1st Day School Supplies

San Tan is partnering with 1st Day School Supplies Again this year! This is a great way to make school supply shopping hassle free and give back to San Tan at the same time. San Tan received $5 for each school supply kit and we put that money right back into supplies, like paper, for the school. It is also a good way to break up back to school costs since you can purchase your school supply kit now! Supply kits will be available through June 15th. Make sure to choose the kit for the grade level your child will be in for the 2019-2020 school year! To order:
