For the week of January 27th-Febuary1st, St. Joseph Catholic High School celebrates Catholic Schools Week, and their celebration of school spirit, Jayweek. Jayweek includes crazy costumes each day, decorated hallways, and fierce competition between the classes.

Each class attempts to win the most Jayweek points, and thus win Jayweek. each day of the week has a different theme, and each class choose a theme to decorate their hallway as.
This year's schedule is:

Monday: Thrift Shop
Tuesday: Socialite
Wednesday: Toy
Thursday: Class Theme Day
Friday: Green and Gold

The themes for each class this year are:

Freshmen: Winter Olympics
Sophomore: Medieval
Junior: Nintendo
Senior: Space

After each day, there are also little competitions designed to award Jayweek points to whichever class wins. The class who has the best hallway, and the most class participation in dressing up, also is award points.

Happy Jayweek!

Second Semester

On January 6th, SJCHS began it's Second Semester. Students and teachers returned to the campus, back from a much-needed Winter Break.

Over the break, students said they relaxed, caught up on sleep, spent time with family and friends, and, of course, binge-watched shows on Netflix.

The commencement of the second semester brings the start of different extracurricular activities. The school musical, Fiddler on the Roof, has increasingly intense rehearsals as the opening night, February 7th, fast approaching. The boys and girls basketball teams continue doing well and playing hard in the middle of their seasons.

SJCHS keeps chuggin' along!

Food Drive

St. Joe’s Raises Over 2000 Items in Food Drive

Since November 1st, SJCHS has been tirelessly raising cans, paper products, and food to donate to St. Anne’s Homeless Shelter. To add a little friendly competition to the food drive, five teachers, Mr. Wood, Mr. Fendrick, Mr. Reinhardt, Mr. Johnson, and Mr. Ulle, decided to create the Beard-a-con. To promote the food drive, the five teachers pledged themselves to a beard-growing competition. Students then brought in cans and allotted them to whoever had the best beard. Competition grew fierce, with accusations of bribery and blackmail, while the prize for winning became more desired. At the end of the semester in December, the teacher in first place is able to keep his beard. Second place must have their head shaved; third place receives a Mohawk; fourth place a shaved skunk-stripe; and fifth place must have their head shaved in the fashion of a monk’s tonsure.

The school has raised over 2000 cans, paper supplies, and fresh produce so far! Mr. Ulle is currently in the lead, but anything could happen by Friday.
In a final effort to raise food, Principal Lambert and three of the teachers, Mr. Wood, Mr. Reinhardt, and Mr. Johnson, announced a “Camp for Cans”. On the night of December 19th, the four faculty members will camp out on the school grounds overnight. For every hour they camp, students can pledge a certain amount of cans. Because much of the food goes to St. Anne’s Homeless Shelter, the Camp for Cans is also to bring attention to the difficulties faced by the homeless in extremely cold weather.

Mr. Wood, currently in second place, said “We all wanted to end the beard competition and the food drive in an exciting way, and get the students involved. I’m so excited, because it’ll be a unique, interesting event to raise awareness of homelessness.”

All members of the community are encouraged to bring cans, food, and non-perishable items to the SJCHS Girls Basketball home game on Thursday, December 19th! As a united community, we can combat hunger and provide for those less fortunate.

On Saturday, December 14th, SJCHS held its winter dance, Morp. The dance is formal, girls-choice, and black-and-white. The senior class officers did a wonderful job with decorations and turned the black box into a magical black-and-white wonderland. The dance was well attended and the students had a great time!
