Friday News April 29, 2022

Dear St. Andrew Parents,

 I hope you all had a wonderful week. It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the third trimester. There are many events coming up as we begin to wrap up the year. One of the events is our First Holy Communion for our second graders. Please keep them in your prayers as they receive the Eucharist for the first time today! 

 Also, if you do not have plans next Friday night, please consider cheering on and supporting teachers everywhere including our own Miss Peggy Whelan at the Phillies ballpark. Miss Whelan will be one of 10 “All-Star” teachers recognized by the Phillies. To honor her and all of our great teachers we are asking our students to wear Phillies shirts or red on Friday, May 6.

 

Saint A tip of the week:

  • Every Friday moving forward, students may wear their Blue Ribbon T-Shirt with their school uniform shorts, pants, skorts, jumpers. This Friday they may wear the shirts or their Phillies gear/red (see above). 

 Have a great weekend!
