St. Andrew's Standardized Testing for Grades 2-8
DATES: March 20, 21, 22, 27, and 28 from 8AM until 11AM

Please make sure your child is in school on time each day. It is important that they get a good night of sleep and eat a high protein breakfast each day. Also, we ask that you do not schedule any appointments during these times.
Lost and Found Alert! 
Attention Parents and Students--Faced with an enormous supply of Lost and Found items (shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, sweaters, and more!), Coach KJ  will be putting all of the Lost and Found items on display during PE next week on Monday, 3/20 and Tuesday, 3/21 for the students to reclaim their belongings. The School is making a donation of all unclaimed Lost and Found items on Monday, March 27.  
Is it the luck of the Irish or the luck of the Cardinals that led us to a successful Cardinals on the Run fundraiser? St. Andrew's is lucky to have YOU as a supporter!

Thanks to the generosity of our entire community, our Cardinals had a fantastic time during the Fun Run on Wednesday, March 15!

We will continue to accept donations until midnight on St. Patrick's Day - every dollar we raise helps our school achieve excellence! 

Here is the link to make a donation to St. Andrew's:

If you would like to donate to a specific student, please reach out to that student's parents for their personal donation link.

Cardinals in Action

The Bluebirds 2 class made Leprechauns using orange and green paint, paper plates, and ripped up paper.

The PK-4 Rainbow Fish 1 students made a leprechaun trap for St. Patrick's Day and had fun at Cardinals on the Run!

The PK-4 Rainbow Fish 2 class had fun finding missing numbers between 1-100 and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

First Grade really enjoyed building their own animal float dioramas based on their chosen habitats.

In Spanish class this week, our PK-4 Rainbow Fish continued reading Aventura con Remy (Adventures with Remy), and they painted their ballena (whale)!

Sixth Graders assisted with painting their set in preparation for their play production, The Amazing Race: Teenage Edition. Meanwhile in Science class, students used models to demonstrate the differences between eclipses and lunar phases. 

From the Admissions Office

Re-enrollment is very important in planning for the following school year.  If you have not re-enrolled yet please do so as soon as possible.  We began offering spots to new families who have applied for the 2023-24 school year and we want to make sure your child’s spot is secured.

New Applications
We are still accepting new applications for the 2023-24 school year. 
As current parents, you can tell the great story of St. Andrew’s better than anyone.  Please continue to spread the good news of our school community to friends near and far.  If you know any applicant families, please encourage them to choose St. Andrew’s.
