November 7th, 2018 5:30 to 7:30p.m.

*Groups rotate, it is OK if you arrive a little later than 5:30*

Gifting evening will offer an array of high interest topics specifically
designed to help answer questions for gifted parents.  You will travel as a

small discussion group between the various topics to receive a personalized learning experience where your questions will be individually addressed.

Topics include ‘What exactly is gifted?’, ‘Why does my child have so much

anxiety?’, ‘Why does my child do the crazy things they do?’, ‘How can I
assist or enrich my child from home?’, and much more!

Children under the age of 10 are welcome to attend childcare for $5 (cash only) up front.


Please RSVP to assist us in providing enough materials.

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
