Math “Paid to Work” Project:

Camp Hamilton:

Our next Bake Sale is set for Wednesday, March 29th! A Sign Up Genius email has been sent out. Please sign up to bring something if you are able. Remember to log your volunteer hours! Thank you!!!!

Thank you to April Morris and Carol Preuninger for organizing, shopping and making our delicious Camp Lunches on 2/24!! The numbers are not yet in, but we figure that about 60 lunches were served! The profit will be just under $300 for that lunch! Thank you to Stephanie Johnson, and Bruce Apostol for helping in the kitchen! Next Camp Lunch is Thursday, March 16th!

Brown Bear Car Wash Tickets are here!  Each 5th and 6th grader is asked to sell 16 Brown Bear Car Wash tickets.   They are good at any Brown Bear Car Wash. The regular price for a car wash is $10 - $14. People will be saving $3 in purchasing one from your child! If people want to upgrade to a more expensive wash, they can pay extra at the time they get their car washed.

An envelope containing these tickets has been given to your child. Tickets will be sold for $7 per ticket. Payments may be made with cash, or checks made out to, "St. Pius X School."

When tickets have been sold, please return the envelope containing the checks and cash to Mrs. Brown. If you are unable to sell the tickets, please return them to Ms. Creighton or Mrs. Van Hollebeke. We will find a buyer for them!

Our Hot Chocolate sale fundraiser will be on Monday, March 20th from 12noon to 12:40. A Sign Up Genius invitation has been sent for you to provide hot chocolate, cups, spoons, marshmallows. Please have this to the kitchen in the gym no later than 11:30am on 3/20/17. Thank you to Aster Yared and Hirut Gidey for heading this fundraiser!


Please send a water bottle to school with your child.  This will limit the number of times students are leaving class, missing instruction and work time as they get a drink from the fountain. Thank you!  Also, please make sure your child has a warm coat, hat, gloves for outdoor recess. Students are sent outside if it is not raining. Thank you!


  • I am checking planners on Fridays. Please initial your child’s planner on Thursday nights. Many students are forgetting to do this.
  • Sweatshirts/Sweaters need your child’s initials on the tag! Students are already misplacing them. Help us, to help your child find their missing sweatshirts!
