We are THRILLED to announce that through your generosity, St. Andrew's exceeded our fundraising goal on Giving Tuesday!

We had 105 donors, raised $13,350 for 22-23 Annual Giving, AND we greatly increased our Class Participation Percentages!

Our next goal is for every class to reach 100% Family Participation, so we can unlock the Mary Ann Bendler matching gifts of $850 for every class. We are getting close!


Book Fair - December 5-9
The Korndorffer Book Fair is next week! Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become Bolder, Prouder, and Stronger Readers. AND—as always—every book they buy earns rewards for our School.
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with  eWallet and online shopping:
Please email Anna Johnson to volunteer!
Cardinals in Action

Bluebirds 2 enjoy music and movement during circle time. We also made Christmas wreaths at one of our arts and crafts centers. 

We spotted some reindeer playing with Legos in the PK4 Rainbow Fish classroom! We were definitely cooking up some fun with dramatic play. 
First Grade enjoyed visiting the Kenner Planetarium!
This week in Spanish, we learned about Celia Cruz, the Queen of Salsa, and how she impacted people with her music. We even tried some salsa dancing while listening to her music! Azucar!! (sugar) is one of her famous sayings.
The 6th Grade benefitted from the fossilized shark tooth collection from Tulane University and volunteer grad students who shared their knowledge of feeding evolution mechanisms of sharks. 
Mr. Beverly has started a Middle School Library Club which meets every Monday and Friday during Middle School recess. It’s a time for those students who want to check out books, read, or even study.

Current Bluebirds, Redbirds, and Tadpoles Parents
This is such an exciting time for your family – your children will be transitioning to PK3 Tadpoles or to PK4 next School year. If you haven’t toured yet, now is the time to take a sneak peek at the next grade level for your child! You can schedule online your tour online here. 

Current 4th Grade Parents
Believe it or not, it's time to begin thinking about "Middle School" at St. Andrew's.  The 4th Grade students will have a special 4th Grade visit to Middle School in January. It’s also a great idea for parents to tour as well. It has probably been several years since you first toured, and your focus may not have been on Middle School at that time. Schedule a tour here to take a sneak peek at the Grades 5-8 for your child.
