Errington Edition 10/2

Rainy Day Greetings,


I hope everyone has been enjoying the rain as much we are! Thank you for your patience, safety, and understanding as we worked through drive lane this morning. Our ultimate goal is safety and that also means keeping as much drive lane traffic off of Elliot and Recker Roads as possible. We are in our last week before October Break and what a full week we have with conferences, half day camps, and Homecoming Spirit Week! We still have space in our half day conference camps, please sign up here: and pay in the front office. It has truly been a pleasure to serve as your principal this quarter. I can’t think of a more hard working staff, excited group of learners, and supportive families. Thank you for the bottom of my heart for continuing to choose San Tan as your school of choice.
