Welcome Letter from Religious Education
Welcome to the 2016-2017 Religious Education Program of the Church of St. Pius X! Our Program is dedicated to assisting you with the religious education of your child. You, as the primary educator of your child, are his/her best teacher. The example you set when your family prays together, attends Mass together, participates in the Sacraments together and engages in community service together is fundamental to your child’s religious formation.
On the first day of class every student will be given a Finding God textbook. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this wonderful learning tool. It explains Catholic faith concepts in age appropriate language, reinforces the lessons with activities and scripture stories and connects faith concepts to life experiences in the Church and family. Each chapter closes with a summary of the lesson and provides activities and suggestions for ways your family can “make a difference”.
The Church of Saint Pius X is committed to providing a safe environment for all our students. Please read the program guidelines and keep them handy for future reference. The attendance requirements are listed under the Program Guidelines. Please check the Parish’s Weekly Bulletin and the Parish website at http://www.saintpiusxchurch.com for “C.C.D. News” and watch for information your child brings home from class.
Please feel free to visit your child’s classroom at any time and get to know his/her teacher. Our staff is looking forward to another rewarding year!

Please note that the St. Pius X Religious Education Program follows the Scarsdale School Calendar and the Scarsdale School District weather and emergency closings schedules.
If for any reason the Scarsdale Schools are closed due to inclement weather conditions, the Religious Education Program will close as well. If the Scarsdale schools have delayed start it will not affect our program. If Scarsdale Schools cancel after-school activities due to weather or emergency closing we will automatically close. We will announce closings on WFAS radio or channel 12 News TV. Please remember that it is always a parent’s choice to keep a child home due to bad weather.
