New Archery Program a Huge Success!
Andrew students and staff are very happy to be part of the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). Students from grades 4-12 are encouraged to come out and try their hand at archery. The school purchased six compound bows, targets, arrows, and all other supplies needed to compete and practice. Students are required to take two orientation lessons prior to joining regular practice. Our first orientation sessions had a great turnout, and we will be running more of these introductory lessons in January for any students who were unable to attend in December. We will be having one local competition at the school, and be attending provincial competition at the Edmonton Boat and Sportsman Show in the spring.
The Powerschool parent portal for parents of students in grades 7 to 12 is now open. Please contact the school if you do not have a username and password.

Thank You To The Century Orthodox Parishes Social Club
Andrew School participates in the Breakfast For Learning Program which provides breakfast every morning for any and all students who may want some breakfast before school. We are fortunate to have a few sponsors for this, one of them being the The Century Orthodox Parishes Social Club.
Pictured left to right is Principal Daniel Verhoeff, Nick Melnyk, Terry Melnyk, Suzie Presisniuk, Stan Presisnuik and Assistant Principal T.J. Kennerd. The group delivered a cheque to the school which will ensure the program continues. Thank you very much on behalf of the students of Andrew School.
An exciting year at Andrew School!
Our school is one of the two schools in EIPS that will be officially a part of the high school redesign project. This program will offer extra time and student choice to maximize each students success. As a small school we have always been a "FLEX" school, offering many courses in alternative timetables to make sure students get the courses they need to succeed. The three major changes that Jr. High and Sr. High students will experience will be:
"Teacher Advisory Groups"- these are groups of students from grade 7-12 that meet once every few weeks to monitor academic progress, plan use of FLEX time, and most importantly develop positive relationships with staff and other students they may not regularly spend time with.
"Flex time"- every Monday to Thursday students will have a "flex block" for 30 minutes after lunch. In this time students can catch up on missed assignments, do homework, or work on courses that are of high interest. The Jr. High students will also have a math help class availible once a week during this time as well as a few other exciting choices. Attendance to flex blocks is mandatory.
"Seminars"- most Friday afternoons at our school we will host different presentations that all Jr. And Sr. High students must attend. The seminar schedule includes a variety of essential topics. During this period our Jr. High and Sr. High teachers will be working together in Professional Learning Communities.
Andrew School is a "Nut Aware" School
Please be aware that our school has students with severe peanut allergies. Please be cautious of this when packing lunches and snacks that are being sent to school.
