Back-to-School Blessing – and Ice Cream Truck! Saturday, Aug. 15, 3:30-6:30 p.m. Youth and Sports Center Parking Lot Your Children, Youth, and Family Ministry Team wants to see you before summer is over and celebrate the return to learning this fall – whether you’ll be at school, at home, or both! Bring your family to this drive-through event for a blessing prayer and an ice cream treat (FREE)! Also pick up a back-to-school gift bag with a water bottle sticker, mechanical pencil, handmade cloth mask, and comic book. All children and youth looking forward to a school year ahead are invited – preschoolers to college students! We also invite your family to bring a backpack to donate to our Community Resource Center to be filled with school supplies for area children. (No supplies are needed – just backpacks.) To ensure this is a safe, socially-distanced event, please remain in your vehicle at all times. Items (including dessert treats) will be handed to you in a safe manner. If you are experiencing any illness or COVID-related symptoms, we ask that you remain at home. Families are also invited to attend the 4 or 6 p.m. worship services outside Great Hall the same day. Prior registration is required to attend worship – details and sign-up here.
"Our third child will be starting at the Preschools of St. Andrew’s this fall. Shannon and Denise are qualified and caring. They have helped each of our children prepare for kindergarten. All have excelled coming out of St. Andrew’s. Additionally, each child has grown in their faith and social skills. Thank you, Preschools of St. Andrew’s!!" – Margot K.

As a kindergarten teacher myself, I am passionate about the quality of preschool programs my children attend, and this one is top notch. The daily schedule and curriculum is developmentally appropriate for young children, while also preparing them well for the rigors of kindergarten. The field trips and daily outings to chapel, Spanish class and visiting grand-friends enrich my child’s experience in ways that only this school can. And, I cannot say enough about the teachers. They love and care for their students like they are their own. They go above and beyond to reach each child where they are at, and gently challenge each one to learn, grow and thrive. It is with all my heart that I recommend the Preschools of St. Andrews." - Abby J. "The Preschools of St. Andrew’s is truly an amazing place! Our family was blessed to have attended this school for six years. My children love St. Andrew’s! The best [...]
