Congratulations to our 300 Gold Raffle winners! And the beauty of this raffle is that your names all go back into the pot for next month’s drawing! Ticket sales will continue until all 300 tickets are sold, so it’s not too late to double and triple your chances for March, April, and May’s drawings!!

This is not your ordinary raffle…


To benefit St. Andrew School.

Here’s what makes it a win-win-win:

#1 WE ONLY SELL 300 TICKETS, so your odds of winning are at least 1 in 300! You won’t find better odds in any other raffle!

#2 THERE ARE MULTIPLE DRAWINGS, further increasing your odds of winning. 4 drawings each month x 5 months of drawings = 20 chances to win with your one golden ticket!

#3 BIG REWARDS each month: $500, $200, + $50 x 2 each month. We’re giving away $800 each month!!

Order forms will be available in this week’s Thursday folders in time for the holiday break. You can also purchase in the school office or online by clicking the link in the right sidebar. Open to school families first because these will go quickly! Happy Thanksgiving!

kidZone 2016 is right around the corner!


Our annual fundraiser to coincide with Waynesboro’s Market Day is scheduled for Saturday, October 1 from 9:00am- 3:00pm. kidZone will feature carnival-style games, live entertainment, food (homemade fries!), bake sale treats, face-painting, the famous train ride, a rock wall, a bounce house, etc. It promises to be a fun-filled day. Please invite all of your friends and family out to support this special event. New this year, we’re hosting  Waynesboro’s Inaugural Market Day Family Fun Run, scheduled to begin at 8:00 am, so get your running shoes ready. The finish line will end at St. Andrew School to officially kick off our event! For details about the race and registration information, click here. (OR click the button in the right sidebar)

And we can’t make this all happen without volunteers! A big project like this becomes very do-able if everyone just chips in to do a little. Remember, we’re raising money this year to go towards new technology for our kids. For your convenience, sign up on our Volunteer Spot site.
