 In Branding

Dear Brandon,

As we push ahead in our second-semester learning and gear up for state testing, earlier this year you may be remember San Tan Charter invested in new programming to assist students and teachers in that work. As a supplement to our curriculum, we are witnessing growth with teachers and studetns using Albert.io to guide students for ACT, SAT, and other state/university test prep! Check-in with your students to see what they think, as we have had all of our students engaging with over 140,000 items offered in math and science, English, and more.

This year we set our sights on having 5% growth as a school on our state testing scores. Please help me congratulate our students and our teachers on their efforts!

Also on the academics front, please note our annual Science Fair and STEM Fest happening January 31 and February 2nd! Reminder that January 31st we will be on a half-day schedule before starting the science fair in the gym at 1:00pm.

Tax Credit

The giving season is still upon us! This year’s tax credit giving goal is $100,000.00.

Your gift — large or small — will make a difference.

With your support, we can continue to provide the programs outlined below;

  • Culinary Arts: Restaurant quality cutlery, pots/pans, additional shelving, and supplies for the classroom
  • Fine Arts: Music for concerts, playbills, programs, paint, art supplies, and sound equipment
  • Full-Day Kindergarten Scholarship Grants
  • Library: Shelves and books
  • Health Care Supplies

  • Clubs

There are TWO ways to give!

In addition, our Montessori Preschool School gives out around $45,000.00 a year in scholarship to those families in need, we are able to offer these scholarships because of the Arizona School tax credit program. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. You do not have to have a child at the school to pledge, you must only be an AZ State resident paying AZ State taxes.
