   We are very disappointed that we are not able to host many of the events we usually do at this time of year. We were, however, able to hold a Veteran’s Day Luncheon on November 10th, to honor those who have served our country. It was a privilege to be able to host them for a meal and some entertainment. We are looking forward to hosting our annual Winter Concert on December 14th. These were always very special events for our school and we are excited to be able to begin to enjoy them again.

We will once again be hosting our Andes Senior Citizens holiday dinner on Friday, December 10th, at 1 p.m. for any Andes resident age 55 or older.  This is our way to show our appreciation of all of your support through the years. The entire school looks forward to this day.  If you would like to attend the dinner, please call the school and leave us your name so we can be sure to prepare enough food.  Please be advised that we will be following COVID protocols with wearing your mask and social distancing.

Our students have lost so many opportunities over the last couple of years, but we were able to provide lots of fun events on Halloween.  We would like to thank the Andes branch of Wayne Bank and the Andes Public Library for inviting our littlest ones to visit them during their parade through town.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful holiday season!  Please stay safe and healthy.~
