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.
Four of SJV's very own 8th graders, Elizabeth Capper, Casey Crooks, Kaitlin Hohl, and Mary Newby, inspired by an annual assignment from Mrs. Schmitt's Social Studies class unit on Social Justice, have coordinated a small fundraiser over at Brookfield Farmers Market. This fundraiser, to be held this Saturday (August 9th) and next Saturday (August 16th), will benefit the people of West Allis and Waukesha . They will be using the money they raise at the Farmer's Market to buy batteries for the Waukesha and West Allis fire departments. These fire departments will be giving away batteries to people in need for use in their own home smoke detectors.
Two of SJV's very own 8th graders, Matthew Cekanor and Sung Yeon Won, prompted by an assignment from their Social Studies class unit on Social Justice, have coordinated a fundraiser. This miniature golf fundraiser, to be held at the National Golf Center in Big Bend, will benefit the DAAA (Dwarf Athletic Assocation of America). The Dwarf Athletic Assocation of America promotes and provides quality amateur athletic opportunities for dwarf athletes in the United States. The National Golf Center is owned by Paul Mindel and his family, a parish and school family. A donation will be made by the National Golf Center to DAAA for every round of miniature golf and bucket of range balls purchased during the weekend.
