Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update

From the Office of the Principal…

Our school is definitely a small community within a larger community.  We are here to support each other and to raise all of our children together. We can accomplish more together when we share the same goals, virtues, and values. Our friendship and care for each other and for our children makes a huge difference as we go through the challenges of life at any stage, be it preschool or if you are a parent, grandparent, or teacher.

Kim Doyle, Principal

Marathon Collection Progress to Date

We have collected 25% of our all-school goal of $43,000. Keep up the great work. All marathon money will be due on October 1. The prize rally will take place on the Friday after the marathon and students will get some really great prizes and even a day off of school if we meet our goal. BUT…. up to the marathon time, we will have special prizes to give rewards. Money is counted every MWF, and totals are added on Friday’s for a prize.

Our School Goal is $43,000

Dozinky Day Parade Participation – Saturday, September 22
We invite everyone ride or walk along with the SWS Float for the Dozinky Parade. We would like to see our school (Preschool-Grade 8)  out in the community with strong numbers.  We would like to show our “RED”. Parents wear the free t-shirt that we gave you last year or in August. Kids wear any red shirt (SWS spirit wear shirt, uniform shirt, or another red t-shirt). We have some shirts (limited sizes) for sale for $15 in the office. Our unit number is #45.  Please meet at the lineup site beginning at 11:30 for a 12: 00-noon start.

 We are also seeking large bags of candy for tossing out.  Students riding the float should bring an empty ice cream bucket so we can fill it with candy.
