Dear St. Andrew Parents,

What a great week! We had a bunch of fun with our Spring Concert/Gallery Walk, Spirit Days, and Crusader Dash. Thank you to all of those that helped make these great events and those who donated their time, talent, and treasure especially Mr. Rumph (Band), Mr. Mynyk (Orchestra), Ms. Wiltbank (Music), and Ms. DeGraw (Art) for all of their work with the concert and art gallery. Thank you to the Moms’ Booster Club, especially Mrs. Dharte, Mrs. Dougherty, and Mrs. Powell, and our gym teacher, Mr. Carlin for the great Crusader Dash and spirit day. Congratulations to the Teal room and KF3 for being the top earning classes in the Crusader Dash this year! 

 

Finals are slowly approaching for our older students, so please be on the lookout for information from our teachers. 

 

Yearbooks were distributed today to those that ordered one. We have about 20 remaining yearbooks. If you would like to purchase one, please contact Ms. Demsko at ddemsko@standrewecec.com. Yearbooks cost $35.00 and will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

 

I hope you enjoy the 3-day weekend but also spend some time with your loved ones remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice like Bucks County’s own Travis Manion who attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel, La Salle College High School, and the Naval Academy. May God continue to look after their families, and God Bless you all and our Freedom!
