Dear St. Andrew Parents,

We had a great Catholic Schools Week! I hope your week was great too!  Thank you for your support and for spreading the good word of Saint Andrew. We saw twice the number of potential new families as we typically see at our open house despite the weather. We had great Spelling Bee competitions, fun-filled Bingo, Family Feud game shows, a great volleyball game, and a beautiful Mass. 

 

A special thanks to our Catholic Schools Week Chair, Ms. Whelan, and the committee for all of their help and organization to make this happen! 

 

If you did not see this on social media, please check out this message from the Archbishop and OCE. 

 

Thanks, and have a great weekend.
