Dear SWCS Family,

As we enter the month of Thanksgiving, we want to Thank You for blessing us with the opportunity to educate your child—mind, body and soul—at St. Wendelin Catholic School. “When we all come together to educate our children, we will be one step closer to creating a world of good,” ~Pope Francis on Catholic Education.

October was a fun-filled month. We celebrated our patron, St. Wendelin, and took part in Eucharistic Adoration, Vespers, spirit week, parties, trunk or treat, and prepared for the musical, “The Lion King, Jr.” Thank you to our room mothers/fathers for all the festive decorations throughout the school and thank you to all those who volunteered to make these events successful!

We also want to give a SHOUT OUT to students and coaches who participated in CYO volleyball and cross country this season! We are so proud of you and your accomplishments! Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to coach, help, and cheer! Student-athletes will be acknowledged on Friday, November 2nd during the assembly at 2:00 PM.

CYO basketball will kick off in November. We are still in need of coaches for the 5th grade boy’s team and the 4th grade girl’s team. Please contact Shane Burnworth at if you are willing to coach or have any questions.

With the start of November, we prepare to meet with our families during Parent-Teacher Conferences on Tuesday, November 20th from 3:00-9:00 PM. We look forward to this time of the year. It gives the teachers an opportunity to touch base with the parents about their child(ren)’s progress and continue to support the home/school relationship.

We want to thank all of you for your prayers, support, and countless hours of volunteering and sharing of your talents to make our first quarter of school a success! We hope to see everyone at the debut of The Lion King, Jr. on November 2nd and 3rd, the Veteran’s Day Celebration on November 12th, the Book Fair, Family Catechesis Night on November 14th, and at Mass!
