7th and 8th Grade Lady Cougars Vie for Championship TONIGHT!

Our 7th and 8th grade Lady Cougar Basketball Teams will both be competing in the finals of the Catholic League Tournament TONIGHT! We would love to have as many SPES fans there are possible to cheer for our girls. Wear your GREEN to show your Pius Spirit and come meet us at Cathedral Carmel at 6:30 p.m. for the 7th grade finals and 7:30 p.m. for the 8th grade finals. If you can't make it to the game but you know any of our basketball superstars, drop them a line or give them a call to wish them luck! Regardless of the final scores OUR GIRLS ARE WINNERS and we are proud of the way they have represented St. Pius Elementary School this season!

As we told you at the beginning of the school year, our desire is to offer SPES-approved "spirit shirts" that can be worn for spirit dress days for more than one year. We are also making a conscious effort not to "nickel and dime" you with event-specific shirts that can only be worn for one year. After much thought, prayer and design-work we are happy to present two design options which will be available in both long and short sleeve styles and multiple colors. These shirts will be "Spirit Dress Day-approved" for years to come. Since these are new introductions to our line of SPES spirit clothing, we will have additional opportunities, beginning Monday, February 22nd, for our students to wear their new SPES mission shirts with their uniform pants/skirts this spring. Due to technical difficulties, we have posted the designs for the shirts on Resource Documents on RenWeb. (NOTE: There will be no SPES Gala-themed shirts offered this year. The first two orders placed for the new mission shirts will be processed "in-house" then the shirts will be offered on the Online SPES Spirit Shop for your convenience.)
