Pius Junior X-Men Award

posted May 27, 2020, 2:51 PM by Jean-Paul Cloutier

The Jr X-Men Award is given to Grade 9 students who spend a minimum of 25 hours on at least two different activities in their first year at Pius. Students must participate in at least one club or extra-curricular activity and one athletic activity.

Who can apply for a Junior X-Men Award?

Any grade 9 student who meets the criteria above may apply. Awards for this year will be given out at next year’s Awards Ceremony.

How do I apply for the Junior X-Men Award?

  • Check the list of eligible activities below, and send an email to the lead teacher of every activity in which you participated this school year (2019-2020). 

  • In your email, ask your teacher or coach to fill out the Pius Junior X-Men Application form on your behalf. Pius staff members already have the link to the application form.

  •  If the person in charge of the activity or sport was not a Pius teacher (e.g. if your coach was a parent or someone from the outside community), you need to email the Pius staff member responsible for the activity. 

  • The deadline for submitting the application form is Wednesday June 17, 2020. Please do not wait until the last minute to contact teachers, since they are all very busy as we approach the end of the year. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email your teacher/coach or Mrs. Richardson (suzanne.richardson@ocsb.ca).
