Based on the latest hurricane forecast and guidance from local authorities, Jesuit High School’s campus will be closed from Tuesday, September 27 through Thursday, September 29. There will be no school activities these days. On Tuesday, classes will be conducted via asynchronous eLearning through Canvas. Assignments will be posted to course Canvas pages. Students who are able to access Canvas should check in with each class to keep up with content and work. Students who are unable to log on to Canvas due to hardship or circumstances caused by the storm will not be penalized. Tuesday afternoon, based on the projected trajectory of the storm and its effects, the school will provide subsequent communication regarding eLearning expectations for Wednesday and Thursday. Jesuit will continue to provide updates to parents via email, as well posts to the school website (www.jesuittampa.org), and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
For the better part of an hour on Thursday morning (Aug. 18), there was controlled chaos in Oliva Courtyard just outside of the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
There, most of Jesuit's 48 clubs had set up stations for the annual Clubs Open House. The respective club officers (and moderators) then set about educating and recruiting their 800+ fellow Jesuit students to join their club for the 2022-23 school year.
Clubs Open House, which is typically during the second week of the school year, is one of the biggest annual on-campus events. It has a major impact throughout the school year, as clubs at Jesuit provide students with myriad options for pursuing their passions.
On Thursday, hundreds of Jesuit students surveyed the dozens of enriching club options: service-oriented clubs, faith-related clubs, academic and pre-professional clubs, athletic clubs, and performing and fine arts clubs.
Many are newer clubs seeking to establish a foothold in Jesuit's robust club scene, such as the Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Club, Songwriting & Music Production, and the Flying Tigers/Aviation & Aerospace Club.
Others have quickly become fixtures in a few years' time and made a major impact on student life at Jesuit, such as the Pre-Medical Club, Native American Club, The Company/Business Club, African American Club, Outdoorsman Society, and Italian Club.
Many more are long-time, award-winning pillars of Jesuit student life, such as Robotics, Latin Club, Pro Life Club, Don't Feed the Artists, Rho Kappa, Altar Servers, Hockey, La Gente, Key Club, Pep Band, S.A.D.D., Peer Ministry, Masque (drama club), and the Environmental Club.
Through the school's varied and extensive club offerings, Jesuit students are developing their talents and leadership skills. Jesuit clubs are under the direction of the school's Director of Student Activities, Austin Freeman '02.
