Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;
Wow! March is kind of a whirlwind month with all of the things that are taking place at SWS. From one event to the next, we move through this time of conferences, Stations of the Cross, fish fry, cardboard box city, family group activities in school, reconciliation, and now the Starry Night event.
There are definitely many balls that each of us juggles. The activity level does not take away from the one reason that we are a school. It is important to remember that we exist because of a mission to bring God into the lives of children and their families. We do this through prayer in Mass, throughout the day, and in other opportunities of our faith. We do this with traditional celebrations and practice. We do this by teaching and learning. We do this by passing on the fact the God loves us and loves our neighbor just as much. God is the one and only reason why we have a Catholic school and God definitely wants SWS to be here – just look at how He has infused your heaart to be so generous to help our school succeed.

Cardboard Box City
You will see a strange looking city develop on our front yard after school on Thursday. This will become our Cardboard Box City. This is an event that the 7th and 8th graders take part in every few years.
The city is a place where they will sleep but it is so much more than that. Stduents in grades 7 and 8 have been studying about homelessness. On this night they will eat a light supper, they will do projects in the gym all revolving around homelessness, they will listen to homelessness speakers and they will be given opportunities to learn more about what it means to be homeless. Then they will get tucked inside their box. They will be awakened early in the morning and expected to be ready for school.
Fish Fry Thank You
Awesome job to everyone who helped with our Fish Fry. More than 1600 meals were served indoors and with curbside pick-up. This is the biggest dinner that we have ever had.
A very special thanks to the committee:

Thanks to everyone else who sold tickets and bought tickets for this event.
