February is "I Love to Read" month. In this photo Mr. Valentine came to read to these St. Pius X second graders as a mystery reader. We will be having several different readers through February.
Today is the 100th day of school - our kindergarteners at St. Pius X decided to dress up as if they are 100 years old. They had alot of fun today.

St. John students participated in the "Adopt a Family" service project during Advent. This project focuses on families that "slip through the net" of programs that are available in the community. Students bring in gift cards for food, clothing, and gasoline. They also bring in toiletries such as brushes, shampoo, toothbrushes and many other items that some of us take for granted. Jesus is truly alive in the children and adults of St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X Catholic School and the entire Rochester Catholic Schools Community.
