 CYO Track & Field –Boys and girls CYO track season is here.  If your child is in Grades 3-8 we encourage them to come out for track.  It is a great community building CYO event that unites all the St. Pius X population across all the grades.  Practice times will be determined soon.


NOTE:  3rd Grade participation will be based on the size of the 4th Grade boys and girls teams.  With 3rd Grade participants each team would be allowed a maximum of 8 members for a meet.  It has never been an issue in the past as we have always been able to have people participate so if they want to participate I encourage them to sign up. 


We will be having meets on the following dates:  (Locations and times to be posted later).

May 5:  Preliminary Meet

May 12:  Relay Meet

May 19:  Qualifying Meet

June 2:  Championship and All Comers Meet


Also, if you are interested in coaching, or have any questions, please contact Monte Kenaston ( or 425-218-8862).


 MAP Testing – Our Spring testing dates this year will be from April 30th – May 4th for Grades 2 – 5 and from May 7th – May 11th for Grades 6 – 8.  Please do not schedule any appointments during this time as it is difficult to make up a retest time.  To ensure that your child does good on


their tests please make sure that they are well rested and have eaten a nutrious breakfast.    MAP testing is a computerized assessment that replaced ITBS testing throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle.  As a result students, parents and teachers will receive immediate scores and be able to track student growth more effectively. 


Pancake Breakfast – Our last Pancake Breakfast is on Sunday, May 6th after the 9:00 & 11:00 AM Masses.  As always, we need your help in making this a fun and successful event.  Calling all parents who may not have met their Volunteer Hours yet to come and join us!  And even if you have given more than enough volunteer hours but just want to do more for our school – and hang out with a fun group of parents – come and help us cook, serve, clean up and enjoy our delicious Pancakes, Eggs & Sausages!  The Sign Up sheet is available online.  Please follow this link:


Raffle Tickets – Keep selling those Raffle tickets!!  Each student in required to sell 50 raffle tickets, maximum 100 raffle tickets per family.  Each ticket costs $1.00.  The monetary prize is 1st Prize - $1,000; 2nd Prize - $250 and 3rd Prize - $100.  This is one of our major fundraisers for the school.  The Raffle drawing will be held on Sunday, May 6th, 2018 at 1:00 PM.


Brown Bear Car Wash Tickets for sale! - Help support the 8th Graders! They are trying to raise money to offset the cost of their 8th Grade Retreat to Warm Beach in late May! Regular Brown Bear Car Wash tickets cost $10, but you can get them for $7! These would make great Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Gifts!   Please contact an 8th Grader to buy some tickets for your favorite driver! The tickets are good for one year and are honored at all Brown Bear Car Washes!


Naming the Library - It is an honor and privilege to recognize the Keen Family (the winners of last year's Auction item) in naming the library! For those who have noticed, the school library is now known as the "Library - In Memory of C. Milburn Keen". The Keen family will have this name for an entire year which will be until April 15th, 2019.  


A very special thank you to Monica, Nathan, CeCe, & Anbin Keen for making this wonderful Auction item truly special!


Sad Goodbyes - It is with great sadness that the following members of the St. Pius X School will be leaving us in conclusion of the school year.  Mrs. Kindell (4th Grade); Mr. Nacanayay (3rd Grade); Mrs. Morin (6th Grade/Middle School Science) and Mrs. Johnson (Pre-K Aid) will be moving on in order to pursue other opportunities. We wish them all best of luck and may God guide them in their next opportunity! 


I want to personally thank and honor Mrs. Kindell as she came out of retirement to once again assist this past school year! I am blessed to have worked with her and happy that she can enjoy a well-deserved, long-awaited retirement.  Our school will forever be grateful to your years of service.  God Bless you Kathy! You will be greatly missed!!!
