We try not refer to our 8th graders leaving us a "graduation" but rather "promotion." "Graduation" refers to an ending of education, but we know they will be continuing their education with a "promotion" to high school.

Want to graduate with honors?

You must be a member of CJSF all through 7th and 8th grade starting after the first trimester of 7th grade. Honor Society is your first step...CJSF is the same criterion.
