Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update

From the Office of Principal
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,

This week we are very excited to showcase our school. We will have our special guest days on Thursday (preschool plus k-8) and Friday (Prek) where guests will join in for some fun, prayer and activities. We will also have our spring concert on Thursday.

These times are so special for our students because they can share with you a piece of their daily lives from a place that is a 2nd home to them throughout the school year.

If a special guest for K-8 students is staying for lunch, please be sure to order lunch ahead of time by sending in the reservation form or calling the school office.
