JS2S is a student-led and facility-advised program with a mission to ensure that all students feel welcomed at their school and community. The program is backed by an organization called MCEC or Military Child Education Coalition. Our ambassadors provide fun ways for new and old students to get to know other students and encourage them to do well academically.
Our ambassadors understand that our character is much more than just what we try to display others to see here at CCJHS; it is who we are even when no one is watching.

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.
Yearbook and Yearbook Sales will be posted soon.
