teacher and coach, and the latter as a counselor and assistant
My favorite Jesuit memory came on Freshman Overnight.

Frosh Overnight. We had arrived in the morning, before our Little

Director of Liturgy and Theology Teacher Ms. Charlene Cardenas
started teaching at Jesuit High School Sacramento in 2002 when
the Class of 2020 were infants or yet to be born. Now, as the
Class of 2020 graduates, she prepares to retire.
Every morning and afternoon, hundreds of students and dozens of
teachers and faculty flood in and out of Jesuit High School’s
parking lots. For most, the lots are just a symbol of commuting
drudgery, a dull back-and-forth between school and home. For
others, the lots, as well as the commutes, hold their most prized
possessions — their cars.
Each year, Jesuit High School Drama puts on two shows in the
Black Box Theater — a fall play and a spring musical. Production
for each of these shows requires hours of dedication from actors
and technicians to create polished and memorable performances.
