Are You Interested in Being a Classroom Sub?

We are always looking for guest teachers and classroom subs. If you are interested in joining our list of on call substitutes, please let Mrs. Goldsworthy know. There have been very few school days this year when we have not needed someone to fill in somewhere!

St. Eugene Gala

Each year our church and school work together to host an annual gala with the proceeds primarily supporting special projects and needs at the parish school. Past gala funds have gone toward school technology upgrades, flexible furniture for classrooms and shared spaces, and capital improvements such as carpet replacement. Last year’s gala paid for fun and age-appropriate outdoor play equipment for our Early Childhood program. They are loving their space and equipment, with more items to come!

Our 2022 gala chairs, Stephanie Deal and Kari Webber, are already hard at work securing a venue and planning for our April 22nd event. Be on the lookout for more information and the call to join the gala committee! The gala is a tremendous effort that offers the whole community an opportunity to give of their time, talent and treasure for the benefit of our students and school. Save the date for the evening of Friday, April 22, 2022!
