Errington Edition 1/22

 In Branding

Dear Families,

What a powerful week at San Tan Charter School! I walk around at events like the Multicultural Fair and feel so incredibly blessed for our families, students, teachers, and staff. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time, energy, and heart into the multicultural fair. The event was a huge success and allowed our students to experience cultures from around the world. We have a variety of informational and family friendly events these next few weeks. Be sure to stay tuned to the Errington Edition and any mid-week announcements.
