    Dear Saint Pius X Family and Friends,

    Thank you for all of your support and well wishes regarding my recent announcement. The number of

    emails and special notes that I have received from parents and community members has been overwhelming

    and greatly appreciated. I am blessed and grateful every day to be part of the Saint Pius X community.

    As you may have seen on our schools Saint Pius X Facebook page, all four of our SPX PECSAA basketball

    teams were successful at this past weekends PECSAA Basketball Tournament. Both of our Varsity

    PECSAA Boys and Girls Basketball Teams placed 1st in the tournament and both of our Junior Varsity

    PECSAA Boys and Girls Teams placed 2nd

    . Congratulations to our basketball teams and cheerleading

    squads for a job well done! Tomorrow, our three SPX Varsity Basketball Teams and Varsity Cheerleading

    Squad will be dismissing early to travel to Charlotte and join other teams from NC, VA, SC, and GA to

    compete in this weekends 2016 Shamrock Basketball Tournament. Go Comets!

    Finally, please mark your calendars for our upcoming spring social and fundraiser event. Each year, we

    alternate between a full-scale gala (BASH) and a more-low key event. This year, we are planning a

    Casino Night to be held on Saturday, April 30. More information will be forthcoming from our Casino

    Night Committee led by Dean Edwards. In the meantime, please save the date for Saturday,

    April 30.

    In Christ love,

    Anne W. Knapke
