We, at St. Pius X-St. Matthias Academy, consider it a privilege to work with parents in the education of their children because we believe parents are the primary educators of their children; "Parents are the first and most important educators of their own children, and they also possess a fundamental competence in this area: they are educators because they are parents." (1994 Letter to Families Pope John Paul II). Therefore, it is your right and your duty to become the primary role models for the development of your child's life-physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically. Your choice of St. Pius X-St. Matthias Academy involves a commitment and exhibits a concern for helping your teenager to recognize God as the greatest good in their life.
Faith Reflection for the week:
This will be the last weekly phone call as we conclude our 2016-17 school year. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your partnership in helping to form your teenagers with a Catholic education at PMA. It has been a true blessing to serve each one of our students and families. On behalf of our board, administration, faculty and staff, we wish you a restful summer vacation and we look forward to serving you and your family in summer school and in the new school year. ON this feast of Pentecost, please take a moment to join in me in prayer of thanksgiving as we pray:
Christ, Teacher and Lord, bless all in our school as we seek to end our year with the grace you so generously provide. We give thanks for the students, and the faculty, the administrators, and all who have contributed
to this year of nurturing and growth. We affirm all the positive moments, of insight, of the excitement of learning, of accomplishment, of creativity, of laughter, of a sense of community.
We recognize the times of struggle, of difficult work, of misunderstanding, even of failure--we give these
to you for transformation, so they can become seeds that will find fertile soil. As we leave for the summer, may we take with us the knowledge that You will keep us all in your embrace so we may rest and be restored and so we can continue in the ongoing discovery of your Love. We make this prayer in your most Holy Name. Amen.
