Sippel’s Spotlight 8/4

Happy Friday Roadrunners,

Here we are in the third day of school, congratulations to everyone on everything! It has truly been amazing to see how we have come together as a family so quickly . . . and how about that drive lane, getting better every day; thank you so much for continuing to work with us by having your car card out in the right-hand corner of your window, not getting out of your car, not engaging with the staff as we safely get kiddos in cars, and always using the crosswalk. In addition, the Gilbert P.D. would like for me to remind families that decided to park in the neighborhood during pick up/drop off could be welcomed with a ticket if parked in the no parking zones. I know that the first few days the parking lot gets full, but please use the drive lane or park within our school parking lot.

Would you like to see your kids every day and get paid? Well, we have an opening here at San Tan Charter School:

Guest Teacher – we are in need of guest teachers to fill in when our teaching staff is out ill. If you have been a guest teacher for us in the past, please email me at to get back on the list for this school year. If you are new, please also reach out to me for the appropriate information.

Every Friday is our Roadrunner School Spirit day! Here is your opportunity to get some additional gear for your family. Attached is the information you will need to access our spirit gear website. Please note, all orders will cost $10 for shipping and handling and will be sent to the school where we will have it waiting for you! The website closes Wednesday, August 9th. After that date, all items will be processed and then shipped. Please reach out to Ms. Simonton if you have any further questions

The 2017 Fall Club Catalog will be online next week. Instead of sending home printed club catalogs, we will post the catalog and registration form on the school’s webpage. We will have some hard copies in the office for parents if needed.

Registration for clubs will take place on Monday, August 14th.
