Upcoming Service Opportunities

Friday, April 28
Do you know how to use a sewing machine?  Do you want to learn how to make beautiful pillow cases? Do you need community service hours? If so, come join us this Friday from 3:30 to 5:30 in room 40 and be a part of the Million Pillowcase Challenge. Kits are provided and the pillowcases you make will be donated to military personnel, children’s hospitals, nursing homes, and other charities.  If you want to make a pillowcase to keep, two yards of coordinating fabric will make two pillowcases, donate one and keep one. Pick up more information and permission slip from Ms. McKay in room 35, Ms. Brady in room 40 or in the front office. Hope to see you there!!

California Junior Scholarship Federation

What is CJSF?  
The California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF) emphasizes high standards of scholarship and community service for California junior high school students.  Founded in 1967, the California Junior Scholarship Federation is part of CSF, the oldest scholarship institution in the state of California.
How do I apply?
Fall enrollment is open to all 8th grade students in early September.  
Spring enrollment is open to all 7th & 8th grade students in late January.  
Please check the daily announcements for important deadlines. CJSF Membership is based on scholarship and is gained after qualifying grades are earned each semester.  
In order to become a member, the student must submit an application each semester the student is eligible.   A point system specified in the CJSF State By-Laws establishes the membership requirements.   During the open application process, obtain an application from the CJSF Advisor or school website and fill it out based on your last semester grades.
What are the benefits of CJSF membership? 
CJSF prepares the student for CSF membership.  Membership also brings with it the opportunity to participate in activities which benefit the school, the community, and the student.
