Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update

From the Office of Principal
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,

We are entering our last full week of school for the 2018-19 year. This week brings us a sense of satisfaction for all that has been accomplished and anticipation with all that there still is to learn. We can never really end with our journey in education.

The break from school, however, is much needed for our students, families, and staff members. The summer gives all of us a chance to energize and to grow in different skills that can be obtained outside, with friends, with families, and through traveling.

This week we will graduate our preschool students, and next week we will graduate our 8th graders. To those who are moving on, we thank for their time with us. We thank all families for sharing their children with us and for being an integral part of SWS. We hope all of our families and staff have a wonderful summer.

NO Uniforms beginning on Thursday, May 23
(last 5 days of school)

Please wash and sort your uniforms during the last week. Bring any used uniforms that you would like to donate to school. We will put these in our used uniform cabinets and they will be ready for fall.
