High school students from St. Pius X read books to elementary students from St. Rose of Lima Catholic School earlier this month as part of the schools’ first Holiday Book Soiree.
Fifty youngsters from St. Rose of Lima visted the library at St. Pius X, where first graders competed to see who could best decorate sweater name tags. The elementary students also played holiday bingo with STEM prizes and watched “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” while eating their sack lunches.
Eighteen St. Pius X students read to the kids from St. Rose of Lima. The high school at 811 W. Donovan St. also donated 85 books to the students and faculty at St. Rose of Lima, located at 3600 Brinkman St. in Garden Oaks.
