Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,

Pictures pictures! We have our picture day coming up tomorrow! Please see the information below for scheduling. We also have our first half day coming up tomorrow. I know that sometimes grandparents and other family members pick up on half days so I will be sending a special email with tips and tricks separately. Please share it with whoever is picking up the students. We also ask for patience as this is the first time for many for using the app.

We have our first Varsity Football home game at the Power Campus on Friday! We will be announcing the Power and Recker Student Council officers at Half Time and we would love as many students there as possible! This is a white out game therefore your STCS shirt that came with the RASK kit is the perfect attire. If any parents would like to purchase one, they are $10 and can be purchased at either school’s front desks or there will be a booth at the game! See you there!

– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

iLEAD Poem

At our campuses, we have historically focused on Character Counts and our iLEAD values. We typically have said our Roadrunner Character pledge to highlight the Character Counts values. This year, we are looking to create a “Roadrunner iLEAD Pledge”. We are creating a community competition for creative individuals who wish to leave their mark on STCS for years to come.

Here is the information:

  1. Take the iLEAD values and compose a poem that could be said daily at both campuses.
  2. The poem should be no longer than the Roadrunner Character Pledge which is around a paragraph. We have added the old Roadrunner Character Pledge below for reference

“I am a Roadrunner of Character, I will be worthy of Trust

I will be Respectful and Responsible, doing what I must

I will always act with Fairness, I will show the I Care

I will be a Good Citizen and always do my share”

  1. Poems should be submitted through the following LINK
  2. All Poems are due by August 31st
  3. The poem selected will be announced September 7th.
