SVDP School

April 28, 2022

Hello SVDP Community,

As the end of the year inches closer, we would like to take a moment to recognize our teaching staff who will be stepping out of their current roles to begin a new journey separate from SVDP. It is with gratitude that we thank these teachers for sharing their gifts and talents with the students at SVDP, and we wish them a blessed future in their new endeavors.

The month of May is full of fun activities to celebrate our students and their achievements. See below for details. Note the VAPA Fest! is back on May 26th.

The STAR assessment window opens next week and classes are scheduled to assess students in subjects of reading and math. Pay attention to teacher announcements about when your specific grade level is scheduled to take the benchmark.

Many blessings!
