Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update
From the Office of Principal
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Supporters of SWS,
A very large thank you to everyone who worked so hard on the fish fry last week. It was a wonderful success. We have been hearing many comments about the quality of our food and the set up. We are getting quite a good fish fry reputation in this “community of many fish fry events”. Thanks to those who sold tickets or gave them away to those in need. Many people walked away happy with full tummies.
The largest event of the entire school year takes place this weekend with our Starry Night Event. It is a wonderful party that helps the school raise the funds needed to move forward. We definitely need everyone to jump in to help if you are able. Most people enjoy being a part of this event from decorating, to donating, to attending. We hope you can join us.

Smile Network Collections
We have had trouble connecting to our Smile Network with all of the snow days. We ask students to bring coins in for this great cause. We have also made the blankets to donate for the babies. We will be inviting a member of the Smile Network to pick all of this up soon. Let’s give it one more push so that we have a nice donation for this organization. Send your change to school with your children. (They love the Plinko machine)
