My name is Elias Vazquez, and I am the proud parent of three children currently attending St. Pius. I have also coached soccer and football at the school and found the experience rewarding, and I think that the kids had a great time as well. I have proposed that we organize a parent athletic booster association, just like most of the schools in the area as well as some of the Catholic schools. I think the boosters have a great opportunity to impact our children’s educational experience and I would like to share this with you. Please accept my invitation to our first meeting this coming Thursday, the 25th of February in the school library at 6:30PM. Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Thank you.
