With the year coming to a close, the TJ SGA is wrapping up on our 2021 Fall Homecoming season. To recap, we raised a total of $9,585.25 through Money Wars last September! The proceeds were recently presented as a check to Miriam’s Kitchen, a D.C. nonprofit organization aimed at providing those in need with nutritious meals, a welcoming and safe community, and, most importantly, a place to call home.

We should continue to emphasize this same spirit demonstrated through Money Wars - a spirit of enjoying our time together with those we love most, coming together as one, and giving back to the community. This winter break, take a rest from all the work and stress. Spend your time off from school with the people you love most. You deserve it, TJ.
Have a happy holidays!

Since this school year began, the transition back into in-person learning has not been easy. Many of us have faced challenges throughout the last few months, from stressful workloads to lack of sleep. Now, here’s your chance to give a voice to your concerns.

Tomorrow we’re bringing back our Open Forums with Dr. Bonitatibus. Come to the Principal Conference Room (Room 119, right in front of the Art Gallery by Nobel Commons) during lunch and discuss grading any and all concerns and suggestions you may have regarding the state of the school. These can be your opinions on that one particular class, problems during lunch and passing periods, any suggestions you'd like to see implemented, or anything else at all.

Please do not hesitate to ask any of the SGA Officers (Leon, Yeefay, Vibhav, Rushil) any questions. We hope to see many of you there!
