Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of the Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS:

The Handmade Market is this weekend. Be sure to carve out a few minutes to attend. We have 60 vendors ready to sell you their handmade products. Most of them are excellent gifts for your family and friends.  Also, this morning is a fun time to gather at the school and meet with others. We will have some breakfast treats and lunch for purchase. The coffee will be brewing as you browse.   Our School Parent Association runs this event with profits coming to us by renting the vendors their space and table for our event.  You can make it worth the time for the many vendors by coming to shop. (The SPA goal is to raise money to buy new clocks for the school.)

Kim Doyle, Principal

Psalm 86:11
Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart so that I may honor you.


Snowplow Showcase – TONIGHT
Monday, Oct. 23 from 5:30-7:00 PM

Wow! – Thinking Snow now?  Our city snow plows are ready to go with artwork on the plow blades done by our 6-8 grade students.  Come and see the plows and the artwork at our 2nd annual Snowplow Showcase.  This is a come-and-go event. Halloween decorations and a treat will be available. This event will take place outside in our back parking lot for all to see.

Kids will get a close-up look at the big snowplows. When the snow comes, everyone watches to see which blades pass by your home.
