Tauscher Times 11.1.22

 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Last week was an awesome week on campus building on our positive school culture with the annual Gifted Camp, a Senior Night football win, and our well attended Electives Showcase! Thank you for helping us keep high expectations for students and for all the incredible parent support. These efforts help more than you know in our effort to build towards continuous school improvement.

Speaking of improvement, school letter grades were officially released by the State last night and the Power Campus continues on its upward trajectory. Given the combined efforts of students, faculty, and support from our parents, the Power Campus improved its score over 14% from its score last year. As more specific details are released, we will share out to our community our areas of our success and areas needed for focused improvement.

Both Junior High and High School students will transform classrooms into geographic regions and present their learning on the various cultures around the world to each other this Friday.

Student Technology

San Tan Charter utilizes student laptops to access curriculum for the majority classes at the Power Campus. Many families have not yet paid to lease a school device or register their personal device.  This week administration is reconciling all technology and if students are still without devices, will receive a call home for payment for lease or to have their device secured on our Google Enterprise for Education.

Thank you to all our families who have been proactive in paying for the school laptop lease or registration. If you have not yet done so, please make that payment to avoid a call home or to have personal devices held until registration is complete.
