Welcome Hawks!

We have started another school year and looking forward to having the most successful year possible.
I would like to remind all of the students about our SOAR values being: Strive for Excellence; Outstanding Character; Always Safe and Respectful. These are the values that we look for in students and staff. If you follow these values then you will be successful and find a really nice place in San Tan Heights.
Last year, the other parts of those values that we discussed as goals for this year were accenting Kindness and Grit. I would like to review those and why.
In our world today it is very self-centered.  It seems that everyone wants things and satisfaction for themselves and do not really care about others.  You are bombarded by TV and media that reinforces that way of thinking.  For us to have a better world for all we need to resist being negative, judgmental and mean.  The only way to do this is individually being Kind.  Try your best to do kind acts for not just your friends but for others. We want everyone to feel good, safe and valued. Please do your best to counter negative and meanness with kindness.
Secondly, I talked last year and in our first assemblies about Grit. Grit is the ability to handle situations and having the fortitude to continue to do your best without giving up.  Our society seems to want everything but not willing to work for it.  Please take that into consideration in your school work and goals.
Set your goals high and make a plan on how to achieve to your greatest potential. But do not give up if it does not go your way.  People tend to blame others if things go wrong or make excuses. Remember what I said about my father’s generation that came back from fighting in World War 2 and decided collectively to make America great for ALL. They had more reasons to quit and get discouraged than any other generation yet they prevailed. They prevailed because they had GRIT.
So Hawks, set your goals and make you greatest effort to attain them and do not give up but show some Grit. Today make sure you go out of your way to be kind to someone.  It will make you feel good. 

Go Hawks!!

Ms. Katie Hall

I am excited to continue in my role as Assistant Principal for San Tan Heights! Since 2001, I’ve had the privilege of working in Arizona schools, helping students learn and succeed.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education from Arizona State University and was a special education teacher and department chair for six years with Mesa Public Schools. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Bilingual Multicultural Education with a full ESL endorsement. Prior to coming to San Tan Heights, I was a junior high school instructional coach for two years and then worked another three years as a district specialist supporting and coaching teachers new to the profession in preschool through 9th grade at multiple schools.
My teacher leader opportunities in Mesa and consulting jobs with the Arizona Department of Education prompted me to pursue administration and, in 2012, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.
I am proud to be part of the San Tan Heights team as we continue to foster a thirst for learning in our students.
Just watch: the Hawks are Soaring to New Heights!
