School Bond Market Favors
Junction City
In a fluctuating market, Junction City School District was able to leverage buyers for a successful return on bond sales this week.  The District hired Piper Jaffray to facilitate $14.635 million in bond sales as generously authorized by our voters this last May.  All bonds were purchased during the sale window coordinated between the District and Piper Jaffray.  The calculated yield rates made them very palatable to a number of financial management companies, private investors, and industry professionals.

The estimated tax rate impact to our community was originally stated in our informational bond campaign as $1.62 per thousand dollars of assessed home value.  The final rate has come in just under that amount and is estimated to remain at that amount throughout the ten year term, thus meeting our commitment to our taxpayers.

Additionally, the structure of the sale enabled the District to also realize premiums paid by the investors.  These premiums have resulted in more than $2.8 million in additional capital construction revenue beyond the $14.635 million in bonds.  Combined with the $4 million in matching funds from the State, the District will have a total of just over $21.5 million in capital funds to invest in the projects identified under the initial bond title.  This means the District will be able to invest in more of the critical infrastructure needs at each of our buildings as well as achieve greater progress toward our high school investment master plan.

As outlined in our earlier bond information, the District will adopt an evaluation and decision –making process for distributing these funds to projects as identified in both our original bond title and master plan and will share the results with our community as that evolves.

Junction City students, staff, and community will be updated throughout this process, and our staff will be available to answer any questions.  This week’s bond sale success will allow us to further our goal of maintaining and advancing district facilities to support district educational goals, enhance safety, and promote community involvement.

Thank you again to all of our community for your support.

Dear Families,

I can’t believe our 2015-2016 school year is coming to an end! This year has been one of the best years in my career. Working in the Junction City community has been such a fulfilling and rewarding experience. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks and deep appreciation to all of you for sharing your kids with us this year. At Laurel, we work to nurture, love, educate and inspire near 520 students. Our staff members pour their hearts out day in and day out to serve our students and provide the best school experience possible. Thank you for letting us be a part of your child’s life. It has been a true honor.

The Laurel musicals were a huge success!  Thanks to all of you who came to cheer our students on as they freely expressed themselves through dance and singing. It was heartwarming and amazing to watch our kids perform. Please join me in thanking Deborah Adams, our music specialist, for providing our children with such a unique opportunity.

We have concluded our state testing and the students in 3rd and 4th grade did a wonderful job persevering through it. Thank you so much for supporting your students throughout the testing.

We continue to enjoy the end of year festivities and the students are having a blast. Thank you for helping your children finish this year strong by continuing to focus on our three school values: be safe, respectful and responsible. This is a special time of the year at Laurel where kids are making fond memories that last a lifetime.

Until my next newsletter, please have a magnificent summer, play in the sun, enjoy your children, and remember to laugh A LOT!!! We will miss all of our beloved students!

Best Wishes,

Nadira Rizkallah, Principal
