Taylor & Kaylee Howell!

Hello friends,

Taylor & Kaylee made the transition from public school to a private school in 2020 when Taylor was entering 9th grade and Kaylee was entering 7th.  Both made the transition into Scottsdale Christian Academy (SCA) quite smoothly by becoming actively involved in sport and other activities.

Taylor's involvement includes the SCA Spirit-line who qualified for both state and nationals this year as well as tennis.

Taylor received 10th-grade student of the month for October and Kaylee was just chosen by her teacher earlier this week to represent SCA at the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, which she will be doing in March when her class visits Washington, D.C.


Kaylee played for the MS Varsity volleyball team and won the CCSL championship earlier this fall.  She also plays softball and was recently named best defensive player for the season.  Both have made honor roll each semester while attending SCA.

We learned that Arizona state allows taxpayers to redirect a portion of their taxes to support their communities at no-net-cost to them. This isn't a donation, but taxes we all have to pay anyhow.  We have been redirecting our tax dollars to help other students and would be so grateful if you would consider doing the same to help us lower Taylor and Kaylee's tuition.

You get 100% of it back as a credit; your Arizona tax liability is reduced dollar-for-dollar when you contribute to a school tuition organization like STO4KIDZ.

Your contribution will have a huge impact on our ability to continue to send Taylor and Kaylee to this great school.  The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to our family is PRICELESS! Everyone really does win!  You can redirect your Arizona income tax liability, even if you plan to file for an extension, as long as you contribute by April 15th. You can contribute online here, and STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes.

Note: If you're a non-Arizona resident and would like to make a charitable donation to help us lower our children's tuition,  you can donate here. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible as STO4KIDZ is a 501(c)3, non-profit charitable organization.

If you have any questions, please call either of us. or you can speak directly with the very helpful staff at STO4KIDZ (602-698-8855).

Thank you so much,

Shane & Stefanie Howell
