Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Celebration @ 11:30
Without a doubt, this is my most favorite time of the year, with the weather now cool, I can bring out my sweater collection, which I believe looks great on me. But that aside, this time of year brings family together not only at our homes, but here at school as well. Our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is an annual tradition that started on our very first year. It is great to see just how big it has gotten from that first year when all 50 of us sat around a few tables and enjoyed soup, toast, and popcorn; this year we are expecting over 1000 “family” members to join us for dessert and Paradise Bakery. Whatever your family tradition is, cheers to you and your family from the Sippel family!
Thank you everyone who came out to the Catching Fire movie night, we raised $467 dollars with this event and money will go towards Growing Brilliance. We also earned 9400 School Cents points. Thanks to our Roadrunner Committee who put on this event. Don’t forget to get your tickets for Frozen in the front office; the movie will be December 2nd.
The winter concert is fast approaching so we wanted you to be aware of some important changes this year.
The concert is at a new location and on a different day than the school calendar originally stated. It will be on Thursday, December 5 at 6:00 pm at the Higley Center for the Performing Arts. The Center is located at 4132 E. Pecos Road, Gilbert. Art Masterpiece is also using this venue as a platform for showcasing artwork. The lobby doors will open at 5:20 for your viewing pleasure.
The students need to be at their assigned waiting areas by 5:40. There will be signs pointing the way and the teachers will be at the waiting area prepared for your students’ arrival. We are excited for this venue change as it allows for you and your family to stay and enjoy the entire concert. With the exception of kindergarten, each class will stay with their teacher after their part in the concert. We have reserved the back part of the auditorium for your student to enjoy the rest of the performance. If you have a kindergartener, please be prepared to pick them up at the front of the auditorium after their performance so that they may enjoy the rest of the concert while sitting with you.
The concert is expected to be 75-90 minutes long and after the concert is over your child will remain with their class in the reserved seats until you pick them up. Please have your child wear nice festive attire such as a nice dress, skirt and blouse, button down shirt and slacks, or suit. Thank you for your support of the music program at STLC and we look forward to seeing you at the concert!
The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Learning Center. The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Learning Center such as Music Education, which each student participates in multiple times a week, and Physical Education, in which students participate in daily. It also provides weekly Library time for our students. The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.
