Student E-cycling Event at CJ April 5

Members of the CJ STEMM Special Ops Club and a Senior Capstone group teamed up with Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley (GESMV) to offer the community an environmentally friendly option for getting started on spring cleaning.

On April 5, students and volunteers staffed a GESMV donation truck at CJ from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. accepting working and non-working cell phones, computers, monitors, printers, speakers and other devices. By afternoon, nearly 14,000 pounds of unwanted electronics was collected for safe disposal.

Lenten Mission Drive Supports CJ's Orders

The annual Lenten Mission Drive is underway. This donation drive, organized by the office of ministry and service, benefits missions in Africa supported by our school's two founding orders, the Marianists and Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

Collections this year will be split equally and donated to both Our Lady of the Nazareth Elementary School, a Marianist mission in Kenya, and the Sisters of Notre Dame Clean Water Project. Students learned more about each of these missions in their religion classes.

Capstone Serves Marginalized Population

As part of their Senior Capstone project, two groups are closely collaborating with the special needs community to provide leadership opportunities, build relationships and raise awareness for this often overlooked population.

Students began their project by researching the issues and barriers to inclusion facing those they intended to serve. Both groups decided to partner with the school's Cuvilly special education program and Toward Independence, Inc., a local non-profit agency that serves people with developmental disabilities.

Ministry & Service Broadens Horizons

Opportunities offered through the office of ministry and service have been taking students places this semester to learn about vocations and live out their faith in solidarity with the less fortunate.

FLIGHT Service Project

Fifteen seniors from CJ’s non-credit service leadership class FLIGHT (Faith Leaders in God’s Hands Today) spent a day serving others at the House of Bread. The non-profit community kitchen located on Orth Avenue is open for lunch seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Seniors Work to Stop Cyberbullying

One Senior Capstone group has made it their mission to address cyberbullying, a dangerous online phenomena that often goes unseen outside of school classrooms and hallways.

On March 6, Bridget Wolff, Susie Sipos and Mimi Uwase will visit Holy Angels School to inform 7th and 8th grade students about what cyberbullying is, who is affected by it, and how to stop it. The group chose this topic because of its recent frequency in the news, and this age group because they knew this was the age that many kids start going online and interacting with others, Wolff said.

CJ Students Influencing Our World Today

A new program at Chaminade Julienne challenges seniors to apply all the lessons of their four-year Catholic educational experience by actualizing the traditions of the school’s two founding orders, the Marianists and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. The Senior Capstone Project is a cross-curricular, inquiry-based research project that calls seniors to become servant leaders in our world today.
