“Let Your Light Shine” was the message Fr. Craig delivered in his homily at our first all school mass of the year. So, we must be “shining lights” for those around us.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” ~Matthew 5:16
Our Mission Statement: St. Pius X/St. Leo School is a diverse community forming students in the Catholic Faith to excel in academics and service to others.
On Mission Day, the whole school focuses on serving others, as stated in our Mission Statement. The 4th graders and PreKindergarteners collected donations for refugees from Afghanistan. They listened to Tom and Margaret Hoarty teach them about what refugees are, the struggles they face, and how we can be of service to them to follow Jesus when he said, “When I was a stranger, you welcomed me.”
The two grade levels then got together to draw and color “Welcoming Cards” for the refugees from Afghanistan. After school the cards and donations were delivered for those refugees in need.
This year is my 31st year of teaching at SPSL, initially teaching 6th grade for 5 years, and now teaching 4th grade for 26 years. The whole experience has flown by! I initially graduated from UNL with a bachelor's degree in Journalism and my teaching certificate. I have earned my master's degree in Reading from UNO and was awarded the Archdiocesan Educator of the Year in 2014. Welcome to my website. It's a window into the fun and learning that occurs in 4D.
