Hello Power Campus!

Welcome to picture day! The kids looked great on campus. If you were not able to order your photos beforehand, you can visit www.dorianstudio.com and type in “San Tan Power” for Power Campus students or “San Tan Recker” for Recker students and families will have access to order online.

There is no late order charge for families if you order within 4 days after picture day.

There is big news on campus. Our first home football game of the season is this Friday and it will be a Roadrunners “White Out”. Fans in attendance wearing white will receiving discounted entry and at halftime we will introduce both the Recker and Power Campus Student Council. Friday we will also unveil an original STCS Fight Song and the culinary department will be on hand cooking “street tacos” for the event. Gates open at 6:00pm!

A congratulations is in order to STCS senior Bailey Tischer who was awarded an “Innovator of the Year Award” for last year’s science Fair project. Bailey has been invited to the Governors 2021 Celebration of Innovation event in October and only four (4) teenagers in ALL of Arizona received this honor. This recognition for Baily is the result of years of dedication and focus on academic rigor and study.

Speaking of academic rigor, thank you to the parents and students who signed up to receive extra help in the areas of Math and Reading through our academic recovery plan. Read the below article from Raising Arizona Kids to see what San Tan Charter has done to address academic recovery. I personally want to thank our math and English teachers as well as our superintendent, Dr. Sippel, for all of their investment in making sure our students are grade-level ready.
