CJ Joins Catholic Library Consortium

In the spirit of Catholic Schools Week, CJ is proud to announce its partnership with the Dayton Deanery Libraries Consortium.

The Dayton Deanery Libraries Consortium consists of a coalition of six local grade schools and two area high schools. The group was formed by eight librarians from each school for the 2013-14 school year to promote collaboration and help better meet the needs of students.

Writers Get Creative at Grade Schools

Seniors at Chaminade Julienne spent the school day January 8 showing elementary students at two area Catholic schools that it is never too early to start honing their writing skills.

Ten students taking Mr. Jim Brooks’ fourth year Creative Writing class volunteered to become the teachers during field trips to St. Anthony in Dayton and St. Albert the Great in Kettering. At each school students engaged children in grades 1-3 and 7-8 in writing poetry and stories, Mr. Brooks said.

It begins!

On this first day of school, the building quickly filled with bright smiles, hugs and anticipation for the new year. Students were greeted by teachers and staff who prepared for their arrival by attending a retreat on Monday, which was directed by the ministry and service office. "Sewing Seeds of Faith" provided faculty and staff the opportunity to start the year off together in prayer and conversation that focused on the longterm impact they make on all students with each encounter.
