March 8, 2010 News, Events, & Announcements for Andover Parents
Student Accounts
Student tuition and fee invoices were sent out in early February. If you did not receive an invoice, please send an email to Be sure to include the student’s name, ID number and your billing address so that the team in the comptroller’s office can check their records and send you a replacement bill. Payment is due in full by March 8, 2010.

The registrar’s office and the comptroller’s office will close for spring break on March 19th and will reopen on Monday, March 29th. Staff will be available to clear students for registration before and after the break. Only those students whose accounts have been paid in full prior to March 19 will receive a schedule electronically before the start of classes.

To avoid delays at the Andover Bookstore, please ensure that your child’s Blue Card is fully funded prior to his/her return on March 28, 2010.
Traditional Rites of Spring
Graduation is in Sight
Senior spring is an exciting time, with many activities and special events planned for the Class of 2010. However, school is not over, yet! During spring break the Dean of Students Office will email parents a copy of the letter that all seniors will receive when they return to campus. The letter reminds seniors of spring term expectations, lists important dates and provides information about college visits. If you have questions after reading the letter, please contact Claudia Scofield in the Dean of Students Office at 978-749-4175.
PROM 2010
The annual PA One Stop Shop for Prom 2010 will be open on Sunday, May 2nd from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Den. Eligible students (seniors and uppers who are escorted by a senior) may purchase prom tickets, rent tuxedos, and order flowers and photo packages, all by using their BLUE CARD. Students may also make appointments at local hair salons for the day of the prom. Traditionally, more than half of the 400 tickets available are sold at the One Stop Shop for Prom. Use of the Blue Card for prom purchases is new this year. We suggest that you fund your child’s Blue Card to cover these expenses before May 2nd. Seniors will receive a price list for the services and items available at the One Stop Shop for Prom after the break. (Cash or checks may also be used to purchase prom tickets and vendor services, and some vendors will accept credit cards.)
Especially for Parents
PSPA offers a wide variety of Phillips Academy merchandise, ranging from key rings and hats to sweatshirts and jackets. Check out their webpage at Parents of seniors can pre-order their DVD of senior events and commencement and the Graduation Charm on the site, and PSPA is now able to accept payment using Pay Pal. All profits are used to benefit students and support the Campaign for Andover.
While most student organizations welcome new leadership each spring, the Phillipian makes its transition at mid-year. Each winter a new team of editors, writers, photographers and business managers takes the helm of the nation’s oldest student run, independent school newspaper. While each group brings a unique approach to news coverage, the paper remains committed to student journalism of the highest quality. Reading the Phillipian provides parents with the students’ view of current events on campus and around the world. You may access an order form by clicking on “Student Publication Subscription Form” on the Parent Portal.
