It's Men for Others lunch day! These young men were selected as the Men for Others winners during the fourth quarter of last school year and the first quarter of this school year - one young man won in both! Students enjoyed a delicious lunch at Mama's Pizza Omaha. We are very proud of the work these students are doing every day at Jesuit Academy. Congratulations!
One young man in each grade is recognized each quarter as the Men for Others recipient. The recipient portrays a strong commitment to the Graduate at Graduation principles of being Loving, Open to Growth, Religious, Intellectually Competent, and Committed to doing Justice.
For this year's Family Fun Night, Jesuit Academy went bowling at West Lanes. Over 100 people joined in on the fun. We can't wait until next year!

Saturday's rain didn't stop Creighton Students Union from raising $8,180 for Jesuit Academy through the 15th Annual Jaywalk 5k Fun Run! Many thanks to all who participated in the event, which included a pancake feed following the run/walk.
Thank you to our friends from the Creighton Preparatory School football team who joined in the festivities!
On Monday, Jesuit Academy 6th - 8th graders traveled to Tecumseh to view the total solar eclipse. In collaboration with other Catholic schools in the Omaha area, they participated in activities at various stations to learn more about the eclipse.
The day was pretty spectacular - we hope you were able to enjoy this unique experience!
Jesuit Academy students celebrated the start of the new school year with Mass of the Holy Spirit. Mass of the Holy is celebrated around the world by Jesuit schools and is a tradition that began in 1548.
Area and perimeter are two math topics that are no match for our Jesuit Academy fourth graders - Mr. Murray is very creative in finding ways for his students to be engaged in their school work. Great job Mr. Murray!

We are very proud of their accomplishments!
As part of PE, the 5th grade class spent the last four weeks participating in ice skating lessons at Grover Ice. On each Wednesday in April, the class traveled to the ice rink for a Learn to Skate program. By the end of the four weeks, every student was up on skates and comfortable skating independently. To celebrate the end of the lessons, students also had the opportunity to play broom ball.
We are grateful to our friends at Grover Ice for their wonderful work with the young men of Jesuit Academy!
