Parent / Teacher Conferences are scheduled for October 13th and 14th from 1-6 PM. Please sign up for a conference with your children's homeroom teachers.

Kindergarteners "Write Around the Room"

Our Kindergarteners used dry erase boards to write words they discovered throughout their classroom.

Important EDM Information from Mrs. Bowman

For the safety of our students we require all adults picking up students from Extended Day Ministry to sign out at the front office. Since it is hard for the EDM staff to know everyone that may be picking up a student, the front desk staff may request to see your identification before we will release the student to you. Your patience and cooperation with this process is greatly appreciated.

Please note: During dismissal (3:05 pm – 3:35 pm) students cannot be picked up from the front office.

Powerschool Information

St. Susanna's PowerSchool has moved to the Archdiocese of Indianapolis server; therefore, your old link, bookmark, & account will need to be reset.

Please use the link below and the student access id & password found in the back-to-school packet Passwords Page to create a new account and link your student.

If you would like to access your PowerSchool account on your mobile phone, please complete the new account process on your computer first and then remove and re-download the PowerSchool App on your phone. The new code to connect to St. Susanna School on your mobile phone is TMHH.

You may use your new PowerSchool account to access accounts of any of your other children who attend Archdiocese of Indianapolis Schools. If you have other students attending public schools using PowerSchool, you will need to create a separate account at the link provided by that school.

If you need assistance, please email Kandi Carson at

School Counselor

I am happy to announce that Saint Susanna has a school counselor available for our students on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Ms. Katie Evans comes to us from Catholic Charities. She is a licensed clinical social worker / therapist. She will work with students on an individual basis, as needed. She will also teach whole class social-emotional lessons on topics such as being a good friend, bullying, and other age-appropriate topics. Ms. Evans presence in our school is made possible by utilizing a portion of our EANS grant from the federal government over the next two school years.

Students may be referred to the Ms. Evans by teachers or the principal for a one-time visit. After that, parents must complete an consent form for continued visits. The consent form is available at the end of the Monday Memo or in the school office. You can reach Ms. Evans directly at

Easy Fund-Raising for Saint Susanna Catholic School!

Box Tops for Education

Here’s how it works:

  • Step 1: Download the new Box Tops App (iTunes or Google Play) – it’s free
  • Step 2: Create a username and connect it to your child’s school
  • Step 3: Scan your grocery store receipt. Items with the new Box Tops label will be automatically credited to your school

Does this mean I should stop sending in my paper Box Tops that I have already clipped? No! Continue to send those to the school!

Kroger Community Rewards

Information on the Kroger Community Rewards program can be found here on their website or under the "rewards" tab in your Kroger app. You will need to search for the exact name of our organization as SAINT SUSANNAS SCHOOL PTP . From there, you can link your Kroger card with our organization and a portion of your spending at Kroger will come to us.
