Homecoming Week

The week before the homecoming dance, the campus is alive with theme dress days, decorated hallways,

and homecoming court games at lunch time. The Friday before the Saturday homecoming dance, we hold a large homecoming rally in Tillman Hall where students perform skits, play games and vote for our Homecoming King and Queen.

Relay for Life

While the American Cancer Society is making progress toward a world without cancer, only with the dedication and fundraising efforts can we finish the fight against the disease.

Every year our students, are not just fighting one type of cancer they are fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.

Each person who shares the Relay For Life experience takes pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten our loved ones or rob anyone of another birthday.

St. Vincent de Paul HS has a huge presence at this event every year and will continue to support the fight against cancer.

You can connect with the Relay for Life website or contact Kathy Atkinson our faculty coordinator for this event.

2016 Relay Information Update: All SVHS Relay for Life participants are invited to begin their service project with a team meeting July 26 at 1pm in the SV Library. We will work on fundraising and plans for the 24 hour August event.

Night of the Arts

Twice a year we are treated to a night of music and art! Our Fine Arts department puts on a wonderful evening of entertainment and gallery showings.

Rodney Vondrak Week

Rodney attended St. Vincent High School from 1976-1980. He was diagnosed with leukemia as a sixth grade student at St. Vincent Elementary School and died from that disease just a few months before he graduated from St. Vincent High School.

Rodney had a great love for his school. Even though he was ill and suffering, he continued to persevere to be with his class and be at school. Many days in his senior year Rodney would come to school for just a few hours. Rodney never missed a Spirit Rally. Sometimes, he would have to be carried into the arcade (happily and proudly by his classmates) because he was too weak to walk. Nothing could keep him away from the opportunity to show school spirit.

Every spring the students of St. Vincent de Paul High School honor his enthusiasm and dignity with Rodney Vondrak Spirit Events. His family, former classmates, the St. Vincent Parents and Friends Organization, and our entire school community hold his memory dear by presenting an award in remembrance of him and in the hope that his example will continue to inspire us all.

Tim Shea Day
