CAT - Tree Planting @ Monroe Cemetery.  Last year, St. Ignatius students and faculty helped plant 16 trees at Monroe Street Cemetery, and this year, the Cemetery is planning to plant another 16 trees.  To that end, students,  faculty and staff are invited to participate in this year's tree planting on Saturday, May 20, 2023 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.  If you are interested in helping on 5/20/23, please complete this Google Form by this Monday 5/15/23: https://forms.gle/WPqKyScLTLnsPe5D9.  Once you express interest, you will receive an email with a special waiver form that your parents have to sign if you are under 18 years of age or you have to sign if you are 18 or over; this form is required by the Cemetery to participate. One last note: This is the Saturday before Finals Week. But, if you are going to take a study break, you might as well take a break out in nature serving the community by planting trees, right? Thanks again for considering this unique opportunity to help regrow the community around St. Ignatius.  See Mr. Savastano or Mr. McCafferty with questions.

CLEAN TEAM: The last Clean Team of the school year will be Thursday, 5/18/23, right after school. No need to sign up, just show up. Meet in the Companions Center on the first floor of Loyola Hall at 3:10 pm on Thursday.  Thursday's temperature is forecast to be in the 60's, so it will be a great day to go out!  For more information, see Mr. Savastano or Mr. McCafferty.  The Clean Team is open to students of all grade levels.
