At the start of the second quarter at Jesuit High School
Sacramento, a schedule change was made. The new addition was
Mid-Week Support Wednesdays, a day off from classes breaking
up the school week to provide students a break from the
hard work they have been doing and to take time to recuperate.
Each year, a new group of Jesuit High School Sacramento graduates
head off to college. While Jesuit alumni attend a diverse set of
colleges, located all across the country, a small school in
Moraga, California has long been a popular choice.
Update: The “Swing into Senior Year” event has been
postponed. The decision was made after Sacramento County, along
with eleven other counties, reverted back to California’s most
restrictive purple tier as case rates have recently seen an
increase across the state.
“Among Us” came out more than two years ago, but has only now
become a mainstream sensation. First released on June 15, 2018,
the game has peaked this year with 438,524 concurrent players
solely on the video game service, Steam.
COVID-19 has brought many changes to our daily lives. Everything
from attending school to getting groceries has a much different
look due to the pandemic. Another aspect that has changed is our
ability to worship.
While the main focus of the 2020 election is seemingly on the two
presidential candidates, President Donald Trump and former Vice
President Joe Biden, the job of a voter goes beyond just
selecting the next president of the United States.
Ahead of the long-awaited return to campus, the Jesuit High
School Sacramento Community spent Oct. 12-16 in a transitional
orientation where all returning members participated in the
biggest story of the week: the COVID-19 test.
With the 2020 presidential election just a week away, the
American people will choose between President Donald Trump and
former Vice President Joe Biden to occupy the Oval Office for the
next four years.
On Sunday, Oct. 18, Jesuit high school West Coast students hosted
a Ballot Education Night as a way to gather and teach about the
different aspects of the ballot and how California voters can
impact law based on their vote on the various propositions.
Seven months after in-person classes were suddenly interrupted by
the COVID-19 pandemic, Jesuit High School Sacramento is prepared
to make its return to campus with a hybrid class schedule and
heightened safety protocols beginning Oct. 20.
As one of the more notable events Jesuit High School Sacramento
hosts each year, Open House is an opportunity for the school to
showcase what makes attending the institution “a life-building
experience.” But, due the pandemic, the annual gathering of
potential students will have a much different look.
With the pandemic limiting most in-person interaction, it’s
understandable that some people have struggled to find something
to pass the time. But even during an age of routine isolation,
many members of the Jesuit High School Sacramento community have
still found ways to stay busy.
For the Jesuit High School Sacramento community, much has changed
due to the pandemic. While academics and athletics look notably
different, another part of Jesuit that has been forced to make
adjustments has been Jesuit Drama. The program has gone from
in-person shows and rehearsals in the Black Box theatre to Zoom
meetings, and performances over live streams.
Despite classes moving online, athletics being pushed back, and a
number of changes happening at Jesuit High School Sacramento due
to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s still one thing that remains
the same: the dress code.
This school year, being a senior Big Brother at Jesuit High
School Sacramento has held a different meaning than ever before.
Due to COVID-19, Big Brothers were unable to host the welcoming
Freshmen Overnight Retreat, forcing new plans to be made for
connecting the Jesuit brotherhood.
