Transitioning Into "Big School"
At St. Pius, we help our students grow academically, spiritually, socially, emotionally and assist them in preparing for the "real world." We provide them with all the tools they will need to move on to high school and beyond.
As our youngest students begin their educational journey at St. Pius, we want them to have all the tools necessary for the big step into "big school!" Below are a number of resources parents can use to help their little ones prepare for, and transition into, PreK or Kindergarten.
