St. Andrew's School Savannah preK kindergarten Wilmington Island

St. Andrew’s School in Savannah will donate 75 iPads to Horizons Savannah this fall. The iPads will be distributed to students throughout Chatham County who participate in Horizons summer program.

community.”

“Horizons is very fortunate to partner with St. Andrew’s School. In addition to this gift of technology for our students, St. Andrew’s provides a supportive and welcoming environment for all Horizons students and families each summer. Horizons students will use these devices to access distance learning from public school and also continue to be supported by our Horizons faculty through this transition.”

Monday, June 8th, 2020

St. Andrew's Savannah schools private Wilmington Island

As longtime supporters of St. Andrew’s School in Savannah, the Wilkowksi family annually presents a scholarship to one male and one female student athlete in the senior class.

To be eligible for this $1,000 scholarship, a student must have at least a 3.0 GPA, have attended St. Andrew’s all four years in the Upper School, and must have earned at least 7 Varsity letters. All eligible candidates are interviewed by Dr. Mike Wilkowksi and winners are selected from the interview process.

The 2020 Wilkowski Scholarship Award winners are Matt Eling and Cayleigh Nicholson (pictured right). At St. Andrew’s, Matt participated in Varsity Soccer and Swimming and Cayleigh participated in Varsity Cross Country and Soccer. Matt and Cayleigh are both attending Georgia Tech in the fall.

“The Wilkowski sisters, Grace ’06, Mary ’07, and Rose ’08, exemplified the true meaning of being a student athlete,” said Kelley Waldron, Head of School. “These three alumni were fully committed to their studies, the school community, and their skills on the court and field.”

In recognition of their successes, in 2014 the school retired all three jerseys for the Wilkowski sisters.

(Savannah schools) St. Andrew’s School wins first place at Inventure Competition

Saturday, January 25th, 2020

St Andrew's School Savannah Congratulations to St. Andrew’s School Middle School students for winning top honors at Georgia Tech’s annual InVenture Prize competition.

The winning design tech team is made up Jacob Chu ’25, Holden Haenel ’25, and Liam Luther ’25. These young inventors will now travel to the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta, presenting their BabyAlertt invention at the state level of competition on March 11.

Under the guidance of instructor Maria Dixon, these students have been working for several months to create an alert for parents who may accidentally leave a baby in a hot car. The device lays on top of a child’s car seat and includes a pressure sensor that is activated when the car reaches dangerous temperatures.

InVenture challenges students to identify real-world problems and design novel solutions through careful analysis, creativity, and the scientific method. The goal is to broaden participation in STEM by bringing authentic invention and entrepreneurship experiences to K-12 teachers and students.

For more information on the Inventure challenge or St. Andrew’s School, visit inventureprize.gatech.edu or saslions.com.

(Savannah schools) St. Andrew’s School Kindness Project

Monday, November 11th, 2019

St. Andrew's School Savannah kindness project

St. Andrew’s School on Wilmington Is. in Savannah invites the public to view and participate in a kindness project that is currently on display at the Islands Library, 50 Johnny Mercer Blvd, Savannah.

The collaborative project encourages individuals to pick a “kindness flower” and act on the words written on the leaf. The kindness project began as part of a summer camp at St. Andrew’s taught by parent Lea Lynch and artist Tiffany O’Brien.

“Tiffany created a beautiful display to serve as the backdrop for the project and students created tissue paper flowers with specific acts of kindness written on each stem,” said Lea Lynch. “The project really took off and the St. Andrew’s Lower School wanted to keep the kindness flowers blooming year-round.”

The school’s youngest students create the flowers from colorful tissue paper and the acts of kindness are the last component added before the flowers goes on the display board. Kindness acts range from sharing a smile with someone to taking the time to write and send a thank you note.

“Our students are busy making more flowers to keep up with the demand of people picking the flowers,” said Anne Weisel, Head of the Lower School.

The kindness project board will be at the Islands Library through the month of November. The exhibit travels to the Frank G. Murray Community Center for the month of January.

St. Andrew’s is an independent, International Baccalaureate World School offering the Diploma Program. The school inspires students age three through grade 12.
