Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
Turning the page on the calendar from March to April brought about a sense of freshness and hope for the months to come. Just as the Resurrection brings us a path to follow in hope, the days of spring also lead us to a path of warmth and sunshine. The chugging along that took place in the winter months and the stillness of Lent seems to be changing to leaps of joy as we move forward in the Easter season.
May our hearts be filled with the Resurrection celebration and the hope of all that is to come in our families, our school, our community, and in our world.
Pray Often, Work Hard, Trust God
Home and School request to SWS Pre-8 the parents!
Here is a link to ask questions or to download pictures/video. (see prior email for details)
Due no later than the end of this week! – April 9
Baby Bottle Project – is now over.
We are missing some of the bottles – please send them to school this week.
School Mass – protocol change
We are able to make a few changes to our Wednesday Mass. Class clusters are able to sit a bit closer to each other at this point allowing a few extra benches in the far back for parents of the class that plans the Mass.
If your child’s class is doing the planning you are welcome to come take a seat in the far back by the elevator entrance.
Recess – protocol change
Beginning on Monday, April 12….
Children in grades K,1,2,3 will be able to play in the same area of the playground and may cross-grade if they so desire to play a game. We see that we can add more socialization safely and this will be fun for the kids with the spring weather.
The same is true for grades 4,5,6.
Grade 7 will continue to have recess in their own space.
Grade 8 has extra Math class time (by design) instead of a recess time.
Singing – protocol change
We have been singing now for the past month in grades K-8. Students are allowed to lead the singing at the Mass that they are in charge of planning.
We are also super excited to be practicing for a spring concert. Mark your calendar for Monday, May 24.
At this point we do not know if it will be in church, in the gym, or outside. We do not know if we will limit admission to parents only. We do not know yet if we will have one or two shows and you will get assigned a time to attend. BUT – we are planing to have a concert and that is great news!
Library use – protocol change
Students will be allowed to go directly to the school library to check out books beginning this week. Books being returned from home will still be set aside for a time period and room sanitation will take place between groups.
