Important Announcements

New Faces

I do want to let you all know that Ms. Aleman’s last day is this Friday. I wanted to take this time to thank her for her tireless service to San Tan and to the Recker Campus. As a graduate of San Tan Charter School in 2021, Ms. Aleman has fulfilled many roles at STCS including our front desk for the past year. Her face is something we have all appreciated and grown used to seeing at the front desk, she will be very missed. I personally want to thank her for all she has done for me and for my family. She will be coming in to guest teach as she embarks on her new adventure to become go back to school to become a nail technician.

Please join me in welcoming our new Front Desk Assistant, Ms. Truelove. Ms. Truelove will be joining starting Monday October 31st. Here is a bit about her!

“My name is Chloe Truelove and I am honored to be a part of the San Tan team! I’m excited to see how I grow within the San Tan community. I am an engaged mom of two young girls. I lived on the east coast most of my life and just moved to Arizona in the last couple years. I’ve always had a soft spot for the west coast because that’s where I was born! I love reading and writing, it’s a goal of mine to have a book published before I’m 40!”

Welcome Ms. Truelove!!
