Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update
From the Office of Principal
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Supporters of SWS,
This week we have our annual Fish Fry and next week is our annual Starry Night Event. The true quality of our school community shines during these two events. The school parents put forth their time and energy to make these events happen in style. Parents also show support by making donations, buying tickets, and working behind the scenes.
I have heard over and over throughout my years at SWS, that by participating in these two event, parents have gained benefits such as making a new adult friends, feeling a greater part of the community, and in knowing that their small role made a very big impact on the success of the school.
These events give parish members and general community members an opportunity to connect to the school too. People want to see the school remain vital in all areas. It is so wonderful to witness the outpouring of such generosity at all levels.
Thank you so much!

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)
