The Student Learning Expectations encourage students to integrate Catholic values by participating in faith experiences at school, home, and in parish life. Teaching and learning take place in a multitude of ways. Catholic values are incorporated into numerous activities supported by St. Pius X Catholic School. At designated Masses during the month, students participate as altar servers, readers, gift bearers and members of the student choir. Students participate at First Friday and Holy Day Masses, Sacrament of Reconciliation, Stations of the Cross, and Community Prayer. They give service or donate their talent, time, and treasure to Lazarus House Food Service, Food Drives for St. Vincent de Paul, next Step Pregnancy Services (Angelorum) Baby Clothes Drive, and Hope Grams for emergency relief.
Students follow the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ through a variety of service projects. In the Fall and Spring, students collect food for St. Vincent de Paul and during the Advent season students collect baby clothes for Next Step Pregnancy Services (Angelorum) and send Christmas cards to our service men and women. In addition, fourth through sixth grades visit a local nursing home to sing carols during the Halloween and Christmas seasons. Throughout the year, students work with St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Pius X to make sandwiches for homeless men at the Lazarus House. For victims of the Japanese earthquakes and local flood disasters, fifth and sixth grades sold Hope-Grams to the school and parish. The money collected was sent to Catholic Relief Services and the American Red Cross. During the school year, additional service projects are adopted to give back to the community. This demonstrates commitment to active participation in faith life, discipleship and service.
