Wednesday 4/22 Update

April 22, 2020
By PJP II High School

Dear PJP Senior Parents, 

Congratulations!!!! Today was the last day of classes for your SENIOR son or daughter! 

I want to thank you for a job well done! You have made many sacrifices, and if you are like me, when my children finished high school, it was bittersweet. We are sad to see our child grow up. Where has the time gone? It happens so fast. It is sweet because we are proud of all they accomplished and looking forward to the promise of the future. 

On behalf of the faculty and staff, we share in your bittersweet memories. We have loved your children and are proud of the young men and women they have become. 

Our prayers and blessing go with all of you in the new chapters that have begun on this day. 

"It is above all in raising children that the family fulfills its mission to proclaim the Gospel of life."  St. PJP II

Our prayers are with you.  

God bless, 

Douglas Triche

Monday 4/20 Update

April 20, 2020
By PJP II High School

Dear Jaguar Family, 

 “As the family goes, so goes the nation, and so goes the whole world in which we live.” St. Pope John Paul II

While COVID-19 presents many challenges, one challenge is also an opportunity for families.  It is the opportunity to reach out and connect to one another in a deeper way.   St. PJP II often called each of us to not be afraid and put out into the deep for a catch.  The catch he had in mind was each other’s hearts.  We may often fail to do so but each time we can chose again. God’s mercy is never-ending.  

In conjunction with Archbishop Aymond, very soon we will announce plans on how and when we will conclude the end of the school year.  For now, I would like to give directions for completing and turning in PJP Service Hours.  It gives students a way to be recognized for their contributions at home and doing their part for catching hearts.  

  1. The requirement to earn half of the required service hours at a church was eliminated in March. That means that 8th graders can earn all 20 of their hours, and 9th-11th graders can earn all 30 of their hours as community hours working at home with family responsibilities that are not connected to a for-profit organization or family business. Parents can sign for hours earned this way. (Please note: students are still required to earn the full amount of service hours, but all remaining hours can be earned at home. This change was made to help parents motivate their students to contribute to household responsibilities, such as chores and babysitting younger siblings, in a concentrated way during this time of quarantine and sheltering-in-place.)
  2. The due date for service hours is still Friday, May 1, 2020. Instead of turning in the form in person, students will need to take two pictures, one of the front and one of the back, of their service hour log. They will then insert these pictures into a document and upload the document to their Theology Teacher’s Google Classroom before midnight. A special assignment will be created in Mr. Bourgeois, Mr. Chapman, and Mr. Lacourrege Google Classrooms specifically for submitting service hour logs.
  3. Normally, completion of service hour logs is a requirement in order to take the 2nd-semester theology exam. Instead, service hours will count as the only Campus Ministry (of “Mass Grade”) for the 4th quarter. That means that service hours are now worth 10% of the 4th quarter theology grade in every theology class.
  4. Final Note: Please do NOT submit service hours by coming to school or emailing them. We cannot guarantee that someone will be at PJP to receive your hours or be able to get them to Mr. Lacourrege in time. Also, our PJP email server will not be able to support all of the picture files emailed all at the same time. Please submit your document with your service hour log pictures on Google Classroom only. If you have already turned in your log to Mr. Lacourrege, you do not need to submit it again. If you turned in your service hours to someone else, please email Mr. Lacourrege to make certain that he has received them.

Thank you for your cooperation and support. Let’s complete the year Jaguar Strong!

God bless, 

Douglas Triche

Thursday 4/9 Update

April 09, 2020
By PJP II High School

Dear PJPII Community,

Family is always important when facing tough times. Students, parents, and teachers always tell me that what sets our school community apart from others is that we are a family. Families take care of each other. We have a rich, faith-filled history of helping other family members in need - it’s just who we are. 

In 40 years of history, we have never experienced a situation like the COVID-19 Pandemic. It’s a challenge. We are doing the hard work: social-distancing, on-line classes, staying home, and sheltering-in-place. The most difficult challenge for some of our families may be what lies ahead. 

It’s always about our students, as far as the Administration, Faculty, and Staff of PJPII is concerned. Our Mission is to provide a Christ-centered educational environment in the Roman Catholic tradition that promotes academic excellence, nurtures faith development, and fosters leadership among its students. We want to ensure EVERY PJPII STUDENT can return to Pope John Paul II High School next year. We are asking our PJPII Family for help.

Our family needs your time, talent, or treasure to increase the Tuition Assistance Fund for the 2020-2021 school year. You can help keep our PJPII Family strong and enduring in our Vision for the future!

How can you help?

Pray for the PJP Family in this time of need (email Sherri Dutreix sdutreix@pjp.org to be part of the Prayer Team)

We know these are uncertain times. We also know God is in control. Strengthen your faith, strengthen your family, and strengthen the PJPII Family. We are not alone. We are stronger together!

Yours in Christ,

Douglas V. Triche

PJP President/Principal
