If you like movies, sports, competition, friendship, action, hopes, dreams, or loooooooooove, then we have the perfect Friday night plan for you! Come to the “Love & Basketball” movie night in the Black Box Theater tonight, beginning at 7pm, hosted by the Student Diversity Council. Tonight. 7pm. Black Box. 


The students traveling to India will be visiting what is called a creche, a daycare and school combined. Mya Pushee is looking for donations to bring to the children at the creche for her capstone about child poverty in India. Great donations would be things like sports equipment, such as a deflated soccer ball, coloring books, crayons, pencils, and other toys age appropriate for younger children. Collection boxes will be in the Tinker House from April 3rd to the 7th. As we are already working with an organization to donate books, we ask that donations do not include books.


Attention: If you are interested in the London/Paris trip next February with Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Kendall, please make sure you email Abigail Murphy at abigail.murphy@stjlabs.com, not Melissa Murphy. 


Today is the deadline for all students who want to participate in the Academy’s Model United Nations Conference on April 8. We are offering two committees that will be good for both beginners and experienced delegates. One committee will tackle the topic of geo-engineering and will discuss whether and how mankind should purposely tune the Earth’s climate in order to mitigate the effects of global warming. The other committee will try to solve a political crisis in Peru by writing a new constitution for it. If you would like to participate, please email or speak to Mr. Ehrean.


All athletes, in season or not, are welcome to join in the Academy’s first ever Student Athlete Advisory Council or SAAC meeting today after school in the concession area next to Alumni Gymnasium. This is a great opportunity for athletes to advocate for what they want to see in athletics while we kick off the advisory council. This meeting will be brief and outline our initiatives for this spring season. We hope to see you there!


The winner of the Library’s March Madness Tournament for the Academy’s most beloved nostalgic book is the Harry Potter series! It was a very close Final Round, with the narrowest possible margin determining the winner. Thank you for your participation! Prior to the tournament, many students predicted that Potter would prevail. Angie Lumbra is the winner of the randomly drawn prediction competition. Please come to the circulation desk in the library to claim your prize!


The Intro to Human Services classes are inviting advisories to participate in an item drive competition to support youth involved with DCF/Family Services. Family Services provides support to children in foster care and needs our help to replenish toiletry supplies (shampoo, soap, hygiene items) and gift cards. Toiletry items are provided to youth experiencing emergency home placements due to abuse or neglect, as they often arrive in those placements with very little. DCF is also in need of gift cards, which are used to meet the social needs (like going to the movies or celebrating birthdays) of those youth. Members of the SJA community are asked to drop off donations to Streeter 225, Mrs. McGarvin’s room. Be sure to include the name of your advisory at drop off to be in the running for a fabulous prize! This drive will run for two weeks, with the winning advisory announced on Friday April 14th.


Happy Birthday today to Siri Dunn and Riley Mathews! Happy Birthday tomorrow to Anna Casciari, Garson Cass, Grayson Cass, and Kevin Zheng, and on Sunday to Brooke Haggett! A special Happy Birthday on Saturday to Emma Marceau from her advisory!
