Neighborhood Service

Neighborhood Service

Jesuit High School returned to school on Friday (Sept. 15) after a week of school closure due to Hurricane Irma.

During this week, Jesuit students and staff have been assisting many in need in the aftermath of the hurricane. Wednesday morning, about 30 students and a dozen staff, after cleaning up debris from the Jesuit campus, took to the Plaza Terrace neighborhood, providing cases of water and yard clean-up for the surrounding homes. (Homepage photo: Carter Campbell '19, Nick Muir '19, and Mitchell Johnson '19 were among those helping Jesuit's Plaza Terrace neighbors.) At the same time, hundreds of students provided service and assistance in their respective neighborhoods throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Many students and staff also have been helping community service organizations such as Trinity Cafe, as well as local schools, shelters, and churches. Saturday, school president Fr. Richard C. Hermes, S.J. and a contingent of Jesuit students are headed to Belle Glade near Lake Okeechobee to assist that rural community in its clean-up efforts, while Environmental Club moderator Vindri Gajadhar and club members will take part in a clean-up at McKay Bay Nature Park. 

Many Jesuit events, including the Jesuit at Jefferson football game scheduled for Friday night (Sept. 15), and the Sept. 9 ACT testing at Jesuit (which has been rescheduled for Sept. 23), have been cancelled or postponed. Please stay alert for information about rescheduled events. The pep rally originally scheduled for Friday (Sept. 15) has been moved to Fri. Sept. 22.
