Tauscher Times 10/27

 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!


Reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, Oct. 27) we are on a half-day schedule (periods 0-3).

We are moving into the thick of things in Quarter 2 and progressing nicely through the curriculum. I have been in a lot of classrooms the past three weeks conducting observations and have been pleased with the amount of participation, discussion and content covered. As always, we see our school and all its programs through the lens of continuous school improvement and we are creating a growth mindset among our team. We are always looking for ways to improve, so let us know how we can do it. There has been a movement of our teachers to work together to conduct peer-peer observations and teachers are self-reflecting and self-evaluating on lessons so we can continue to raise the bar to remain the best small school in the East Valley!

Election Day

On Tuesday, Nov. 3, San Tan Charter is creating its own student voting opportunity here on campus! We will be publishing live updates with the results to our students voting on the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election and will have both the popular vote and the electoral college voting! Make sure to follow San Tan Charter School on Facebook to see how we are progressing throughout the day.

Nut Policy Reminder

Please remember we are a strict, nut-free campus here at San Tan Charter School. All of our catered hot lunches and snacks on campus are nut free, so please be careful not to unintentionally pack any of these items for your students or to bring them on campus for snacks.


Sports Spectator Policy

The Sports spectator policy at San Tan Charter includes wearing masks and, when possible, practicing social distancing. In the gym for volleyball games, seating will be marked to assist with social distancing. Outside for football games we will allow for discretion for the bleachers and personal seating including folding chairs is recommended.


Dress Code

Just a reminder of the San Tan Charter guidelines for dress and the student handbook policy involving dress code. Please make sure your students have enough coverage to maintain modesty and appropriateness in their daily choices for attire.

Also, on the Friday before Halloween, there will be no Halloween costumes allowed on campus. It is, however, Spirit Friday so be sure to have your students dressed in their best Green & Gold!
