Students are the reason that Jesuit Academy exists! We think it's important that you meet them and learn about the things Jesuit students are accomplishing in the classroom and in their communities. Look forward to a student feature each month.
This month, we introduce you to 5th grader Shanden. Shanden is in his first year at Jesuit Academy. He enjoys being at Jesuit because the school day is longer and he is receiving a good education.
Shanden is involved in a freestyle dance program hosted in the North Omaha community. He started in the fall and participated for a few months prior to basketball season starting. When the season ends in March, Shanden will return to the dance program.
His favorite thing about dance is the feeling he gets when he figures out a difficult combination. He participates in class on Saturday afternoons and is looking forward to an upcoming competition he will participate in.
Keep dancing, Shanden!
