California Junior Scholarship Federation

Iron Horse Middle School students are encouraged to join CJSF, California Junior Scholarship Federation.  This club is a state-wide organization which promotes high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship at the junior high level (grades 7 & 8).  CJSF emphasizes service to the school and community while creating pride in scholastic achievement.  Its motto is “Scholarship for Service”.

Members meet one to two times a month.  An elected body of officers, with the guidance of the CJSF advisor, runs each meeting.  Students participate in coordinating school activities, community service, and college enrichment activities.

One of the requirements for membership is good citizenship.  Another requirement is scholarship eligibility in the academic subjects of English, Science, Math, and History.  Each A earned is worth 3 points, any B in an Honors designated course is worth 2 points, and a B in any regular academic course is worth 1 point.  A grade of D or F will disqualify eligibility for that semester. A total of 8 points in the previous semester is required for membership.

The eighth grade membership drive runs in the fall.  Seventh graders can qualify after their first semester grades are posted. They may join in January during the spring semester.

Please see Mrs. Gonzales, CJSF advisor, if you have any questions.
