St. John Vianney

The first father-daughter dance was filled with fun, laughter and lots of dancing.

The K4 kids at SJV enjoyed a special "Day with their Dads." The boys and girls prepared portraits of their dads and a special handprint poem. The children presented their dads with a homemade tie and sang songs for them. They ended their celebration with a dance party. Everyone had a good time!

Fourth-graders new to the band program were very proud to show off their new musical skills. They participated in their very first band concert, playing for their fellow fourth-graders.

In seventh grade English/Language Arts, students created an emoji timeline to represent the various moods in "Dark They Were, and Golden-Eyed." In pairs, they selected an emoji to showcase the mood of a particular part in the story. Students then had to justify why they selected each emoji using evidence from the story. In the end, the students discovered how the story impacted their own mood as they read.

Eighth-graders had a great time demonstrating how friction can affect speed. Students had the task of building their own ramp out of cardboard and books. Next, students chose three different surfaces in which to test friction. After students made predictions, they put their ramps to the test by running a toy car down the ramp, onto the surface samples, and recorded the speed and distance.

The eighth-grade girls placed third in the St. Matthias basketball tournament this past weekend. Congratulations!

With head Coach Mike Brown at the helm, the fifth-grade Lady Shamrocks won the fifth grade St. Dominic's annual tournament! Come cheer on this amazing group of girls at the next home game at 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18.

The tournament offers students in grades 3-8 the opportunity to enhance their public speaking skills by presenting selections from a wide range of categories including prose, poetry, group acting, infomercial, along with several other categories. Middle school students will be going on to compete in several other tournaments as they work toward qualifying for the state tournament.
