From the Principal

I welcome you to St. Vincent de Paul School. Our school is one of five Catholic schools in the Assumption Catholic Schools system that unified in 1999. We are located at 831 12th St. South, Wisconsin Rapids. St. Vincent de Paul Schools is an intermediate campus, hosting third through fifth grade students.


We have a full-time staff of six homeroom teachers. We also boast of our shared staff, a very talented group of individuals teaching art, choral music, instrumental music, and physical education. Many family and friend volunteers provide further support in numerous areas of our school setting. All of our teachers hold current Wisconsin DPI licenses. St. Vincent de Paul’s teachers are very dedicated and truly embrace each student’s desire to reach his/her full potential. The teaching team is dynamic and ambitious; we incorporate numerous teaching strategies to meet the learning needs of all students. All staff work together in partnership with each other so as to provide a clean, safe, stimulating, and productive learning environment for all students.


I encourage you to give your child a Christ-centered learning environment in addition to the elementary coursework needed to keep your child successful. Our Assumption Catholic School's curriculum includes the NCEA  Benchmarks and Standards, as well as, the Diocese of LaCrosse Curriculum standards as the minimum teaching/learning standards and benchmarks for all students and teachers.


Our Catholic faith infiltrates every aspect of our school day. Each day is begun with prayer as part of our student-led morning announcements. Classroom teachers make sure to allow many opportunities for prayer throughout the day. They teach the faith by modeling Christian behavior, maintaining high standards of respect for others, holding students accountable for their behavior, and conducting daily religion lessons. Each week, a children’s liturgy is celebrated involving Mass readings and prayers of petition performed by children from the homeroom responsible for that week.


I welcome you to visit our school. Walk the halls and listen to what children are saying. St. Vincent de Paul School is a wonderful place for children to learn and grow, intellectually and spiritually.


Peace and blessings to you and your family,
Pam Fochs, Principal

The Academic Success Center is a program that has been created by our educators to assist students with the improvement of reading and math skills, tutoring in academic areas, and also homework completion. Our Literacy Lab teacher from St. Vincent de Paul School will be leading this educational extension opportunity of our young children throughout the year. Students are invited to stay after school for opportunities to work with a licensed teacher on academic related areas. The Academic Success Center is an extension of our child care program from 3:40 to 4:30.  After 4:30 students may participate in the child care program until its daily ending at 5:30.


Student Services

The Elementary Schools guidance program uses a “primary prevention” approach in order to prevent minor problems from developing into major ones. The approach is based on the fact that all children are unique individuals and have numerous strengths from which they can draw as they attempt to cope with the many challenges of growing up.


Even small children have frustrations and problems, which occasionally seem overwhelming. For this reason, individual and small group counseling are available with the guidance counselor.
