Zones of Regulation: A Curriculum Designed to Foster Self-Regulation and Emotional Control will take place on Monday, April 30th from 7 to 9 pm at St. Andrew School – 201 Crestway Drive.

Come hear Jennifer Boggett, Occupational Therapist at CHEO, as she discusses “the Zones of Regulation” curriculum, which teaches children self-control, self-management, impulse control, resiliency, anger management and sensory regulation.

Explore what our children have been learning about the four Zones of Regulation, possible “triggers” we should recognize in our children, and what we can do to help.

Learn various tools for self-regulation, including sensory supports, calming techniques and thinking strategies.

Mardi Gras Dance-a-thon

St. Andrew School Council is hosting a “Mardi Gras” Dance-a-thon on Tuesday, February 13th during school hours from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.

The money raised will benefit all St. Andrew students. Council will use the proceeds to purchase technology upgrades, math assessment tools, and sports equipment for the P.A.L.S. program.


In an effort to provide incentive and make the day as much fun as possible, your Dance Committee is looking for any type of prize donation. If you have a community business contact and/or an employer who can help, please drop off the prize donation to the school office no later than Friday, February 9th. Please make sure the donation is clearly marked, so that we can send the donors a thank you note.

Please fill out and return the sponsor sheet and prize draw tickets by Monday, February 12th to be eligible to win prizes, including random draws ($10 gift cards) and a Pizza Party for the top fundraising class!

Here’s how it works:
▪ Every student will automatically have one chance to win a prize by filling out 1 ticket
▪ Every $5 raised gets an additional entry into the draw. The more you raise, the better your chance to win a prize!
▪ The top 5 ‘raisers’ in the school will receive a special prize!

Students are encouraged to dress up in their Valentine’s or Mardi Gras outfits (no masks please)!

Please contact with any questions or comments.

Thank you again for your support. We know it will be a great day!

An information package will be sent home with students this week. You can find a copy of the package, including information on how to fill out your tickets, a copy of the sponsor form, and the template to print more tickets in the link below.
