Students interested in US Government, our political system, our constitution, and our history, good news, there is an awesome opportunity for you: Harvard Model Congress is a 3-4 day simulation of the entire US Government, and is held each year on the Harvard Campus in Cambridge, MA. For obvious reasons, this year will be entirely online. The good news is that participation is available to you! But spots go quickly, and registration deadlines are fast approaching. For more information and details check in with Mr. Weiss in Colby 209 or by email ASAP!

 

Do you have an idea about how to improve your school and community? Are you looking for a club that offers you the opportunity to focus on your passions? SCOPE, which stands for “Students Creating Opportunities for Positive Engagement,” is a student-led, inclusive, leadership club where YOU design campaigns about what matters most to YOU. Are you invested in the environment? SCOPE promoted and expanded composting and other recycling efforts on campus last year. Want to facilitate student-led panel discussions about what matters most to students at SJA? Come plan with us! Interested in becoming part of a focus group for alternative arts programs in St J to get through the pandemic? Want to make kindness posters to lift other people’s spirits? Do you have a unique interest or idea to improve our local or global community? We want to hear from you! Complete the interest survey, and plan to meet with us this Wednesday or Thursday at 3 PM. Email Mrs. Morris ASAP at cmorris@stjacademy.org for the survey link and more information. Hope to see you there!
