Our school wide scripture theme for the 2021-2022 school year is “We are God’s masterpiece” from Ephesians 2:10. We created a photo mural of our students as a beautiful reminder that we are all God’s
masterpiece. Do we have everyone? You can still send in your child’s picture.

Our St. Pius X community loves cheering on our student athletes! Athletics provides a healthy way for children to compete and expend energy by working together toward a common goal. As our
community gathers to cheer on our teams; we can see leadership, commitment, and love of the game. Our athletes represent our school with class and grace. Come out and support our student athletes.
All game schedules can be found on our school website
Middle School Open House
It was a full house for our Middle School Open House. Parents rotated from class to class according to their child's grade level. Each teacher had 8 minutes to discuss a few broad strokes about her/his subject. Having the opportunity to sit in the classrooms where their children are learning and hear from their teacher helps everyone begin the 2021-2022 school year in a positive way! Your partnership with us is vital for your child's success and we are so grateful for your commitment.
