Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;
Easter brings us the signs of spring. At SWS we are anxious to get out to explore our beautiful campus yards this spring. As a STEM school, we intentionally plan for learning to take place within God’s creations. Many of our activities include making connections from the academics we learn within the classroom to how those things apply to the world around us.
Outdoor learning helps us take a deeper look at our environment made by God such as grass, trees, and small bugs to the objects made by man like the shape of each block in the church, the measurements needing math skills, how our community is formed both past and present, and so much more.
We are very lucky at SWS to have the beautiful gardens to cherish. Our classes are often seen in the Mary Garden ( the beautiful space between the church and school with the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary) doing prayer, meditation, journaling, or simply relaxing. It is also a great place for a lesson in English or literature.
STEM opens all aspects up to students, especially when we can learn outside.

Pot-O-Gold – Cash prize of $20,000.00
We have only 650 tickets ($100 each).
Great odds of winning!
Do you know anyone who might like this chance?
If each family would sell two/three tickets, then we would have them sold.
Let’s rally around the school one more time!
You can get tickets from Sherry in the school office.
Beautiful Greeting Cards made by the 3rd grade
We have about a dozen packets of these VanGough inspired greeting cards. They are leftover from the Starry Night.
Each packet contains 15 cards with a variety of designs made by our 3rd graders. We are selling them for $20 per packet.
Click here to see a sample of the packet.
Call or email the school office if you want to purchase any.
Thank You Video – from our staff to you!
We appreciate each and every one of you!
It has been a great 2021-2022 school year.

New Shades and Clevertouch Boards are coming
Shades will be installed in May to over 100 school windows. Many of the school shades are 50-60 years old or older. This is a much needed update.
We are so excited to have this new make-over in our school. A very special thanks to all of the people who donated to the Fund-a-Need drive at our Starry Night.
We are also in the process of ordering the Clevertouch boards for the classrooms. They will be arriving this spring with teachers getting trained on using them over the summer. We will be ready to go next fall with our newest technology thanks to the Fund-a-Need donors.
