Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

I hope you are having a great week! I do want to keep you all apprised of some transitions you will see within the coming months. I am expecting my second daughter at the beginning of March. The current plan is that I will be at work until March conferences and then I will be out on maternity leave for a few weeks through the fourth semester. I am planning on returning back to work the last week of school and will be on campus for May conferences. During my time away, Dr. Sippel will be filling in at the Recker Campus to handle the day to day operations. I have every confidence that the students will really enjoy having him there! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns or want to get on my calendar ahead of my leave. Thank you all for your wonderful support!

Enrollment season is upon us! We are already about 85% full for next year, so please reenroll to save your student’s spot for next year by clicking on the Parent Portal Enrollment Link.

– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

K-4 Learning Celebration

For our K-4 Learning Celebration coming up, we have decided that due to the potential for added exposure, we will have our Learning Celebration online rather than in person. Teachers will work with their classes to film students presenting their learning celebration projects. A link to this password protected video will be sent home to families on Friday, February 5th. Thank you for your understanding about this. We have really been making sure that we are making responsible decisions during this historic time.

On February 5th, STEM competitions will be held at school and streamed live for parents to watch. Students will report to the back field in small groups to compete with their STEM builds. Awards will be handed out at the festival.
