A Global Companionship Initiative of the Jesuit Schools Network
Dear Global Companions

We are timing our newsletter today with International Literacy Day , which focuses this year on how digital technology can help close the literacy gap and gain better understanding of the skills needed in today’s societies.
This academic year promises to be one of tremendous global potential for our network of schools. The world is our home; thank you for partnering with us as we continue to seek engagement and reconciliation with it.
Ite, inflammate omnia.

Ready to promote the right to education in your classroom?
La Silla Roja campaign is underway and this year we will explore the causes and consequences of the lack of access to education.

Friends of Fe y Alegria in the United States is creating a series of classroom activities that will help our schools to more fully understand the scope and impact of education deprivation around the world.

Jesuit Refugee Service
On September 14, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands will host the 2017 Anne Frank Award ceremony and honor the Jesuit Refugee Service for their commitment to advocate for the rights of refugees.

In gratitude for this honor, JRS/USA will sponsor a Lessons From Anne essay contest in collaboration with the Embassy of the Netherlands, the Jesuit Schools Network, and America Media.

The JSN will be contacting our schools with more information about this contest, which will have a first prize of $1000 and the publication of the essay in America magazine!
Ignatian Solidarity Network
The DACA sign-on letter was tremendously well received across our network. In total, more than  1,600 educators, representing over 50 colleges, high schools, and elementary schools, signed on to the letter. Signatories included over 25 presidents of colleges and schools.

The Jesuit Schools Network promotes the educational ministry of the Society of Jesus in service to the Catholic Church by strengthening Jesuit schools for the mission of Jesus Christ.
