Traditions, Events, and Occasions

The St. Andrew’s school year includes a variety of meaningful, educational, and fun-filled activities and events for students at every grade level.  With such a full calendar, it can be difficult to keep track of which events are for which student age groups, as well as which events are for students only, which events parents are expected to attend, and which events are full-fledged, not-be-missed occasions for the whole family.  Traditions, Events, and Occasions will help parents of St. Andrew’s students prepare their children for important events and activities, as well as let parents know which key events they should plan to attend. 


All parents are members of the St. Andrew’s Parents’ Association (SAPA) which handles volunteer activities ranging from providing snacks for classroom parties to coordinating major fundraisers.  SAPA is governed by an executive board and provides leadership through division coordinators, grade coordinators, event chairs and room parents, who organize these volunteer opportunities.   SAPA volunteers not only help the school, but also interactions with other parents help foster a united spirit throughout the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School community.  Volunteering with SAPA occurs twice a year online through a link in the SAPA portion of this website. Information on leadership positions is available in January / February for the following year, and volunteers for various events and committees are requested each August.


Traditions, Events, and Occasions is intended to make you aware of significant happenings and to make you aware of the extent of parent involvement.  However, this guide cannot be a complete listing of the many spontaneous opportunities afforded our students.  Additional sources are listed at the beginning of each section.  For complete and up-to-the-minute listings of events and activities at St. Andrew’s, please subscribe to the class e-mail list for your child’s class under “Academic Accounts” in the Parent Portal of this website
