Dear St. Andrew Parents,

I hope you had a great week! What a fun time to be a Philly sports fan, even a bandwagon one like me! If you’re not a fan, I hope, at least, you appreciate the excitement in the air. 

Please check out the information below, including information on our  Halloween Dress Down, signing up for conferences, and Veterans Day. 

Go Phils! 

Have a great weekend, and we hope to see you at Trunk or Treat tomorrow!
