Welcome Back!

 
 
Dear Parents/Guardians:
 


Welcome back to another exciting school year!  We extend a warm welcome to parents, students, and staff who are new to St. Eugene Catholic School community.  We extend our best wishes and congratulations to our following staff members:  to Mrs. Caringi on the arrival of her baby boy, to Mr. Virginillo on his recent marriage over the summer break, to Mrs. BouYounes (Special Education teacher) as well as to Mrs. Irene Kueng (PLASP) for a long, healthy and happy retirement.  May God continue to bless the staff members who have moved forward onto new paths.
 
Thank you to Mr. Gallippi (Head Custodian) and Mr. Syrotyuk (Evening Custodian) for their hard work over the summer.  Our school is clean and beautiful—something we take great pride in!  Ms. Giovinazzo (Administrative Assistant) has been extremely busy at the office ensuring a smooth transition to another school year and the launch of 3 full day Kindergarten classes.          
 
As a community of Catholics deeply rooted in faith, we embark on our 3rd year of a 3-year cycle with the TCDSB to deepen our understanding of the ministries of Faith, Hope, and Charity.  Building on the existing Virtues of the Month initiative and the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations, for this year, we will focus on Year Three:  Ministry of Charity as we go forth to know, to love, and to serve God.  The glory of God can be found in the Holy Scriptures and our most reverent Cardinal Thomas Collins reminds us to listen attentively to God’s gentle voice in the midst of our busy lives for too often we can become too wrapped up in ourselves—we need to slow down and listen to the Word of God, “Speak Lord, your servant is listening”.  This requires active daily engagement as disciples of Jesus Christ.  Parents, students, staff, and parish team are called to give our very best; our offering to God guided by God’s Word, centered on Charity, and made meaningful in our day-to-day lives through humble service as Witnesses to Christ.    
 
We take pride in our partnership with home, school and parish; working closely with Father Andrzej Glaba and our parish team as we continue to focus on nurturing our Catholic community, improve student learning and achievement, as well as build capacity to lead and learn.  To enable our children to succeed, each of us has an important role and contribution to make.  Together, I believe that we can combine our talents and skills to promote and enhance student achievement and learning in the context of a safe and Catholic faith-filled school and make St. Eugene Catholic School a great place to be—where our students come first! 
 
Curriculum Night-Meet the Teacher and our CSAC Barbecue will be held on Thursday, October 2nd.   A flyer will be sent home.  We look forward to meeting you in person so please take this opportunity to visit.  Our first Newsletter package will be sent home within the next few days.  We encourage you to read information sent home as it will highlight important notices, information, and celebrate student successes.
 
I look forward to seeing you “out and about”!  We wish everyone a successful year!
