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.
Matching from the Heart
We all know about Match -- people finding a date, relationship or marriage online. At Saint Andrew’s we have a different kind of online matching program-
Match for Saint Andrew’s.
Click on it to learn if your company will match your Saint Andrew’s Annual Fund gift. It’s absolutely heavenly that last year Saint Andrew’s received more than $60,000 in matching gifts from over 40 companies. It really makes a difference for our school.
SAVE THE DATE! November 2nd - PAB Science Showcase
Plan now to attend the November PAB meeting on Wednesday, November 2 in the Center. From 8:30am-9:15am, our science teachers - Ms. Peters, Dr. Bloch, and Mr. Zdrojewski - along with students from Lower and Middle School - will share highlights of what they are learning in Science.
We'll bring the coffee
Many families were introduced to our wonderful Saint Andrew's community through a small dessert hour at a neighbor's home -- maybe you were one of them. They are fun and informative. These intimate events are for prospective parents to get together with current families to learn more about our community and your experiences at the school. Would you like to help interested families learn more about the school you love? If you are willing to host a dessert hour at your home some time in December or January, please contact
in the Admission Office.
