Welcome Back

Welcome Back

Jesuit High School’s students returned to campus this week, beginning the Spring 2024 semester on Thursday, January 4. School resumed with a full day of classes following the two-week Christmas break.

During the holiday, Jesuit’s sports teams competed in multiple events. The basketball team finished as runner-up at the Cookie Garcia Jesuit Invitational, and the wrestling team was runner-up at the prestigious Prep Slam in Atlanta. Wrestling also captured the District Duals title for the 7th straight year, and will host the Region Duals at Jesuit on Thursday (Jan. 11) at 6:00pm.

Many students also served those less fortunate and their community during the break. Among them was a group of seniors led by Gus Baier ’24 (pictured below). They solicited donations for luminaries, which they placed along the road throughout their neighborhood at Christmas. Their fundraising generated an additional $1,640, which was donated to Metropolitan Ministries. Basketball player Julian Parker ’24 was featured on Spectrum Bay News 9 for helping provide presents for migrant children through the Jesuit basketball team and for children at All Children's Hospital as a leader of the Class of 2024 Toy Drive

On Friday (Jan. 5), the Jesuit soccer team welcomed their Jesuit brethren from Colegio San Ignacio in Puerto Rico to campus for the day (pictured on the homepage), with the San Ignacio students shadowing the Jesuit students in their classes throughout the day. The teams had played to a 1-1 tie on Wednesday (Jan. 3), and won their respective opening match of the prestigious Tampa Bay Invitational tournament on Thursday (Jan. 4).

The first all school Mass will be on Monday (Jan. 8), to celebrate the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Note: This is a date change from the original school calendar, and it will be the first school Mass ever to celebrate this feast. Other upcoming events include a free concert by the University of Notre Dame Chorale in the Chapel of the Holy Cross on Monday (Jan. 8) at 7:00pm; the Dr. Martin Luthur King Jr. holiday on Jan. 15; the March for Life trip to Washington, D.C. on Jan. 17-20; and Career Day is Jan. 31.

A group of Jesuit seniors solicited donations for luminaries that they placed along the road throughout their neighborhood at Christmas, and they also raised an additional $1,640 that was donated to Metropolitan Ministries: Jack Burkard, Jake Barbose, Zack Barbose, Vincent Caranante, Ben Goldman, Tristan Stavish, Gunnar Graham, Nick Robbins, Dean Lucas, Chris Clasen, and Liam Maloney.
