February Parent/Teacher conferences

The conferences set for Feb. 9th from 3:30 - 7:00pm are optional but I would encourage you to reach out to your child's teacher if you

  • know your student is struggling academically
  • see your student is unmotivated and/or exhibiting inappropriate behavior
  • need to discuss multiple absences that may be impacting learning
  • recently joined our school
  • have any other concern you would like to discuss

so that you and your child's teacher can schedule a conference.

This would be an ideal situation to review not only grades but STAR parent reports as well.

We look forward to seeing you on the 9th if needed.

Nora invites you to Open House

How would you design a house if you were 6 years old?

In 1st Grade, we learned about types of homes around the world. We discussed different types of homes based on geographical features and climate and talked about basic human needs. Additionally, we learned about our place on the map and how to read maps.

Students created a 3D model of home for a climate of their choosing after having completed a booklet of home types. The results were creative and reflective of their personalities!

New this year- McTeacher's Night!

How fun is this!?! Your WCS staff is volunteering to work a shift at McDonald's to raise funds for our school. Please mark your calendars to have dinner at our event. Your kids are going to realize they have the coolest teachers ever and you will be the coolest parents ever by taking them to McDonald's for dinner (or stop by for desert).

Opportunity for Families~

Join us for a Lourdes Prayer Experience!

Date: Sunday, February 5th

Time: 4:00 - 5:30 pm

Location: St. Bernard Church

In 1858, Mary appeared 18 times to a young girl in Lourdes, France. The grotto and spring where she appeared became a place of prayer, healing and
miracles. Today, over 6 million people visit Lourdes annually and continue to experience God’s goodness and Mary’s motherly intercession. But, since we can’t bring you to Lourdes, we’re bringing Lourdes to you!

  • Learn about St. Bernadette
  • Hear stories of documented miracles & healings
  • Touch the rock from the grotto
  • Receive your own Holy Water from the spring
  • Eucharistic Adoration
  • Candlelight Rosary

This interactive prayer experience is open to all ages and is great for families! For more information, contact Sarah Daszczuk at (414) 258-2604.
