Weekly Office News – August – Back-to-School, 2022

Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

Oh my gosh! The excitement is building quickly around our school campus. The teachers are coming in to set up classrooms and prepare for the new school year. Everything is shiny and clean thanks to our maintenance team, Steve and Paul. The boxes of new supplies are fun surprises for the teachers to open. 

We look forward to having all of our students back in the building very soon.  To make this happen in the most helpful way, please be sure to do your part as a parent to fill out all of our documents. We know it is lots of work, but it truly helps make our transition back into school much easier. There are numerous links contained in this letter. Please follow though on all those that apply to your family.

See you soon!

Kim Doyle, Principal

When you listen, God Hears
When you trust, God Responds

Kids can run and play!

This event will take place indoors if weather is not good.
