Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
We have nine more very exciting days here at school. There are many activities both on school property and off. All of our grade levels are enjoying their “class wish treats” thanks to our Starry Night donors. There are also a number of other field trips and fun activities taking place. All parents are welcome to join us at Memorial Park on the final day of school. We will have lunch/play from 12:00 – 1:45 or so.
We have a few fun events remaining for our adults. Sign up for our golf tournament on June 11. You do not need to be a regular golfer to join in. It is a fun day for all. Our Pot-o-gold is also an important fundraiser to look forward in anticipation of winning $20,000.
During the summer, I highly encourage the adults in our school commuity to plan and participate in any social event that brings our people together. A full year has passed with litlle to no interaction of the adults. This is what made SWS special and unique in past years – that feeling of school family! Let’s all work to bring that aspect back to our school for the year ahead.
