Hello Power Campus!

Here we are—on the countdown to the end of first semester! Reminder that all assignments are due to teachers this Friday, Dec. 10, and semester 1 finals will be on Monday-Tuesday, Dec. 13-14. Initial scores coming in from MAP testing look very positive, so thank you to the teachers, students and families who supported our efforts to help students return to form.

The spring musical is set for Annie! We are pleased to announced we have casted 54 students and staff to participate in this year’s event. Thank you to those who auditioned and congratulations to those who earned their spot. We are very proud of the performing arts programming on campus.

We have begun reenrollment for next year. We have a two-process step for reenrollment. Reenrollment paperwork and Infinite Campus Kiosk will be due by January 14th.

STEP 1:  Please complete the online application for your children (One online application per family).   Infinite Campus KIOSK LINK

Big news coming for school year 2022-23. The organization has planned exciting graduation trips for our 6th, 8th, and 12th grade students. With advanced planning and opportunities for in-school fundraising, we are looking to build community and life-long experiences for our kids who attend San Tan Charter. You should have received an email from Dr. Sippel highlighting these trips, and stay tuned for communications from myself and Principal Laramie on the days to come with more information about our travel plans for our students in SY 2022-23.

Arizona Tax Credit– Donation Opportunity 

The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Charter School. The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs happening on the Power Campus. This year we our increasingly popular theater and performing arts program, our high-flying culinary program, our new tutoring program, and more.  On the health and wellness front, we also added an athletic trainer and strength and conditioning coordinator to our staff to help our students.

The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.
