Monday Memo

We Are Family - February 28, 2021

Dear Parents,

Ticket sales for the Signature Event have concluded. Thank you so much to all who bought tickets and will be joining us on Saturday. Even if you are not joining, you can participate in the silent auction from home which will include many one-of-a-kind items and experiences! I will send instructions to register with GiveSmart, our online platform, later this week so you can be ready to join in the bidding!

The Event Committee could use a few more volunteers the night of the event. Can you help? Take a look at these great opportunities to help out:!/showSignUp/10c0b44a8ab28abfc1-2022

Around Our School

Our first graders donned masks and gloves and went to work as surgeons... cutting words apart and creating contractions! Now paging, Dr. Spartan!

Social Emotional Learning is an important part of educating the whole child. We learn how to regulate our emotions and interact with those around us. This morning, Mrs. Paullet taught a lesson on using kind words and how we hurt people on the inside when we are not kind. Our third graders were shocked to see that the apple we were mean to was bruised, while the one we were kind to was perfect when we cut it. They realized the bruises can't go away once the apple was bruised. Let us always use kind words with one another.

Second grade was all smiles at their Donuts with Fr. Rob party last week. This was purchased by a second grade family at last year's Signature Event and recently redeemed. What a sweet way to start a Friday morning!

Fifth graders completed Scripture Mardi Gras Floats. They chose a favorite story from Scripture and created floats to illustrate the story in preparation for Lent.

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 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.
