Book Club
Grades 2 and 3
Moderators: Karen Neitzey and Caitlin Cavanagh

The St. Pius X 2nd and 3rd grade Book Club meets once per month. We begin with a prayer, eat a snack provided by parents, complete an activity, and discuss the book. The prayer, snack, activity and discussion all relate to the story in some way. Most books are part of a series so that if a student enjoys the book, they may want to read others in the series! Contact Mrs. Neitzey at or Miss Cavanagh at
Book Club
Grades 4 and 5
Moderators: Mrs. Reimer, Mrs. Schwartzmeyer, and Mrs. McLane

Chorus, Grades 5-8, Fridays after school

This is the general Chorus. We rehearse every week and put on concerts for the school and for parents twice a year, at Christmas and in the Spring. We usually have about 70 members.

This year we plan to once again accept the invitation to march in the Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in Washington DC in April. We will join approximately 600 other kids from around the country and march as one big youth chorus, stopping to sing together at two or three places along the route. It's very exciting for us all.

Honors Chorus, Wednesday mornings at 7:30

Honors Chorus is an audition group. Only 20 chorus students are in the Honors Chorus. Honors represent the St. Pius School and chorus at events when the general chorus would be too large, such as school assemblies and special events like the Catholic Schools Open House. Occasionally, Honors is invited to sing outside the school, too, and they represent SPX beautifully every time.

Honors also fill in to help the Liturgical Choir when there is a need for more voices at our all-school masses.

Liturgical Choir, Thursday mornings at 7:30

Liturgical Choir is made up primarily of 8th graders, with a few Honors Chorus members supporting when necessary. We usually have about 15 members. This group sings at the all-school masses and for any other liturgical events where needed. This is a ministry, as opposed to a performance group, and the students involved serve the school in a wonderful way, by leading their fellow students in prayer through song.
Green Team
Grades 3, 4, & 5
The SPX Green Team is a collaboration of students and parent volunteers who promote environmental stewardship through educational awareness and eco-friendly initiatives. A few ongoing initiatives include recycling crayons, markers, paper, and printer cartridges. For more information, please check NewsNotes.
Life 101 Club

Spanish Club
Grades 7 and 8
Moderator: Judy Prendergast

The Spanish Club is open to all 7th and 8th grade students. It will meet once a month from 3:00-3:45pm. This year's meeting date is tentatively scheduled for the second Thursday of each month. Students will work on various craft projects that reflect the different cultures and customs of Spanish speaking countries. They will enjoy a snack at each meeting as well as the company of their fellow students. There is a $7.00 activity fee used to purchase all supplies and snacks. This club has limited seating.
Spanish Class
Teacher: Rebecca Estrada

For the 12th straight year, Rebecca Estrada will be offering after-school Spanish classes for children at St. Pius X. She is excited to announce the continuation of this program. It is offered to students of St. Pius in kindergarten.
The purpose of this after-school language enrichment program is to introduce the students to Spanish in a fun way. The students learn bilingual and Spanish songs, play interactive games using the target language, hear bilingual stories, watch short Spanish or bilingual video clips, and do carefully designed worksheets to support the themes being taught.
When does it meet? On Mondays from 3:00 pm – 3:45 pm in the SG1/Tami Liberati classroom.
How do I register my child? The registration forms are being sent home today in the Thursday envelope to all students in Kindergarten. Additional forms can be found at the front desk and on the school Portal Plus. Students should register by Thursday, September 22nd, by sending in the registration form, along with the first semester payment, to their child’s homeroom teacher. Mark the envelope “After-School Spanish.”
Be sure to send your registration in quickly, as classes will begin the week of September 26th. If you have any questions about the class, you may contact Rebecca Estrada by e-mail at
