Alberta Highway Cleanup - Saturday, May 2nd
The 7th year of Andrew School Athletics Program will run Saturday, May 2nd.
The clean-up entails 80 km of highway surrounding Andrew and nets the Athletic Program over $4000 yearly. This money is used to keep fees low by paying for team clothing and jerseys.
All student athletes are to participate and we hope for as many volunteers as we can get.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
8:30 - registration, light breakfast and safety meeting
9:00 - transportation to assigned spot and clean up begins
12:00 - 12:30 - lunch is served
4:00 - 5:00 - finish clean up
Servus Credit Union "Run for the Bus" - Saturday, June 13th
Saturday, June 13th will be the date for the 4th Annual "Run for the Bus."
The fun run incorporates either a 4km run/walk or a 10km run. All participants must raise a minimum of $50. There will be prizes for the highest fundraisers and participation prizes as well.
The Andrew branch of Servus Credit Union is once again our corporate sponsor and is donating t-shirts for all participants.
Last year this fun run event raised over $5800 for the Andrew School Athletics Program. All funds raised help to offset the travel expenses of the program which is ever expanding. The program travels approximately 12,000 km a year for volleyball, basketball, golf, curling, track and badminton.
The day promises to be a great success once again, with the run starting at 10 am, registration at 9:30 and a healthy lunch to follow.
For more information, a participant form, or to donate please email Cory.Kokotailo@eips.ca or call the school at 780-365-3501.
The Andrew Wildcats would like to thank you in advance for all your support of keeping our students involved in sport.
Elementary Artist Visit!
A huge thanks goes out to Geri Clarke, for coming out and painting with our grade one to six students. They worked really hard all day to create their very own master pieces. These paintings will soon be on display in the front office area in our school! Click on the following link to see a slide show of all of our students hard work.
We hope that you enjoy them! It was a great day and the students created some really nice paintings.

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.
