You might have heard about this already, but our boys’ varsity basketball team Won a State Championship!  The last-second dunk by Allan Jean-Rose will go down as the most exciting and impressive plays in SJPII history.  Although that dunk placed us on ESPN’s top ten, it is months of perseverance and teamwork that made the title a reality.  I have witnessed over these past months every player on the team working tirelessly with this goal in mind.  They endured hundreds of hours of practice on the court, they grew and improved from their mistakes by listening to their coaches and learning from game film.  They were selfless and worked together and were humble and grateful for every opportunity they had.  I am proud of every single one of these players and can’t wait to see what they each do in their future!

The championship game was on Tuesday night and baseball played their first game on Thursday.  Little rest for our athletes, but they started the season strong with a win!  Congratulations to our baseball team with a 14-1 win over Munroe.   In track this week, congratulations to Stanley Georges for setting a personal record and finishing 6th out of 50+ runners in the 400m! Will Boggs also set a personal record for the 400m!

Friday is the end of the quarter and the beginning of Spring Break.  I hope each of you has quality time together with your families.  For those of you with seniors, I especially hope this is a memorable break.  When we return, the last quarter will go quickly with many activities, especially for the seniors.  Grad Bash is April 5th.  Information will be going out this week about this special night.  Our musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is April 12th, 13th, and 14th.  Tickets go on sale soon.  Our Sports Banquet is April 28th, and May is filled with many activities including Prom, House Trip, Honors Night, Senior Banquet and Graduation.
