Back-to-School Night Information

Back-to-School Night is designed to provide parents the opportunity to attend an abbreviated Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 11.00.13 PMversion of their child’s class schedule (without their child).

This year, Back-to-School Night will take place on Monday, August 22 from 7:00-9:00 p.m., unless your student has a zero hour course. If your student has a zero hour course, your night will begin at 6:53 p.m. 

Parents will meet briefly with each teacher to learn about course content and policies for homework, testing, and grading.

Please plan to arrive early to allow for a few extra minutes to find your way to your student’s first period or zero hour classroom once you are in the building.

Dr. Luthar Student Survey Follow-up Information Session and Discussion

Below is an email that was sent last week from Greg VanSlambrook, Brebeuf Jesuit Principal

Dear Brebeuf Jesuit Families,

Last May, Brebeuf Jesuit had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Suniya Luthar, an expert in adolescent development, who supervised a survey of our students. The goal of the survey, as all parents who were part of our community last year heard in an email from me, was to better understand the concerns of children growing up in our community, and to learn how to best continue promoting positive development among our students. Dr. Luthar presented her findings at an evening session with Brebeuf parents, and it was great to see so many of you who took the time to be there and to participate. The next day, Dr. Luthar presented to our faculty, and engaged in follow-up focus groups with students.

As we begin the new school year, I would like to invite all Brebeuf Jesuit parents to attend a follow-up information session and discussion, to hear about some initiatives that have been implemented as a result of what we learned from our work with Dr. Luthar, and to have dialogue among Brebeuf Jesuit staff and parents about these issues.

Please join us in the Auditorium on Monday, August 22 from 5:45-6:45 pm, prior to the beginning of Back to School Night, which begins at 7:00 pm. I look forward to the conversation!

If you have any questions, please contact Shani Simonson in the Principal’s Office at 317.524.7080.
