Update for the week of January 16th

January 13, 2023


Dear SAW Families,


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our students back to school and wish our school community a Happy New Year ! Mr. Grossi continues to be absent so I have returned to St. Andrew to continue my role as Acting Principal. Please review the following information for upcoming events.


This month’s virtue: UNITY 


  • I will make everyone feel welcomed

and appreciated.

  • I will take some time to learn about

the similarities and differences in my


  • I will empower people with my

words, not put them down by calling

them names.


New Year Blessing


Faithful Companion,

In this new year I pray:

To live deeply, with purpose,

To live freely, with detachment,

To live wisely, with humility,

To live justly, with compassion,

To live lovingly, with fidelity,

To live mindfully, with awareness,

To live gratefully, with generosity,

To live fully, with enthusiasm.


Help us to hold this vision and to daily 

renew it in our hearts, becoming ever more one

with You, our truest Selves.

Amen.    – J. Rupp
