YOU helped us raise over $150,000 and we are able to renovate our playground area. Construction begins May of 2022!!
Did you know.....
In our country, only 8 states require elementary schools to provide daily recess. Only 35% of elementary schools have 6th-8th grade students participate in regularly scheduled recess.
Since the mid-2000s, up to 40% of school districts across the nation reduced or CUT recess.
Here at St. Pius X, we are very proud to have 100% of our student body, PreK 3 year old through 8th grade, are able to participate in daily recess! Which directly affects their academic achievement and social & emotional outcomes!
The 2020 "Parents Just Wanna Have Fun" Auction proceeds are aiming to enhance our students' recess time, starting with the addition of 2 Gaga Ball Pits in October of 2019, with plans to update our playground area in 2022.
