 In Branding

Dear Sarah,

Save the date for next Wednesday as we prepare for our beloved annual Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! This cherished tradition, which originated in the very first Montessori Preschool class with a simple serving of bean soup by Dr. and Mrs. Sippel, has now become a highly anticipated event at San Tan Charter. Join us on the day before Thanksgiving, where families gather for a delightful picnic-style lunch, bringing their own mouthwatering desserts to share as a community. And don’t forget to bring your favorite desserts to add a touch of sweetness to the occasion!


The front doors will open promptly at 11:00, and you can expect Charlie Brown Thanksgiving to last approximately an hour and a half. Get ready for a heartwarming experience that will leave you feeling grateful and in the festive spirit. It’s a time for everyone to come together and enjoy a picnic lunch as a community. We will also have beautiful artwork from the classes that you can appreciate, and all are welcome to join us and have a great time. While we will have a few tables and chairs set up, please feel free to bring blankets or beach chairs in case we run out of seating space.


Warmest regards,

Sarah Laramie
