District Faith Theme
The greatest promise for all of our students this year will be a new faith theme. Along with the other schools in our district, we at VJM are, Casting Our Nets; Evangelizing God's People. To this end, VJM will continue its proud legacy of focusing on community service and social justice projects, as well as exploring ways to enhance faith discovery within the classroom and celebrations that are held throughout the school year.
