We hope that you will join us for Bubbles & Bowties: A Party with a Purpose on April 22, 2022 at the Skirvin Hilton.

The annual St. Eugene Gala is the biggest fundraiser of the year for our school. Not only is it a night of raising money for our children's education and our parish, but we have fun doing it. Our galas are nothing short of an evening to remember, and now that we are finally back in person, we are going all out!

While you mingle with fellow St. Eugene parents and parishioners, there will be live and silent auctions to participate in, with must have items to win. There will be excellent cuisine, musical entertainment, games to play, drinks to enjoy, and just an exciting adult night out.

Enjoy it all while supporting our parish, our school, and our school staff, who continue to provide The Education You Pray For.

Hurry and get your tickets and make plans to join us for an incredible evening together!

News on Repeat

Don't Lose Your Seat!

Thank you to the families who have taken the time to fill out their re-enrollment packets online! We have been reviewing new student applications, and will begin sending out acceptance letters. If you intend to return in the Fall, it is of utmost importance that you complete your enrollment, otherwise your student may lose their seat. We do have some grade levels that are close to or at capacity with a wait list. Early Childhood spots are always in demand, so families with younger children should fill out re-enrollment ASAP.

Make sure you apply for new siblings now so they receive preference when we begin reviewing new student applications this month!

If you do NOT intend to re-enroll for 2022-23, please email Mrs. Metz ( so we know your child's spot is available.


1. If you are dropping off a preschool student in Eagle Cove, make sure your older children who are walking to the main school doors stay on the sidewalk rather than cross through the parking lot.

2. When you leave Eagle Cove, join the carpool line to exit. Do not drive around the cars that are actively dropping off students. Some of our students exit the driver side doors, and drivers may not see you coming around them on their left side.

3. Drop off goes more smoothly if those leaving Eagle Cove are able to enter the exit line behind the group of 3 cars that have just completed drop off. It allows the staff on carpool duty to attend to three cars at once and keep the line moving quickly.

Thank you for following these procedures to keep everyone safe!


You are our best school representatives! Please share with family and friends why you love St. Eugene! Encourage them to apply or take a tour. A successful referral could result in a tuition credit for your family! See the details in Mrs. Goldsworthy’s February 5th parent email.

Eagle Excellence

Parish & Community News

Check the Monthly Minister’s Schedule! The new minister’s schedule for St. Eugene is out for February, March and April. Make sure you check the schedule for your child’s name if they are an altar server. If your child no longer participates in this ministry, please secure a substitute for your assigned dates and update the church office. We are always looking for more volunteers to serve at weekend mass as lectors, cantors, altar servers, ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Vocare chalice recipients, and more. Contact the church office to find out how you can grow your spiritual life through greater participation in the mass!
