Opening Jesuit to others

Kendrick Lai, Contributor

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! It is that anticipated time of year again when the leaves are falling, the trees around campus are changing colors, football season is well underway, and Jesuit High School is holding its annual Open House. Marauders new and old will be united and entertained at the event on Oct. 19 from 12 pm to 3 pm.

Father David Suwalsky, President of Jesuit High School, will be speaking about some of the great opportunities and experiences that Jesuit has to offer. The speech will be delivered at 12 p.m, 1 p.m, and 2 p.m. Furthermore, many teachers have prepared special activities and exhibits to highlight some of the great learning and student achievement happening on Jesuit High School’s campus. Moreover, many of the facilities and buildings around campus have been updated, so be sure to tour the campus while you are here!

Ms. Jessica Scheimer, a Physics teacher at Jesuit, will be demonstrating improvements in Jesuit’s science facilities over the last year and will attest to the quality of Jesuit’s Science Department, in particular, the physics program.

“The Physics program is well-founded in physics education research and focuses on not only teaching the curriculum, but also critical thinking skills that colleges and business have deemed most important that graduates have” Ms. Scheimer said.

Additionally, she feels that Jesuit offers the best science program in the area and that its facilities are university quality. Ms. Scheimer wants to share this message because she strongly believes in the quality of her department, and a lot of work has been done to make this quality possible. She has recruited student volunteers and gathered the most intriguing demonstrations and projects that are used in class so that they can be shown to the public.

“Open House is a great way to share the spirit and values of Jesuit High School with our community” said Mr. David Bischoff, ‘79, Director of Visual and Performing Arts.

Mr. Bischoff believes that students are the best way to showcase Jesuit’s Visual and Performing Arts. Studio Art students will be painting in the Harris Center, drama students will be rehearsing in the Black Box Theater, musical and choral ensembles will be performing around campus, and film students will be editing post-productions in CH104.

“A great reason to attend Jesuit is to participate in our extensive programs in the arts. These activities are fun, build lifelong friendships, and allow God’s creative gifts to grow and be shared with all” said Mr. Bischoff.

Remember to save the date of Sunday, Oct. 19 and support the Marauders! All are welcome to come to stop by Jesuit High School’s Open House and explore the many opportunities that Jesuit has to offer.
