Buddy Lunch is October 19th
We love our Buddies! Each year younger and older students are partnered up as 'buddies.' Buddies meet throughout the year to read together, work on crafts and projects, and just hang out. Our first Buddy Lunch will be a PAB-hosted BBQ during CHARACTER COUNTS! Week on Wednesday, October 19th.
(No need to order lunch nor bring one from home - the PAB is handling everything.)
Buddies will be assigned a color that corresponds with the Six Pillars of Character to wear as part of the special event.
PK with 5A and 5B--Citizenship/purple
KA and 5A--Fairness/orange
KB and 5B-Fairness/orange
1A and 1B with 6B, 6G and 6J--Caring/red
2A and 2B with 6L, and 6M--Trustworthiness/blue
3A with 8B, 8M and 8T--Responsibility/green
3B with 8K, 8S--Responsibility/green
4A and 4B with 7H, 7P, 7S and 7Z--Respect/yellow
Halloween is right around the corner
Halloween is a wonderful and special tradition at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal School. Our purpose on Halloween is to help children share their costumes, learn customs and enjoy the spirit of this time of year.
The students and staff will be coming to school in costume on
Friday, October 28th.
Monday, October 31st will be a regular school day with regular uniform dress.)
It can be a lot of fun for children, as they love to dress up and make believe. However, it can sometimes be frightening for a child to see familiar people dressed so differently.

Living Room Conversations : A workshop for people with opinions

The Living Room Conversation (LRC) vision is a world in which people with fundamental differences of opinion and backgrounds work together with respect — and even joy — to realize the vibrant future we all desire. This summer we held our first Living Room Conversations at Saint Andrew’s and began to help make that vision a reality right here in our own community. We hope that you will join us!
