Today we dedicated the Malley's 21st Century Classroom at WJ! This classroom is a "classroom of tomorrow," an open space with modular furniture, giving teachers and students the opportunity to work collaboratively.
There are five wireless monitors where students can project presentations directly from the iPads. There is also a state of the art Eno Board, which is an interactive Bluetooth whiteboard! Our business classes and economic classes are currently being held in the room!
A big thanks to the Malley Family for helping this vision become a reality at WJ!
Mini Course Night – Mini Course Night will be held Thursday, September 3 from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. All parents are encouraged to attend this evening as it provides an opportunity to meet the faculty and administration, and to get acquainted with the building by following an abbreviated schedule of your student.
Mass of the Holy Spirit – On Friday, September 4, students, faculty and staff will attend this Mass which is celebrated at all Jesuit schools to mark the opening of the school year.

School Photo Day – Students will have their school pictures taken during the student’s English Class, in the Dome, on Thursday, August 27. Students are required to adhere to the dress code. Order forms will be given to students in first period mail. Whether you plan to purchase photos or not, all students must be photographed for ID purposes and for academic/athletic publicity releases. This includes seniors, even if they plan to take senior portraits from other studios.
Request from the School Nurse - Boxes of Tissues and Hand Sanitizers are needed to replenish the classrooms. Last year our parents were extremely generous in helping us stock the classrooms. If you can help this year, donations may be brought to the Dean’s office. Thank you!
Parking Reminder - If your student will be driving to school, please advise him or her to exercise extreme caution when behind the wheel. Students must park only in their assigned spots. Any student driver who violates this rule by parking in another student’s spot is subject to disciplinary action.
Any student who wishes to purchase a parking pass may still do so in the Dean’s Office. You are required to provide your license plate number, a valid driver’s license (or photocopy of your license) and cash or check for $100 made payable to Walsh Jesuit High School. Passes will not be sold to those with temporary driver’s permits. Students who park in visitor spots will be subject to disciplinary action.
