Cold Enough Yet?
The cold weather was a topic of conversation for these Blue Jays in the Traditions Courtyard Monday after school. Pre-freshman Thomas Sagona, juniors Daniel Sagona and Westley West, freshmen Noah Griffin and Jared Tonglet, and pre-freshman Alec Maraldo are dressed for the weather. As below freezing temperatures blanket the metro area beginning Monday night, Blue Jays and their families are encouraged to protect their plants, pets, and pipes. And with the cold expected to last until Wednesday, Blue Jays should also review the cold weather dress code policy, located on pages 49-50 of The Bulletin.

Balloons Ablaze …
Sophomore Alexander Vargas watches his experiment go up in flames in Chemistry I taught by Mr. David Storm. After completing a unit on chemical reactions, students used magnesium and hydrochloric acid to produce hydrogen gas which was collected in a balloon. Using a flame at the end of a long stick, students finished their experiment by holding a flame to the balloon and hoping for the flash of an exothermic reaction.

Members of the Odd Instruments Orchestra entertain Blue Jays in the Traditions Courtyard by performing in a Brown Bag Concert. The group played a mix of contemporary hits and holiday tunes… each with unconventional instruments. Brown Bag Concerts at Jesuit began in the early 1980s, when as a sophomore, Harry Connick, Jr. ’85 approached then-student activities director (current alumni director) Mat Grau ’68 with the idea. Over the years, travelling bands and groups, alumni, and current Blue Jays have all performed during the lunchtime concerts.
