A Note from Mrs. Goldsworthy
Our safety enhancements are proving to be useful! We utilized our RAVE emergency notification to our staff when the fire alarm went off a couple of weeks ago. That issued notification to all staff and emergency responders along with our normal response with the fire alarm system. Everything went well and the kids were great!
We continue to seek safety improvements on campus. I recently applied for a security grant to help fund security window film. We are initiating a fundraiser for safety that kids will love: $5 Free Dress Fridays. Please see dates and details below. I hope this is a successful way to raise funds while giving back to our children in the form of free dress (within guidelines).
We look forward to your continued support and continued safety enhancements!
Reminder - Turn in Federal Funding Form
Order Uniform Sweatshirts for Cooler Weather!
Cooler weather is FINALLY making its way into Oklahoma, which means long sleeves are in order! As a reminder, students may only wear uniform items in the school building, which means no hoodies, Nike sweatshirts, etc. We are taking orders for Flynn O'Hara UNIFORM sweatshirts. These are the navy sweatshirts with the screen printed school logo in the corner. They may be worn at any time EXCEPT during school mass (only plain or embroidered fleeces/sweaters may be worn at mass - see dress code).
Place orders by THURSDAY 10/12 through our sweatshirt order form to be billed through FACTS (school families only). Sweatshirts will be sent home with the youngest child when they are ready. Youth sizes - $20 each / Adult sizes - $24 each.

If you want your child to opt out of the program, please go to the school office to fill out a form and let your child's teacher know.

$5 Free Dress Fridays!
$5 Free Dress Fridays start later this month to help fund Safety Improvements at our school. Students in grades K-8 may opt to participate in a $5 Free Dress Day at school on certain days by paying $5 per student per Free Dress Day. Send cash or checks to school in a marked envelope to your child's homeroom teacher by the designated day for each day your student participates (or pay for all days in advance). Please send money with each sibling to make it easier on teachers as they collect and mark down who has paid. Free Dress guidelines still apply. Those who do not wish to participate should wear their normal uniform. We are also happy to accept additional donations for our Safety fund!
$5 Free Dress Day Dates

Bring Sock Donations to Mass Oct. 7 & 8. It is that time of the year again! The Secular Franciscans and the St. Eugene Homeless Ministry need socks for the homeless. Please bring at least one pair of NEW socks to Mass on the weekend of October 7th - 8th and deposit them in the Homeless box. If every family of the parish can do this, it will fulfill the needs for 3-5 months!
Sunday Breakfast Ministry Attendance is growing, and so is the need for breakfast items and hosts! This ministry is 100 percent powered by volunteers, and we need more parishioners to commit to help support this weekly gathering. Food items can be homemade, baked or store bought! Biscuits, breads, crackers, cookies — you name it. Please sign up to host a regular Sunday or bring an item to share. It is a wonderful opportunity for a family to volunteer together.
