 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

You heard me say it all last year and the now the East Valley agrees! San Tan Charter School has been named “Best School” in the East Valley by BeLocal. Our school receives this distinction in a year that it also gained its 20-year charter renewal and has grown in enrollment for its second-consecutive year. I am proud to announce that our school and our community has been recognized for the incredible work we are doing.

Spring Musical

This week over 60 members of the Annie cast and crew prepare for our spring musical! All performances are sold out with opening night this Thursday at 7:00pm. Thank you to Ms. McQuaid and all the community that showed up this weekend to load-in our sets, and to Plexus Technology team and the Arizona Opera for setting up our brand-new stage lighting and sound system for this season’s production.

Senior and 8th Grade Trip

Also, on tap this week is the Senior trip to Universal Studios GradBash. The San Tan caravan leaves Friday, May 13, at 7:00am. Also, next Monday, May 16, is our 8th grade trip to Sunsplash.
