Regular Order, Day 3

  • Teachers, please have a student empty the recycling bins located in the classrooms.
  • It’s Rivalry Week and that means Friday will see the 99th meeting of Jesuit and Holy Cross on the gridiron.  Get ready for the event by purchasing your Game Day T-shirt in the Student Commons before school and at lunch each day this week. Regular sizes are $10 and larger sizes are $15.  Friday will be a rivalry shirt day.  Wear your rivalry t-shirt on Friday in place of your school shirt.
  • The varsity football team will face Holy Cross in the 99th meeting of the Great American Rivalry Series game on Friday night at Tad Gormley with kickoff set for 7:15 p.m.  Pre-sale tickets will be available for purchase at the switchboard today through Friday from 7:30-3:30 and in the student commons during lunch on Friday.  Pre-sale tickets are $6.00 each for adults and students (Non-Jesuit) and $3.00 each for children (ages 6-11).  Purchase your tickets early to avoid the lengthy lines at the gate.  All tickets purchased at the gate are $8.00 each.  Note that both student ID’s and season passes will be accepted at the gate.
  • Today during the lunch period representatives of the Great American Rivalry will be in the courtyard to conduct the chin-up challenge as part of the Rivalry events. They will be at Holy Cross on Friday doing the same thing. The school with the most chin-ups is announced during the game. The Jays won last year.  Bring home the prize again this year by stopping by the courtyard tomorrow and get some reps in.
