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 such as an Artist Residence program. Home and School also provides administrative support such as lunchroom supervision. Through the Home and School, St. Eugene offers many friendraisers, such as our kindergarten play dates in the summer. Finally, Home and School organizes a number of fundraisers, including a magazine sale, book fair, and rummage sale.
Through these fundraisers, the Home and School has been able to fund 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 several classrooms, and reimburse teachers for materials they purchase for their classrooms.
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 theDistinguished Home and School Award from the National Catholic Education Association in recognition of the excellence of our programs.
