Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend. I know mine was filled with family time. I really want to thank everyone who came to and made Charlie Brown Thanksgiving happen. It made my heart so full to see everyone come together outside of the classrooms.

Believe it or not, reenrollment for the 2022-2023 school year is beginning to roll out this week. This year we will be focusing on paper packets and the Online Registration forms through Infinite Campus. We will have very specific instructions for reenrollment in an additional email come out later this week. Please begin checking your student’s backpack for paper packets starting after the email goes out.

Thank you!

Important Announcements


Today is Giving Tuesday. GivingTuesday, which is often stylized as #GivingTuesday, is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It is touted as a “global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world”. GivingTuesday began as a simple idea in 2012 a day that encourages people to do good.

One of the organizations that help support teachers on #GivingTuesday is DonorsChoose. This program helps teachers fund their individual classrooms with projects that they create. What I love most about the program is that it helps teachers request things that are specific to the students that they are helping this year. From playground balls to flexible seating to classroom rugs, teachers can request almost everything under the sun.

This year, while you are making your #givingtuesday charitable donations, please consider donating towards making a teacher’s dream a reality. Thank you so much in advance!

Picture Retakes

Picture retakes will be held tomorrow, if your student needs a retake, please fill out a form that was sent home and alert the classroom teacher to send the student down to the front office to arrange for pictures.
