White Cohort Day

 

All Students, Faculty, and Staff: Don’t forget to get your lunch orders for next week in by 8:45am today!

 

Students—anyone who did not have their photo taken for the yearbook are asked to stop by Fuller Hall today between 8:30am and 3:00pm to have your photo taken.

 

Tonight at 5:00 via Zoom, the Academy is hosting constitutional scholar, Natalia Torres Zuniga. Dr. Torres, who is Peruvian, will join us from her home in Norway and will give a presentation about how the constitutions of Peru and Chile are threatened by corruption and neoliberalism. If you’re interested in Latin America or in government and law, this presentation will deepen your understandings of culture and governance, and it will also likely help you better understand the crises currently facing the United States. Please see or email Mr. Ehrean at gehrean@stjacademy.org so that he can give you the Zoom link. Parents and community members are also free to attend. 

 

Attention writers and artists: use the weekend to work on your submissions to the Clear River Review! The submission form is available at http://bit.ly/clearriver, which you can also access via QuickLinks on the Academy webpage. Please contact Mrs. Mackenzie or Ms. Drew with any questions.

 

Math Club will be meeting today in Fuller Basement at 3:20pm. All are welcome to join us for some socializing brain exercising as we tackle our 4th monthly challenge from Math League.

 

Attention past, present, and future AP Seminar students: remember Spoon? Yes, Jeremy Spoon, the author of “Tourism, Persistence, and Change.” He will share lessons learned and recommendations from research on rural and Indigenous disaster recoveries in Nepal and the relevance of these findings to the Pacific Northwest/Cascadia region. He is giving this talk on Zoom today at 3:00. Anyone is welcome to attend, not just the Seminar students who have studied Spoon’s work. Email Ms. Drew at angela.drew@stjlabs.com for information on how to register! 

 

Attention Seniors: You might have noticed that Senior T-shirts are in!

In-person Seniors received their T-shirt from their advisor on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Rest assured, if you haven’t received yours yet, your advisor has it! If you are all online, please make arrangements to pick yours up with your advisor.

If you are a Virtual Academy Senior, you can expect your t-shirts to be shipped to you in the hopefully not-too-distant future. 

Once you get your t-shirt, you can wear it when you attend classes online. Mr. Dussault plans to wear his on Fridays.

Once Senior Privileges have been set, we will announce when hybrid and everyday Seniors can start to wear theirs to school. Stay tuned!

 

Happy Birthday today to Millie Clarner.
