    Dear San Tan Elementary Families,

    I am looking forward to another great year at San Tan Elementary. This is my fourth year as the principal and our staff and students have done some great things over the years. We will begin our third year in the journey of utilizing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People framework at our school. San Tan Elementary is a Leader in Me School that uses the language of the 7 Habits throughout the educational experience.

    The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey's whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. We believe that having common language across our K-6 system will make us an even better school. We have so many great students, families, and staff members that are committed to growing every day to make San Tan Elementary the best school to learn and teach in Arizona. If you are interested in more information about this exciting journey, feel free to visit www.theleaderinme.org.
    Everyday we strive to provide a meaningful educational experience to our Scorpions. Our mission is to Unite, Learn, Lead, and Inspire. We believe that with your support and partnership, anything is possible. Our PTO and Site Council are dedicated to provide opportunities and resources for our community, students, staff, and families to be engaged in the San Tan experience.  We hope that this year you will choose to be involved in some aspect of our school to enhance the programs and services for our children. Let’s make this a Great year for your child!  If you have any questions or ideas and want to share with the Administrative team, feel free to contact the front office to schedule a meeting.
