Friday News September 9, 2022

Dear St. Andrew Parents,

I hope your children had a great first week of school! It was great to see many of you at last night’s back to school night. Today’s arrival was much better, and dismissal was a little better. Unfortunately, CR canceled two buses this afternoon which caused an extra 40-50 cars to have to pick-up and with training the new first graders up front, it was not as effective as we were hoping. We will stick with the same plan Monday and Tuesday and continue to improve and evaluate.

 

Next Wednesday from 6:30-8:30PM we will have our Back to School Night for grades 6-8.

 

One important note, if you will be using our CARES before or after school program, you do have to register for the program. Please click here for a registration form.  Forms can be returned to the front office via your student or emailed directly to Kas Bowdren at kbowdren@standrewcec.com – Click here for more information.

 

Hope to see you tonight at Movie Night (parking will start at 7:30PM) and some of you tomorrow on the soccer fields.

 

Last but not least, please check out this video message from Monsignor Picard. 

 

Have a great weekend!
