Green Cohort Day


All Students, Faculty, and Staff: Don’t forget to order your lunch today for next week! Please do so by clicking on the link on your Advisory Page in Canvas. The link will close tomorrow morning at 8:45 a.m.


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


The fashion program is seeking models of all body types and gender expressions for this year’s fashion show! Please stop by Morse 201! Sign-ups will continue today, Wednesday, 1/20 for the Green cohort. If you were signed up as a model last year, we’d love to have you back! Keep an eye on your email. If you have any questions or couldn’t sign up yesterday, please email Ms. Charow at emma.charow@stjlabs.com.


SCOPE will hold an online meeting today at 3:10 on Zoom. Please use the link Mrs. Morris sent to you. If you’re interested in learning about or joining SCOPE, we always welcome new members and ideas—hope to see you there!


Thursday Skins with the Outing Club will start tomorrow at 3:15 on Brantview Drive. “Skinning”, or Alpine Touring, is the act of climbing up a mountain and skiing down it. Mr. Bentley will be taking a small bus to Burke each Thursday this winter to skin the mountain. In order to participate, you will need to have your own equipment (including a helmet and backpack), an adequate headlamp, and a signed permission form if you are a day student. Come and see Mr. Bentley in Ranger 209 for signups, questions and permission forms, or email at james.bentley@stjlabs.com. Space is limited to 6 students, and some loaner gear may be available. Our first skin will meet at Brantview Drive tomorrow at 3:15pm.


Tomorrow at 5:00pm 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 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 tomorrow at 3:00pm. 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! 


Happy Birthday today to Anna Robertson, Elizabeth Mastroianni-Douglass, and Catherine Mastroianni-Douglass.
