Dear St. Andrew Parents,

Hard to believe we are already into October. Here is an important message from Monsignor. Please click now and come back to read the rest when you are done. 

 

Congratulations to our new Student Council representatives and NJHS members. We are proud of them, and we look forward to working with them this year. 

 

CYO Basketball and Cheerleading registration close this weekend on Sunday, October 3. Don’t miss the opportunity to sign up. This is a great opportunity to keep your kids busy, make new friends, and continue to grow in character while participating in something family-oriented that they are likely to enjoy!
