Tauscher Times 1/26
Hello Power Campus!
Starting next week, we will begin our annual Science Fair and STEM Festival on campus. We are looking forward to seeing all the fun student work on display and cool projects the students have created. This year we have some logistical changes in the works (see detailed information below) so take a look to see how you can participate and join in on the festivities.
On the horizon, we have our spring testing season coming up. As with all tests, we encourage our students to focus only on giving their full concentration and effort during tests. The good results will only come through that dedicated effort.
On the athletics front, our winter sports season is in full swing and we are witnessing some impressive play by our Roadrunner student-athletes. San Tan Charter’s sports broadcasting team is providing high quality and FREE live streaming of our home basketball games. You can watch us compete on the San Tan Charter Athletics YouTube website and follow our San Tan Charter Athletics Instagram.
We have now surpassed 85% enrollment capacity for returning students for next school year. Thank you for doing your part in helping us make informed decisions on staffing and program requirements for the upcoming school year. Make sure, if you haven’t already, to re-enroll your students by clicking on the link below.

We Need Your Help! We are in need of volunteers to assist us in judging science fair projects! Judges will assess the student projects virtually while students present them. It is a thrilling adventure to participate in the learning of our remarkable young scientists. Judges will have an opportunity to ask students questions about their project as they present.
Teachers will monitor the Google Meets and manage the student presentations, no stress for the judges! : -)
