Happy Halloween Roadrunners,

Thank you to all of the families for not sending kiddos to school today in costume or with candy and sweets, this helps us keep our learning environment going. Thank you to the Roadrunner community for participating in our first Learning Celebration of the school year. It was great to see everyone on campus and we sure had some great projects and presentations to enjoy. Learning Celebrations are just one thing that makes San Tan a special place for my family to attend.

Gifted Parent Night @ San Tan presents Speed Gifting!  November 1st, 5:30 to 7:30p.m. With an interesting twist on the speed dating concept, our Speed Gifting evening will offer an array of high interest topics specifically designed to help answer gifted parenting questions.  You will travel as a small discussion group between the various topics to receive a personalized learning experience where your questions will be individually addressed. Topics include ‘What exactly is gifted?’, ‘Why does my child have so much anxiety?’, ‘Why does my child do the crazy things they do?’, ‘How can I assist or enrich my child from home?’, and much more!

Children under the age of 10 are welcome to attend childcare for $5 (cash only) up front. Please RSVP to assist us in providing enough materials.

The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Charter School. The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Charter School such as Music Education, which each student participates in and Physical Education, in which students participate in daily. It also provides weekly Library time for our students. 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. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.
