In Case You Missed It - School News on Repeat

Safe and Sacred - Previously known as Circle of Grace Next week, during your child’s regular religious education time, the Safe and Sacred curriculum will be taught. The aim of this program is to teach children how to be safe, protect themselves, and communicate any potential danger. In the Church’s desire to help keep your children safe, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City requires that all children and young people participating in religious education in any parish or Catholic school in the Archdiocese receive this instruction. Please be on the lookout for an email going home this week with more detailed information. If you have any questions, concerns or would like to review the curriculum, please contact Mrs. Ison at

Calling all technology minded individuals! We would like to form a 2-3 person team of volunteers to help maintain technology around the school. IT service calls can take a huge bite out of our budget, so we are looking for people who have experience with maintaining networks and general troubleshooting (desktops, Chromebooks, printers, smart devices, etc). Ideally each volunteer would be able to make a 2-3 year commitment, and would help find their replacement before rolling off the tech team. An example of some of the tasks we need help with include updating desktops to Windows 10, making sure computers are connected to network printers, checking that security updates are completed regularly, setting up new equipment as needed, helping remove broken/outdated tech from inventory, salvaging usable components, etc. Please contact Mrs. Goldsworthy and reference Tech Team in your subject heading.

Looking for a Volunteer Musician! We would love to have music in the church again! We are looking for a volunteer or two to play the piano or guitar for either or both school masses each week. If you or your student is willing to play some of the liturgical music, please let Mrs. Goldsworthy know.

PTO News

PTO wants your best recipes! The community of St Eugene Church and School put out a cookbook almost 15 years ago. With more people than ever staying home and cooking, it's the perfect year to make another one! We need your help though to make it the most tasty one yet! Please submit as many of your favorite recipes as you would like to We are hoping to make this our most delicious cookbook ever! Copies will be available in time to give as holiday gifts!

CSSE Family Feature!

Get to know the Terrones Family, Celio, Alyssa, Ann Marie and John Paul! The Terrones family joined our community when 7th grader, Ann Marie, started at St. Eugene last year.

Why did you choose The Catholic School of St. Eugene? My husband and I decided to take a tour. We were impressed with the curriculum, smaller class sizes, and diversity of the school. We knew it would be a great fit for our daughter.

What is your favorite thing about The Catholic School of St. Eugene?

There is a wonderful sense of community at CSSE.

Is there anything else about your family you would like to share?

Hi! We are Celio, Alyssa, Ann Marie, and John Paul Terrones. Over quarantine, we added a new member to the family! We adopted Sadie, a coonhound. She loves belly rubs, peanut butter, and chasing squirrels. We look forward to getting to know more of our CSSE families.

We are so glad the Terrones family is a part of CSSE!
