At St. Pius Elementary School, parents and grandparents, as well as business partners in the Lafayette community, support our students in all that they do!  Whether it is through a gift to "The SPES Fund," annual giving campaign or a memorial gift to the David Eugene Lemaire Memorial fund, those who believe in the school's mission can make a gift to show their support of the mission of St. Pius as we continue to provide a superior education centered in the Eucharist.   

The support of those who believe in "THE SPES WAY" continues to help our students grow as they learn what it means to bring the presence of Christ to others.  If you are interested in making a gift to one of the efforts that touches the lives of our SPES students, click below on the "Make a Donation" button.  You will be walked through the online giving process.  Gifts made in memory of a person are acknowledged both to the donor and to the family of the loved one being memorialized Gifts made in honor of a teacher, staff member or on the occasion of a loved one's birthday or anniversary, will be acknowledged to the donor and to the person(s) being honored.

The David Eugene Lemaire Memorial Fund

The St. Pius Elementary School Faculty and Staff established the David Eugene Lemaire Memorial Fund
in memory of former SPES student, and nephew of
SPES Principal, Donna Lemaire.
David left this life on July 31st after suffering complications from the corona virus.  David will always be remembered for his smile, joie de vivre, giving spirit, love and care of others and for being a bright light to all whom he met.  This fund will be a way for David's spirit to be kept alive as it helps families in times of crisis with tuition.  
Everyone who knew David knew that he was always there to help his friends in their time of need and the faculty and staff of St. Pius feel this is a fitting tribute that will continue to give throughout the years.
