The Results Are In: Weston Challenge a Success!

Thanks to all alumni and SSMO friends who participated in the 2014 Weston Challenge, we exceeded our goal of $22,500 and hit a high note to the tune of $23,258. Our sincerest thanks and gratitude go out to all who participated this year. Your generosity gives our students the means to pursue opportunities and the confidence to find their passions. The Joseph E. Weston Public Foundation will match every gift, making our grand total $45,000 for high school tuition assistance and school endowment!

A special congratulations to the class of 1959, winner of the Weston Challenge participation award! They raised $650 between five classmates, and the donors will receive a free VC on-campus event pass.

Go Valiants!


Plan on joining us at the 2015 Gala


Plans are underway for this year’s Valley Catholic School Gala!

Save the Date for Saturday, February 21, 2015 at Montgomery Park.

More information coming soon.  Questions? Contact us at

The VCS Gala provides financial support that makes many of our school
programs possible.  As a pre-K through 12 school, we invite the entire
community to play a role in supporting this annual celebration.  Grade
projects, class baskets and high school vacation packages, all help raise funds
that directly benefit students, faculty, staff and programs at Valley Catholic.


Introducing our newest Foundation team member!

Betsy Velluto – Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon Foundation Database Manager

Betsy joined the SSMO Foundation team in mid-August where she will manage database analytics, donor gifts, and financial reporting on behalf of the organization.  She, her husband Chris, and son Dominik live in Beaverton.  Dominik’s a second grader at Valley Catholic, so she’s also a proud and  involved parent.  According to Betsy, “We enjoy just about anything outdoors and some of our favorite family activities include biking, camping, downhill skiing, gardening and travel.  No matter what we do, we love having family and friends with us to share in the experience.” Betsy years of non-profit experience have made her a quick study and smart teammate – we are thrilled she’s here, and she’s “happy to be part of the amazing work that’s being done by the SSMO.”
