The Saint Andrew Home and School Association is dedicated to assisting the pastor, principal,
faculty, and students with their mission to provide quality Catholic education rooted in the Gospel. The dues assist in offsetting the costs of our school assemblies, Catholic School Week fun, and activities throughout the year. In order to continue to offer these no-cost and low-cost events we kindly ask that all families pay the $25-per-family Home and School Association annual membership fee. Payment of these dues will entitle each family to a copy of the Home and School Directory published in the fall.
If you have paid the fee and your directory has not reached you electronically, please contact Melissa DiNofia – Bozzone at email@example.com.
Minute To Win It

Check out these videos for a sneak peek at some of the games being played. Prizes will be awarded to the top three participants. A tie-breaker game will be played if necessary.

JV & Varsity Baseball
Dear St. Andrew 6th and 5th grade families,
As we have done for the past two spring seasons, St. Andrew CYO is looking to field a JV Baseball Team for the 2023 season. However, to do so we will need at least 12 student-athletes to register. As of now, counts are too low for us to field a team.
The CYO JV Baseball League is a competitive league that will complement your son playing in a local in-house league. Practices would be in the early evening (starting around 5:00 p.m.) two to three nights a week, and games would start in early April. Most games are after school, and rides can be coordinated if needed.
If your son is interested in playing, we ask you to consider signing them up. All skill levels are welcome, and the sooner we know if we can field a team we can start practicing.
My name is Jim Pio and I have served as the head coach for the past two seasons and would fulfill that role again this season if we can field a team. I have four students at St. Andrew, and I believe it is important for student-athletes to participate in sports in an effort to help them grow in faith and understanding of their church.
If your son is interested in playing or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jim Pio at email@example.com. Registration is also open online at https://standrew.sportngin.com/. If we are unable to field a team, all registration fees will be returned. We can also work with other local parishes to place players if interested.
Thanks, Jim Pio
