Dear SWCS Family,

We have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for as we end the 2017-18 school year. This year has been a true blessing because of the support, love, dedication and faith from each one of you. Thank you to the staff, students, parents, grandparents, families, and friends who volunteered time, energy, talents, gifts and prayers throughout the year. Thank you to all those who serve on various committees within the parish and school. We appreciate you and know that our volunteers are a very important part of the educational and spiritual growth at SWCS. We are truly thankful and grateful for you.

May was a very eventful month at SWCS. Students and staff enjoyed Safety Day, Imagination Education Day, Field Day, and Parish/School Family Movie night. On May 2nd, students in K-8 attended Mass and May Crowning to honor our Blessed Mother and thank her for her love and protection. Second grade students received the Sacrament of Holy Communion on May 6th. What a holy and joyful occasion they faithfully prepared for and celebrated. On May 21st, the kindergarten class hosted an End-Of-The-Year Celebration. The students performed songs, received awards, watched a slideshow of the year and enjoyed cookies and talking with family and friends. The last day of school began with Baccalaureate Mass for our graduating eighth grade students followed by an Awards Assembly to celebrate all the achievements made by SWCS students. We are so proud of each student’s accomplishments. We ended the day with many students meeting their Prayer Pals for the first time and enjoying lunch with SWCS families and friends.

On May 24th, SWCS celebrated the eighth grade students with a Graduation ceremony. There is pride in knowing that the students in the Class of 2018 are well-grounded, faith-filled, disciples of Christ who are ready to embark on their new adventures. Elijah Kitchen, Clementina Ortiz, Ella Seibert, and Aiden Steinmetz: St. Wendelin Parish & School is proud of your hard work and dedication to living out the mission to become Saints and is excited to see your accomplishments in the years to come. You and your families are in our prayers as you embark onto your high school years. May the love of the Holy Spirit protect you and guide you in your life journey.

It has truly been a pleasure serving all of you this year! Have a safe and blessed summer and we look forward to seeing everyone at the St. Wendelin Festival on June 8th and 9th and at Mass!

God Bless!
