-WHAT'S NEW AT ST. ANDREW SCHOOL?-

 

ATP OBLIGATIONS:

Race for Education - For all families participating in ATP this year you will be receiving a google sheet from Mrs. Cartwright next week for our annual Race for Education mailing. If you participated last year, your list will have information for review. Please review the list of names and addresses and make any necessary changes. For all new families, your spreadsheet will be blank. Please enter at least the specified number of names and addresses on the sheet. All required names and addresses are due by February, 18, 2022. As a reminder, supplying us with names and addresses is a mandatory requirement for all ATP participating families. The more mailing addresses we have the more successful this fundraiser is for our school. 

Quarterly ATP updates will be coming home in early February. 

 

 

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATIONS:

As we've entered a new calendar year, we begin to prepare for next school year. For all families interested in applying for tuition assistance for the 2022-23 school year, the applications are now open! Financial Aid applications are only accepted online via the new Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) platform and the application deadline for Neumann is March 1, 2022. 

 

HSO NEWS:

  • Thanks to those who joined our HSO meeting on Tuesday night.

  • Trivia Night is scheduled for Saturday, February 19th at 6pm.

  • Our Silent Auction planning is well underway and the HSO is looking for donations we can use as items for the auction. All items must be new and unused. Please contact Marissa Correll at maris327@aol.com for more information or donation suggestions. 

  • The next HSO meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 8th at 6:15 p.m. The meeting will be held virtually and the link will be emailed the day of the meeting.

KOOKIES FOR KINDERGARTEN:

We will once again host our Kookies for Kindergarten Open House which invites incoming kindergarten students and their parents to learn about our school. If you have any family or friends with a child that will turn five before September 1, 2022, please consider sharing the following flyer with them. 

 

 

RE-ENROLLMENT - TUITION COMMITMENT & INTENT TO RETURN:

It's that time of year again! Our 2022-23 enrollment is now open for existing families. All tuition information, including links for family tuition commitment and financial aid application for 2022-23 school year is included in this week's Thursday Folder. Our Intent to Return process for this year is detailed in the Thursday Folder as well.

 

 

REMINDERS:

  • Please be sure that your child has a supply of clean masks in their backpack in case a classroom needs to mask for one reason or another. 

  • Please be sure that your child has a clean water refillable water bottle each day. Our supply of extras in the office is also running low.

WELCOME OUR NEW COUNSELOR:

We are so excited to announce that the LIU has hired a new counselor, Ms. Jena Antonelli, who will be working in the Franklin Co. area and serve our school for the remainder of the school year. 

 

 

WINTER STAR SCORES:

Our students have completed their winter STAR testing in reading and math. While these assessments are not the core focus of our curriculum and teaching, our students are doing very well. Please take a moment to view the breakdown of our scores. We understand that we have a few areas in need of improvement but our staff met last Friday and analyzed scores to help better our instructional practices for the remainder of the school year.
