 Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update

From the Office of Principal 


 We celebrate our wonderful school with Catholic School’s Week. This special week begins on Sunday, January 27. Please come to one of the Sunday Masses with your kids. (8:30 or 10:30 Masses) Wear any SWS spirit wear and have your kids wear their uniforms (K-6) or any red spirit wear item.


After Mass join all families for a pancake breakfast provided by the Knights of Columbus. It is a free will offering and 100% of the profit will go to the school.


The book fair will be taking place in the PAC and also the school will be open for new families and any parish members who wish to take a peek around the school.
