We Are Family - November 8, 2021
Saturday night's Jamboree was so much fun! Many thanks to all of our ticket sellers, dessert bakers, cornbread fixers, chili cookers, volunteers and attendees. Special thanks to the committee that pulled this together including Gaytanna McGuire who chaired the event again this year. Pony rides from City Ranch was a fun addition to this year's event as well. I look forward to this evening every year!
This is a busy week as we prepare for two events on Thursday: our annual All Souls Mass and Procession at 8:45 AM and our Veterans Day Program at 2:00 PM. Both will be held in the church and all are welcome to join us. Both programs will also be available on our YouTube channel's livestream.
Picture makeup day is Wednesday, November 10th. Students who are getting pictures retaken may dress out of uniform that day.
Have a great week Spartans!

Retake Day FAQ's
Q. Does my student need to bring anything with them if they missed the first picture day?
A. No, they just come to the photographer with their best smile!
Q. We received our photos, but would like to do a retake. What does my student need to have with them for a retake?
A. They must have their original packet with ALL contents inside, even if they did not purchase a package. The photographer needs this packet, or we will be unable to do the retake.
Q. I did not purchase a package, can I still have my student retake their photo?
A. Yes, your student will need to bring their original packet, with the proof inside. Please also include $5 for the retake fee. The photographer needs the packet, or we will be unable to do the retake.
If you have any additional questions regarding Retake Day on Wednesday, November 10th, please contact us here: https://www.cripephoto.com/customer-service-form
PLEASE BE SURE YOU RETURN ALL OF THE ORIGINAL PHOTO PACKET IN ORDER TO DO A RETAKE! Thanks!

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!
