FAMILY SCHOOL ASSOCIATION (FSA) NEWS

Student Directory
Saint Cecilia FSA printed a directory to share class lists and contact information. These directories will be sent home with your student (one per family). If you don’t receive a directory or if any of your information is incorrect, please email Jessica Loecke at jjloecke@gmail.com. The back few pages of the directory include a section where school families could share their business information. Thank you to all of these businesses for supporting FSA. 

Meals
One of the great ways our school families support each other is by providing meals for familes who recently had newborns or when someone is recovering from surgery and needs extra help. FSA will send out a meal train link in the Principal’s Notes that you can sign up for. It is a great way to meet families and it helps so much! Please contact Emily at emilyposs@gmail.com if you know someone who would benefit from a meal train. Thanks!

Box Top$ for Education Update
We are planning to submit the box tops on November 1st, so please bring in any box tops you may have by October 25th. Attached, please see the flyer showing the new online app for scanning receipts instead of manually cutting and bringing them into school. Please note that you can still bring any box tops into school through the expiration date if you’d rather do this instead of the app for now.
                                                            

Restaurant Fundraiser
The first FSA restaurant fundraiser night of the year is Sunday, October 13th from 4:00-8:00 at Panera! Panera will donate back 20% of online orders, deliveries and dine in orders made during this time. Check your child’s folder next Friday for a flier to show at the restaurant or show this electronic version to get credit. This will be a fun and yummy way to support the school!
