The 2014-2015 school year was a special one at Saint Victor School as it celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The festivities culminated in a 50th Anniversary Mass celebrated by the Most Reverend Bishop Patrick J. McGrath. Following the Mass, the principal, Patricia Wolf unearthed a 25-year-old time capsule buried in 1989. The students marveled at the old uniforms, photos, trophy, and news headlines detailing the aftermath of the 1989 earthquake. After unearthing the 1989 time capsule, the school community collaborated to create a new time capsule to be unearthed in 2039.

In the year 2039 the school will be celebrating its 75th anniversary.  Students worked hard to write “letters to the future.”  The teachers created a colorful scrapbook. The faculty, staff, and students collected a school uniform, iPhone, yearbook, daily newspaper, student-created projects and a USB with a video of the school grounds to go into the new time capsule.  On June 30, Patricia Wolf, Principal; Victoria Hinkle, Vice Principal; teachers Peggy Rendler, Grace Triunfante, Ann Fuller and Vida Cortes along with the parish maintenance supervisor, James Weisman buried the 2039 Time Capsule.  It is located in the same area as the previous time capsule, but with a beautiful bronze plaque instead of the original marble face.  The school community is looking forward to coming back in 2039 to relive great memories.
