Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of the Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

Pray for our 8th-grade students this week as they attend their final capstone experience. They will be going to Camp Victory for a retreat on Thursday and Friday. We celebrate with them, and we want to pray that they continue to practice and grow in their faith and virtues as they move into their high school years.

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.

Calendar for next year
Please try to avoid too much time away from school for your children.

Family vacations are amazing, and everyone deserves to relax and refresh.  Please look very closely at the calendar for the next school year as you are planning.  Time away from school is not necessarily relaxing for many children, parents, or teachers.

We encourage you to have your children in school as much as possible. We have less than 1/2 the days in a full year to work with your kids. Please schedule as many breaks as possible during the planned school breaks so the children are in school when school is in session. We also understand that many times, dates cannot be adjusted due to your personal work schedule.

Also, mark all of our event dates now so that you can participate fully in the life of the school.
