What a Week!  

It has been a great week at St. Andrew’s Middle School. We feel so fortunate to be working with your children. We are already all so impressed by the students!

It is exciting to be a part of the first year of this Middle School. Having 2/3rds of our student population as new to the school will give us a real opportunity to build a strong community. We are so glad you are all a part of St. Andrew’s.

 

Welcome Back Coffee Dear Parents,

Lunch at St. Andrew’s

Our cafeteria is up and running! Food is available for purchase during the students’ break time, from 10:32am-10:47am and it is available from 11:37am-12:37pm, during the lunch hour.

Items range in price, with a ‘meal deal’ priced at $6.00.

Please note the cafeteria does not accept bills larger than $20, and the school office does not have cash on hand to make change.

If your child purchases a meal or snack item from the cafeteria that requires cutlery, the child will be given cutlery with their food. If you are sending your child with a lunch packed at home please pack cutlery for them as well. The servery will charge a student for cutlery if they are bringing their own meal from home.

If your child is in Grade 6 and you would like them to be released from school on a daily basis at lunch time, please have your child check in at the office to pick up a form. We ask that you fill out the form and have it returned to the office. If you hope to allow your child to leave the school from time to time we ask that you write and sign a note to be sent with your child each day that you allow them to leave the school for lunch.
