Dear St. Andrew Families,

I hope you had a great week and at least were able to enjoy this week of weather with your children. Attached below is next year’s tentative school calendar for those of you who like to plan ahead.

 

For our current preschool families, you should have received an email from Administration/FACTS today. This email will provide you with directions on registration for next school year. If you do not know your FACTS login, please email Mrs. Wagner at jwagner@standrewcec.com.

 

All families should have received an email from Parish Giving to pay next year’s $100 enrollment/registration fee. If you did not receive this email, please email twenger@standrewcec.com. If your child will not be returning to Saint Andrew, please email Mr. Sikora at rsikora@standrewcec.com. If you have a student at Saint Andrew and are interested in registering another child for next school year, please pay for your current students, and then you will pay for your other new child after they are accepted.

 

New student applications should go live online on Monday, January 29, and will be found on our website application page.

 

Please do not forget students should bring in at least one canned good next week as part of our Catholic Schools Week Food Drive and to participate in the dress down themes listed below.

 

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
