Laramie Letter 12.7.21
Letter from the Principal
Dear San Tan Families,
I hope your week is going well. We have lots of exciting things happening on the Recker Campus. First, I am very excited to announce that we will be bringing a new special to our special’s schedule starting January 18th. I am thrilled to tell you that Ms. Kathryn Gribbin will be a very welcomed addition to our staff as our newest Media Specialist. She will be working with every classroom to provide Library and Computer instruction. I am excited to see how the new special will grow the student’s strengths!
Next, as Dr. Sippel emailed out this week, we are excited to announce that starting next school year, in partnership with EF Tours, San Tan Charter will be offering three major experiential learning opportunities for our 6th grade, 8th grade, and Senior Trips to celebrate these education milestones!
Aside from our yearly upgraded trips that we are taking every March, next year we will begin organizing specialized class trips. Next year’s 6th graders will have the opportunity to head to Washington D.C, 8th graders will have the opportunity to head to Belize and 12th grade will have the opportunity to take a 9-day excursion to London, Paris, and Rome. These added experiences will enrich students’ lives and will be exciting opportunities for younger students to look forward to for years to come!
Finally, please look for an additional email from me this week with all the details about our upcoming music concert (next Wednesday, December 15th).
We have a half-day coming up on December 17th. If you need camp care on that half-day, please fill out the following link.
We have begun re-enrollment for next year. We have a two-process step for re-enrollment. Reenrollment paperwork and Infinite Campus Kiosk will be due by January 14th.
STEP 1: Please complete the online application for your children (One online application per family). Infinite Campus KIOSK LINK

Arizona Tax Credit Program
The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Charter School such as Music Education and Media Sciences, which each student participates in, and Physical Education including Character Education, in which students participate daily. It also helps support our newest addition of Library and computer lab time for our students.
The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.

Winter Music Concert
The concert is Wednesday, December 15th. We will be holding the performance at Mission Church (4450 E Elliot Rd, Gilbert, AZ 85234).
We are so excited about our venue change. We are asking for $10 per family in order to set the cost of the venue. This “Family Pass” will allow you to attend the entire night of shows if you would like!
Please pay close attention to your child’s showtime, as we have three different performances that night. Your child will need to arrive 30 minutes before their designated showtime to check-in.
5:00 – 5:30 – Kindergarten – 2nd grades
6:00 – 6:30 – Montessori K-6th
7:00 – 7:30 – 3rd – 6th grades
The dress code for the concert is black bottoms (skirt, pants, leggings, etc.), a white blouse or nice top, and the child’s choice of winter/holiday accessories (festive bows, scarves, ties, necklaces, or hats.) Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
