Dear Parents,

As the second quarter begins, we have a lot to look forward to.  We’re approaching a time with a lot of opportunities to come together as a school community, beginning with the Trunk-or-Treat event this Tuesday at 4:30 in the school parking lot.  Come at 4:00 to get set up around the perimeter of the lot (starting along the northern edge) and bring the kids for a safe, fun trick-or-treating experience. Come with friends, bring lawn chairs, and decorate your trunk!  Get dressed up, and hand out treats!  This can be a really fun, free family experience!

Another great experience is Donuts with Dad (grandpas, uncles, etc.) coming up this Friday, November 3.  This is sponsored by the 3rd grade parents, but everyone is welcome and encouraged to help make this event memorable.  See how you can be involved… Sign up HERE.

Men’s Club: We are looking for dads or grandfathers who are interested in joining St. Susanna’s Men’s Club.  This group helps with some fundraising and handy-man help around the parish.  Major events include the 2 Lenten fish fries, golf outing, and special cookout lunch for field day.  For fun and fellowship, please contact Joe miller

Picture Makeup Day is Monday, November 6th at 8:30 a.m.  New students and those who were absent on the first picture day will be photographed for the yearbook at that time.
