May Newsletter for St. Pius X School
  • Welcome back! I hope that everyones Easter was peaceful and renewing. With the end of the 3rd quarter, the slightly warmer days, and the end of the N.Y.S. Assessments for our 3rd-8th graders, I sense that our students are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Still, there is much work to be done here at school.

    May is a very busy time for us. We start with a school Mass at 9:00 a.m. on the 1st. Our Pre-Ks and kindergar-tens will perform at their spring concert on Thursday the 2nd. And on Saturday, May 4th, our 2nd graders will re-ceive their First Holy Communion. This is always a very special day for our children, their families and our school.

    May 6th is the start of National Teachers Appreciation Week. I would like to be the first to thank all of our

    teachers and assistants for their hard work and dedication again this year. Each day, your children receive the blessing of being with talented teachers who work extremely hard on their behalf. In addition to mathematics, science, reading, social studies and such, each day our faculty dedicates time to pray with your children, share the Gospel message, and help form them in their faith.

    We come together with our entire parish community on May 9th for Ascension Thursday Mass. We hope you can join us. The following week, at 10:00 a.m. on the 15th., we will Crown our blessed Mother Mary, which is always a special occasion for our school community. The next evening our 1st and 2nd graders will be on stage for their spring concert, which starts at 6:30 p.m.

    One of the most important days of the year for our school is Friday, May 17th. Please get rested for our Race for Education, when our students have fun racing around our athletic fields as they raise money to support

    our school and its on-going mission. Dont forget to bring your camera and sneakers! Have a safe and blessed spring!

    Yours in Christ,

  • Through your generosity, we were able to present a check for $1,350.00 to the Please Remember Me project in memory of

    our fallen veterans and those who still serve. Mr. Tom Regan, the representative from that project, was overwhelmed by our schools gift, and he asked me to thank all of you for honoring

    those who serve. Together, we will continue to pray for world peace.

    Earth Day!

    Genesis 1:1-31

    In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and

    darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

    And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. And God saw the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the

    first day.

  • I will be sending physical and immunization forms home

    with report cards for NEXT YEARS required physicals and

    immunizations in order for parents to have these forms as

    they make doctors appointments.

    PHYSICALS New York State Education Law requires that each student receive a physi-

    cal when entering a school district for the first time and again in grades K,

    2, 4, and 7. Any physical exam during the twelve months prior to the com-

    mencement of the school year that the physical is required in is acceptable.


    forms are not required at this time. If your child has a physical scheduled

    this spring, physical forms can be turned in ANYTIME before the end of

    the school year or during the summer. Please mark correspondence to the

    attention of the school nurse. If your child receives medication at school, a

    new written doctors order and parent permission is needed each year and

    can be obtained in the spring but have the doctor write that the order is for

    the next school year.


    All incoming 6th graders who are 11 years old need to have proof of Tdap

    (tetanus, diptheria, acellular pertussis) immunization, as required by

    New York State, PRIOR to entering school in September. 10-year-old

    students who are entering 6th grade will not be required to receive Tdap

    vaccine but will be tracked by the school nurse and must be immunized

    when they turn 11 years old.

    Please turn in any health related paperwork directly to the health office.

    Please call the health office with any concerns or questions.
