Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

I am just writing to give a HUGE celebration to the campus and a huge thank you to families who donated! Every single one of the open Donor’s Choose projects were funded on Giving Tuesday. I woke that morning with such a feeling of gratitude towards our community and the many many businesses who matched donations during #givingtuesday.

We are so excited to roll out current family enrollment for next school year. During this time, we are planning on a “normal” school year. Of course, we will work within the CDC and state guidelines to make sure everyone is safe during this unknown time. I am so excited for our community and the future of San Tan Charter School.

– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

Gifted Testing

San Tan’s annual Gifted Testing event is approaching quickly!

If you are interested in having your child tested for giftedness, please complete the digital Parent Request Form and process the $50 Co-Pay online.  Students in grades K through 12 are welcome to participate in our Spring testing session.   If your child is already identified as gifted, they do not need to retest.  Gifted testing will begin in mid- February.

Note:  If your child is currently in a gifted class and identified as ‘provisional’ they will automatically be retested, you do not need to send in the recommendation form. : -)

**Gifted Testing Requests are due no later than January 15th.
