Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of the Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS:
Living amongst the saints brings great comfort. I often hear the name of a saint or see a saint pop up on my Facebook. When I read about that person’s life, I can regularly find a way to connect to them. It brings comfort and encouragement to read their stories of strength as they strive to be good and faithful followers of Christ. The saints are all around us as examples of the steps for our lives.
This week, we worship together on All Saints Day. May the special saints of your life be with you, guiding and supporting you on your life journey.
Kim Doyle, Principal
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.

If the child is sent home from 24-hourschool due to illness, they need to stay home the following day until they are significantly better and have met the 24 hour rule.
