My daughter attended St. John Vianney School from TK – 8 th grade and was beyond prepared to enter her college prep high school because of the wonderful teachers and staff. When COVID first hit, SJV sent our children home on a Friday in March 2020 with classwork, books, and other materials. We expected to be out for two weeks. Two weeks, turned into the rest of the school year and SJV did not miss a beat. By the end of the first two weeks, we already picked up the rest of our children’s materials from school and were ready for distance learning from March – June 2020. Our children were so fortunate that the SJV staff was prepared and ready. When my husband passed away in August 2020, the community at SJV rallied behind our family and showered us with prayers and support that was beyond measure. St. John Vianney School taught my children Catholic values, provided them with high academic curriculum, and showed them and me, the true meaning of family and community.
