Other Notes -

  • School Mass Collection - School Auction



THANK YOU for encouraging your child to do his/her homework - reading at home each school night and practicing math facts appropriate for his/her age. Those who meet their second semester class reading goal will enjoy a picnic at Eisenhower Park with Fr. Peter and Principal Whitehair. Reading to and with your child will help develop important literacy skills. New goals are in place for the second semester. REMINDER - students who attend after school are reading each night and can count those minutes.


PLEASE COME!!! Students and staff will be helping with 10:30 mass THIS Sunday, January 28. We would LOVE TO FILL the pews with as many St. Andrew's Students as possible. Students attending, wearing a uniform, and sitting with our group up front will earn a no uniform coupon. A taco bar will be provided after mass in the school gym.


AUCTION NEWS!!

WE ARE TWO WEEKS AWAY! HELPERS NEEDED before, during and after the auction. Please find a way to share the gifts and talents of your family members in some way to support this important fundraiser. Donations and help count toward stewardship hours.

Auction Committees- https://signup.com/go/wDWixhT



CLASS PROJECTS - Each student is asked to help with their class auction project by sending a small donation to help cover the cost. A donation of $5 - 10 per child is suggested. Any amount above the expense of the class project goes to the auction profit. If this is a financial hardship for your family, even $1 is

appreciated and allows each child to be part

of the classroom project.


Raffle Tickets can be turned in each Friday for a chance at weekly prizes. Can we set a NEW SCHOOL RECORD for sales this year?? More tickets are always available in the tub on the front porch of the school.





RAFFLE WEEKLY First & Second Place winners! Back - Trace Larson, Brody Peterson, Caleb Evans, River Stephens, Front - Blaikley Peterson, Camden Miller Ryken Stephens. Two more weeks to go! Who will be the top seller??


Ticket sales started January 17. Tickets this year are $50 each.


BUTTONS STILL NEEDED for a special all-school art project. Each child & staff member will be represented with a button on our special project. Shades of blue & cream colors are needed. Please send to school if you have any to share. We will also have plenty to choose from if you do not have one at home to send with your child.
