As a new feature this year, the website will have picture galleries posted for athletic events in junior high and high school. Other events may be added throughout the year.
Navigation to the pictures is achieved by clicking on Athletics and navigating to the desired sport. Once there, scroll down to the schedule and click on the hyperlinks for each game or meet. More galleries will be added as time goes by, so you can check back on different sports, such as Cross Country and Cheerleaders for pictures.
These photos are mainly from pictures taken by the yearbook staffs and sponsors and some taken by me for the website. Copies of the original pictures are available upon request. Contact information is in the caption of each picture. If you order a yearbook, you can get full size, non-watermarked copies of the pictures without charge. Otherwise, a small fee of 25 cents per picture will apply.
The high school and junior high annual staffs and sponsors work hard to produce the yearbooks every year. As many people know, it is always fun to occasionally look at old yearbooks and remember people and stories. The older we get, the more important our yearbooks become.
One of the major duties of the annual staffs is to take pictures and they have graciously allowed me to use some of those photos in the web galleries. Support the work these staffs do by ordering your yearbook this year.
For the third year, Superintendent Mike Norrell recognizes the Servant Leaders at CISD. Each month, one student from each grade level is chosen by the teachers and principals as an outstanding example of student leaders. These are students who serve and help others, show respect, are courteous, and have a positive influence in the classroom and the school. The program is designed to recognize those students who show these qualities and to encourage other students to exhibit them also. As servant leaders, CISD students can have an impact on the school, the community and the nation.

The definition of chaos is “complete disorder and confusion.” The definition of structure is “construct or arrange according a plan.”
During the first “Structure Kickoff” assembly, CJH students started their afternoon in the cafeteria with a pile of straws and paper. For the first few minutes they were not given any expectation or instructions on what to do with it. They were then told to build the tallest structure possible with the given materials. During the exercise, students stopped and talked about the word structure and how it relates to life and education.
“Some built their structure with a weak base and started the structure from the highest point of the building the ceiling, while other teams focused on a good foundation and created height from that point on,” explained school counselor Jenae Ashbrook. “When the activity was complete, we talked about what elements defined a structure and which structure met all those requirements to win, some of the elements listed were: good strong foundation, teamwork, motivation, routine, plan, and grounded.”
This exercise was a concrete illustration of the junior high’s theme or one word for the year.
“Structure is how all pieces fit together to support the whole,” principal John Taylor stated. “At CJH everyone is important and has a role to play in the success of the campus. Also, focusing on structure and providing a more structured environment creates a situation where junior high students can find more success individually. Therefore, an emphasis on structure not only recognizes that everyone has a responsibility for the achievements of the school, but also helps the individual student succeed.”
After the main event in the cafeteria, the students went outside for other structured games in order to relax and have fun.
While plans are in the works for a similar event in the spring, students will remember that structure not only counters chaos in their lives, but also helps them become successful.
