Introducing FVL's Core Values

Christ Centered, Family Focused, Relationship Driven, Humble Service, Pursuit of Excellence

These five core values are the basis for everything we do at FVL.

Veterans Day

FVL's annual observance of Veterans Day was held on November 11. Rev. Erich Schaser led the service, and guest speaker, Rev. Charlie Vannieuwenhoven (class of '90), gave a presentation on ministerial and military service.

Student Council members served breakfast to attendees.


Christmas Parade

Did you happen to catch the 50th annual Appleton Christmas Parade on November 23? FVL and FVL Schools were promotional sponsors of the event for the 7th straight year. This has been an excellent opportunity to share the ministry of our schools with viewers across NE Wisconsin. If you missed it, the parade will be rebroadcast on December 25 at 11:30 AM on WFRV. Watch for our commercials and representatives as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Savior of the world.
