ACE Program for Sophomores
The Counseling Department is pleased to announce that students can apply for a scholarship to attend Maricopa Community College for FREE while in high school! The ACE program is offered through all Maricopa Community Colleges and we are excited to be partnering with Chandler Gilbert Community College for this great opportunity!
The ACE PLUS (Achieving a College Education) Program is an early outreach, two-year scholarship-based, college preparation program for high school students. The mission of this program is to increase the success rate of first generation, under-represented, and financially dis-advantaged college bound students. ACE PLUS aids the students in their successful completion of high school and assists them with a smooth transition into higher education. Students can earn up to 21 college credits during the course of their junior and senior years. Any sophomores from local high schools may apply.
If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please stop by and see Mrs. Taylor in the counseling office.
Park University Field Trip Reminder
On Thursday, November 15th, our high school students will have the opportunity to tour Park University!
Park University is new to our community and is located in downtown Gilbert. If you would like to learn more, feel free to visit their website using this direct link: https://www.park.edu/academics/explore-majors-programs/?location=az-gilbert.
We will depart San Tan at 9:00am and will return back to campus by 1:00pm. Students will be returning to campus in time for their regularly scheduled lunch. Therefore, lunch will not be provided and students should plan accordingly.
Nut Free School
As a friendly reminder we are a nut free campus. Please remind your child(ren) of this.
With attendance in class as a priority to enhance learning and increase student achievement, San Tan is offering Restorative Justice every Friday afternoon from 3:45-4:15. Every week students’ attendance and tardies reports will be looked at. If a student has reached 4 or more cumulative tardies and absences, an email will be sent to parents from Mrs. Walker, by Wednesday, informing the parents of the time to stay after school. Mrs. Walker will then meet with the student Thursday to also inform the student of staying for Restorative Justice.
Please be aware that Restorative Justice is simply a reflective time to help build a goal for more efficiency and to make up time out of the classroom. Restorative Justice is not a detention setting, and we would like for the time to be more on personal growth and development and understanding of the importance of school and the classroom time. We thank you in advance
for support as we continue to help shape our students with this very important workplace transferable skill. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Walker for any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Science Fair / STEM Festival – Choose one!
It is time for students to choose between our upcoming Science Fair or the
STEM Festival. All Junior High and High School students participate in the
San Tan Science Fair / STEM Festival, although students may choose which
activity they wish to participate in.

If you would like to have retakes of fall pictures, please dress your best on 11/14. Senior Formal Pictures will also be this day. ALL SENIORS must have a formal picture taken for the yearbook.
