On May 12th, 40 JCHS student-scientists took a field trip to participate in the U of O Science Day. Highlights of the trip included visits to Zebra Fish lab, Bio Chem demo, Nano Technology lab, Laser lab and Leaf Cutter Ant Colony (only school in the US doing research). Students were able to view and participate in cutting edge technology executed primarily through undergrad research!
Many of our graduating seniors- a number of whom will be pursuing higher education in the STEM fields- were honored at the Annual Education Together Foundation Awards night, May 16th.
Junction City School District is committed to Engage, Inspire and Educate all our students by offering physical education, music, comprehensive art, computer technology, as well as enrichment
and academic support in before
and after school programs.
I can’t believe our 2016-2017 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 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 experience obtained through a career in education enriches teachers’ lives immensely. However, I believe it is the knowledge that they are helping to shape the future, not only a child’s future, but the future of our society, that lends a sense of higher purpose to the work. It is the process of giving that so profoundly creates a sense of meaning in one’s life. Teachers, to me, are gift givers.
It is with this in mind that I want to acknowledge the gifts that one of our teachers has given over the course of many years at Laurel. It is with profound and humble respect that I celebrate and honor the retirement of our Music Specialist, Mrs. Deborah Adams. I am in the unique position to be able to speak to her outstanding ability and compassion through the eyes of a principal and an amazed and inspired friend of Mrs. Adams….Mrs. Adams both taught and helped to shape, in beautiful and profound ways, many of the Junction City children....She has poured her love, her passion and her heart into her job, and for that we will forever be grateful. Please join me in honoring the gifts that Mrs. Adams has given our children, our community, and our society. Let us, as a community, give her the gift of wishing her an incredible journey into her next adventures. You are very much loved, Mrs. Adams!
On another happy note, 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.
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!
