Blue Jays Flock to Carrollton and Banks for 2020 Registration Day
For the first time since they dispersed from campus in early March, Jesuit students assembled for a socially-distanced Registration Day. Preparing for the start of classes on Thursday, August 13, students from pre-freshmen to seniors marched through the many steps necessary to prepare for the upcoming school year. Donning masks and helping students to remain six feet apart every step of the way, faculty and staff members ensured that the day ran smoothly.
Blue Jays filled out forms, dropped off paperwork, picked up name tags, met their big and little brothers, and purchased P.E. uniforms. Notably absent from this year’s registration day—formerly “Book Day“—was the purchasing of novels and textbooks, which now takes place online.
Seniors were gifted their senior shirts by volunteers from the Class of 2016: Paul Gelpi, Connor Maheu, John Kemmerly, and Mark Beebe. Many seniors also served as big brothers who guided the pre-freshmen entrusted to their care through the many stations set up throughout the first two floors of the school.
Registration Day marks the unofficial beginning of the school year, and the week will continue with Investiture for new students taking place in a special split format on August 12 and classes for all students beginning on August 13 and 14. Students and families should regularly check the Jesuit calendar to ensure that they have the latest information.
