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.
While the nation re-elected President Barack Obama to a second term in office on November 6th, the mock Presidential elections at St. John Vianney turned out differently.
After researching candidates and preparing speeches, four students, who were chosen by SJV Social Studies teacher and election coordinator Sue Schmitt, delivered those speeches to SJV fourth through fifth graders on Tuesday November 6th. After hearing the speeches, the students voted electronically.
Barack Obama was represented by Sarah Clarke while Joe Biden was presented by Lexie Ries. For the Conservatives, Maureen Parks stood-in for Mitt Romney and Max Casey represented Paul Ryan.
Election results at SJV would've sent Mitt Romney to the White House and Barack Obama on to his next endeavor with 84% voting for Romney/Ryan and 16% voting for Obama/Biden.
