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.
In preparation for Easter, St. John Vianney students from K5 through eighth grade attended the Stations of the Cross on Wednesday, March 27th in the Parish Church.
Now more than ever it seems that people are in need and St. John Vianney students are helping to fill that need by collecting new toiletries such as women's hygiene products, deodorant, cough drops, shampoo and more, for the Milwaukee Rescue Mission and the Sojourner Truth House.
St. John Vianney fourth graders conducted a state fair on Wednesday, March 13th, showcasing detailed written reports and hand-made maps on each state.
Through Operation Rice Bowl, the SJV students and their families, along with parishioners, had an opportunity to pray for and directly assist the poor in the U.S. and overseas. Each family kept a cardboard 'bowl' on their table and collected money. The box was accompanied by stories of people in other countries, including their joys and sorrows. Contributions support Catholic Relief Services and the Vincent Family Center in Milwaukee run by the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Donations topped $2,800 this year.
