Programs

Reflections Art Program

The National PTA Reflections program is PTA’s cornerstone arts program. It was developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork.

Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

Ways & Means

Ways and Means funding focuses on supporting the curricular and co-curricular needs of teachers and staff to reach a broad student population.

Already this year for the 2018-2019 school year, with your donations to CJHS PTA, we have allocated funds to purchase heart rate monitors for PE classes. These heart rate monitors will reach the broad student population and help with accurate, real-time information for students to understand and apply to their activity level in physical education class. The other purchase through Ways and Means for this school year is a backdrop for the Drama Club. This year the Drama Club will be presenting a play that the entire student population will be viewing (as well as community members for outside performances). This year's play is directly applicable to the current year's curriculum.

We are pleased that we are able to enhance our students education experience through these requests and your generous donations!

Any teacher or staff member who is a current CJHS PTA member can make a request.

Questions regarding the Ways & Means process can be directed to Robin Maloney at robin.maloney40@gmail.com


Fundraising

Donation Drive

No cookie dough or coupon books to sell!

The CJHS PTA is asking for a one-time monetary donation to help us meet our financial goal of $14,000. Your financial support allows the PTA to offer programs that enhance the educational growth of each student this school year. Please see below for additional ways to contribute to CJHS PTA!

Your tax deductible donation will touch every student at CJHS. The suggested donation amount per student is $50. Your donation will provide all 8th grade Language Arts students with a field trip to the Holocaust Museum as well as a 9th grade end of year Send Off Celebration. With your donation, we hope to again provide many educational “extras” that will benefit all the students at CJHS. For example, last year the PTA purchased a new stage backdrop for the Drama Club, German Club field trip, maple syrup distiller, books, magazine subscriptions, and much more! Check out the Ways & Means tab for this year's recipients of your donations! This will be updated throughout the year.

We’re grateful for your contribution and we’re thankful for any amount that your family can donate! Please make checks payable to CJHS PTA & send in to the CJHS main office.
