Extra-Curricular Activities

SPX-Extras-250pxExtra-curricular activities are an important extension of the mission at St. Pius X. Because God has blessed each one of our students with special gifts and talents, it is incumbent upon the school to provide students multiple opportunities to express these gifts. While our athletic program has garnered many accolades over the years, we strive to provide students non-athletic experiences as well. Here is just a sample of the extra-curricular activities we offer our students:

CYO Sports

  • Girls: kickball (3rd-8th), soccer (4th-8th), volleyball (4th-8th), basketball (4th-8th), cross country (4th-8th), track (4th-8th), softball (7th-8th), cheerleading (3rd-8th), lacrosse (5th-8th)
  • Boys: football (3rd-8th), basketball (4th-8th), baseball (7th-8th), soccer (4th-8th), cross country (4th-8th), track (4th-8th), wrestling (3rd-8th)
  • All sports teams enforce a “no cut” policy

SPX-tras

  • An after-school, “club” program designed to provide students with non-athletic opportunities such as scrabble, euchre, cooking, Mad Science, guitar and chess.

Other Non-athletic Opportunities

All School: Cub Scouts; Boy Scouts; Girl Scouts; after-school art classes and art show; hobby show; service projects; Spelling Bowl; chess club. 

Middle School Experiences: Geography Bee, Science Fair, and the Cathedral Soup Kitchen service outreach.

 

Student Leadership Opportunities

  • National Juniors Honors Society—the St. Pius X chapter recognizes the academic, leadership, citizenship and service contributions students make to the school and parish community.
  • Class Officers—8th grade students are eligible to serve in this role. Discernment is held during the 8th grade retreat at St. Meinrad.
  • Student Council - 8th Grade - 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
St. Pius X Community, want to help support the Heifer Project?  The Heifer Project is a fundraiser to help needy kids and villages in Kenya help support their families.  It helps raise money to buy cows, chickens, etc.  It is a really great project, and we hope we can do it and help others. You will be hearing more about this as we start bake sales and other ways to raise money.  Here is a link if you would like to learn more about the Heifer Project. www.heifer.org/beyond-hunger/feast-in-the-field
