As the 2015-2016 school year draws to a close, I wanted to let you know about classes and staffing for the upcoming year.
We do have some faculty members who will be pursuing other paths in the coming year:
Mrs. Simpson needs to dedicate more time to her family and the care of her parents, so she will not be returning for Middle School Language Arts and Religion.
Miss Simpson is pursuing the music ministry with her group His Own, so she will not be returning as Kindergarten teacher.
Miss Teder will be pursuing a lifelong dream of working for Disney on their cruise lines, so she will not be returning as 1st grade teacher.
Ms. Collins will be with us in the coming school year, but not full-time. She will continue as Art teacher for all the grades and continue to cultivate the great program she has begun these last two years.
Mrs. Yankee will not be returning as Middle School Language Art and Religion, but will still be working with our school community as Director of Marketing and Communications.
There are also returning faculty who will be in new positions:
Ms. Latch will be returning as 2nd grade teacher and will be expanding her roll as Librarian as well.
Miss Daughtry will be moving up with her PreK 4 students as Kindergarten teacher for the coming school year.
Once again, we are excited to have Sr. Ignatius, O.P. returning with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program.
Our enrollment is steady, which means there will be combined homerooms in the coming school year.
2nd and 3rd grade will be combined for homeroom. These groups have a great dynamic with one another. 2nd grade will be with Ms. Latch for all Language Arts and Math. The two grades will also have separate Religion classes. This means they will be together for Social Studies/History and Science.
After consideration of the upper grades, it has been decided that 5th and 6th grade will be a combined homeroom for the upcoming school year.
The search process for new teaching candidates has been very fruitful with several highly qualified teachers. Once contracts have been completed, an announcement with information on new faculty members will be sent out.
As always I thank you for the support you give to me, our faculty, and school community. Change is never easy, but I am very excited about the bright future of St. Pius X Classical Academy.
Registration forms are still being accepted for the 2016-2017 school year. This is for all currently enrolled or new students. Please be sure to return the form with a $100 registration fee.
PreK: Wednesday, May 25th at 2:00 p.m. in the gym
We are excited to be partnering with French Toast as our new school uniform company. We hope you find this a more cost efficient option for your family. You may make your Spring Uniform selections at frenchtoast.com with school ID: QS5KFRU. With each uniform purchase, we receive cash back. Students may continue to wear their current uniform pieces.
Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness and Eucharistic worship. Our week-long Parish Summer Catechetical Program assist parents and parishes in the evangelizing and catechizing of their youth by supplementing the work they are already doing. The methodology, structure, content and enthusiasm of Totus Tuus is concerned not only with teaching the faith, but also igniting the hearts of the team members and young people they encounter. The result has been the formation of young adults who continue to dedicate themselves to the Church’s mission of evangelization.
The Totus Tuus Parish Program is designed for children entering first through twelfth grade in the 2016-17 school year. Children attending the parish program will learn about Prayer, the Our Father and the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. During the parish program, youth are encouraged to be clear and consistent in their Faith. They are shown how to view their Lord as a good Father. This personal relationship gives them the confidence to be Christ’s witnesses in the world around them. Finally, Totus Tuus strives to show the youth that a humble and courageous desire to know God must be based upon a steadfast and disciplined life of prayer combined with the reception of the sacraments
