Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;
We have so much to look forward to in the weeks ahead. We will celebrate for an entire week for Catholic Schools Week beginning on January 30. This celebration takes place each year throughout the country with thousands of Catholic School students, parents, and staff members.
There are 5981 Catholic Schools similar to our school in the USA. We are all different but share the same goal to teach academics while also teaching our faith beliefs and practices to our students. Catholic Schools are not just schools, we are a way of life. God is incorporated so deeply into our existence and into every decision that we make for the growth, health and well being of all who connect with us. All of our work is intentional for growing in the Glory of God. How cool is that? A reason to celebrate!
