Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;
St. Wenceslaus Catholic School has a rich and long-standing history of excellence within our community. Our past has set the tone for our future when we look to the success of our graduates many years beyond these formational blocks of life. Many families have been able to participate in this beautiful school community where each shares a joint mission for their children. That mission, first and foremost, is to bring everyone closer to God. We do this in our school by teaching that God loves us. We teach the two greatest commandments, love God with all your heart and soul, and love your neighbors equally. To that end, we develop capable and confident students who also become compassionate to the needs of others both near and far. Our excellence in academics flows with happy students who love to learn.
In this week where we pull the greater community together for the sake of the school at our Starry Night, we know that the impact we can make in these formational years speaks loudly. We are so thankful for your support in all ways. Your prayers, your participation, your generosity keeps our mission alive and growing in hope for each child’s future.
Kim Doyle, Principal

Starry Night Volunteers
Lots of help is needed this week as we make the final preparations for the night. Come join us if you have an hour or two free.
Here is the volunteer link to see when we are working. You can sign up or simply drop in – We will take everyone who is willing to help until we get everything ready.
Fund-A-Need – Request for Donations
Goal 1 = $35,000
For the purchase of new Interactive Whiteboards called the Clevertouch.This amount will achieve 7-8 new boards to replace worn-out Smartboards.
The Clevetouch boards have become a necessity for our school in the present technology-based world. We have moved entirely away from the old blackboards, covered by whiteboard material years ago. Over the past ten years, we have been using Smartboards that allow teachers to link in their computers to provide lessons, but these are slowly wearing out and need replacement. The Clevertouch boards allow teachers to connect to the Internet and their files stored on their computers, in a Google Drive or “the cloud ”. It is nearly impossible to offer our current curriculum without this classroom tool.
Goal 2 = $15,000
To replace the 30-60-year-old window shades throughout the school. This amount will supply or replace 108 window shades in our school building.
It is time for the replacement of window shades. Many of our school building shades are so old that they are cracking and tearing. Many cannot roll up if they come down. Some are crinkled and roll up partially but cannot be used. This creates a problem for teachers when using multimedia on their interactive whiteboards, using computers when it is bright and sunny, and not adjusting the lighting for the comfort of teaching and learning. It also makes our clean, well-kept old school look very shabby and outdated to the eye.
Our staff, students, and others will be appreciative of all donations and gifts for these causes.
$22 per book. All orders are due by April 6 dealine.
This booK is 44 pages for students in preschool through 8th grade. It is a nice keepsake.
