Education is Essential

COVID-19 has presented a tremendous challenge for Saint Ignatius High School to balance our mission of providing an academically rigorous, Catholic, Jesuit education along with the health and safety recommendations of leading healthcare experts. On Monday, March 15, students returned to full-day, in-person learning.

All Students:  As the first semester ends soon, it is time to double-check your second semester schedule. Look on PowerSchool on the Sem 2 tab. Be sure you have at least six classes. Some schedules have changed since they were published in August. Be sure you know where to go on January 8, which is the first day of the 2nd semester. If you have issues with your schedule, see or email your counselor as soon as possible. Thank you.
 
SJA Musical: Ignatius students interested in participating in the Saint Joseph Academy spring musical, Newsies, are invited to an informational meeting this Tuesday at 3:30 in the school's auditorium. The show runs April 5-7 and 12-14. If you have any questions, please Email Mrs. Ising at aIsing@sjastudents.org.

PEN OHIO WRITING TOURNAMENT:  St.  Ignatius Young Authors Club will be competing in the Pen Ohio Creative Writing Tournament in March.  If you are interested in joining us, we still have some spots available the J.V. and Varsity teams.  Please contact Mrs. Colborn (ecolborn@ignatius.edu) if you are interested.
 
BLUE AND GOLD DAY FOR EXAMS:  Saint Ignatius is partnering with our friends from St. Patrick's Church on Bridge Avenue to raise funds to help build a Catholic school in Liberia near the hometown of our very own Mr. Isaac Dweh of the Plant Services department. For a $5 donation to this cause, you will be permitted to dress in Saint Ignatius Blue and Gold Day attire for all three days of semester exams (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday).  That means:

  • Saint Ignatius attire of any color is acceptable (t-shirts, hoodies, polos, quarter-zips, sweatpants, etc.)
  • Tennis shoes ARE also acceptable
  • Shorts are NOT permitted
  • Jeans are NOT permitted
  • If you choose not to participate in this fundraiser, normal dress code is in effect

Money will be collected in homerooms TODAY.  You will be given a wristband as proof of payment that MUST be worn each day of finals; your teachers and Mr. Franzinger will have eagle eyes on students not wearing the wristbands.  Please be sure to come to the AP's office if you have any questions about the fundraiser or issues with your wristband.  Thanks for considering this great way to de-stress for finals while helping a terrific cause.

PEER TUTORING:  Just a reminder that peer tutors are available every Monday and Thursday, before and after school, in the Library classroom. Tutors are there from 7:15-7:55am and from 3:00-3:45pm and can help students study for quizzes, organize their notes, and complete tricky homework assignments. Please check the Drop-In Tutoring Schedule for more information about subject availability and times.  There is also some limited availability for matched tutors if you would like to work with someone on a weekly basis. Email Dr. Caputo for more information if you are interested in a match.

Campus Dining: This week we will be on a light menu due to testing. The serving area will be open from 7 a.m. to noon Tuesday through Thursday.
