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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
