Junction City High School has been Awarded over $300K in Grant Funds to Revitalize Culinary Arts Program

Junction City High School students will have expanded access to college credits and career training thanks to a career readiness grant from the State of Oregon! JCSD, along with 32 other Oregon school districts received 10.3 million for hands-on learning that offers high school and college credits.

Junction City and Bethel were the only two Lane County School Districts to be named CTE Revitalization grant recipients.

The Career Technical Education (CTE) Revitalization Grant awarded to the JCHS program is worth over $300K and will allow a complete renovation of the Culinary Arts Program. The resulting upgrades will make curriculum expansion possible as it increases the classroom/lab capacity, quality of facilities, access to dual credit options and will allow for participation in county and statewide culinary competitions.

Through our close work with Lane Community College industry partners and local businesses, we have identified a path to articulation of our cooking courses which is dependent on identified facilities upgrades.

We are delighted that Junction City students will have another great Career-Technical Education path available.

October, 2017

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.
