Auction (April 29th, 2023) news~

Congrats to our Lucky Draw winner!

Our very own Mr. and Mrs. Ramsey won free tuition for their son, Samuel. Sam will be a 3rd grader next year at WCS. We couldn't think of a more deserving family to win as Jeff is our Auction Chair and Christina is the Head of Home and School. Congratulations!

A message from Auction Chair, Jeff Ramsey:

I know everyone was anxiously waiting - here we go! Auction website is LIVE!!!

Tickets are on sale now. This will be an AWESOME night - you don't want to miss it - come one, come all - bring your friends. Let's get excited for another great auction night.

Saturday, April 29 - mark your calendars, get your babysitters lined up - see you there!!!

New to a school auction?

The Auction for Education is our biggest fundraiser. Because the cost of educating a child is greater than what we charge for tuition, we rely on the generous donations and contributions that come from the auction. Some private schools hold their auction every other year. We hold ours annually.

This year our theme is "A Night at the Races." Attendees will dress in Kentucky Derby attire and enjoy drinks, appetizers, and dinner together. The event will take place at the Renaissance Hotel in Wauwatosa on Saturday, April 29th.

The auction is open to all families, faculty, parishioners and friends of WCS. You can get your group together and dine at a table set for 8. Although much work is involved to put the event together (Thanks Jeff Ramsey, our Auction Chair!), it is always fun and memorable. All enjoy conversation, company and fellowship while raising money for a cause that's near and dear to our hearts: educating our children.

Did you know?

Our Music Teacher, Ms. Kaprice Maxwell, is a professionally trained vocalist? In fact, she and her band will be singing Pregame for the Bucks tonight (5:30) and at half-time during Wednesday's Bucks game! Way to go Ms. Kaprice!
