Errington Edition 9/11

 In Branding

Good Afternoon,


This is quite an exciting week for our school community! We have both PlayMath and Art Masterpiece volunteer trainings happening, see details below. Then on Friday we will be opening our doors right after dismissal to current and prospective families to celebrate what it’s like to be a San Tan Roadrunner! Our teachers will be hosting several activity stations throughout the campus:

  • Boca Taqueria and Nitro Live Ice Creamery Food Trucks
  • Carter Farms petting zoo & pony rides
  • Horse Shoes, roping cattle, and bull riding
  • Art Masterpiece, Play Math & Playworks
  • Middle School Spirit Stations, and much more!

Do you know a family that may be interested in San Tan Charter School this year? Bring them along and both families will receive FREE admission to the football game with a school tour.

Please register for this event here:



We will be dismissing ALL K-7 Recker students at 3:35pm on Friday September 14, 2018 for our Recker Roundup Community Event. This is will be very similar to our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Event where you PARK your cars, bring CAR CARDS for security reasons, come directly to your child’s classroom, and pick them up for the event. We will have most of the event all set up, so please enjoy and have FUN! Parking suggestions for this event will be in our parking lot, the church across the street, etc… Please remember to not park in the neighborhood where you see NO Parking Signs. Thank you for your flexibility, support, and love for our school community.

Play Math 2018-2019 School Year Volunteer Program

We have an exciting opportunity for volunteer training coming September 12 from 11:45-12:45 or 5:30-6:30 PM. This is for our PLAY MATH PROGRAM. Play math is a neurocognitive motor math program designed to teach children ages 5-12 math facts and factors. Meet other parents and volunteers and learn fun ways to help your student or other children be successful in learning their math facts.  School volunteers work with small groups of 4 or 5 students by counting, skip counting, and working on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts while playing games and through physical movement.  Students will be excited when you come to volunteer since they enjoy playing the games and feel successful.  A volunteer for this program can participate any day of the week at a times which are convenient in your schedule. If you have questions please contact Marthana Hall by email at .

Please sign up for the training here:

Art Masterpiece Training

We need a few more volunteers for a couple more classrooms!

Art Masterpiece is a parent driven, volunteer, art program that allows elementary students to experience a variety of art education lessons and activities. We will be having a training Thursday September 13, 2018 at two times: 9am or 6pm. Please designate which training you would like to attend. This training will be provided by a few very experienced Art Masterpiece parent volunteers Ms. Leatham, Ms. Veziroglu, and Ms. Zapytowski.

Sign Up for Training and Classroom Volunteer

The teacher will remain in the classroom during your lesson to help facilitate. Then the magic happens and the kids just adore the process as much as the product. For middle school, we are doing monthly activities so I will have a cohort of volunteers who will work with Mrs. Simonton, the Assistant Principal, to schedule lessons. We are planning two art walks that will coincide with the music concerts. This is where volunteers will showcase their classes art work.

Guest Teacher Openings

Guest Teacher – we are in need of guest teachers to fill in when our teaching staff is out ill. If you have been a guest teacher for us in the past, please email me at  to get on the list for this school year. If you are new, please also reach out to me for the appropriate information.

Our goal to enhance the security of San Tan Charter School. To accomplish this, we have started a campaign to raise funds to install security systems on both the Power and Recker campuses for the 2018-2019 school year.

This system is comprised of three parts:
• First, we will install a visitor screening system at the front desks called LobbyGuard. Learn more. (THIS HAS BEEN FULLY FUNDED)
• Second, we will install impact/shatter-resistant 3M Safety and Security Window Film on all the windows on campus.  Learn more. (WE ARE GETTING CLOSE)
• Lastly, we will install 16 new surveillance cameras to cover entrances and outdoor common areas which will log multiple days of activity. 

For just $47 per student, this project will be fully funded.
Thank you for your donation in this initiative to keep our students safe.
