During these times the school will be closed with no additional child care.


Teacher Appreciation Dinner – In preparation for late night conferences on Thursday, October 5th and to thank our staff for all of the work they do, we are asking our amazing parents to help donate food to give our staff the extra love and support for conferences. The theme will be a Mexican with a Taco Bar. Please have all items ready (cooked) to go and to the front office by 4:00 PM because our staff will eat dinner at 4:30 PM. We greatly appreciate all of your love and help.


Looking for a fun camp for your Kinder-5th grade student on our three half days coming up? We have an option! Have your student attend our Basketball camp Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday October 4th-6th from 12-3pm. They will be given time to eat lunch, change, and get ready for a fun afternoon of basketball. See the attached registration flyer and sign up in the office. Questions? Please reach out to Ms. Simonton


San Tan Charter School is happy to provide a Flu Clinic on Thursday, October 5th, in our Conference Room starting at 5:00 and concluding at 7:00. All insurance cards are accepted. Otherwise, each vaccination is $32. Payment by check or cash only. Children 7 years and older may get vaccinated while accompanied by an adult.


10/3 – “Pink Out” Day – Our entire school will be wearing pink along with the Lady Roadrunners volleyball players in support of breast cancer awareness month.  Stay after school and wear your pink to their “Dig Pink” games at 4:30 p.m. (Junior High) and 6:00 (Varsity). We will have food, raffles and prizes. Admission is $1 for all students wearing pink. All proceeds from this night go to breast cancer education, awareness and treatment.


Our Annual Paper Drive is starting to come to an end, because of this great drive San Tan has never had to spend funds to buy paper thanks to all of our families! The front office will be keeping track of reams of paper brought in for each teacher, point values are assigned below;

White Ream of Paper =1

Colored Paper = 2

Colored Cardstock = 5

Current Ranking

Please drop off reams of paper with your teacher’s name on it; the winning class will receive a pizza party and a $250.00 school supply gift card. I will keep everyone in the loop as to how the classes are doing in my spotlight.


Please remember to print your student’s first and last name on clothing, lunch boxes and water bottles that come to school so misplaced items can be returned to your student.
