Friday News April 1, 2022

Dear St. Andrew Parents,

Hope you had a great week! To learn a little more about our Mother’s Day Soiree (online auction) and how you could support the event, please click here. 

 

Next Friday, April 8, we will have a $1 Blue and Gold dress down day to support the people of Ukraine. All proceeds will be donated to an organization helping the people of Ukraine in the Ukraine or groups helping to support Ukrainian refugees. Next Friday will also be the last day of our collection to send goods to Ukraine. Thank you for your support, and please continue to pray for peace in the world, Ukraine and any other community that suffers from oppression such as Afghanistan including the people doing their best to protect them. 

 

Summer uniforms begin this Monday, April 4. Students may continue to wear sweaters and pants, but they are no longer required. Last but not least, a kind teacher shared with us that if you look to the eastern sky just before dawn on Monday and Tuesday, Venus, Saturn, and Mars should be visible and may remind us of the Holy Trinity in our lives as we approach Easter.

 

Saint A tip of the week:

  • Super Dollars are gift certificates, distributed by both local shops and restaurants and large national chains. When you purchase gift cards and gift certificates at face value, you will receive a tuition credit receipt for 4% of your total purchase, so if you buy $100.00 in gift certificates, you get $4 off your tuition.  Super Dollar Order Form

 

 Have a great weekend!

    • This summer, five St. Andrew alumni from the Class of 2019 will be traveling to multiple areas of the country as part of summer service trips sponsored by La Salle College High School. They will be working with local organizations, many involving children, poor, and/or the homeless population. These trips are a once in a lifetime opportunity for the La Salle students to make a marked impact on the lives they touch. These trips are not possible without the financial and prayerful support of those who share in the desire to serve others. Each student is responsible, through a variety of coordinated fundraising efforts, to secure funds for their trips. If you are in a position to support our trips with a tax-deductible donation made to La Salle College High School, you can donate online by visiting www.lschs.org/summerservice and clicking on the “Donate Now” link. Please indicate “Student” as St. Andrew alum. Please include us and our fellow La Salle students in your prayers as well. We appreciate all the support from the St. Andrew community!
