Hello Parents,

You should have all received an invitation from your child’s teacher to join ClassDojo. We will be using ClassDojo in conjunction with SchoolSpeak to communicate with families, reward students, and deliver instruction. It is imperative that all parents join the team so that we are all on the same during distance learning. If you have not received an invitation to join ClassDojo please reach out to your child’s teacher. You MUST sign up before Friday of this week. Please remember that we will be using BOTH SchoolSpeak and ClassDojo to communicate with you and your children. We thank you for your support and cooperation. May God Bless You!

SVdP Golf Classic has been rescheduled for November 7, 2020 at GCU Golf Course. Stay tuned for more details!
