Senior Class Trip to D.C.
On Monday, Feb. 27, the senior class and teacher chaperones travelled to Washington D.C. First, they visited Arlington National Cemetery. Seniors Olivia Barnhart, Olivia Lang, Andrew Moss, and Seth Anderson participated in the Laying of the Wreath Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Many students, including senior Olivia Barnhart enjoyed the ceremony. “It was really cool to experience, but the soldiers were very intimidating,” Barnhart said. The seniors also visited the Holocaust Museum. They then travelled to Union Station for lunch. They arrived back to JC around 6:15 p.m.

Fall and winter athletes were celebrated this past Tuesday, Feb. 29. This annual ceremony took place in the upper gym from 6p.m. to 10p.m. Dinner was served and then each fall and winter sport was announced and a summary of their season was given. Student athletes who played a varsity sport then received a varsity letter and/or a pin for their sport. Then, individual awards were announced. Students achieving all-county, all-state, and other division awards were recognized.
Next, the Patriot Awards were announced. One athlete was chosen from each varsity sport to win this award. The award was given to the student who best embodies a Patriot athlete. The night ended with a reveal of the new Patriot Sports app which is available on the App Store.
