 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

This week is packed with highlights from academics and the arts. Tonight on campus San Tan Charter School will induct its Class of 2021-22 National Art Society, Junior National Honor Society and National Honor Society and starting this Thursday our performing arts students hit the stage with a three-day lineup of the school’s Fall Play, Pride and Prejudice. Just this morning we received news that our Roadrunner seniors have surpassed over $360,000 in academic scholarship money and this week we have math competitions happening on campus.

On the sports front, Thursday and Friday winter sports seasons will get underway with our first basketball scrimmages, with the varsity boys traveling to play Maricopa and Valley Christian on Thursday while the varsity girls host Miami and Lincoln Prep this Friday in the main gym.

As we inch our way closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, don’t forget your donations to the culinary department for our annual Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Parents and families are invited to join us for a group celebration on campus and a Thanksgiving Feast Wednesday, November 24, starting at 10am. Come and celebrate with us in the courtyard and student union for a nice meal before heading into our Thanksgiving break as the culinary class will cook for the entire school community.
