Dear San Tan Families,

I hope you are all having a wonderful week! We have our Picture Day tomorrow and I have attached our schedule to this email as well! I can’t wait to see all the students smiling their best smiles tomorrow!!

We are going into a really exciting week with our MARVELous Homecoming next week! We are having a full week of Dress Up days along with a Door Decorating Contest that the students will participate in. I have attached the rubric for the door decorating contest in this email so you can spot all the fun!

Next Week, Quick reminder that all the homecoming fun is in conjunction with our Parent Teacher Days next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We will have half days each day of conferences. Next wednesday also marks our celebration of National Peace Day. More details are below for our activity next week!

Homecoming Game

In celebration of a job well done with singing the National Anthem at the Diamondbacks Game, we are inviting the choir to perform at the Homecoming Football Game September 23rd. National Anthem would be sung about 6:45 PM and the students will also be trained to sing the San Tan Fight as the choir will sing the fight song during the first score (touchdown/field goal).

Peace Day

Typically, we have an activity on the day to remind our students about how to bring peace to the world. Last year, we focused on mindfulness and destressing activities. This year, we are looking at inclusiveness and how to show friends that you care.

Student and the teachers will be creating and decorating a Buddy Bench for our playground.  Buddy Benches were invented to combat loneliness in schools. Students will be guided to understand that those who sit on the Buddy Bench are nonverbally signally to others that they are feeling lonely and isolated and need a friend to play with or someone to talk to. Student will make promises to invite those who are sitting on the Buddy Bench to play or talk by tying a ribbon to the bench, symbolizing their promise.

Parent-Teacher Conference Dinner Donations

We are having our Fall Late-night Parent Teacher Conference Thursday September 22nd and would greatly appreciate your donations for dinner. Our teachers and staff will be here all day and night and love your kindness and amazing dinners! The theme this time around is “Breakfast for Dinner”!
