Christmas Toy Drive
This Advent season, our school will be sponsoring the Christmas Connection, a Sharing Tree Program. This is an opportunity for the students to get involved in the act of giving. Our generosity will help ensure more than 770 families will be able to place gifts under their Christmas trees.
The Third Grade SALT program will be organizing the collection of gifts CSSE donates. While you are doing your own Christmas shopping, please consider getting extra gifts to help those who are less fortunate. Bring new, unwrapped toys to the school library Monday, Nov. 29th through Friday, December 3rd.
Check out these wish lists on Amazon, Walmart, and Target, but feel free to bring whatever you like from anywhere you choose to purchase it. Most needed items include Children's Clothes (ages 3 and up) and Girl's Toys (ages 9 and up).
Please help us bring Christmas to the families who need us!
LAST DAY for 8th Grade Trash Bag Orders!

Thanks for a GREAT Book Fair!
Upcoming Eat & Earns - Always mention St. Eugene when you order so we get a donation back to the school. Thank you, and don’t forget to spread the word to family and friends! Have an idea for an Eat and Earn or school fundraiser? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

It’s time to sign up for the Best Advent Ever! Receive video reflections beginning on the first day of Advent, Sunday, November 28.
This year’s program is about finding the inspiration you need to say no to what draws you to the darkness of worry and fear and yes to what draws you to the light of healing and hope! Matthew Kelly and the wisdom of his new book, Life Is Messy, will be your guide in that journey. Copies will be available in the narthex soon!
