Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

Happy last week of school! What a wonderful we have going on the Recker campus! Spirit Week is running full throttle and Graduations are in flight! I was just so proud to see how excited the kiddos were for Move Up Day and to learn about next year’s activities. It gives me so much excitement for next year!

– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

Important Announcements 

IT Information from Mr. Rissler

I want to convey my apologies for the technology issues we had with yesterday’s academic awards ceremony. We made a mistake when we set up the YouTube livestream and were not able to broadcast the event live. I know this was very disappointing and frustrating for all those who tuned in to watch. On behalf of the IT department here at San Tan, I apologize for this mistake. I have made changes to make sure this doesn’t happen again. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at
