Tauscher Times 5.18.21

 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Welcome to the last week of school.

It is FINALS week with 8th and 12th grade graduations being held on campus on Wednesday and this Thursday is the last day of school (Half Day “A” Day). We have fun activities planned for the students, including a yearbook signing activity and JH houses meeting for a final time this school year. Please let this also serve as a reminder that San Tan Charter is a low-sugar and nut-free campus, so please keep that in mind for these last few celebratory days.

Thank you to the all families who attended the academics and athletics ceremonies last Saturday. The photos taken by Mr. Dudek can be found on the link below. Use password “STCS2020!” to access”
