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).
JCHS Journalism Awards
On Friday late afternoon our students competed against the best in the nation in journalism competitions. We are beyond excited to announce that three students brought home awards for their work.

Lili Hernandez earned an honorable mention in cover/endsheet design.
Alli Bedacht earned an honorable mention in theme design.
Sarah Swancutt earned an honorable mention in portrait photography.

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 Families:

I can’t believe we are planning for the end of school already! This year has gone by so fast. There is a lot of fun coming up in the next few weeks at Laurel and I wanted to highlight some of the major activities that will take place. Joy has been identified by the Laurel community to be a core value and we are keeping this value in the forefront of our minds as we plan for a strong conclusion of this magnificent school year.

 Kindergarten Kick off, May 23rd: (1:30pm day session and 5:00pm evening session): We are looking forward to hosting all of our incoming kindergarten families for a fun-filled, informational event. You will get to meet the Kinder Crew (staff) and receive information about our program and ideas on how to prepare your children for kindergarten. You and your children will also enjoy a school bus ride around the neighborhood. If you know a parent, friend or neighbor who has a kinder student, please spread the word.

May Spirit Days: Every Friday in May is going to be a spirit day. Students voted on themes for those days and they are so excited to dress up for these events. For example, last Friday was twins day. Please refer to the flyer sent home last week for the rest of the May month spirit day themes. Those are super fun days and kids enjoy every bit of it!

Swim Week, June 11-15th: This week is probably the most favorite week of the year. Students in grades 1-3 will be going to the pool next to our school to swim with their class for 30 minutes each day. Each year, students look forward to having loads of fun during this week.
