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.
Sunday, January 29th kicks off Catholic Education Week at Catholic Schools all over the country. St. John Vianney will have school families participating in all masses this weekend – as greeters, ushers and gift bearers. An Open House begins at noon on Sunday. All are welcome to come see the classrooms, meet the teachers and look at the projects the students have on display. Tours will be available and refreshments will be offered in the cafeteria.
The students will celebrate Catholic Education Week with special activities each day.
