Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
May is here, our final month of school. It is quite amazing that the 20-21school year has gone by so quickly and that we are finishing so nicely. As a staff we feel that our students really have grown leaps and bounds by being in their seats and in person. Although difficult at times to navigate all of the rules, we believe that our educational standards and goals have been met or will be met by the end of May.
We work to develop the body, mind and souls of our students. We are seeing studious kids who are even more appreciative of some of the little things that they took for granted in past years. We see kids who are participating in their faith development and we are fostering the growth of their souls as a priority for our wonderful Catholic school.
Pray Often, Work Hard, Trust God
