Principal's Welcome

Principal (1).webp

Come and let us embrace together the challenge of providing for all our students a place where they can blossom, a place where learning about God and his Creation is the center of everything.


Over the past 160 years, St. Aloysius has continually worked to provide the best quality education for its students. As times are changing faster than ever before, we recognize that improvement is not enough. The uncertain future impels us to continually find ways to equip students with skills and knowledge that will prepare them to be successful in careers that do not even exist yet.


We understand that we can build the best future for all our students by being proactive about the necessary adaptive changes.


Teachers, as part of a meaningful learning community of collaboration, commit to enhance the education of each one of the students according to their needs and learning styles.


Administrators, by supporting the teachers' efforts, become real facilitators of learning, constantly searching for ways to assist everyone in their particular tasks.


Parents, by being active learners, develop positive attitudes towards new research-based strategies for instruction.


Students, guided by their natural curiosity and love for learning, open their spirits to all knowledge of God and of this world to develop their talents in their full potential.


Let us all continue sharing the vision that an integral formation in high academic standards and well-rooted faith values not only contribute to make this world a better place but also and most importantly, helps every individual to find the real Happiness in this life and in the next.



Five Core Pillars of Saint Al


Throughout our school day, faith is continually at work. It provides a solid foundation for all of our academic and social activities. Our teachers create an environment where students learn and practice self-respect, modesty, respect for others, and morality as a part of their everyday life.

Meet Our School Family


I love spending time outdoors, especially hiking the Wisconsin State Parks, and spending time with my husband and two teenage children in our little log cabin in the woods near Spring Green.

When I’m not teaching, reading, or learning a new language, I like spending time ice skating or skiing . . . good thing I live in Wisconsin!

I’ve got a full house with my husband, three pretty cool teenage children, a cat, a dog, a duck and a few chickens! I love staying active and always find time to help out at my family’s Christmas tree farm.


I enjoy dabbling in a lot of things! If I’m not singing, at the horse barn, or working on our latest house project, you may find me splashing in the creek with my boys, stargazing, or practicing hand lettering! 

I really enjoy cooking and baking (can you tell I have a sweet tooth?) and I can’t wait to try new recipes!  I also love to read and always have a book in mind that I want to read next.

The best part of my week is when I spend Mondays with my brother priests from the Society of Jesus Christ the Priest.  I really enjoy playing soccer with them, but also like biking, swimming, hiking, and jogging.

I love attacking a new art project or arts & crafts activity. A more relaxed hobby is roasting pudgy pies and s’mores over an evening
campfire with my husband and 6 kids. And I love food and trying new recipes! Pic is in the
media folder on the website.

Jacob Kruchten

 I enjoy reading, studying languages, and visiting new
places. I have eleven siblings; and I get to teach three of them at St. Aloysius School!

Nick Ringelsetter

Physical Education

I like spending time with my four kids and two grandchildren
playing “young kid games” is a lot of fun! His pic is in the media folder on the website.

Matthew Hanstad

General Teacher Aide

 I am originally from Iowa and am happy to be in Wisconsin! I enjoy the outdoors and learning more about our Catholic faith. I’m grateful to be serving at St. Al’s!

I love running, hiking, biking, and walking in beautiful WI, and
having a good and relaxing time watching classic movies. What I enjoy the most is spending
time with my friends and relatives, learning about the faith, and working at St. Al’s.

Karen Merline

Director of Religious Ed and Parish/School Advancement

 I am an avid gardener and cook, and I simply enjoy all things homemaking in general! I was raised on a dairy farm, so I also love working with animals and taking in the beauty of God's creation.

Sue Prentiss

School Chef

It’s relaxing for me to play around in my garden. I also have a great time doing arts and crafts with my grandchildren when I’m babysitting.
