Students, Parents and Friends,
This summer class will orient incoming Freshmen to Jesuit High School Sacramento in a way that will help them focus more on what they need to do to be successful and focus less on the acclimation issues that can be distracting for our young men when they start school next Fall. Students will become more comfortable and ready to start their classes as Freshmen by getting to know the campus, meeting some of their new teachers and classmates, and understanding expectations as members of the Class of 2024.
Discover how a panoramic playground of mountains, rivers, and forests plays an important role in student life—academic and otherwise—as you visit colleges and universities across the Pacific Northwest. This is an excellent opportunity for your son to visit a wide variety of schools and discover what will be the right fit. Traveling with a group removes the headache and expense of your family planning a trip across the country, buying multiple plane tickets, renting a car, finding hotel rooms, and designing an itinerary.

Campus Security: Pick-up and Drop-off Procedures
Please take note of these important procedures for picking-up and dropping-off during the school day.
If you need to pick-up or drop-off an item for your son during the school day, please do so on Jacob Lane through the Dean’s Office, and not from the Fair Oaks entrance near the Gym/Harris Center area. Our Campus Security Team works hard to identify people who are coming onto campus during the course of the school day and your attention to this drop-off/pick-up procedure will help them to maintain the safety of everyone on campus. If you would like to have your son come out to the car to pick-up an item so that you do not have to get out of the car, please have him check
2020-21 Calendar Update: Student Mid-Semester Break
Significant change for next year's school calendar
This message aims to explain one relatively significant change to the calendar. For the 2020-21 school year, we are introducing a Student Mid-Semester Break from Monday, February 15 – Friday, February 19. One main consideration behind adding this break to the schedule is the concern for the long stretch of class time between the start of the Spring Semester and Easter Break. This long stretch can create fatigue for both teachers and students, which we are sensitive to for both populations.
Beginning January 17 until March 6, students will meet with their counselors during Collaboration Periods to make scheduling requests for the upcoming school year courses. After Collaboration, students should go over their requests with their parents. Following Collaboration, counselors will begin meeting with students one-on-one to finalize their course requests. At the individual student meeting, students will be handed the Graduation Progress and Course Selection sheet.

What is a Collaboration Period?
Most Wednesdays begin with a “Collaboration Period” which run from 8:15-9:30 a.m. Some Collaboration Periods are used for faculty and some are used for students.
Collaboration Periods for faculty include things like Professional Learning Community meetings and additional department meeting time (for things like year-level meetings or interdepartmental collaboration).
NOTICE WORLD LANGUAGE BOOK UPDATE Aug 7, 2019
We are continuing to work with EMC Publishing (the providers of our World Language books) to address the issue of book purchasing for our parents on their website. The books are now available; please follow the instructions carefully to ensure you are purchasing the correct books. Remember, you do not need to purchase both the ebook and the textbook; you may choose one or the other. However, every student will need the workbook.
