The Jr. Bill (Nye)’s are back at it again! On Monday night, the best and brightest of the St. Louis U. High’s science community convened to put on this fall’s STEM Night, showcasing the achievements and endeavors of several Jr. Billikens. Ranging from one student’s cancer research to the activist funding of another, the event provided a fuller view of the Science Department’s objectives.
This past weekend, 11 ambitious Jr. Bills embarked on the St. Louis U. High Outdoor Adventure Club’s (OAC) annual Fall trip.
The students of St. Louis U. High are all too familiar with the importance of revisions, examining and reviewing to point out flaws and make changes, whether it be examining their own life in the daily examen, revising English essays, or reviewing class notes. However, what students may not realize is that the school that teaches these skills is undergoing its own review process in what has been deemed the Strategic Summit.
Taking place from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 each year, National Hispanic Heritage Month has long been a time to celebrate Hispanic and Latino culture. In years past, St. Louis U. High has acknowledged Hispanic Heritage Month with a week of morning prayers for the Hispanic community. Although many Hispanic and Latino students hoped to see more celebration this year, SLUH was unable to do any more than the week of morning prayers and a bulletin board.
SLUHsers Comic Strip
The SLUH Esports team took on Nixa high school on Tuesday night in a Rocket League battle for the ages.
After many battles, the St. Louis U High swim team had an uninterrupted week to hammer away at their raw skills and forge themselves into new weapons as sharp as shark’s teeth. Last week, the swim team had the rare opportunity of having a week with no meets, but that certainly did not make it a rest period.
The SLUH cross country team was able to show off its incredible depth for the second week in a row by sweeping all but one division at the Parkway West Dale Shepard Invitational this past Saturday and taking home an abundance of medals. While the varsity squad had some mishaps, the rest of the team was able to clearly separate themselves from the rest of the field.
Chaminade has tormented SLUH soccer for years. Last year, it was the Red Devils who knocked the Jr. Bills out of the District Tournament with a 1-0 win. That same season, Chaminade took the regular season match against SLUH by the same score. Two years ago, it was a 5-1 loss. In fact, it’s been years since SLUH has topped Chaminade in soccer. This year, even the star-studded roster of the Jr. Bills fell victim to the Chaminade curse in a close 1-0 loss. Now, with a single loss eating away at their record, the Jr. Bills (11-1-1) are trying to stay positive with their sights set on late October.
Coming off last week’s tough loss against CBC, the Jr. Bills rebounded significantly against the Lift for Life Academy Hawks while also celebrating the contributions of the many seniors on the football team. SLUH controlled the flow of the game in a dominant fashion, winning 48-20 on their final home game of the season.
The SLUH faculty is one of the most driven and knowledgeable bodies of educators in the state, but just like the student body they teach, they must complete a lengthy educational process during their own journey at the school. The program by which this orientation happens is known as the New Ignatian Educators (NIE).
After Week 4 of the NFL Season it’s time to look towards next and get you ready for your Week 5 matchup.
With the first quarter of the 2021-22 school year coming to a close, the administration of St. Louis U. High has been hard at work deciding on its Covid plans for the second quarter, which are set to be announced in the Oct. 17 ParentConnect email.
Class fun days will make an appearance in the SLUH schedule for the second year in a row as an integral part of the class unity process. The class fun days emerged in the 2020-2021 school year, when bonding and forming class identity experiences became challenging due to Covid restrictions.
Everyone knows Campus Ministry as the room in the center of the school with the comfy couches and the place to take a nap, but not everybody realizes the extent to which Campus Ministry serves the school.
