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.
Students entering K4 at St. John Vianney celebrate the start of the school year by decorating canvas totes they’ll use as book bags but the material serves as far more than just a surface for whimsical ballerinas and growling dinosaurs. The bag-decorating project introduces the students to the concepts of community, sharing, creating and learning.
Whether you’re new to St. John Vianney, a familiar face to staff and students alike, or just an advocate of quality education, you’ll be proud to learn about the top ten changes the school implemented this year to improve the overall experience and education it provides.
In order to infuse classroom learning with real-world experiences, on Friday the SJV 5th graders traveled back in time, to Wisconsin’s own Buckskinner Encampment in Hartford in order to learn about life in the 1700s and 1800s.
Located at Woodlawn Park and open to the public, the encampment offers several examples of life in the early 1800s such as fur traders, cooking, blacksmith demonstrations, quill working and much more. The students experienced first-hand the lifestyle, customs and traditions of that era.
St. John Vianney Catholic School (SJV) instituted a new reading and language arts program last year that is already producing positive results.
