Band and Piano for 2017-2018

To expand our fine arts offerings and make them more convenient for you, band and piano will now be offered during the regular school day beginning this fall. If your child is currently not a band or piano student at St. Clare, but is interested in starting this fall let us know. Band is for students in grades 5-8. Piano is for students in grades 2-8. Piano has a limited number of lesson slots so we may need to start a waiting list. Both band and piano will have a $5.00 fee. If you would like to sign up for band or piano, please email Dr. Nardi at snardi@stclareagw.org or call the office at 920-532-4833.

Road Construction

Brown County Public Works has informed us that at the beginning of April there will be road construction starting from Bridge St (slightly southwest of the school) to Apple Creek Rd (northeast of the school property). This will affect the school entrance and the parking lot entrance. Our area is scheduled for Stage 1. The schedule is weather-dependent and may change due to weather conditions.The work consists of removing existing pavement and replacing it with 4.5" of new asphalt pavement and driveway ends being replaced.


The road will be closed to through traffic, but access to the school and church will be maintained throughout the construction phase.

The St. Clare School JDRF Kids Walk Raised $3000!
