Although Mr. Koch showed his appreciation for all faculty and staff, those celebrating a milestone year were recognized. Congratulations to Colleen Cihlar - 5 years, Jodi Langenhahn - 10 Years, Sandi Eckardt - 15 years, and Suzie Lang - 30 years. "Whatever you do, do it is you were working for the Lord and not for man." ~The Apostle Paul

  • Ice Cream: What a wonderful way to end the school year by a trip to the Pizza Market for ice cream. Several classes took a stroll down the hill to enjoy some delicious ice cream. Thank you, Pizza Market for allowing our students to come for this yummy treat.

  • Talent Show & AR/Rocket Math Awards: Students had the opportunity to showcase their talent at the end of year Talent Show. 4K sang and signed the ABC's, while some danced, sang and we even had a comedian. AR and Rocket Math awards were given out. Our top reader was Velda Mechelke (Gr 6) with a total of 906 AR points! 2nd place went to Sara Marek (Gr 6) and 3rd place to Sam Altenhofen (Gr 7). The first to master their Rocket Math were Adam Murkowski (Gr 2), Nathan Schroder (Gr 3), Brayson Schneider and Mallory Sternberg (Gr 4). Congratulations to all our award recipients.

  • 5K Graduation: Mrs. Novak was very proud to announce this year's Kindergarten graduates. God provided a beautiful day to have their graduation ceremony outside. Parents and grandparents were able to attend the ceremony. Congratulations students and welcome to 1st grade.

  • 4th grade to the Baeseman Farm: 4th graders took a trip to the "little red schoolhouse/farm" today. Our trip to the little red schoolhouse was canceled due to COVID, but the Baeseman farm was a great replacement. We enjoyed our time in the shed doing lessons, playing games, outside going for walks, going to the barn and meeting the animals, and many other adventures. Thank you to all the parents for helping these kids have a wonderful experience and to the Baeseman's for hosting this wonderful group!

  • Graduation: Congratulations to our 8th grade graduates. May the Lord guide you as you prepare to enter high school. We wish you God's peace.

  • Daughter of the Americas: St. Rose Court #1062 held a contest and three sixth grade students were pretty excited to hear the news that they won the local and state contest. They are now entered in the national competition. Congratulations to Will Bretzke - Photography; Natilee Hummer - Essay and Velda Mechelke - Computer Art and good luck at nationals. Each student received a cash prize.

  • 8th Grade Awards: Each year 8th graders receive four special awards. Award recipients are voted on by the 8th grade class, coaches, faculty and staff. This year's recipients are: Katie LeBlanc - Academic and Outstanding Female Athlete; Cody Radtke - Outstanding Male Athlete; and the Eagle Award - Kiley Mader. The Eagle Award is our most prestigious award and is awarded to the student that exhibits respect towards teachers, staff and classmates, exhibits school pride, is responsible, demonstrates involvement and participation in class, assemblies and extra-curricular activities, is dependable, is accepting of all classmates, applies Christian principles towards self and others, shows reverence at liturgy and puts forth effort in all he/she does. Congratulations to all three award winners.

  • Track & Field Gr 2, 3, 4: It was a beautiful, sunshiny day for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade track and field day. They enjoyed the great outdoors running and jumping hurdles and having a great time.

  • DARE Graduation: Although the actual DARE Graduation ceremony was cancelled due to rain, the 5th graders were able to enjoy some bowling fun and pizza to celebrate their accomplishments.

  • 4K - 1 Field Day: The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day for field day activities. 4K - 1st graders had a fun time running, jumping and throwing as they practiced their skills. It took a steady hand to transfer the water from one bucket to another without spilling. A treat of fresh fruit and cheese sticks followed the day's activities.

  • Dominoes: Students and staff donated items to be set up and knocked down like dominoes.   After the fun, the items will be delivered to the Circle of Joy.

  • 8th Grade Bench Donation: This year the 8th grade project was a bench which will be placed up by the playground. The 8th grade class put their handprints on the bench and the words "If you can be anything, be kind." Thank you to Steve Seubert for the construction of the bench.

  • Volunteer Appreciation: We are so grateful to the wonderful men and women who volunteer their time in various ways to enrich the lives of our students and help our school in so many ways. A volunteer Liturgy was held in appreciation for all they do and each volunteer received a goodie bag and flowers as a way of saying "thank you".
