Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;
Things are going to be getting pretty exciting around school this week. Our wonderful fish fry committee will be setting up for Friday. This is an event that is for the entire community. Our fish must have a secret recipe! People love eating here and supporting this event and return year after year. Don’t waste your tickets! Think about delivering a fish lunch or dinner to an elderly neighbor or a friend with babies in the home who find it hard to get out.
We are also coming down to the final planning days for our Starry Night. This event will feature some wonderful art that has been made with every student participating. You’ll love competing for these items that are one-of-a-kind. You will be amazed when you see them and you will want to bid on the one made by your child or the class that your child is a part of!
We truly appreciate your support with both of these events! Stay alert to future emails on fun details.
Kim Doyle, Principal
