Saints' Support to All Saints-

"How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a bother or sister in need and yet refuses help? Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action." -1 John 3:17-18

Now until the 18th, WCS will be collecting personal hygiene products to donate to All Saints' Church located on 25th and Capital Dr. in Milwaukee. All Saints is St. Bernard's sister parish and we understand there is a greater need for hygiene products over food at this time. Therefore, this is our Thanksgiving drive. Thank you to those families that have already donated items.

This is how we roll!

Skate Night is tomorrow, November 12th (6:00 to 9:00pm).

About Skate Nights:

  • You don't have to skate.
  • Skate Nights are open to everyone in the community.
  • Students under 16 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Pizzas are prepared to order- to eat in the cafe or to take with you.
  • There are onion rings and cheese curds too.
  • You can hold a friend's hand while you skate. :)

Parental Choice Program next year~

Please check your email. A survey was sent to primary family member emails that allows you to indicate your interest in joining Choice and a simple Yes/No as to whether or not you believe your family may be eligible.

Note: We will continue to offer tuition assistance if it's needed AND your family is not eligible for Choice.

Please DO complete the survey for us (even if you will not participate in Choice) as this information will help us determine how many additional seats to add.

Teaching Science to others~

Forth grader, Seamus, completed his Action Plan by engaging K4 in a science experiment. He wanted to spread the message from Stephen Hawking to make science more accessible. Way to go Seamus!

A few additional items for the library~

Thank you to the Martinez family for donating the Magnetix set to the library. They've been a hit!

Additionally, we are looking for:

  • string lights
  • lamp(s)
  • prayer items
  • inspirational pictures or posters
  • plants (live ones probably wouldn't get enough light so fake ones)

We are trying to create some cozy reading and prayer corners.

Scenes from the week

Thank you vets~

May we always keep in mind the sacrifices that our veterans made for us so that we are grateful for our freedom and exercise sound judgement when making future decisions. Thank you for your service.
