This year’s theme is Planting Seeds of Success.  We want to recognize and celebrate everyone at St. Pius X / St. Leo School and all the ways we grow together.  To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.   Our teachers, staff, and parents plant seeds of success with our students each and every day.

The Fall Fundraiser is a casual, fun-filled gathering filled with ways to support SPSL. There will be student-created Classroom Gifts for purchase, Sign-Up Parties, Raffles, family focused trips, and incredible prizes in the Live and Silent Auctions,  Per popular demand, the Wheel Barrel of Whiskey and Wine Pull will also be back!

We hope all families can contribute and participate in some way.  Being involved and attending the Fall Fundraiser is a wonderful way to meet great people, make new friends, and celebrate the SPSL spirit and community! Please join us in helping our garden bloom! 

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

In gratitude,

Heidi & Kevin Berthelsen (Emily 8th grade, Kate 5th grade, and Anna 2nd grade)
