See you this Saturday at Skate Night~

Skate nights at the St. Pius X roller rink have been a part of our parish for many years. If you are looking for a fun, family activity, join us at one of our 5 yearly events held at St. Pius Parish gym. There is a DJ, pizza, and of course, lots of skating. Skates are available to rent ($5.00 admission) or bring your own ($4.00 admission.) Additionally, there are opportunities to host your own personal party.

Skate nights are a fundraiser for our school. We are asking every family to sign up for 1 to 2 shifts this year. If you haven't volunteered in the past, we are happy to let you know what you need to do for any of these items.

Dia de los Muertos, All Saints' Day, & Halloween~

We are preparing our ofrenda (offering) para el día de los muertos (Day of the Dead). Students are welcome to bring in photos or tokens of remembrance of their beloved, departed relatives to put on the altar, along with flowers, candles, and other decorations. The altar will remain up through Friday, November 4th. We will be sure to return these items to students in good care. Be sure to check it out and say a prayer during conferences. It will be right outside the main office.

We will also be celebrating All Saints' Day with a school mass at 9:30 am on Tuesday, November 1st. This will take the place of our Weds. mass. All are welcome to join us to pray and enjoy the first graders who will be dressed up like their favorite saint.

On Monday, Oct. 31st (Halloween), students are encouraged to come to school in their Halloween costumes (school appropriate of course) for our Halloween Parade which takes place outside around the block. You will receive separate information from your child's classroom teacher as to whether or not there will be a classroom party.
