We are actively engaged in building our Master Schedule. Based on the work gathering course requests our counselors performed with students this spring, we are building a schedule that will accommodate all of our student’s college prep needs and hopefully address all of their requests. Schedules will be available to our students and their families during the first week of July. An email will be sent notifying families of the available schedule in PowerSchool and will include instructions on how to request schedule changes if necessary.
Jesuit sends official final transcripts to universities based on the information reported in the 2020 College Questionnaire and Transcript Request survey. Seniors can locate this in the Naviance Student account at https://student.naviance.com/jhssac. Your password may need to be reset; if you have any trouble logging in, contact Ms. Kakar.

All students and student-athletes are invited to sign up for an opportunity to meet one-on-one through Zoom with Athletic Director Hank Weinberger to get insight into who they are as athletes. Students will get insight into what kind of athlete they are and learn how to translate that into success on the field, court and in the pool. To start this process, students just need to fill out a very brief form to indicate interest in this customized athletic assessment. After completing the two-minute survey, stude
Returning Athletic Uniforms & Clearing Out Athletic Lockers
Instructions will be coming for Spring athletes
Students do not need to return Jesuit athletic uniforms at this time. The Athletic Department will reach out to all spring sport athletes soon with more information about the process for returning Jesuit athletic uniforms as well as clearing out Jesuit athletic lockers.
In an effort to maintain appropriate social distancing, we are assigning specific windows of time for students that did not clear out their locker prior to the closure of campus to safely return and clear out both their regular school locker and their PE locker.
CSF (California Scholarship Federation) students will be offering free online tutoring via Zoom. Students who need some additional tutoring in a subject should join the CSF Digital Tutoring Classroom and use join code: oigepus. Instructions and notification for tutoring for certain subjects or tutors will be posted for each day with Zoom meet times, passwords and directions.
G.I.F.T. groups are open to all students. Expectations of small group members
- Participate in one online meeting a week, after the digital learning hours.
- Be open to growing in your faith.
We invite students to continue writing letters to isolated individuals, as outlined at the link below. If you’ve not yet done so, please consider it!
We are now building off of this opportunity and are looking for students to help with the following, in order to make a video recording of students to send to guests at assisted living facilities. We are looking for students who are:
Serve from Home
Ignatian Spirituality invites us to notice where God is at work in our daily lives. While we are under the Shelter-in-Place ordinance, how do you find yourselves responding to the invitation to be of service where you are? How have you experienced sheltering-in-place as an act of service in and of itself, in that you are caring for the common good and acting in solidarity with neighbors around the world? How are you of support to your family?
Given the current need for social distancing, many people are experiencing isolation in new, deeper ways. For people who were already isolated, this social distancing can be especially painful.
To respond to this reality, we will be inviting our students to engage in an optional service opportunity by writing a letter to a client or resident (or multiple clients or residents) at one of several non-profit agencies and programs.
During this time while we are apart, Grant Houle ’20, the religious coordinator, and Jonathan Fong ’20, the diocesan pastoral council student representative will be sharing a video daily prayer and examen beginning Monday, March 30, 2020.
In response to the current school closure, the Jesuit Sports Performance Team is committed to providing guidance and support not only to our students-athletes, but the entire school community while campus is closed. Physical and mental well-being is not something to be taken for granted, therefore we will continue to reference the current research and employ standard practices to provide the very best health advice. All current research supports this balanced, minimalistic protocol for promoting comprehensive wellness and basic human performance.
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).
- Students must wear a collared JHS-authorized logowear shirt to school each day.
- Sweatshirts and outerwear may also be worn so long as they are JHS-authorized logowear.
How do I get started?
The PowerSchool Parent Access System is intended to provide parents, students and teachers with a tool to communicate student performance. It is a Web-based application that may be accessed from any place the parent/guardian can access the Internet. The application is a secure link that encrypts the data to and from the end user. In addition, a username and password are provided to allow access for only authorized users to the appropriate student record.
Help students establish meaningful post-secondary goals and connect those goals with their coursework and college planning activities.
As you head into finals week next week remember that while it is important to strive for your best on your exams, your health and well-being is even more important. As the posters around campus highlight from the Impact Distracted Driving campaign: Instincts Matter. Instincts matter when you are driving, and instincts matter in our everyday experiences with ourselves and others. Pause, assess, and if necessary Speak Up.
Here are some common letters of recommendation questions that we get from students during the college application cycle. This is the same information that we communicated to students and parents in our college information nights, college advising meetings, and during collaboration periods. We thought it may be useful to have this information in a cohesive and easily accessible document for your reference.
