We hope you have received information in the mail regarding the Warrior Pride Capital Campaign. Thank you very much to those of you who have already made a gift or pledge. If you haven't already, please take some time to review the information and prayerfully consider supporting the Campaign. Our goal is to get 100% participation from our SPX Parents. To date, we have received just over $4.3 Million in gifts or pledges. We are so thankful for the generosity and support of our entire community and excited for the opportunities that this project will offer our students!! If you have any questions about the Campaign, please contact Melanie Martin at 453-3450 x115 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Citizens Bank & Trust partners with St. Pius X's Personal Finance Classes, presenting Financial Literacy Courses throughout the school year.

Snow Day/School Closing Notification
We use an automated telephone broadcasting system to communicate school closings to you. For snow days, the call will be launched between 5:30 - 6:30 a.m., or the night before if we know ahead of time. The numbers you have listed in My Student's Progress as home and mobile will be called through the automated system. We will also post messages on our social media accounts and website as well.
Please call Kerri O'Malley at email@example.com if you would like to change the number(s) listed in the My Student's Progress School Database.
St. Pius X will also announce its school closings over the television. The school closing is phoned into Channel 9. Channel 9 then distributes the information to the other local channels. Please look for “St. Pius X High School” when bad weather occurs. Some local channels have not always been reliable in the past. If you are unsure, check the website www.stpiusxhs-kc.com the notification will be on the homepage.
SPX PARENTS ANNUAL CONCESSION OBLIGATION
St. Pius X requires each family to work one concession shift per school year. Each family is assigned one shift (either on the Fall or Winter schedule) no matter if your student plays a sport or not. Only one parent is required to attend (or another adult in the family, grandparent, aunt, uncle,etc).
Your student is NOT elgible to take your shift.
The Fall schedule is available on the SPX website under the Parent's Association tab.
The Winter Schedule is now available.
Please contact Jenny Vutich, Parents Association Concession Scheduler, if you have any questions regarding your concession obligation at 935-6923 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Many times we are in need of photos of students playing sports, participating in extra-curricular activities, service projects or other school activities throughout the school year. Since many parents take photos of their kids at these activities, we often come to you to seek extra photos when we need them for publications. To make this process easier, we have created a photo sharing site: spxkc.smugmug.com
We encourage parents who take photos at games to upload them onto this site for sharing. Please email Melanie at email@example.com to receive an upload link if you are willing to share your photos.
In addition, smugmug allows photo ordering, so any parent can view the site and order photos they may want that others took. Our hope is that this will make photo sharing easy for our community.
