Tauscher Times 12/16

 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Semester 1 final exams are in full effect and grades are nearly finalized for first semester! As we near the end of 2020, I want to show gratitude to our leadership team and teachers who have displayed exquisite courage and dedication to the profession. By continuing to provide top-level education to both in-person and home-based students while allowing our families school choice, our school community has shown the passion it takes to successfully teach through a pandemic.

As we near the end of the semester, I want to also give a huge shout-out to our kids. When we take time to consider what our students have collectively dealt with this year—given the extreme societal pressures from multiple perspectives and points of view—although they are still growing and learning to persevere in difficult times, I have full faith in our kids to be more reslience coming out as better people because of that challenge (and our response) at San Tan Charter.

Let us stay committed and consistent in returning from break in pursuing the STCS iLead values highlighting our dedication to integrity, Love, empathy, accountability and dedication.


RE-Enrollment Information (2021-22): The goal this year is for all San Tan Charter students re-enroll by the end of December! Having up-to-date enrollment figures helps us in our planning for staffing and programming for the next school year, so please sign-up today!
