 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We are thankful for so many things here at San Tan Charter, most notably our kids and the wonderful programs and people that make us the school of choice. Just today we received news that we have earned over $600,000 in academic scholarship money for our senior class, which is over $300,000 more than what we had earned last week!

As academics are on the top of our mind, when we return after the break we will be conducting our MAP Testing. This year as we have addressed the learning loss that occurred during the pandemic, and our teachers and students have partnered in the classroom and in tutoring. Over the next two weeks the kids will be showing us what they’ve learned, and we are excited to see how we have progressed.

Heading into Thanksgiving break, tomorrow is our annual Charlie Brown Thanksgiving event. Thank you for the incredible generosity you have shown us in food donations to our culinary team. Please join us tomorrow for our feast starting at 10am. Families are welcome to come and celebrate with us in the courtyard and student union for a nice meal before heading into the long weekend, prepared by Mr. Ramos and our culinary department.
