Dear Andrews Family

Spring has definitely arrived, and not only are the flowers and trees blooming outside, but the students at Andrews are also continuing to grow and flourish! I love to spend time in classrooms, watching our amazing teachers as they instruct and listening to insightful dialogue from students as they collaborate and learn from one another. I can’t wait to see how the remainder of the spring unfolds!

You will notice below that exciting events are quickly approaching here at Andrews – we hope you will choose to participate and look forward to seeing you! I hope that you and your family have a wonderful weekend!
