JOG-A-THON: Our 80’s themed Jog-a-thon was a tremendous success! The students practiced the course in family groups on Wednesday. Then they hit the course full force Thursday afternoon. What a fun, community-building event! The students were so excited to see our Gator joining in on the fun
too. Of course, we couldn’t do this event without the many parent volunteers to mark laps and encourage the students to do their best. Some of our Gators are home this week under COVID precautions, so we will host a mini make-up Jog-a-thon for those students with family groups cheering them on in June. Donations turned in or entered by noon Monday will determine the top fundraising class! The class raising the most funds will win an ice cream popsicle party! Stay tuned for final fundraising numbers and prize winners in upcoming Ignatian letters! Fundraising allows our school to provide a top- notch Catholic values-based education in the Jesuit and Holy Names Sisters’ traditions.
CYO: Congratulations to our CYO track team at the city championships last weekend at Jesuit High School. Our team ran with heart and spirit while cheering each other on. Many medals were won and several photo finish races made for an exciting two day event! Way to go, Gators!
LEARNING: On Monday, our 2nd graders received their collaborative class book from Student Treasures publishing. They were so excited to read the beautiful book featuring their own writing and illustrations about where they would explore if they could go anywhere in the world.
MAY CROWNING: We are excited to host a May Crowning ceremony in outdoor family groups next week. Students may bring flowers to lay at Mary’s feet this Wednesday, May 25th.
COVID UPDATE: The Multnomah County Health Department, our local LPHA, is strongly recommending students and staff mask indoors in school. With our recent bout of cases, we have returned to indoor masking until our cases subside thereby keeping our school community as safe and healthy as possible. Thank you for your support to wear a mask indoors again.
SAFETY DRILLS: This week, we will have an Earthquake drill in school. Safety drills are important to practice, so our students remain calm and safe in a real emergency. Safety drills help our staff to practice what to do and how to proceed. From these drills, the staff can make modifications to improve safety processes
ACADEMIC FAIR: At this time, we plan to host an in-person Academic Fair on Thursday, June 2nd from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM throughout the school and Dillon Hall. We will ask all attendees to wear masks indoors. Air purifiers will be running with windows open. We will fog the rooms after the event on Thursday evening as well. We are so excited to bring back this wonderful, community-building event as students show off their academic prowess!
ENROLLMENT: We are actively seeking preschool students! We have room in kindergarten through third grade for next year and a few spots left for fifth and sixth grade too. Please spread the word about our wonderful school to all you know.
May our hearts be filled with joy and wonder throughout the Easter season. “Let your eyes look straight ahead and your gaze be focused forward. Survey the path for your feet, and all your ways will be sure.” Proverbs 4:25-26
