Armstrong’s Agenda 5/2

 In Branding

Hello San Tan Roadrunners! We are on the home stretch for the school year.  Just a friendly reminder that San Tan believes that modesty is best.  With the warmer weather, it is easy to wear our ‘summer fun’ clothes to school.  Please remind students to wear clothes that are appropriate for school.


PLEASE READ!  San Tan is a nut free campus at all times.  This includes off campus and after hours activities.  We have had several incidents this last week with our nut allergen students being exposed to nuts on campus during and after school hours.  Please remind your students to save their nut cravings for non-school events.  Thank you so much for helping keep ALL of our precious children safe!

Safety Campaign

We’re incredibly grateful for the contributions that were made towards our campus safety campaign last year!  We feel very blessed that our roadrunner family has supported our commitment to student safety.  By close of 2018, our community donated almost $8,000 that helped pay for campus safety upgrades.  Even though we didn’t reach our goal of $40,000, we were  able to put these funds towards impact-resistant window film and blackout curtains for the classrooms.

We still need your help to add more security enhancements in 2019.  Please visit our GoFundMe page to see the campaign’s current status and see how you can help!
