Letter from the Principal

Dear San Tan Families,As we wrap up the first quarter of the year, please begin to look out for emails from staff with conference times. We offer parent teacher conferences following Fall Break. Monday October 11-13 will be our parent teacher conference dates along with half days of school. During these conferences your teachers will present to you your student’s “Roadrunner Roadmap”. This document encompasses the teacher’s goals for the coming quarter for your student. We are very excited to invite you to campus to see your child’s progress so far this year.
