Diligence- To be steadfast.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him
Hello Staff, Parents and friends of St John Vianney Family,
We have had a great week. So far the highlight is the Oregon Trail trip we had in third grade. We prayed for a clear day and we were rain free. If you remember it was quite rainy in the late afternoon and throughout the evening. We want to thank Jesus for holding up the rain for our pioneers of the Oregon Trail.
Next week, the running club is not starting. Running club is rescheduled to start on October 22nd so there will not be a running club at all next week. It is a week later than what is on our calendar so please make note of that.
Also on Thursday of next week we have our Special Persons Day. The Special Persons can come from 9:00 until after our 10:30 mass. Our Powers all school mass for our middle school will be on Friday, October 19th. Stay tuned for details next week.
Our Auction meeting is 7:00 next week for those who can help. It is a fun way to meet SJV family and take care of volunteer hours as well.
This week our seventh and eighth graders started their Leadership Training sessions. It will continue for two more weeks. The middle school, grades 6th -8th will have a chance to have mass with our Powers Catholic high school down the street on Friday, October 19th. We look forward to a blessed time with them.
May the Lord continue to bless and guide each of us as we work to further His kingdom.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Diligence- To be steadfast.
Dear Parents, staff and families of St John Vianney,
Peace be with you!
I wanted to wait until after the Powers Catholic high School homecoming parade to send the newsletter. It was great to see our families and friends there as well as enjoy the students at Powers. In spite of the rain the event was full of fun, laughter and building new acquaintances. I want to thank our fourth grade student, Abram Lovett for carrying our school banner during the parade. You did a great job, Abram!
This week we will start our school store sales. Students will bring home the information in a white envelop next week. This is a school fundraiser but does not require selling items. When you shop online, our school earns money. Look for the envelope coming home this week for details. On Wednesday, seventh and eighth graders will start their leadership training classes. The class will be offered for three weeks and covers topics like being intentional, mindfulness, decision making and goal setting. We look forward to harnessing the skills our students will gain in these sessions.
Fr. Firestone has challenged the students to a homework competition. He promises that if every student in one or all the grades can bring their homework each day for one week he will buy the class a reward. I think pizza was mentioned! Maybe in the last three weeks of this quarter we will attempt to pick a week and take on his challenge. Stay tuned!
May the Lord Jesus continue to bless and guide each of us as we seek to know, love and serve Him and one another.
