CJHS SCHOOL PICTURE DAY -- September 23
School picture day at CJHS is Monday, September 8.

Photographers will be ready by 7:45 a.m. to take pictures of staff members who do not have homeroom classes.

All students and faculty/staff members will have pictures made for the yearbook on this day -- free of charge.  If students or parents would like to purchase these pictures, please order online before picture day or complete an order envelope.  Place your money in the envelope and seal it. The student must return the envelope directly to the photographer before his/her picture is taken on the morning of picture day.

On picture day, we will not go to first period, but everyone should report directly to second period when the first bell sounds.  We will have an extended second period while seventh grade students and teachers smile for the camera and an extended third period while eighth grade students and teachers smile for the camera.  The support room will be closed.

As classes are called, teachers should escort and supervise students and be first in line to have a picture made.  Students' pictures will be grouped behind their teacher's picture and will be returned in this order.  Every student should be prepared to give the photographer his name and/or completed order form, having the form accessible before his picture.

We will return to regular bell schedule when all pictures are completed, before first lunch/fifth period.

Pictures will not be made for students who are not in dress code.
CJHS FACULTY/STAFF FUNDS -- INFORMATION
SUNSHINE FUND:
This is the money we use to remember each other with cards or flowers when hospitalized or if we have a death in the family.  All staff will want to contribute $10 per semester.  You may give your contribution to Sunshine Chairman Ms. Jeannine Milam or Ms. Susan Rucker in the main office.

PAPER PLATES KITTY:
This is a separate account.  As the name suggests, we purchase large and small paper plates, napkins, plastic eating utensils, cups, dish detergent, paper towels, etc., for monthly birthday cakes and our occasional theme lunches.  All staff will want to contribute toward this fund, monetarily or with products.

Also, throughout the year, you may choose to "pay" for your meal through this fund rather than to bring a covered dish to spread at campus covered dish luncheons.

COFFEE CLUB:
Of course, this club is set up for coffee drinkers.  It costs $10 per month, and coffee is provided in the main office and in the LRC.  There should be no other coffee machines on campus.  If you wish to pay per cup, it costs 50 cents for a paper cupful or $1 per your own coffee mug, no thermos please! 

DRINKING WATER:
Drinking water is provided from fountain in the main office, free of charge.

 
SUB CALLING SYSTEM: 903/694-7540
CJHS Faculty/Staff: Your 5-digit CISD ID number is required to log-in to the Substitute Teacher Automated CallPlus System. If you have a shorter number, add a zero in front. Do not hang up until the program states, "Your absence has been recorded.” When the prompt asks you for special instructions, this is your opportunity to give details about specific duties, times, classroom instructions, assigned parking, etc. Please call as soon as possible anytime or before 6:00 a.m. on the day of your absence.  In case of a changed plan, teachers (and substitutes) are able to call into the system to edit your own calendars.  A current sub list is always available in CJHS main office for you to take with you if you choose to procure your own sub rather than calling the system.
CJHS FACULTY/STAFF BLUE JEAN POLICY
Beginning at the start of the school year through the end of our CJHS football season, faculty/staff may wear blue jeans WITH official campus faculty shirts on Thursdays.  After CJHS football season, faculty/staff may wear blue jeans WITH official campus faculty shirts on Fridays.  Spirit tee-shirts are NOT official campus faculty shirts!

As a campus fundraiser, faculty/staff may wear blue jeans one other day of the week for only $2.  Buy your blue jean fundraiser ticket from Mrs. Rucker in the main office.
CJHS FACULTY/STAFF WINDSUIT WEDNESDAYS
On Wednesdays, CJHS faculty and staff are permitted to wear windsuits.  These suits may be any color or design, but must be in good condition with matching pants and jacket.
