Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

I hope you are having a lovely week before school! Teachers returned last week and we have so much to share with you with what we have been training on. I am very excited for all of the academic advancements we are making at our campus.

If you are NOT receiving my emails, my best recommendation is to add me ( as a contact. This will ensure that my emails are not identified as “spam” in your inbox.

– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

Recker Academic Success Kit (RASK)

We are asking families for $30 per child to purchase our “Success Kit”. In the success kit, will be the following items.

  1. Agendas– This is a notebook in which students will be details elements of their day, spelling words etc. School Agendas have long been the go-to method of teaching students responsibility and ownership of their learning. We have determined that, for the agendas to become an effective time and task management tool for the classroom, every student will need one.
  2. School Communication Folder– Families are a powerful influence on children’s academic development. When family members are involved in student work, students’ self-esteem, interest, and language skills improve. To keep families up to speed, it’s crucial to establish a consistent method of communication between home and school. A weekly folder is a perfect method on ensuring active communication because it becomes part of the routine, and parents know to look for it each week.
  3. Data Tracking Kit– Teachers at San Tan use formative and summative data to inform their instruction. Looking at the data helps the teachers understand the individual needs of each student and how to meet those needs. Typically, this data is only looked at by the teachers. However, research has shown that when students themselves identify, reflect, and use their data in their learning, they become active participants in their academic growth. Through our Data Tracking Kit, teachers will be training students how to graph, analyze, and set goals for their learning.
  4. School T-shirt- We wear our school t-shirts on Friday to signify our Roadrunner Pride!
