CCJHS Clubs and Organizations

 


 

Boys & Girls Club

 

Highlights:

  • Powerhour- Powerhour is basically a one hour tutoring session to where students can receive additional help with homework assignments, projects, and study habits. The cool part is that we have a raffle for the new iPod touch...to where club members receive (1) entry for every A (90+) on homework assignments, exams, quizzes, & report cards. So it would behoove students to strive for higher grades.
  • Basketball League- We will compete against the middle schools in Killeen for the BGC Basketball Championship.
    BGC Spelling Bee, Step Team, Dance Team, & Torch Club
  • Skype Mentor Calls- We will be calling a few celebrities and career related people as part of our mentor program.
  • Nintendo Wii...XBOX Kinect...PS3

An after school program will be held EVERY DAY 3:45pm-6:30pm in the cafeteria.

CCJHS now has a Torch Club:

A Torch Club is a small group of Club members, ages 11 to 13, who engage in programs and activities agreed upon, developed and implemented by the members themselves. The first Torch Clubs were chartered in 1970 to address the developmental needs of young people. Groups typically involve between six and 15 young people, and have as a primary focus the development of character and leadership skills of group members.

Permission forms are available on the Boys and Girls Website.  Click on "Copperas Cove Jr High School" at the bottom right of the page.

Yearbook

 

Students are responsible for the creation of the entire yearbook: everything from the design of the page to taking the pictures and writing the stories and captions. In this "info age," the skills and experience managing information are vital and powerful. Being a yearbook staff member offers students the opportunity to gain life skills, assume responsibilities, and have great fun at the same time. Students will gain knowledge in desktop publishing, journalistic writing, digital photography, and advertising. That combination makes the yearbook one of the most promising places in education for shaping skills and launching future careers. Good communication and organizational skills are a must. Yearbook is an 8th grade elective. Finalizing the book may require a few after school meetings.

 

Meets: Yearbook meets 6th period in room 414 during Enrichment.
