Wauwatosa Catholic will be the first Catholic International Baccalaureate K3 to 8th grade school in this area. It is a new school opening in the fall of 2011, sponsored by St. Pius X and St. Bernard Parishes. This blog will update the community on its newest school. Visit www.wauwatosacatholic.org for more information.
Both St. Pius X Grade School and St. Bernard Parish School closed their doors this week. After serving the community for decades, students, parents, and parishioners rejoiced, gave thanks for the past, and shed a few tears while saying goodbye and praying for the future.
Both schools celebrated the final All-School Mass at their respective church.
Students in both schools also look ahead to the future as a joint collaboration, Wauwatosa Catholic School. Enrollment is nearing 150 students, and it is growing daily. The next "First" Mass will be the first All-School Mass during the first week of school at Wauwatosa Catholic School in September.
While prayers and good wishes were offered for all involved throughout all the years as parish schools, friends said "thank you", "good luck", and "goodbye." "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold."
