Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
I would like to give a huge thank you to everyone for a very successful Starry Night Event.
Donors of cash and of all the wonderful items to bid on
A huge thanks to the parents who spent hours volunteering on the Starry Night Committee, who were the creative forces behind our promotional materials, videos, games, baskets, and much more.
I also wish to publically thank DalekoArts Theatre in New Prague for producing an amazing live show for us on Saturday as a donation to our event. Their generosity is amazing.
If you liked their show and their trivia, then log in and join them on Thursday evenings. I know that I could not stop laughing! https://dalekoarts.com/
The entire community truly came together for our benefit. Thank you so so much!
Kim Doyle, Principal

Peace of Mind Parent Sessions for March
Helping your Struggling Learner – for Parents
Join over 100 Catholic School Parents from accross the Archdiocese
Free parenting webinar sessions
When our children struggle in school, it is hard to know when to be firm and when to be flexible. Should we intervene early and structure the environment for success or should we view learning as developmental and expect all of our children to advance at different speeds? Should we give our kids consequences for poor grades or can we “pay” them to get A’s? How do we know when poor school achievement is something more serious than low motivation? In this session you will learn research-based strategies for helping struggling learners no matter the cause of the struggle. You will also learn signs of more serious learning issues and how to help your child thrive in school.
