Baccalaureate Mass was celebrated Thursday, May 29 at Emmanuel Church in Dayton. Graduating first in her class is Claire Meyers (St. Christopher, Washington and Lee University) followed by Salutatorian Thomas Weckesser (St. Albert the Great, University of Dayton).
In late April, a package postmarked from Spain came to art teacher Mrs. Diana Barr’s desk. Inside were large puzzle pieces, each uniquely decorated by middle school students depicting their culture’s interpretation of peace.
Three Chaminade Julienne teachers were invited to share their unique classroom concepts for integrating social justice and research into the curriculum at two national education conventions this spring.
This weekend, visual arts and English students take part in two state competitions Saturday, March 8. Good luck and go Eagles!

In the spirit of Catholic Schools Week, CJ is proud to announce its partnership with the Dayton Deanery Libraries Consortium.
The Dayton Deanery Libraries Consortium consists of a coalition of six local grade schools and two area high schools. The group was formed by eight librarians from each school for the 2013-14 school year to promote collaboration and help better meet the needs of students.
Seniors at Chaminade Julienne spent the school day January 8 showing elementary students at two area Catholic schools that it is never too early to start honing their writing skills.
Ten students taking Mr. Jim Brooks’ fourth year Creative Writing class volunteered to become the teachers during field trips to St. Anthony in Dayton and St. Albert the Great in Kettering. At each school students engaged children in grades 1-3 and 7-8 in writing poetry and stories, Mr. Brooks said.
You have options” is a phrase that is resonating with prospective parents more than ever. Since 2009, the admissions office has used this idea to encourage parents to explore the kinds of excellent services and academic opportunities that CJ offers families in meeting development and educational goals for their child.
Guest speaker Tim Hrastar could have very well come straight from the pages of the novel that students in Mrs. Beth Marshall’s English classes were studying.
In fact, he served in the same military unit as the story’s main character.
