  • CJ Junior High student is showing heart this Halloween

    This is Isaac, an 8th grader at CJJH. Isaac celebrated his birthday earlier this month by using the money he had been gifted for the occasion to purchase two brand new Batman costumes and then donating them to students in need at the K-1 building to wear on Halloween. Isaac did this in memory of his baby brother Lucas, who loved the superhero, and tragically lost his life to illness in August of 2016, passing away at the age of 2.
