Armstrong’s Agenda 11/21
Hello Power Campus Roadrunners! Happy Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Day!
Suns Career Event for High School Families
Our high school students have an awesome field trip opportunity available to them! On Friday, December 6th, our Roadrunners are invited to attend a Phoenix Suns Career event. At this event, they will learn about career opportunities within a sports organization and will get to meet Suns executives. Students who attend this field trip will also get 1 ticket to the Phoenix Suns game that evening! Please note that students will leave campus around 11:00am and will not return back to campus until 11:00pm; meaning, students will not come back to campus in between the career event and the game. If your student(s) would like to attend, please fill out the attached permission slip and return to the front office by November 29th.
ONLY THE FIRST 50 STUDENTS to sign up will be able to attend.

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.
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.
