Thank you for a successful info session!

standrewsnight

Thank you for a successful grade 8 Quebec trip information night! Last year, we had about 10 families attend, this year our cafeteria was nearly full. We were glad to see many of our students out tonight so that they can have informed conversations with parents and bring more of their questions to the student follow-up meeting tomorrow. A special thank you to Mr. Della-Schiava and EduTravel for leading the session!

Grade 8 Information Night

A quick reminder to families of Grade 8 students…

Tonight there will be a meeting held by EduTravel about the Grade 8 Graduation Excursion. Our hope is that all Grade 8 students attend.

Come to the Cafeteria tonight for 6:30pm and hear about the amazing experience the children will have. Bring your questions and enthusiasm!

St. Andrew’s Band

We are beaming with pride at St. Andrew’s today! Our marching band lit up the roads of Vaughan with cheer today! We are so proud of all of you! A HUGE thank you to Mr. Corbett and the parent volunteers who made today possible!

See You at School Council!

We need your help! Please join us on Tuesday, at St. Andrew’s Middle School for our School Council Meeting! We will be meeting at 9am on Tuesday and we want to see you there.

On Tuesday, we will be brainstorming a fundraising action plan! We have a big project in mind and we want you involved.

We are fortunate enough to  be partnering with the TDSB in building a great performance space in the school cafeteria. To get the most out of this partnership we would love to hear from  you and get some ideas in motion!

Parents & Guardians, please bring your ideas and your enthusiasm to the table on Tuesday! See you at 9am!

St. Andrew’s Day

Happy St. Andrew’s Day to all! This morning we held an incredible assembly! What a great way to start off the day!

We learned about the History, and Traditions of St. Andrew’s. We heard from Mr. Millar as he showcased the playing of the bagpipes and sat fascinated by our very own Band! We learned of our Scottish roots and celebrated being the first year of this brand new school! St. Andrew’s Middle School we are writing your story and it is going to be the best story yet!

 This past week the Grade 7s took part in a Drama Showcase. A variety of students from different classes, in Grade 7, performed tableaux and scenes from different Fairy Tales. Bravo on owning that stage!
