Dear St. Andrew Parents,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their loved ones and is enjoying the long weekend! For those that are Parishioners and/or those looking for another way to practice our faith, please consider our 40 hours of Devotion. 40 hours starts on Sunday 11/28 and runs to 11/30. For more information please click here. 

 

School Information

  • Happy Thanksgiving from Monsignor
  • Happy Thanksgiving from Archbishop Perez
  • Important Morning Arrival Information
    • Please do not let your children out of the car prior to a staff member arriving to work the crosswalk. A staff member will be outside at 7:50 when the doors open. Busses are pulling in, and this could create a severe safety issue. 
    • We will use the bus lane more often to get cars off of the street, so please look to Mr. Sanchez for direction. 
  • Christmas Festival Information
  • Diaper Drive
    • Saint Andrew will again be collecting diapers and wipes during Advent. We will start the collection on Monday, November 29, and it will finish on 12/20. All Diapers and wipes will be donated to Catholic Social Services in Levittown. 
  • Lost and Found
    • Now that it is colder many students are losing or leaving behind sweaters and jackets. Almost all of them are missing names or labels. Please write your child’s name in their sweaters, jackets, lunchboxes, etc. If it has a name in it, we will return it; otherwise, it may sit in the lost and found and then go into the uniform swap. 
  • Awesome opportunity during 40 hours 11/29 4:45-5:30 with Deacon Javie and Deacon Seng.
  • 1-8 December Lunch Menu
  • Preschool & Kindergarten Lunch Menu

It is a nice way to say thanks for all that they do! If you would like to participate, please send your candy to the attention of Judy Weaver no later than Friday, December 10.
