 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

There are just three weeks left until the end of the school year!

This week we will finish MAP testing. We’ve made tremendous strides this year and are very proud of our kid’s efforts with testing! Parents, take some credit for that work as I believe our success is in large part a reflection of the high standards being supported at home.

Thank you to all the families who helped to “spoil our teachers” for Teacher Appreciation last week with meal donations. We’ve had great support all year from families who are contributing to make San Tan Charter a wonderful place to work and be a student.

Next year there are no plans to slow down or rest on our successes—there are plans in place to not only make our school the “Best Small School in the East Valley” but we have our sights being set on being the “Best Small School in Arizona”. We will not be able to accomplish those big dreams without you and our students’ continued high standards.

Lastly, let’s hear it for last Saturday night’s 2023 prom. The kids looked amazing and were dancing away – many stayed until the end of the event—enjoying themselves. Congratulations to our Senior Prom King and Queen, Mr. Chris Johnson and Ms. McKenzie Hennessey!

Academic/Spring Sports Awards Night – May 17


Join us for our end of the year academic and spring sports awards on May 17. We will be in the Power Main gym with the Recker Campus students kicking off the evening starting at 4:30pm, followed by the Power Campus awards at 6:00pm and finally the Spring Sports awards at 7pm.


This is a great opportunity to show your support for the hard work your students have put into their academics and schooling this year.

Senior Breakfast

Help us celebrate the Class of 2023 at our “San Tan Senior Breakfast”.  As a way to bid farewell to our seniors and their families, we want to let them know one last time that they are and will always will be Roadrunners.

The event will take place at the Power Campus on May 26th.  Breakfast will be served at 9:30am (seniors first, of course) and is open to the entire campus and families.  In order to ensure the event’s success, we are requesting your support in the form of food donations.

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up.   We ask that all donations be received no later than May 23rd.  This will allow the culinary program to inventory the ingredients and, if needed, have the school make the necessary purchases.

2023-24 School Supplies

It’s never too early to be prepared! San Tan is kicking off its annual back-to-school fundraiser that will save you money while making your life easier!  Pre-order your child’s school supplies now and they will magically arrive in your child’s classroom at the Meet the Teacher Night!
Pre-Order & Pay online @ SanTanGiftedCommunity.org.

The fundraiser contains ALL personal and classroom supplies on the teacher’s supply list for next year.
**Fundraiser does not include reusable items, such as backpack, lunch box, Chromebooks, PE uniforms, calculators, and magazine subscriptions.

Tax Credit Giving

San Tan Charter is well on its way of reaching our goal of $100,000.00. To continue with this gracious giving, please read below as there is still time to donate.

The form link is now open to donate:


With your support, we can continue to provide the programs outlined below:

  • Junior High and High School Culinary Arts: Restaurant quality cutlery, pots/pans, additional shelving, and supplies for the classroom
  • Full-Day Kindergarten Scholarship
  • Funding for the Library/Media Space
  • Health Care Supplies
  • Playground Equipment

In addition, our Montessori Preschool School gives out around $45,000.00 a year in scholarship to those families in need, we are able to offer these scholarships because of the Arizona School tax credit program. 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. You do not have to have a child at the school to pledge, you must only be an AZ State resident paying AZ State taxes.
