We Are Family - October 4, 2021
As you may have heard on the news, lunch programs around the country are having difficulty obtaining enough products resulting in changes to their menu. Ms. Trump, our cafeteria manager, has done an amazing job working with our suppliers to ensure that we have not felt the effects of these shortages. At most, we have had some changes to the published breakfast items. This morning we served triple berry French toast instead of the scheduled mini-pancakes. On Wednesday, we will serve chicken tenders instead of the scheduled macaroni and beef. At this time, these are the only changes to the menu we are aware of in the next two weeks. As changes are made to the lunch menu, I will let you know.
We are looking forward to parent conferences next week. Please double check your sign-up confirmation. Some parents have signed up for the wrong teachers. You are able to edit your sign-up and correct any errors. Please let me know if you need assistance.
Lastly, we are looking forward to our pet blessing on Friday in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi's feast day. You can bring your pet (on a leash, in a harness, in a carrier) to our parking lot on Friday morning by 8:30 AM and remain in your vehicles. After arrival is complete, we will gather in the north parking lot for a blessing of the animals by Father Rob. It is always a fun event!
Have a great week Spartans!
Janet Abdoulaye, Principal

The consent form is available at the end of the Monday Memo or in the school office. You can reach Ms. Evans directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

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!
