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.
Every year, St. John Vianney students take part in a talent show, called Vianney Varieties, that showcases creative, sometimes humorous and always entertaining acts. This year's event was no exception.
On Thursday, November 8th, students in fifth through eighth grade treated a packed auditorium to skits featuring solo vocal and guitar performances, songs sung by groups of students, jazz and pop dance routines, a basketball trampoline dunk contest and even a performance by pillow people.
In an effort to provide local families with a holiday treat, St. John Vianney Parish, St. Vincent de Paul and Roundy's Metro Market collaborate every year to donate holiday pies to area families.
This year's drive marks the tenth consecutive year of SJV's participation in the program. With over 600 pies donated annually, SJV has contributed thousands of pies over the past decade.
On Thursday, November 29th from 3:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., the Barnes and Noble located at Brookfield Square Mall will host a book fair for St. John Vianney. A percentage of all the profits from merchandise sold will go to the school. The more items purchased, the greater percentage of sales that go back to SJV.
While it's a great way to stock up on Christmas gifts - from books to music to novelty items - it's also an opportunity to experience some of the vast talent of SJV students. The Shamrock Choir, the Band, and the String Orchestra will all be performing at the store throughout the evening. Students' artwork will also be displayed.
While the nation re-elected President Barack Obama to a second term in office on November 6th, the mock Presidential elections at St. John Vianney turned out differently.
After researching candidates and preparing speeches, four students, who were chosen by SJV Social Studies teacher and election coordinator Sue Schmitt, delivered those speeches to SJV fourth through fifth graders on Tuesday November 6th. After hearing the speeches, the students voted electronically.
This evening from 3:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., the Barnes and Noble located at Brookfield Square Mall will host a book fair for St. John Vianney. A percentage of all the profits from merchandise sold will go to the school.
Stock up on Christmas presents and enjoy artwork by SJV students while listening to music performed by the Shamrock Choir, the Band and the String Orchestra.
