Tauscher Times 12/8

 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Welcome to the week before the week before Winter Break! It has been reminiscent around here of a college “reading week” where classes are wrapping up business before finals week, conducting reviews and make-up MAP testing while pushing for final assignments to be turned in for grading. I have been impressed that San Tan Charter has not been one of the many schools mentioning the high number of students failing many of their classes. Our community continues its resilience and efforts to not settle for or accept excuses because of COVID. Our Roadrunner staff and students have continued working together to support students and I am proud of our work.

Enrollment at the Power Campus has been climbing over the past couple of weeks and if you haven’t seen it already on Facebook or in your email, the re-enrollment portal for school year 2021-22 is open.

Quarter 3 Attendance Survey

Please click on the link below to select your mode of attendance for Quarter 3. Starting in January, families continue to have the choice to attend In-Person five (5) days per week or stay Home-Based for (5) days per week. If you are not requesting a change, your student(s) will remain with their current attendance mode and you do not need to update the survey.

Check your Students’ Grades

With the end of the semester nearing, we are encouraging all of our families to please use Infinite Campus Parent Portal to help monitor their students’ grades. If you are needing help with accessing the portal, please reach out to our registrar Mrs. Gray at cgray@santancs.com.


Student-Student Tutoring Service

San Tan Charter is offering FREE tutoring by the National Honor Society. These free sessions are held both virtually and in-person by request. If you are interested in setting up a tutoring service, please visit the NHS Tutoring Classroom to locate an available tutor. Students must be logged into their San Tan account to access the Tutoring Classroom.


Health Reminder

Thank you to all the families who have kept student(s) home if they are not feeling well and for continuing to support the mask policy on campus. If you are signed up for On-Campus learning but are choosing to keep your children home for the day, please call-in so that we know your students will be working from home. In addition, parents choosing to move their students online for longer periods of time should contact the school to make arrangements.


Nut Policy Reminder

Please remember we are a strict, nut-free campus here at San Tan Charter School. All of our catered hot lunches and snacks on campus are nut free, so please be careful not to unintentionally pack any of these items for your students or to bring them on campus for snacks.



San Tan Charter School does not allow for any form of public displays of affection, or PDA on campus. This includes hand holding, hugging, kissing or showing physical contact between couples. Consequences for PDA range from conferencing with students to contacting parents to suspension from school.


Dress Code

We are having new issues with students choosing to wear pajamas or bring blankets to school because of the change in weather. Although comfortable and appropriate at home, sleepwear is not an acceptable choice for school. Please remind your students to leave pajamas and blankets for the coziness of home.
