We welcome our families back for the 2023-2024 School Year!
The purpose of our Sunday School program is to teach the children all aspects of the Orthodox Christian life, as well as to promote fellowship with their Orthodox peers and parish family. Students learn about their faith through classroom lessons, music and outreach projects. Throughout the year, children participate in a variety of events, including the Christmas Pageant, St. John Chrysostom.
Every child has a home at St. Andrew. Children ages 1-18 years old learn our Orthodox faith and help build community along the way. Children attend Divine Liturgy with their families, receive Communion and then proceed to their classroom.
Children 2 and under and their parent(s) are invited to remain in the service or gather in the upstairs crying room.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Our teachers are dedicated volunteers, who give time for 1) Sunday mornings, 2) weeknight meetings and education sessions, 3) weekly hours to prepare lessons. Meanwhile, parents are encouraged to support our school by reinforcing lessons at home, reviewing and asking questions, and volunteering for special events. Parental participation is essential.
We have dedicated, volunteer teachers and are always encouraging new families to get involved in our Church School. If you have questions or interested in getting involved in PTO as a parent volunteer, please contact our Sunday School Director, Tracey Lazos
