Dear St. Andrew's Community,
Wishing you peace, joy, love, and happiness this holiday season. It is truly an honor to serve this community and pure joy to spend each day with your children. May God bless you today and always. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Cardinals in Action
The Bluebirds 1 were busy doing Christmas crafts and learning about the color RED this week. They decorated their Christmas photo frames and enjoyed bowling 🎳. 
The Redbirds 1 class had fun making Christmas ornaments and doing puzzles.
Tadpoles 1 learned about Hanukkah this week, and they practiced writing their names.
Our students are drawing insect designs in Art class.
Basketball season is underway! Go Cardinals!
As part of our energy unit in science, the Fourth Graders recently constructed solar ovens and baked s’mores.
Thank you so much for those of you who donated toward our holiday food drive. We boxed and delivered the food to St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Harvey this week. We collected 60 cubic feet of food which will serve about 60 families this month. This type of activity is another visible example of our community and underscores our Episcopal Identity. We give because so much has been given to us. 

This Saturday, December 17, I will be at St. Mark's ( 3245 Manhattan Blvd, Harvey, LA 70058 ) helping to load cars from 11 am to 1 pm. If you would like to stop by to help us out, please let me know. It is a great lesson for the kids to see what their work accomplishes and moves us from the theoretical to the practical.
God Bless each of you and your familes during this most holy season of the year. May the light of Christ shine brightly in your homes during the remaining of Advent and through Christmastide! St Andrew, Pray for us!
