CJHS CHEERLEADER TRYOUTS
Seventh grade students interested in trying out for eighth grade cheerleaders for next year need to sign-up in front of the main office through Wednesday, March 4.  Candidates need to also pick up the information packet at the sign-up table.  The last page of the packet needs to be completed on both sides and returned to Mrs. Rucker in the main office NO LATER THAN 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4.  Tryouts will be held Wednesday-Friday, March 11-13, with mandatory clinic on Wednesday and Thursday and tryouts on Friday.
SPRING PICTURES MARCH 12
Spring pictures will be made of all CJHS students on Thursday, March 12.  We will go directly to second period on that day so that seventh graders can begin by 8:00 a.m., and we will hold the bell until all seventh graders have finished picture-taking.  We will then go to an extended third period so that all eighth graders can take spring pictures.  Complete packets will be returned to students who must pay for that package or return that package within a two-week period.  Payment may also be made online.

AESOP: AUTOMATED SUBSTITUTE PLACEMENT & ABSENCE MANAGEMENT
You can interact with AESOP by phone at 1-800-942-3767 or computer on the internet at http://www.frontlinek12.com/aesop or by clicking on the first button underneath the "Faculty" tab on the CJHS homepage.  Your log-in ID is your phone number (the first phone number listed in TxEIS) and your PIN is your 4-digit employee ID number.

You may report an absence as early as you wish, but only as late as 7:30 a.m. on the day of your absence. Every professional and paraprofessional will use this system to report your absences, even if you do not require a substitute. 

You will have opportunity to request a preferred substitute, and you can be in touch with that person if you wish, but your personal contact is not the official request.  The official assignment is made by the AESOP program; therefore, this is a step which cannot be skipped.
CJHS FACULTY/STAFF FUNDS -- INFORMATION
SUNSHINE SHOULDER:
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 PARTICIPATION:
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.

 
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.
