Summer Newsletter 2020

Dear SVDP Community,

We hope you are safe and healthy. Today we celebrated the life of Father Ken Westray. It has been a day of many tears and much laughter. When we can all gather together and in-person, we will host a different celebration to honor his memory.


Tonight at midnight, our Student Management System (SMS) will shift from Beehively to SchoolSpeak. Our decision to use SchoolSpeak allows us to more easily coordinate with the Archdiocese data collection system. Beehively will continue to host our website.

You will be able to access SchoolSpeak through our website and clicking the login button. Each family at SVDP already has a SchoolSpeak account, but you may not remember your login -- no problem, you can easily request a reset. If you need assistance, contact

Blazers & Baubles

Big picture

Thank you to everyone that participated in the our Blazers & Baubles online art auction. We are pleased to announced that we netted $52,000. As promised, these funds will be go towards renovating our cafeteria into a "cafe" environment. Work began this week. Check out some of the demolition photos.

Fall Opening

In early July, we expect to receive guidance from the mayor's office regarding school reopening. Our task force is ready to receive this information and continue our reopening planning. Final approval is a multi-layered process, and we appreciate your patience. As always, bringing our students back to a safe environment is our top priority.
