Dear Andrews Family

Another week of wonderful teaching and learning has come to a close at Andrews! I enjoyed seeing many of you at the PTA General Meeting and musical performance last evening. Moreover, I was impressed by the amazing talent of our first graders and appreciate the time and efforts of our music teachers and the first grade teaching team in preparation for this event. I hope you and your family have a fabulous weekend!
