Friday News February 19, 2021

Dear St. Andrew Parents,

I hope you all had a great week! I also hope this is the last week where we are managing days around the weather.

If you missed the news last week, please be sure to check on the bullets below. One notice is regarding Home and School. Every two years our positions come up for nomination and election. We have an incredible team and would not be the school we are without Home and School and the parent support that comes from the organization. If you have any interest in becoming more active, a chair, or board member, please see the information below.

Next week we will be collecting socks for the “Joy of Sox” charity. To kick it off, our students are allowed to wear crazy socks with their gym uniforms on Monday. If we collect 1,000 pairs of socks Monday-Thursday, students will all have a dress down day on Friday, 2/26.

Have a great weekend!
