Families and Community Members, Here is the shirt design for the 5K Spooky Sprint this year. The shirts will be orange and the design and wording will be made with glow-in-the-dark ink... If you are not able to participate but still would like a shirt, they are available for $15 (Please indicate - just a shirt on your form). I am also including the registration form which is due on September 26th (just in case you don't receive one or need another). Hope to see you there!! Andrew Parent Lighthouse Team
Parents and Guardians, Two things are coming home today with your students. The first item is a Red Wheel Fundraiser Packet. Students in K-6 will be bringing these home to try to raise funds for the kids to do fun stuff throughout the year. In the past we have taken the students to the skate park, gone to the Voy Theatre, etc. The other item coming home is the signup for the 5K run. This year it is called the Spooky Sprint. The shirt design will be shared once we have that from the designer.
LEAP will be going to Little Bear Park in Maquoketa today. We will return around 5:20.

Here are a couple of photos from our flag-raising ceremony yesterday. For those new to Andrew, this is a tradition we do on the first day of school. The flag gets raised, a staff member sings the national anthem, and then we all do the Pledge of Allegiance. Look this year we even got our construction guys to join us!!
Andrew Families, We have LEAP signup forms in the office if have not received one yet and would like to sign your child up. You will notice there is also our Behavior System for you to go over with your child and sign to acknowledge you both understand the LEAP behavior policy. You can also print them off here if you prefer as well. Please turn the forms in to Jackie Delaney, our LEAP Coordinator.
Andrew Families, The Back to School signs are up and ready for your 2023-2024 first-day-of-school pictures. Make sure to get your pictures in the morning because we will take down the signs in the late morning. We will put them back up Sunday evening for the preschool student's 1st day on Monday. Happy 1st Day of School!!
Andrew Families & Community Members, This afternoon we discovered a gas leak on the exterior of the building on the south side of the school. We immediately called Black Hills Energy. They responded quickly and were able to diagnose the problem. They shut off the gas to the building for tomorrow so they can get the needed parts to fix the problem. This will only affect the stove (which we do not need tomorrow) and the hot water heater. We will have school as scheduled. Remember tomorrow is a 1:30 dismissal. If you have any questions please feel free to call the school at 563.672.3221 or email Mr. Kirchhoff at email@example.com.
Andrew Families, Due to the extra time it will take for the middle/high school shuttles to return to Andrew this year, the afternoon buses will be about 10-15 minutes later than last year. We wanted to give you a heads-up so you weren't worried about where your children were at. If you have any questions please contact Jason James at 563.672.3221 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Andrew Families, We just wanted to remind you that school starts tomorrow, Aug. 23, 2023. Tomorrow (Aug. 23) and Thursday, Aug. 24 will both be 1:30 early outs and we do not have LEAP before or after school. See you all tomorrow!!
Families, Remember we are having our Andrew Night at the drive-in tonight!! The gate opens at 6:30. Come to see staff, families, and friends and enjoy a movie to cap off the night!! See you at the movies, Andrew Staff
18th Annual Cards For Kids
Today, LEAP learned about fiber and made bowls with Jenna Stevens. We then made homemade pop tarts. Yummy!
Andrew Families, Due to the construction at the school, we are going to cancel our Unpack the Backpack night for tomorrow night. As much as we wanted everything to be done by now, the delays in the delivery of some HVAC equipment have caused some setbacks. We are fortunate that we have the classroom A/C units and the workers believe they will get those up and running before the start of school. That is great news because if you have been paying attention to the weather, experts anticipate the first day to be somewhere between 93-103 degrees. We will still have our event at the Drive-in tomorrow evening and we hope to see you all there. You can enter the drive-in at 6:30. We encourage families to come as soon as you are able so you can interact with families and staff before the movie. We will have yard games set up for all to play, as well as, the other activities out at the drive-in to do. Unfortunately, the train is broken right now, but there are other fun things to do. As you enter, please stop at the gate to get your coupon for a free large tub of popcorn for your family (from the Parent Lighthouse Team). Please come out and join us for fun and a movie!!
