An important announcement from the Make it Better Club: Tomorrow the Recharge Room in the library will finally go live! Look for the signs that guide you to the space. Remember to only use the room when you feel stressed, use it for only 10-15 mins, clean up after yourself, and please put away the screens. Most importantly, de-stress and feel better! We appreciate your efforts and hope that this will be a great addition to how we support strong mental health at St J.

Of course you do. You must see Mr. Weiss for permission slips and boot sizing, so get yourself to Colby 209 ASAP to secure a spot on the trip. No experience necessary, and all gear will be provided. Let’s get after it!

March Book Madness is coming. The Library needs your help! We want to know: what were your favorite books from when you were younger? Maybe it was a picture book like The Velveteen Rabbit. Maybe a chapter book or a series like The Chronicles of Narnia. Maybe you had all sorts of favorites. Please check your email for a message entitled, “March Book Madness,” and complete the questionnaire. Your answers will be tabulated and the 16 most popular books from way-back-when will then go head-to-head through March Madness. Thank you!


Happy Birthday today to Levi Breton, Luis Pena Tejada, John Scrimgeour, and Connor Turner!
