What a great week back it has been! It has been so great to see all of our students back and engaged in their learning. It sounds like everyone is refreshed after some great family time over the break.
We are very excited for Monday evening! Our Open House for new St. Andrew’s families and students is this Monday, January 14th at 7pm. We look forward to sharing all that is amazing about St. Andrew’s!
We are so thankful for our current students who are taking on leadership roles to make this night a success.
The Red Maple extravaganza has begun! It was incredible to see so many students line up for their new reads. You’ll be sure to see your children’s noses buried in a book this weekend.
We met in our Activity Day groups this afternoon. Permission forms have gone home and we look forward to receiving them in return early next week.
If you’re child would still like to sign up for Choose Your Own Adventure, the cost is $15 and that money can be brought into the school on Monday. Please see us in the office!
Our next School Council meeting is on January 22nd, at 6:15pm. All parents are welcome! Please note the date change.
