The students of St. Pius X Middle School must complete service hours as a part of their religion requirement. On the St. Pius X School website a form can be found which must be submitted for each service activity that the child has completed. Go to the top line and click parents, scroll down to parent resources and click, scroll down to MS service-hour-form and print the form. For each activity, the student completes a form must be filled out and can be turned in anytime between now and May 1st. Please read further information about this on the MS syllabus found on the SPX website by clicking on the staff directory and selecting Cecilia Fincher. Forms do not have to be turned in for service club activities, as I record that information during the meeting.
Service Club meetings will be held on Tuesdays throughout the year from 3:00-4:15. The specific Tuesdays will be announced each month since we do projects as they come up and need to be done. There will be two Tuesdays a month for activities, students must select to be in group 1 or group 2.
