Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
We are so thankful for the outpouring of support for our school and for our parish. Due to the incredible work of the school community in raising funds through the recent Fish Fry Dinner and Starry Night Auction, we have been able to maintain our school cashflow for this month. The parish contributions and financial participation has also taken a very generous turn upward allowing the parish to contiue to operate as best as possible for the time being and that includes the parish support for the school. Our parish was also approved for the small business loan offered by the government due to COVID-19. We have been able to reinstitute regular salaries for our staff through the end of our school year. This is wonderful news for all employees of St. Wenceslaus.
Thank you for your support and prayers!
Let us pray that the situation in our world, in our country and especially in our state continues to improve. We have so many plans and would like to get back into our school building soon so that we can continue with all of our wonderful school programs.
Quote from SWS students to the principal:
“We will never complain about going to school again.”
