Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of the Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

This is the Week! The Starry Night Event is always one of the favorite evenings for the school and those attending. It is so moving and special to see the bids coming in and the support for the school from so many people. Typically, we have over 300 people in attendance and many more bidding online from home.  Our guest list consists of approximately 1/3 of school parents, 1/3 of parish members connected to the school, and 1/3 who are guests of the others. The Starry Night is a necessary fundraiser to meet the current school year’s budgetary requirements and raise funds in a fund-a-need request for a special goal of the school. 

We thank everyone for pitching in with donations and support to make this night special for the attendees while meeting the goals. We are most appreciative in so many ways. Thank you to the event committee for jumping into this large job and making it wonderful. SWS is so lucky to have great people surrounding us.

Kim Doyle, Principal

Psalm 86:11
Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart so that I may honor you.
