Bolt - Parent Newsletter
The Counseling Office has been a whirlwind of activity. We have completed our senior interviews and continue to plan for the rest of the school year. We have a couple of events that are coming up that I would like to highlight. Our Apply to College Day, for seniors, will be held October 5 in the Pius X Library. If seniors have not, yet, applied to college, this is the day our school counselors have
About our Parent Newsletter
The BOLT newsletter is printed and mailed to each parent/guardian who requests a copy. Starting in the fall of 2021, all parents will receive a copy of the Summer and August issue. Adjustments may be made throughout this first trial year. Contact Communications@piusx.net for more information.
Everyone will receive our new monthly digital newsletter via email. Survey results indicated 60% of our responding parents do not want a printed newsletter, 20% want both printed and emailed, and another 20% want printed with no email. This email will be designed as easy to scroll through for a glance and click for more information on our website.
Other ways Pius X communicates to families include:
- Weekly principal email: Principal Terry Kathol will send a weekly email highlighting important events, updates and successes.
- Counseling Center email: Our counseling department will send occasional emails with important information about scholarships and other post-secondary information. These are mostly targeted toward seniors and occasionally juniors, too.
- Athletics and Activities: Coaches use various methods to communications with students and their families. Information for each sport or activity is provided by coaches and sponsors.
- Social Media: Pius X will share stories about our school via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. If you are so inclined, please like/follow any account you wish and help us share the good news about Pius X.
- Digital Calendars: Pius X is developing various calendars that enable you to subscribe to them, thus adding them to most commonly-used digital calendars (Google, iCal, Outlook, etc.). More information will be available on this initiative later this summer.
