Safety Reminders for Eagle Cove/South Lot Drop Off
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 Eagle Cove cars 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. 1st-8th parents, please be mindful if someone is waiting to exit.
Thank you for following these procedures to keep everyone safe!
Last Day for Early Bird Re-enrollment for 2022-23
Thank you to the families who have taken the time to fill out their re-enrollment packets online! Saturday, February 12th, is the last day for current families to receive the early bird registration fee discount when they re-enroll. The normal registration fee applies beginning Sunday the 13th. All registration fees will withdraw on May 5th.
Early Childhood spots are always in demand, so families with younger children should fill out re-enrollment ASAP so their current student doesn't lose their seat for next year! We will begin sending acceptance letters to new applicants soon.
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 (email@example.com) so we know your child's spot is available.
Refer Your Friends and Family!
Join Dads’ Club!
All CSSE Dads are welcome to join us at a Dads' Club Meeting next Thursday, February 17th @ 7:00 pm.
Please come out and get to know other St. Eugene dads. Please RSVP with confirmations only so we can reserve the right amount of space. Please forward to any new CSSE Dads you might know.

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!
Renew Your Spiritual Life this New Year! Ready to give your spiritual life a boost? Sign up for Bible in a Year and Catholic Sprouts daily podcasts! These are great resources to help you learn more about our Catholic faith and develop a deeper relationship with God. Most of these podcasts last only a few minutes, and could be completed while you are sitting in the carpool line!
