Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

Happy last month of school!! Don’t forget our music concert is TOMORROW!! Information is below!

This NEXT Wednesday (April 26h) we will be conducting a Lockdown Drill to practice our safety scenarios. At San Tan, we firmly believe in safety but also, we believe in a parent’s right to have a say in what their children are exposed to. I wanted to let you know ahead of time so that you can have a conversation with your student or keep your student home if need be. I will be emailing home following the drill to let you know when it is over. I have also attached a “social story” to help guide at home conversations.

– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

Reading Initiative

I am so excited to tell you of an initiative that I am starting that will continue throughout the rest of this year. Dedicated small group reading is proven to not only increase reading scores but also increase student’s love of reading. I am really passionate about students gaining a love of reading so we have created a new initiative.

We would love to invite parent volunteers daily between 8:30-9:30, in half an hour segments, to read to small groups of students in the library. I have attached the sign up. In the sign up, you will see classrooms with teacher’s names in it so that you know which classes you are volunteering for.

Grandparents are also welcome if they are interested! I am really excited about this initiative and want to thank you all for your consideration.

Thank you for your time and your devotion to our community,
