MEET OUR FACULTY & STAFF

PRINCIPAL

Mrs. Heidi Reith


On behalf of the St. John Vianney School Staff, I would like to welcome you to our school community.  As a graduate of St. John Vianney Class of 1993, I am excited to share with you our traditions from our Catholic Faith and educational program that have been part of my family since the 1950’s, as well as the new programs and events that our amazing teachers have been working on here at SJV.


During the summer months our teachers have been busy using our ipads to create new video lessons in preparation for our Flipped Classroom initiative. Those videos will be used to enhance our classroom lessons and activities, alongside the use of our Interactive Notebooks. Students will be able to view lessons at home and come to class ready to tackle the challenging objectives and really dive into the content.  The Interactive Notebook series will provide students with a structured note taking process and keep them engaged. With the use of our ipads and chromebooks, we will continue to use Study Island, a web based program that uses interactive lessons, videos and test preparation to increase skill mastery in Math and Language Arts for all grades. Grades 3 through 8 will also be using Study Island to build Science skills. 


We are excited to begin our new school year and look forward to working with all our students and families.  I am privileged to be serving the SJV families, students and staff and I invite you to become part of our legacy as we begin a new journey together this school year.

Favorite Bible Verse
“For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
Matthew 18:20
What I love about SJV
I love that St John Vianney School is a place where a Kindergarten child feels free to make the comment, "I can’t wait to see Jesus so that I can give him a hug and tell him I love him." 
They say this because it is a place where they are taught, by wonderful adults, to truly feel the love of Our Savior.

Favorite Bible VerseThen children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” After he placed his hands on them, he went away.” Matt 19:13-15
What I love about SJVI really enjoy seeing how children display excitement and enthusiasm when they achieve success, whether academically or religiously. I also enjoy the sense of humor and friendship of my colleagues.

I have loved St. John Vianney School from the moment I set foot in the school. I know this is where our Lord wanted me and I couldn’t be happier. First and foremost, I was attracted to the solid Catholic formation, and character education taught at the school, the warmth the students and teachers displayed towards one another and lastly, our students are receiving a progressive education required to make sure they meet and exceed the 21st century expectations.

What I love about SJV
When I first came to SJV to enroll my daughters, it was because of the compassion and dedication that I saw and felt from each of the faculty and staff.  I love that my daughters call SJV their home away from home. It is a wonderful family atmosphere in which we have the opportunity of sharing Christ with students each day while excelling academically. At SJV, we make it our goal to treat our families with respect and compassion.
