AVID is coming to CJHS in the 2021 - 22 School Year

What is AVID? AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. All 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students will attend an assembly during Advisory on Friday, May 7th to learn more about the AVID program.

Students who have been recommended for next year's AVID elective will receive an invitation to interview with our AVID Site Coordinators on Monday, May 10th. For those students selected for the program, we will host a parent/guardian information meeting on Wednesday, May 12th in the CJHS Cafeteria.

Alicia Goynes and Abigail Weishuhn will serve as the CJHS AVID Site Team Coordinators for the 2021-22 school year. If you have any questions about the AVID program, please email Amy Russell, Principal, at amy.russell@cisdschools.org.

Thank you!

Practice Random Acts of Kindness!

The CJHS ABC Bully Crew is promoting Random Acts of Kindness each week until the end of the semester. This week's random act of kindness is to thank our cafeteria workers for their hard work everyday!

Help CJHS make our school and community a kinder place for everyone!

A message from Mr. Luna:

As the CJHS counselor I will provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program to address the academic, career, and personal/social needs of all students. The CJHS counseling program will align with all standards put forth in Texas Law HB 18. In unison with students, staff, parents and community members, school counselors will facilitate a positive, supportive, and culturally sensitive program to ensure the school community is a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for each individual student.
