School Spotlight

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.

With the sad realization that summer is winding down, the new school year brings the exciting news of recent Saint John Vianney school improvements.  With the help of guidance counselor Teri Kovars, I got the opportunity to tour the school the other day and see the recent changes.

  • For the first time ever, a new air conditioning system, something our students and staff will notice on those remaining hot September days.
  • Newly installed heating units.
  • Recently installed energy efficient windows and doors in the cafeteria.  In addition, a brand new brick wall was built around the windows to enhance the energy system.  The cafeteria floor was resurfaced and freshly painted, most notably the athletic stripes on the floor, as the room is often used as an auxiliary gym.
  • A freshly painted health room and school office, along with new chairs for waiting school visitors.
  • A new bench directly outside the school office, for the students to wait for carpools or busses.
  • Courtesy of the Bid for Kids monies - six new Smart Boards have been installed.  A seventh Smart Board, along with a supplemental computer program called SynchronEyes for the computer lab, was donated by a very generous school family.
  • Also courtesy of Bids for Kids - a new acoustic piano, a digital Clavinova piano, new desks in the 6th grade, new religion and language texts throughout the school, and a new concrete play area outside the K4 classroom.

Walking through the school, I could not help feeling that the new additions seem to reflect the pride and joy of the St. John Vianney community.  Along with our new principal, Mrs. Jayme Hartmann, we are also proud to introduce Mrs. Joyce Block as our computer teacher, Mrs. Gerise Grzeszczak as the Reading Specialist and Mrs. Jennifer Williams as a first grade teacher.  With all of this, we are truly blessed to have such a wonderful start!
