The Class of 2014

The Class of 2014

We offer our prayers for a bright future to the St. Pius V School graduating class of 2014. These students have worked hard and accomplished great things already. Soon they will begin their journeys through high school, college and beyond.

“The path we choose for the next eight years — high school and college —- may not be easy,” said graduating 8th grade student Madalyn Torres, “but we should not give up. For what we put into our education will help us to make our career.”

The graduates will attend some of the city’s top high schools, including St. Ignatius College Prep, Whitney Young, De La Salle, Holy Trinity, UIC College Prep, and Our Lady of Tepeyac, among others. Congratulations, Class of 2014! We are proud of you.

Goodbye and God bless, Ms. Lucarelli!

It is a critical age and she is the best at capturing young minds and getting them excited about learning, we are grateful for her service.”
