Soles for Catholic Education  – Strap on your walking shoes and join me for the first ever “Soles for Catholic Education” Walk on Saturday, November 2nd. This 2 mile fun walk around Mount Mary is to promote and celebrate Catholic education in SE Wisconsin.  This year we are replacing our annual fall Walk-a-Thon with “Soles for Catholic Education“, an Archdiocese-wide walk where we will participate with other schools. All of the money raised stays at St. Andrew School!  The focus of this fundraising event will be to provide funds for technology.  With the money raised from this event, we are hoping to put a SMARTBoard, Ipad and Apple TV in every classroom.  Please help us reach our goal.

Will You Be Able to Make Mr. Chovanec BE a Spartan?


If St. Andrew School raises $6,000.00 for this event, I will walk the 2 mile course at Mount Mary University in a Spartan Costume.  Please see the St. Andrew School website for more details.

St. Andrew “PRIDE” – In this week’s St. Andrew “PRIDE” section, I’d like to congratulate a former St. Andrew School student and his family on a very special honor.

Schuyler Williams (a 2009 St. Andrews graduate) was one of only 15 Delavan-Darien High School graduates from the class of 2013 that received Advanced Placement Scholar honors after the 2012-13 round of college-level tests.

Schuyler received AP Scholar Honors for the 2012-13 school year.  AP scholars receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP tests.  Passing AP tests with scores of 3 or higher often results in students receiving college credit in the subject area. Students typically take AP tests their junior and senior years of high school.

The 15 Advanced Placement courses offered at DDHS include: AP Studio Art/2D; AP Studio Art: Drawing/3D; AP English 12; AP Calculus; AP Statistics; AP Music Theory; AP Biology; AP Chemistry; AP Physics “C”; AP Government and Politics; AP European History; AP Psychology; AP Spanish; and AP French.

Congratulations to Schuyler Williams, his family, and his teachers (past and present).  St. Andrew School is proud of the academic achievement of our former students.  We work hard to provide a solid academic and spiritual base for all of our students.  As Scripture states: “Remain in me, and I will remain in you.”  John 15: 4


Mr. John Chovanec, Principal

St. Andrew School
