Schoolwide Day of Service
The Service Learning Day at Saint Andrew’s yesterday was memorable and impactful. The whole school engaged in activities on campus that connected them with our military service men and women, the homeless and the hungry. The students actions and reflections were heartfelt. Perhaps the greatest testaments to the success of the day were the many students who asked if they could do it again, or if they could devote their lunch recess time to do more.
The community launch party for the capital campaign
Imagine the Possibilities
was a fun and festive event yesterday with members of the church and school communities touring the property and hearing from school
and church leadership about this once in a lifetime opportunity. Please check out this link to the informative and inspiring
