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.
St. John Vianney students are creating their own versions of Ugly dolls, dolls commercially avialable in stores and online, as part of their Art curriculum. Fourth grade students first learn about how a product is developed and launched. The, they design their own two-dimensional doll which serves as a template for the final three-dimensional product. Students learn to sew as they stitch their dolls together. "The students get really excited about this project but realize how much hard work is involved," said Art teacher Dana Bach. "In the end, no matter what their Ugly doll looks like, each student is proud of their acievements."
