 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

As we finish up MAP testing this week, we are planning for ways to help catch up students who may be behind while also building enrichment opportunities for students who are showing a high degree of mastery of content. Before and after-school clubs will be announced over the next few weeks as our MAP scores are finalized and we build around our intervention and enrichment opportunities for students. In the meantime, we have our on-campus events starting on campus such as the Fall Play, Pride and Prejudice, and our athletics “Green and Gold” scrimmage.

Fall Picture Day

Save the date for Tuesday, Aug. 24. It’s fall picture day! We are looking forward to seeing the kids dressed in their best – make sure they also follow our guidelines for appropriate clothing. School photos take place during the day and sports photos will occur that day during practice time.

  • Parents can visit www.dorianstudio.com and type in San Tan Charter School – Power Campus to have access to order online. There is no late order charge if families order within 4 days after picture day.

Fall Photos:

  • Photo ordering forms will be distributed on Wednesday, August 18th during 3rd period classes (this is the same day the Recker Campus will be distributing order forms to their students) On picture day, students will be dismissed by grades over the school intercom and report to the Main Gym for photos
  • The photographers will be onsite to take photos from 8:30am-1:00pm

Fall Sports Photos:

  • Photo order forms will be distributed by coaches on Wednesday, August 18th during sports practices or tryouts
  • Photographers will arrive onsite on Tuesday, August 24th at 2:45pm to begin setting up
  • Dorian Studios will be emailing me the schedule/locations for team photos and when I receive it I will send a follow-up email with that information along with an email to our coaches
