Update on T-Shirts 10-12-20

Hello San Tan Scorpions!
We are so excited to be back in person at San Tan. As your PTO we have been working on getting a new design made for our Friday Spirit Day shirts. With the craziness that has come with this school year, we please ask for your patience and understanding.
We love San Tan and want our Spirit Wear to represent our school pride! PTO is working hard to get them designed and ordered. We were really hoping to have them ready this week, but it is taking a little longer than expected. Everyone is anxious to show their school spirit – so continue to wear blue and/or grey and get a sucker!
Thank you! We’ll be posting a picture of the shirts soon!

T-Shirt Order Update


We’ll Be Back Soon

The 2019-2021 PTO met during the 2020 summer break virtually. Here’s our news!

We voted to fulfill teacher wishlist items specifically related to helping them with distance learning. We were able to help out the teachers because of the fundraiser donations received from families in past school years!

We will put everything else on hold until school resumes in-person. We are ready to hit the ground running whenever we are able. In the mean time we wish all of our San Tan community the very best!

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:
