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 order to teach future generations about Martin Luther King, Jr., St. John Vianney fifth graders produced and enacted a play recapping salient moments in his life for the kindergarteners.
The play presented significant historical events including Rosa Park's courageous actions, a peace march protesting segregation, and poignant quotes from Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech. As part of the project, the students were challenged to develop ideas for creating a more peaceful world.
Master Chan Lee, the Bully Expert from Milwaukee's own JK Lee Black Belt Academy, is teaching St. John Vianney students age-appropriate anti-bullying skills over the course of four sessions.
According to the American Justice Department, one out of every four children is bullied. Recently, a staggering 77% of surveyed U.S. students reported being mentally, verbally, or physically bullied.
St. John Vianney Catholic School students invited friends currently attending different area schools to share a-day-in-the-life of an SJV student in January. The guests experienced classes with their friends including Art, Music, Spanish, Math and even roller skating in Gym. The visitors were treated to lunch and SJV water bottles, pencils and folders. Hopefully, they left with more than just fun memories and school supplies. SJV aimed to introduce the visiting students to Catholic school edcuations and all it has to offer.
Art class is getting personal at SJV as Art teacher Dana Bach challenges the kids to produce a self-portrait this quarter. All the grade levels are participating in the project. Creating their self portrait helps the students "focus on seeing and understanding their identity and what makes them who they are," said Ms. Bach. Using different methods and mediums, the students' projects will reflect their "own personal identity in the world," Ms. Bach added.
