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.

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
September 2018
The first three weeks of school have been so wonderful at Laurel. It was amazing to see how eager our students were to start yet another year filled with fun and lots of learning. We kicked the year off with a focus on our Laurel vision and an emphasis on our growth culture. We believe that through nurturing a growth mindset and culture, our school will have a significant positive impact on students’ achievement and on staff member’s self-efficacy and belief in their ability to be highly effective educators.

Laurel’s community is an exceptional place because of the support, warmth and compassion of the school community and the community at large. Our staff members understand that their role is not to simply teach our children how to read and write, but to also help them develop emotionally and socially. As such, the whole Laurel staff, classified and licensed members are encouraging all kids to “Make the World a Better Place” by showing empathy, compassion, kindness and altruism. We focus on these character traits to help our community nurture a positive school culture where each and every member of the community feels loved and safe. In addition our staff members are engaging in implementing our social/emotional curriculum called Zones of Regulation. This is our second year of implementation, and we can already see the difference it had on helping students express and understand their emotions.
