St. John Vianney has submitted our plan to the New York State Health Department and the New York State Education Department. You may read the reopening plan below.
This year’s Campaign will be used to strengthen our school as we enter into the 2020-2021 school year, a year like no other in our 60 year history. We ask for your support in four specific areas of our COVID-19 response and readiness plans.

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!
