    Dear San Tan Elementary Families,

    I am excited to start my fifth year at San Tan!  We all have done some great things the past four years and I am very proud of our students, staff, and community for all we have accomplished.  We will celebrate the great things we have done and reflect and refine areas we can grow.    San Tan is a Leader in Me School on a journey of utilizing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People framework at school and home.

    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 on an ongoing basis.  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 ever have any questions, ideas, or concerns, please contact the front office.  Thank you for your support!
