Thank you for your patience. The EIPS email issue has been corrected.
Look what just arrived...
The Yearbooks are in and will be distributed today. If you forgot to order one and would like to buy one please stop by the library to see Ms. Forst as she has a few extras to sell. Cost per book is $25.
The Book Fair is coming
"Saddle Up and Read Book Fair Adventure Awaits"
Andrew School is pleased once again to have the Scholastic Book Fair come to the school and you are invited to come support this great literary event. A portion of all sales comes back to the school to purchase books and resources. Please come look around and purchase items if you like. Be sure to check your child(s) backpack to see the promotional flyer closer to the event; which highlights some of books that may be in the fair, or ones that you can order in.
The “Family Event” Draw will be held on the evening of Thursday, November 30th. This means that any parent that comes with their child(ren) in the evening can drop off the entry (see the back of the flyer) to be entered to win $25 of free books for your child and $25 for the classroom.
The fair will be open to the public during school hours, so stop by and do some Christmas shopping. I hope to see you during the following times:
Wednesday, November 29 - 9:00 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Thursday, November 30 – 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (use School entrance) & 6:30-9:30 p.m. "Family Event” Night (Please use the Public Library entrance)
Friday, December 1 – 9:00 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.
Monday, December 4 - 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Thanks in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you.
Ms. C Forst
Book Fair Chairperson

Cash or cheques (made payable to "Andrew School") are acceptable forms of payments.
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay pay fees online.
If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
Important Dates and Times
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.
Sync the School Calendar to your personal calendar
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
