Good evening STLC families,
It’s hard to believe that we are in our final week of our 2012-2013 school year. I am very proud of all the students for all their accomplishments they have made this year. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your child’s life and educational journey.
Today was a big day on campus with our Kindergarten promotion ceremony starting the day off, and our inaugural 8th grade graduation ceremony rounding out the night. I look forward to seeing our K-7th graders move up to their next grades with our 8th graders moving on to high school. All of our 8th graders will be missed!
Our Spring Music Concert was held this past Monday. Thank you to all who attended to show support for our music program. The kids did a great job with their skits and songs.
Yearbooks are still available! We have a very limited supply left, be sure to get your before the school year ends! Yearbooks may be purchased in the front office for $25 on a first come first served basis.
Family Engagement Committee (FEC) Updates
Thank you to all of our FEC Parent Committee’s. You devote so much time and effort to holding family functions, programs, and nights, such as (but not limited to) family food nights, Barnes and Noble book fair nights, the Golf Tournament, school carnival, Earth Day events, and our first annual Art Walk. I am so thankful to have such a great parent base through parent involvement in the classrooms as well as through our parent committees. Thank you to each and every one of our parents who have given time in any fashion this school year.
Updates from the Roadrunner Committee: School Cents Update
We are pleased to announce that we finished in 6th place out of 20 schools and were awarded a $500 gift card to use at San Tan Village. We will be using the gift card to purchase 36 badminton rackets for the PE program, a digital camera for year book/student council and the rest of the funds will go towards books, games and teaching aids for the classrooms from Barnes & Noble. Thank you to Dick’s, Barns & Noble and Best Buy for providing us with discounts on our purchases.
This was a great fundraising program for us for our first time out, not only did we receive the $500 gift card, we also received $1,019.18 from our Chipotle food night and $388.26 from our Barnes & Noble book fair for a total of $1,907.44. We look forward to participating in the School Cents program again next school year; the program starts up again on August 15.
Thank you to the Roadrunner Committee for hosting this great program for us and thanks to all our families who helped support the program throughout the school year by collecting receipts and coming out to our special events.
Summer Fun with Math and Science!
Students will incorporate using essential math skills while learning about the Earth’s most important substance, water. Students will participate in exploratory learning while using centers, educational games, science experiments and interactive tools to enhance their understanding of mathematical concepts. Students will practice adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, and converting decimals to fractions all while making science connections. In addition to the math/science focus, students will have physical education three days per week with Coach Dickerson. This Summer Program will be offered at our sister school, San Tan Learning Center. See the flyer that is attached: ST_SummerCamp Enrollment Agreement Summer 2013
