St. Pius Elementary School

St. Pius is a Catholic Elementary School centered in the Eucharist, bringing the presence of Christ to others.
The St. Pius community serves our students and families by radiating hope, pursuing academic excellence, valuing a love of learning and living the Catholic Faith as leaders in ministry and service.
We call on each other to live a life of selflessness, humility and generosity in imitation of our patron, St. Pius X. St. Pius Elementary School is dedicated to the Church's mission to teach the Gospel and to proclaim that Jesus is Lord.
The entire staff seeks to foster the realization that God's love makes each person in the school community priceless, and it believes that each is gifted with power and responsibility to nurture in others this same realization.
The mission of St. Pius also includes leading young minds to see the relevance of the Gospel in their daily lives.
It is this integration of religious truth and values with life which distinguishes the Catholic school from other schools.
