each other. We will be discussing our community goals for the 2023-2024 school year, introducing staff, and then parents and guardians are invited to meet with teachers in their classrooms. Light snacks and refreshments will be on offer as well!
We are happy to be able to meet in person again for our Monthly Meetings (we are looking into Zoom options as well). Everyone is more than welcome to attend and we look forward to seeing you!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out any time.
