WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS

Date: February 2, 2023

​​​​​

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

CAR MAGNETS

We are selling SACS car magnets! The cost is $6 per magnet. We only have a limited number available so get your orders in early. This is such a great and inexpensive way to help market our school to families of the community. Order forms and payment due by 2/17 or until all magnets have been sold. A paper order form is coming home today but you may also find it attached in the Important Weekly Papers link.

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION

All families will be required to complete the Financial Aid Assessment for the upcoming 2023-24 school year. The application is completed in STS and will be opened on February 1st. All applications are due by March 1st. The application cost will be covered by the school for every family. More information will be coming in future weeks regarding this financial assessment and how our EITC funds will benefit every family. 

 

HSO NEWS

The next HSO meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 14 at 6:15 PM. 

​                                                                            

 

INTENT TO RETURN - ENROLLMENT 2023-24

We are preparing for 2023-24 school year enrollment. With the assistance of RedefinED Advisors this year we are restructuring our tuition rates to better suit families. Tuition rates will be published in February this year. Please know we are working to keep tuition cost increases to a minimum even during our current times. 

On February 1st your STS account will be billed a non-refundable $100 placement fee. If you plan to return there is nothing you need to do at this time. If you plan to withdrawal for the 2023-24 school year you must notify us in writing prior to February 24th. If the school office doesn't receive written notice by the 24th of February your $100 remains non-refundable. 

 

 

JUMP ROPE FOR HEART

All forms and collected money should be submitted to the office by tomorrow, Friday, February 3.

NEW COUNSELOR

We are very excited to welcome our new counselor, Mrs. Kelly Fortney. Her services are provided to our students from the Lincoln Intermediate Unit #12. She will be at St. Andrew 2-3 days per week to provide both individual and classroom guidance services. Attached is her introduction letter along with information on her "Lunch Bunch."

 

 

NEWS FROM OUR SPECIALS

ART- Students have been working on completing pieces to submit for the Square1 Art fundraiser. Information on how to order will come home to parents in early March

 

LIBRARY- The spring Book Fair is right around the corner. It is scheduled for February 24- March 3.   Our goal is to sell 500 books. If interested in earning some volunteer hours for ATP, please sign up here. Mrs. Tylicki depends on volunteers to make this fundraiser a success for our library.

MUSIC-With the absence of a music teacher this year, we have purchased an online music program called Quaver Music to assist with teaching our students the fundamentals in our music curriculum. The kids have completed week 2 and are enjoying the features of the program. 

 

VIRTUAL EITC MEETINGS

RedefinED Advisors are hosting a number of zooms in the coming weeks for any family member, parishioner, community member and business who wishes to learn more about how to direct your tax dollars to our school. Last year we received a pledge from about 25 families that totaled close $60,000. These funds will come directly to our school in the form of scholarship money that will benefit EVERY student for the 23-24 school year. So if you are interested in making a pledge to support our school through the tax dollars that you already pay, plan to join one of the zoom calls. 

 

WEATHER RELATED DELAYS & CLOSINGS

Now that we are headed into colder weather which brings us snow and ice, we thought it was a good time to review our plan for weather related emergency delays and closures. For information about school closings or delays, you may consult the school website and social media pages. Additionally, every family member in our system will receive a phone/text/email message from our emergency notification system. Parents are asked not to call the rectory or school. Saint Andrew School is included with the Waynesboro Area School District and may not be announced separately so if you can't find our announcement, we will follow the WASD announcement.

In the event that we have a two-hour delay, ALL students must pack a lunch.
