Pacific Northwest College Tour Information Meeting
Pacific Northwest Summer 2020 College Tour Information Meeting
This school year, the Jesuit Counseling Department ill be taking students current sophomores and juniors on an immersive college orientation program where we will visit college campuses, meet admission representatives, participate in workshops, talk with current college students, and gain professional insight on college admissions. Colleges we are visiting may include Seattle University, University of Washington, University of Puget Sound, University of Portland, Lewis & Clark College, Willamette University, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon.
Jesuit’s Mock Trial team is looking for students in grades 9-12 who are interested in participating on the team. Last year’s team had its best season ever. For students who might be considering a future career in the field of law, Mock Trial is a great way to learn more about that career aspiration. If you are a parent interested in volunteering to assist the team, please contact Coach Landon Bailey (Mason ’23) or Assistant Principal Fadia Desmond.
Take part in this amazing tradition
Help us extend a warm welcome to seven basketball teams traveling to Jesuit High School to compete in our annual Fr. Barry Christmas Classic. Our community tradition has been for Jesuit families to open their home and host a couple of players from one of the teams during their stay In the Sacramento area. Teams will ask for two or three-day accommodations with you. The dates this year are Thursday, December 12, 2019, and Friday, December 13, 2019, for teams staying only two days.
If you are a student currently enrolled in an AP Class, you should have already created an account and joined your class(es) using the join codes supplied by your teacher. Doing so will automatically result in your registration for the AP Test in your subject areas. If you have yet to join your AP Class, it is imperative that you do so prior to the priority registration of October 4, 2019 to avoid any potential late fees being assessed.

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.
