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

FINANCIAL AID / SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY:

F&M Trust has EITC scholarship funds available through Commonwealth Management for the 2024-2025 school year for students in grades K-8. Please see the flyer in the Important Papers Folder for application details. Awards are given on a first come first serve basis for those who apply and qualify. 

 

HARRISBURG SENATORS NIGHT:

Join Bishop Senior for an enchanting evening of community and celebration at Faith Night with the Harrisburg Senators. Mark your calendars for June 21st at FNB Field, where you can cheer on your favorite hometown team while supporting a noble cause. With every ticket purchased, you're not only securing your spot for an exciting game but also supporting the work of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Harrisburg. And to top it off, the night will conclude with a spectacular post-game fireworks display — a perfect way to commemorate the 1-year installation of Bishop Senior. Please share the attached flyer with your families. Tickets can be purchased here.

 

HSO NEWS:

Open Positions

Looking to serve our school community? The HSO is looking for four committed individuals wishing to serve as officers (team leader, co-team leader, secretary & treasurer) of our Home & School Organization. We are very grateful for the hard work and dedication of Melissa Krinks, Lisa Skehan, Jamie McKown, and Sarah Stansfield; however, their two-year terms are coming to a close in May. If interested, please reach out to teets.melissa@gmail.com or any of the office staff. 

 

INSTRUMENTAL SHOWCASE:

We have been so grateful to have a full year of extra-curricular music opportunities. Our band, choir, and piano students have been working hard every week and would like to perform in an end of the year showcase for their parents on Wednesday, May 22 at 1:00 PM. An invitation has been included in the Important Papers Folder link above. Piano students will perform a short solo piece. Choir and band students will perform a selection of songs for their families.

The last week for official band, choir and piano lessons will be the week of May 13-17. Students should bring instruments and lesson books to school on Tuesday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 22 so that they can have a dress rehearsal for the showcase.

*THIS EVENT IS FOR STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN BAND, CHOIR, AND PIANO ONLY*

PENNY WARS

Student Council is holding a Penny Wars fundraiser all of next week. Any student that participates get to dress out of uniform on Friday, May 24. Please see the flyer linked above for details.

RACE FOR EDUCATION/FIELD DAY:

Our big day is tomorrow. Please see the information sent home earlier this week for details about tomorrow's events. The information flyer is also linked in the important weekly papers folder. As a reminder, all students should wear their new Race for Education t-shirts, gym shorts and sneakers. A water bottle is also a must. We wish to have many fans cheering us on at the park so please join us if you are able. For any parent wishing to sign their child out of school when we leave the park, please see the main table by the balloon arch to sign-out with Mrs. Salmon.

At this point in the evening, we have well exceeded our $15,000 and hope that we can make it to $20,000 by the end of the race tomorrow. Please continue to share with your families. We are so blessed!
