Laramie Letters 9.28.21
Letter from the Principal
Dear San Tan Families,
I hope you are having a nice Fall break! We have break from September 25th– October 10th. Following break, we have 3 half days where we have parent teacher conferences. We are so excited to present the Roadrunner Roadmaps that the teachers have created for your students. These documents were formerly called the Individual Learning Plans and we rebranded them this summer. These are a snapshot for you as to what your student will be learning in the following quarter.
– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

Just a quick point of clarification. Over the summer, while we were looking at our school calendar, we decided to move our conference days to Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (October 11th-13th) following October Break rather than the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (October 13-15th) following the break. So, October 11th-13th are half days where we dismiss 11:00-11:30.
We are asking parents to help support our staff by providing dinner items during the evening of our late-night teacher conferences in October. Our theme for the late night on Tuesday, October 12th is a Picnic Theme. Our teachers will be getting a dinner break from 4:30-5:30. We have 70 staff members on campus this year. To sign up, please click the link below. We sincerely appreciate any and all donations.
