Mock Trial Club Competes at Districts

Members of the Mock Trial Club competed against 20 high school teams from across the county in the district competition Friday, Jan. 31. Students squared off against each other in real courtrooms at the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court just north of campus in downtown Dayton.

The club’s nine members were split into two teams -- Plaintiff and Defense -- to argue both sides of a case in a simulated trial about a fictional school district and its students’ First and Fourth Amendment rights. (Watch video below to learn more.)

Tech-Savvy Students Assist at GESMV Fair

A group of Eagle volunteers took advantage of half a day of classes earlier this month, putting their tech savvy skills to good use at a community outreach event for people with disabilities.

When school was dismissed at noon for Parent-Teacher Conferences on Nov. 7, about 15 students headed to the Job Center on Edwin C. Moses Boulevard where they worked at stations during Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley's 2013 Assistive Technology Fair, co-hosted by Got-Autism. Volunteers showed guests ways of using an iPad and iPad apps during shifts from 1 to 6 p.m.

Club Advocates Pro-Life Message Quietly

Sometimes saying nothing at all can be the greatest form of advocacy.

Classrooms and hallways were noticeably quieter during the school day Tuesday, Oct. 22 as the Eagles for Life, CJ’s pro-life club, promoted a day of silence in solidarity with victims of abortion. Participating students adorned red badges, bracelets, armbands and signs, marking themselves with messages supporting women and the thousands of unborn children who are forever silenced on a daily basis.

Little Sibs Program Making Big Impact

A Chaminade Julienne service-learning course lets students become the teachers at two local elementary schools for one class period each week.

The Little Sibs Program is a year-long elective offered through Ministry & Service for juniors and seniors interested in mentoring children. CJ students, or “Bigs,” serve K-2 graders known as “Littles” at Ruskin Elementary School and Immaculate Conception School in Dayton, where they lead activities for an hour every Thursday afternoon.

Augsburg Exchange an Eagles Tradition

Thanks to a continuing partnership between CJ and the Dayton Sister City Committee, a small group of students were able to travel to Germany and stay with host families in the city of Augsburg -- a Dayton Sister City since 1964. Students were chaperoned by Tony Ricciuto, a CJ social studies teacher, his wife Brenda Ricciuto, a science teacher at Mother Brunner Catholic School, and Cordell Williams, a legislative aide for the City of Dayton.

Christmas with Hispanic Catholic Ministry

Since she took over as moderator of the Language Club years ago, veteran Chaminade Julienne Spanish and Latin teacher Linda Colas has led the group in a volunteer project every Advent season that benefits those served by the Catholic Hispanic Ministry.

The club organizes an annual Christmas bake sale and accepts donations in order to purchase clothing, grocery gift cards and presents for families in need. Students also craft handmade, holiday-themed piñatas to contribute. This year, all $430 in proceeds helped brighten the holidays for one special family.
