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.

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.

Principal, Nadira Rizkallah
November 2018

Thank you so much for continuously supporting our students, families and staff member. This month Laurel students raised close to $950 through the Turkey Drive we had for the month of November. Because of our community’s generous contributions, we were able to extend the gift of giving and share 30 Thanksgiving meals with Laurel families. What a great way to teach our students about giving, compassion and gratitude, skills we focus on and teach to our students through the Laurel Vision. This event along with the recent cookie dough fundraiser that brought close to $11,000 in proceeds are great examples of the wonderful community we work in. To celebrate this success, we had so much fun during our silly string assembly where students who sold 10+ tubs of cookie dough got to silly string the Principal! All of this fun and support would not have been possible without the tireless work of our Parent Group who has shown unwavering commitment to our students and our school. To all those parents who give limitlessly to our school, THANK YOU!

At Laurel, we make a concerted effort to keep the Laurel vision alive and lived to the fullest extent. November/December focus of our vision has been on “each student is actively engaged.” We teach students that each of them is very important, and every student deserves an equitable learning opportunity. It is especially important to our staff to see each student achieving to his/her full potential, no matter who they are or where they come from.
