Message from our principal, Mrs. Hider
The St. John Vianney
Catholic School faculty and staff accept the great responsibility of educating
our future. We accept this awesome responsibility with humility, vigor,
compassion and courage. We pledge to you our passion for the individual
security, safety and success of each child. We offer our unfailing desire to
serve our students and our community and to give them the necessary skills to
become competent problem solvers and outstanding faith-filled citizens! What
parents’ value or believe defines what is important to their children. When you
value faith and education and believe it is important, so will your children.
Our partnership with you in this shared value is critical. Your child’s
education is our priority!
The St. John Vianney team, parents, and surrounding community share a common
vision. We strive to provide rigorous academic programming, steeped in our
Catholic values, in a safe, warm and nurturing learning environment, where
students can blossom and grow as Disciples of Christ and leaders for today and
tomorrow. It is our goal that all students will leave St. John
Vianney able to read, write, and compute at successful levels that will enable
them to experience academic success, to be ready to enter high school and will have developed an
understanding and relationship with Jesus Christ.
To ensure this success, the St. John Vianney faculty and staff are dedicated to
the use of sound instructional practices and high quality instructional
materials, including the integration of technology throughout the curriculum.
Our instructional programs combine skill instruction, phonics, cognitively
guided instruction in math, and literacy instruction that are embedded within a
meaningful context throughout our curriculum. Our focus is that students will
develop a strong academic core and through the use of technology and an
intentional focus on meeting the needs of each individual learner.
I am excited to be working with such a talented and dedicated staff in a school
where parents are supportive of our efforts. Children are our greatest natural
resource. We take seriously our responsibility to nourish, protect and develop
children to their fullest potential. I look forward to working alongside each
of you through the school year at various volunteering opportunities. Thank you
for your trust in us and choosing St. John Vianney as your school of choice!
