CJSF prepares the student for high school and beyond. Membership also brings with it the opportunity to participate in activities which benefit the school, the community, and the student. Getting involved in extracurricular activities outside of class, e.g. band, CJSF, Leadership, Yearbook, drama or even volunteering, helps students discover what their real interests are and where they are heading.
- Students need to earn a minimum of 10 points on a trimester report card in at least 4 core academic courses (math, language arts, science, and social studies) to be eligible.
- Report cards grades: A = 3 points, B = 1 points, no points for grades C and below- A "D" or "F" in any course disqualifies a student from trimester membership
- $8.00 membership dues
A referral or suspension for ANY reason will result in your CJSF membership being revoked for the trimester during which the disciplinary action took place. However, you will be able to reapply for CJSF the following trimester. In addition to referrals or suspensions, any student who is otherwise eligible but who in the judgment of the Advisor and Principal is not eligible for ethical reasons may be disbarred from trimester membership.
