For the fourth quarter, our final recipient for the Medal of Honor at SJV is Allison Gutierrez. The characteristic focus for this quarter is “service before self”. Allison has shown this characteristic throughout the school year! She is the type of student that is always putting other’s needs before her own. Allison is always holding the door open for her entire class or the entire middle school. She holds the door for teachers as well. She is willing to give up her free time to help out another student or teacher. And she does this without even thinking about it. Allison is a kind, generous, and unselfish student. We are very proud to have a student like Allison in our school! Congratulations Allison!
Thank you to everyone who voted for St. John Vianney in the Main Street Besties Awards this year. We were blessed to be voted the “Best Private School,” in addition to being a top 3 finalist in the “Best Elementary School,” “Best Junior High,” and “Best Headmaster/Principal” categories. Thank you for your love and support!
Six of the seven alumni from the SJV eighth grade Class of 2012 graduated from JPII on Sunday. The students themselves decided it was important to get one last picture of their SJV class at their high school graduation. This speaks volumes of the bonds that our students form here at SJV during their elementary years. May God bless these students as they move on to Aquinas College, Northeastern University, Tennessee Technological University, and the University of Tennessee – Chattanooga.
Congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade classes for participating in the Light of Leadership mass this morning. The Class of 2016 attended all-school mass for the final time, and passed the “light of leadership” to the Class of 2017.
