St. John Vianney Home & School Association

Home and School Mission:

The mission of the St. John Vianney Home and School Association is to advance the welfare of the students in the school through the coordinated efforts of parents, teachers and students. Home and School will also provide financial aid and assistance for special projects, educational media, activities, and events for the benefit of the students and the school.

The Home and School Association is composed of you the parents or guardians of any student at St. John Vianney School. The officers of the Home and School consist of First Co-President, Second Co-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Volunteer Coordinator.

Home and school provides funding for some projects and functions that aren’t always visible. Listed below are some of the areas we participate in during the year:

Paying a fee to Kent Intermediate School District enables St. John Vianney to take advantage of the inner-mail system and the rental of audio-visual equipment.

For the past several years, the Home and School has given a monetary token of appreciation to each teacher at the beginning of the school year. It is used at each teachers discretion. We also provide two teacher luncheons during conferences, a small Christmas gift during the holidays, and a small monthly “teacher appreciation” item.

Every year Home and School gives a scholarship to one boy and one girl who is continuing their Christian education at Catholic Central or West Catholic High School.

Home and School gives a rose bush to any family who’s youngest or only child is graduating from the eighth grade. A small but lasting way to say good-bye and thank you.

We provide Christmas shopping days for students to purchase gifts at a reasonable price.

Home and School has played a major role in updating the school library. The fall book fair provides the funds by which we purchase new books and materials for the library.
If interested in volunteering please email: home&


Home and School solicits volunteers to coordinate and promote these events.

St. John Vianney Athletic Boosters

The SJV Boosters is a service organization whose objective is to sponsor the sports program for boys and girls at St. John Vianney Catholic School. It also assists in maintaining the athletic facilities. Membership is open to all parishioners and any parent of a child attending St. John Vianney School. The SJV Boosters are accountable to the School Commission through the Athletic Director or a designated representative. The SJV Boosters sponsor, staff and maintain a concession stand at sporting events at St. John Vianney. They also participated in such fund raising activities such as chocolate sales and Lenten Fish Fries. All members are encouraged to assist in these worthwhile activities to fund equipment purchases, league and tournament fees, facility upkeep and improvements, as well as many other things which help make our sports program one of the best in the Diocese.

St. John Vianney Box Tops Program


Coordinator for 2019-2020
Jenny Korte



Most Box Tops are worth 10 cents, but there are bonus Box Tops that can be worth more than that. Box Tops must have a visible date on it or they will not accept them.  Box Tops with an expired date on them will not be accepted or added to our check payment.
SJV school receives a check in the amount of what we collect throughout the year and turn in.  This money goes toward school activities such as the Father/Daughter dance, the Mother/Son event, skating parties, Popcorn days and the Year End Party, which are all sponsored by Home & School.

Tyson Chicken product labels are worth 24 cents each.  They work like the Box Tops program.  We redeem them for cash to go toward Home & School sponsored events. Tyson has no expiration dates and are good any time.  Most of their products have the little chalkboard picture with an “A+” on it.  That is what we send in. Tyson does not currently have this available on their fresh, packaged chicken.  This program is only available on their frozen products.

Generally, SJV school, along with the parish, raises approximately $2000 or more each year.


There will usually be one or two contests during the school year.  Students are to turn in their UPCs, lids, Tyson labels and box tops to their teachers at that time.
