PSA Services and Committees
PSA Newsletter and Bulletin Board
The PSA posts their upcoming events, fundraisers and information in the weekly publication of the Bulldog Bulletin that is published by the school. A proposed "year at a glance" informational newsletter is included in the school's summer mailing to parents of St. Pius X. The PSA bulletin board is located in the main hallway of the school. It is updated monthly providing details for upcoming PSA-sponsored events and volunteer requests.

CAP COM's School Banking Program (Youth Savings) allows students to make deposits at school during the school each week. Periodically, bankers receive incentive prizes when they bank and bankers can earn bonus money for every report card submitted and throughout the year through their various Reading Programs.
Volunteers and committees support the many functions planned by the school throughout the year. Some give new students and their families information, support and guidance as they navigate the new school year, while others thank the school's faculty for the effort they expend in educating our children. The foundation of the PSA is based upon a parent's dedication to volunteer and ensure a positive educational experience not only for his or her child but the St. Pius X student body.
