Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

One great thing that you can do to help your children know God is to send them to a Catholic School. I am so proud of our staff and our students this year. We have had many amazing prayerful experiences where we have spent time with God, have worked hard on learning and practicing how to be faithfilled and virtuous people, and have learned how to think about the next person/stranger/others in the world who need us. 

Our school is focused on our mission first and foremost in providing an education where the entire school community works toward one common goal of enlightening and enriching the hearts and souls of each other so that we can know God more. We are a Christ-centered family.  When we have this part moving then the other parts follow.

Please continue to pray for the health and strength of St. Wenceslaus Catholic School. We do make a difference in our community and world. Our school is needed for those of us who choose to be here and believe and for others whom we affect along the way.

Kim Doyle, Principal
“Be Still and Know that I am God” – Psalm 46:10

Post uniforms the are too small or ones your kids never wear. Others might be able to use it for their kids.

Facebook – SWS Uniform Exchange

Do Not bring bags of uniforms to school. We no longer host an exchange night as we have no place to store them.  The uniform site was successful last year. We will try for one more year.

No uniforms for the last week of school May 23-26.

Students need school appropriate clothing.
Shorts and t-shirts are fine as long as they are not too short and the t-shirts have appropriate sayings as defined by staff members.

Closed toe/closed heel shoes are required for grades K-6.
