St. Andrew's News, March 1, 2024

Updated: Mar 20



What a FUN DAY! We celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday with a reading celebration and green eggs and ham for lunch. We also celebrated LEAP Day by hunting for mini frogs. Students were challenged to do one good deed for each frog they found.

Great Day for Up!

Thank you, Fr. Peter, for reading this fun Dr. Seuss book to us yesterday!

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.
