Scholarship for Service
CJSF membership is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements and submit their application to one of the CJSF advisers before the deadline. To be eligible, a student must:
1) Complete an application form.
2) Have at least 10 points as determined by their most recent Aptos Junior High School report card.
Optional: If you wish to come on our fun field trips, you must complete a minimum of two hours of community service, then get a formal letter (on letterhead) from a nonprofit organization verifying what you did, where, and when. See below for more details.
CJSF Application Deadline
It’s time to apply for CJSF. Using your grades from 1st quarter, you need 10 points when A’s are worth 3 points and B’s are worth 1. If you earned a B in an accelerated class, that would be worth 2 points. Remember that PE doesn’t count in the totals. If you have ten points, find the application on our website, print it and fill it out. Complete your community service requirement and attach your letter. Then attach your report card and turn it in to Mr. Simms in room 16, Ms. E-L in room 21, or Mr. Smiley in room 22. You have until Friday, January 30th. If you have questions, see Mr. Simms, Ms. E-L, or Mr. Smiley.
To come on our fun field trips, you need to complete two hours of community service with a non-profit organization. Once you have completed the service, obtain a letter that verifies your service. Your letter should include:
o A description of the duties/services you performed.
o The number of hours you volunteered.
o The date you performed the service.
o The letters should be on letter-head stationary.
o Signed by the adult supervising you.
(The adult signing the letter may not be a parent or relative.)
