Whether you're on your way to the library or stopping by City Hall, chances are you're driving by St. John Vianney School, located in the heart of Brookfield. This blog will provide insight into life and education at SJV, a 4K-8 educational anchor in Brookfield since 1957.
The St. John Vianney 7th grade is holding a school raffle during Catholic Schools Week to benefit the people of Haiti. The first anniversary of the devastating earthquake which still cripples much of this country was on January 12th, 2011. Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and one of the poorest in the world. It was suffering from a terrible economic crisis even before last year’s natural disaster. The 7th graders hope to make a difference by holding the raffle this week. All proceeds will go to Catholic Relief Services, which is one of the most respected and reputable international humanitarian organizations in the world. For information on this organization, please go to crs.org. With this raffle, the 7th graders demonstrate the Catholic Schools’ mission to "live out the Gospel" and make a difference.
