Halloween Bake Sale: Friday, October 31, 2014

St. Andrew’s is holding its annual Halloween Bake Sale next Friday.  This event is always a big hit with the kids but we need parent involvement to make it a success.  Please email Bonnie Marks at if you are able to bake something  and/or help sell baked goods on October 31.  All treats must be nut free and should be dropped off in the staff room (off the cafeteria) before 9 a.m. on Friday.  Thanks for your support.
