Oaklea Middle School Awarded
Don't Quit Fitness Grant
School wins $100,000 Fitness Center
Governor Kate Brown announced that three Oregon schools have been selected by the National Foundation for
Governors’ Fitness Councils (NFGFC) Don’t Quit! campaign to receive $100,000 fitness centers. Neil Armstrong Middle School in Forest Grove, Weston Middle School in Weston, and Oaklea Middle School in Junction City were each chosen after an application and review process conducted by NFGFC.

“Congratulations to Neil Armstrong Middle School, Weston Middle School and Oaklea Middle School on their selection,” Governor Brown said. “It’s no secret that when healthy eating and exercise are introduced during adolescence, young people continue to make those good decisions throughout their lives. I thank the National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils for helping these three middle schools promote active lifestyles in young Oregonians.”

The state-of-the-art fitness centers will be unveiled this fall. Each fitness center is financed through public/private partnerships and does not rely on taxpayer dollars or state funding.

2016-17 Principal, Brian Young stated: "We thank Betsy Wolfston for her work to convince us to apply for this grant, and for helping us submit an outstanding application.  I'd also like to thank Ed Madison and his JLI team through the U of O for their work to complete an amazing video to showcase the real need for new equipment at Oaklea. Christopher Trotchie filmed, produced, and edited the video for us. Thanks to Chris Surface and Raquel Cope as well.  As you will see, they did a tremendous job in the video.

This was an awesome example of using a current community partnership (Lane Arts Council, ArtCore team, and the U of O JLI program) to pool resources together in applying for more opportunities for our kids."

The Laurel staff is honored to be nominating fourth grade teacher, Leigh Wilcox, as the Junction City Distinguished Educator of the year. Mrs. Wilcox spent her entire educational career shaping the personalities and future of the Junction City children. She has a unique ability to influence the minds of children in an incredibly positive way. The experience obtained through a career in education enriches a teacher’s life immensely, and one can very clearly observe this growth and richness in Mrs. Wilcox’s daily educational practices. Especially noteworthy is her ability to build a tight, loving, well developed community, where each and every student is thriving in their own unique way. When you walk in her classroom, you can instantly feel a sense of belonging, meaning, and contribution to the common good of the whole classroom. I believe it is the knowledge that she is helping to shape the future, not only the students’ future, but that of our society, that lends a sense of higher purpose to her work. It is the sense of giving, that she very well cherishes, that is so profoundly worthy of recognition and appreciation.

Open house was a huge success at Laurel. We received lots of positive feedback from parents about the improvement in the physical space and the visible nurturing and positive culture. Many parents indicated that children seem happy and well taken care of. They have also given positive feedback about our new teacher additions with great emphasis on their positive energy and passion for kids.
