Club Makes Rosaries For A Cause

"We're into the little stuff. We don't hold events, we don't demonstrate on the street. We just make rosaries."

Helen Sparrow '19 wants to make an impact beyond the Dayton area. That's why she organized one of CJ's newest clubs, The Glory Beads.

"The Glory Beads are a group of students interested in honoring our Blessed Mother in a unique way: by making rosaries," said Sparrow.

Get Involved In CJ Clubs

Students looking for new opportunities at CJ can get easily involved by taking part in one or more of the 21 current clubs at school. The organizations range from a focus on academics, to leadership, to select interests.

"Having clubs gives all students the opportunity to be involved in something," said Greg Mueller, administrator. "Students can be in sports, performing arts, or clubs, and many choose to be involved in multiple activities."

Mock Trial Summer Seminar Held

For the second year in a row, students spent  three days learning more about legal system and saw actual court proceedings take place, during a Mock Trial Summer Seminar.

"I had participated the previous year, and found that the knowledge I gleaned from the experience helped me in the actual competition," said Jacob Troutwine '17.

"Amazing Experience" for Young Leaders

"Leaders don't have to get ready, they stay ready.”

That theme was at the heart of a Leadership Development Camp recently held by the American Red Cross. Brianna Gavin ’17 attended this camp and called it an amazing experience.

“Being a leader doesn't mean that you have to have a title,” said Gavin. “To be a leader, all you have to do is take your goals, take your peoples wishes, compromise, and come to quick solutions for the better of most and/or all involved parties.”

Cheerleading Coaches Using New Format

Two familiar faces were recently chosen to coach and lead the CJ cheerleaders this upcoming school year.

Jessica Smith ’08 and Danielle Byrd said they were both excited about the opportunity to give back to the CJ community through the cheerleading program.  Smith cheered during the football and basketball seasons all four years she attended CJ and Byrd is the parent of a CJ student.

“I am most excited to give back to my high school,” Smith said about being back at CJ.
