JCHS Journalism Students Win Honors at
National High School
Journalism Convention
San Francisco, CA
The publications crew attended the National High School Journalism Convention over the weekend in San Francisco. We took eight outstanding JCHS kids, who joined about 5,000 high school students for three days of intense journalism cramming (then we walked their booties off over hill after hill all over San Francisco).

Oaklea Middle School to Host
Regional OBOB Tournament
March 3, 2018
8am - 3:30pm
We are delighted to offer Junction City students the opportunity to participate in OBOB!  Through this program, our students have access to high-interest, high-quality literature.  OBOB guided discussions challenge students to work together, to think deeply, and to effectively share their thoughts and ideas.  AND, they love the competition and representing their schools!

We are honored to be hosting Lane County's middle school level OBOB tournament, and are very grateful that one of our master teachers at Oaklea, Stacey Johnson, was willing and able to take on the role of tournament director. This tournament will require a great deal of volunteer support; patrons interested in learning more about these volunteer opportunities are encouraged to contact Stacey at Oaklea.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Now that we have a few weeks under our belt, the 2018-19 school year is off to a great start. I wanted to share a few items of great importance in hopes that you discuss them with your student.

I am counting on you all to help me improve family involvement and input gathering in order to make Laurel the best place that it can be. To that end, I created several opportunities to allow for people with different skillsets, schedules, and lifestyle to be involved. Depending on your interest and availability, you can be part of the Coffee with the Principal monthly events, The Round Table, or the volunteer projects being extended to families who are passionate about our Nature Center or the Media Center (Please contact our wonderful volunteer, Susan Inman, for these projects at I included the dates for the Coffee and Round Table meetings below. You support is really needed and greatly appreciated.

We have started practicing our safety drills to highlight and put emphasis on safety procedures. Fostering a safe learning environment is in the core of the Laurel vision and we are focused on teaching this concept throughout the month of October and plan to continue in the months to come. In addition to fire, earthquake, lockdown/lockout, room clear and evacuation drills, we teach students that social-emotional safety is also important. We talk about friendship, compassion, and care for one another. We explain that a safe learning environment is the right of each and every student and that we are all responsible to make sure we contribute to such environment.
