Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;
It’s crunch time everyone! This time of year is critical for the school. Teachers are very busy trying to fit in all of the learning goals that we have for the class and for each child. We have the results of our winter NWEA tests and we are sorting through these now finding where kids need more help and adjusting our teaching. This is most important.
On another important note, we are in crunch time for our fundraisers. Consider helping with the Starry Night and the Fish Fry. They both are coming up so quickly and we appreciate all of the help we can get.
Be sure to sell your fish fry tickets or plan to use them. All of us have a lonely neighbor who would enjoy a fish dinner. Pick it up and deliver it to them. You have to buy the tickets anyway so let’s also be a kind and caring comunity with great outreach during this upcoming lenten season.
It is time to register for the Starry Night. We want to “fill the house” for a fun evening. We have amazing items to bid on too. Come alone or with others. You will fit in! It is a casual night and you’ll surely make new friends. Blue jeans and Bling is the attire. Dress down or dress it up or just come as you wish. Lots of laughs are sure to be had and you’ll love the all-you-can-eat buffet.
