PAB DAD'S CLUB BBQ - Friday, May 13th
Remember how much fun you had at last fall's All School Spaghetti Dinner?  The Dad's Club now invites you to join them for a BBQ dinner!  The Dad's will once again do the cooking as you enjoy an evening with Saint Andrew's friends.  Live music from the SAD (Saint Andrew's Dads) Band will keep the evening lively while you enjoy a great meal of grilled goodies and sides.  There's no cost to you, but we do ask that you bring a small dessert to share.  Please RSVP on iVolunteer TODAY. (Vegetarian and gluten-free items available - please indicate on your response.)
 
Several Dads are still needed to help serve food and to help clean-up.  Volunteer to help via iVolunteer as well.
  
A Saint Andrew's Pioneer
Our 94-year-old neighbor, Amy June Jorgensen, has lived next door at the Rawdon Dell Ranch her whole life. Our students have visited her ranch with Father Cameron and enjoyed seeing the almond orchard, birds, oak trees and barns. Mrs. Jorgensen would like the children of Saint Andrew’s to enjoy her propertyfor many years to come. We are excited to become part of Saratoga pioneer history. Today, we are raising funds to 
purchase Rawdon Dell Ranch for future generations at SaintAndrew's.
 
We need your help to make this dream a reality. Give to the Capital Campaign. Please join in by June 10th. We are grateful for your once in a lifetime support.
Click read more to hear from Amy June herself on the significance of the property to her family.

DATE CHANGE
The Service to School Chapel will be held TOMORROW, May 12th, instead of May 19th.  
The National Junior Honor Society and the Campus Ministry team are co-sponsoring a food drive for Sacred Heart Community Center, one of our service learning sites. Now through Friday the 13th, there are bins in the lobby of the church to bring any food items you wish to donate. The Center does request that only items that can be opened without a can opener (i.e. pop-tops) be donated. This is because many of the homeless that receive the food don't have a can-opener. Thanks very much.  
Middle School Dance May 20th
Seventh grade parents are hosting the final Middle School Dance of the year on Friday, May 20th.  Permission slip and $10 entrance fee are due by 3:00PM May 18th.
