Come see the Holiday Train~

After a 2-year hiatus, the CP Holiday Train is back on 12/9/22, with a stop to raise funds and food donations for Tosa Cares!

WCS students and friends will be out at Pocket Park (where the stairs go down to Wauwatosa Ave. and Harwood Ave.) after school to give out candy canes and Skate Night coupons to promote our school.

The train will arrive in Wauwatosa at the Harwood Avenue crossing at 4 p.m.

Musicians Alan Doyle and Kelly Prescott will perform from 4:15 - 4:45.

After the Holiday Train departs, head over to Root Common Park for the Wauwatosa Village Tree Lighting.

Report cards~

Student report cards will be going “live” tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. Please use your Option C login that you received in your Wauwatosa Catholic School folder from the Meet and Greet. It is the same login you use for our hot lunch program.

It's a great time to check in with your child(ren) to review goals and ask how you can support them during the next trimester.


SCRIP is a year round fundraising program managed by St. Bernard and St. Pius X. You purchase gift cards or certificates at face value. Merchants have provided these gift cards or certificates to the parishes at a discount that varies and is listed on the SCRIP order form for each parish. These discounts (SCRIP profits or rebates) are then accumulated and recorded for each school family. Fifty percent of the SCRIP profits earned by each family are returned as a credit on their tuition statements twice a year (January and May.)

Scrip rebates for purchases from May – mid-December will be applied to January tuition statements, so get those scrip purchases made in the next two weeks!

Starla’s Gourmet Seasonings –

Orders are due in the office no later than December 14th. You will receive your items in time for Christmas. Make checks payable to WCS or cash happily accepted. Thanks for supporting this school fundraiser.
