 In Branding

Good Morning,


Our administration, teachers, and staff can’t be more excited to announce a FREE Community Wide Event on Friday September 14, 2018 from 4:00-6:00pm. Our staff and teachers will be holding interactive, school-spirit filled activities to get our elementary and middle school students pumped for San Tan Charter School’s 1st Home Football Game. We will have food trucks, petting zoo, pony rides, Art Masterpiece, Play Math, Playworks, 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. I will be sending out additional information in regards to pick up for this event towards the end of the week. After the roundup we will be heading over to our 1st Home Football Game at the Power Campus.  Please register for this event below. See the attached flyer for more information.

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

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 Mrs. Leatham, Ms. Veziroglu, and Mrs. 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.
