School Notes

  • At St. Wendelin Elementary we understand that a child's moral and spiritual foundation is built first in the home. Assisting parents, we strive to reinforce and integrate those values in all learning experiences. As Catholic schools united by faith in Jesus Christ, shepherded by God our Father, we are called to proclaim the kingdom of God. Nourished by the Eucharist and the Word, out schools exist to educate the minds, nourish the souls, train the bodies, and inspire the hearts of our students through worship, education and service.
