The St. Eugene Home and School Association is our parent association, which provides many different benefits to the school. Parent volunteers work with school staff to provide curriculum enhancement activities and financially assist educational needs of all the students. Through the Home and School Association, St. Eugene offers many friendraisers such as our kindergarten play dates in the summer, the new/host family program, and trunk or treat at Halloween. Home and School fundraisers include Calendar of Cash, the rummage sale, trivia night, and third party funding opportunities.
Profits generated by these fundraisers allows Home and School to pay for many significant projects at St. Eugene School. Money from the Home and School has allowed us to renovate our two kindergarten rooms, install new playground equipment, keep our computer lab up to date, install a computerized card catalog and checkout system in the school library, purchase SmartBoards for every classroom, purchase new desks for the classrooms, and reimburse teachers for materials they purchase.
Because of the high involvement and commitment of our parent volunteers, our Home and School Association is an active and highly effective organization. In fact, in 2004 we won the Distinguished Home and School Award from the National Catholic Education Association in recognition of the excellence of our programs.
