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 Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back!  The first two weeks of school have been so wonderful. It was amazing to see how eager our students were to start yet another year filled with fun and lots of learning.

The Laurel community is an exceptional place because of your support, warmth and compassion. Our staff members understand that their role is not to simply teach our children how to read and write, but to also help develop them emotionally and socially. That is the reason we constantly seek to build a partnership with you to achieve our school’s vision. Our staff’s commitment to you as parents and guardians, and to our students, is to work tirelessly to reach and develop each and every child to his/her fullest potential. To that end, Laurel is celebrating International Dot Day on Thursday, September 29th, which is also our Back-to-School Night. All staff and students are going to "make our mark" and #BeTheDifference! Everyone is invited to wear dots to commemorate this day!

International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration, began when teacher Terry Shay introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on September 15, 2009. The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe. We invite you as family members to wear dot-filled outfits and come join us on our Back-to-School Night to view an art gallery of your child’s “mark” or “Dot,” that will line all the halls of Laurel Elementary School. You will also get the chance to hear from teachers about their plan for the year to support our culture of growth and learning, including information on curriculum, field trips, programs and much more.

Can’t wait to see you all at our Back-to-School Night!!
