Appeal helps St. Pius High School to thrive

St. Pius X High School seniors Jenny Ellmer, Kathryn Chamberlain and Shannon Welsh ate lunch at school April 15. A catchphrase of the school is “no one sits alone at lunch,” a characteristic of the “St. Pius Way.” A grant from the Annual Catholic Appeal helps the school thrive.

There are no bells rung signaling the start of school, between classes or at any other point in the school day at St. Pius X High School in Festus.

Students move along as they need, causing no ruckus, intimidating no one -- in a relaxed manner.

It may not be the Hollywood version of school or even typical, but it is "The St. Pius Way."

That phrase was coined by former St. Pius X High School secretary Carol Schmidt in a speech at a school graduation.
