JCHS Yearbook Takes First Place!
This summer five JCHS students and their advisor Liz Henderson attended Yearbooks Northwest yearbook camp on the campus of Willamette University. Mariah Evans, Lili Hernandez, Jessica Puderbaugh, Carley Webster and Alli Bedacht spent three days learning from national yearbook experts on the areas of design, concept, writing, editing, photography and more. The culmination of the camp was the creation of a theme package to be used for the 2017-2018 yearbook. Out of 32 schools present from Oregon, Washington and California our students took first place earning the Outstanding Theme Package award!
Oaklea Middle School Awarded
Don't Quit Fitness Grant
School wins $100,000 Fitness Center
Governor Kate Brown announced that three
Oregon schools have been selected by the National Foundation for
Governors’ Fitness Councils (NFGFC) Don’t Quit! campaign to
receive $100,000 fitness centers. Neil Armstrong Middle School in
Forest Grove, Weston Middle School in Weston, and Oaklea Middle School
in Junction City were each chosen after an application and review
process conducted by NFGFC.
“Congratulations to Neil Armstrong Middle School, Weston Middle
School and Oaklea Middle School on their selection,” Governor Brown
said. “It’s no secret that when healthy eating and exercise are
introduced during adolescence, young people continue to make those
good decisions throughout their lives. I thank the National Foundation
for Governors’ Fitness Councils for helping these three middle
schools promote active lifestyles in young Oregonians.”
The state-of-the-art fitness centers will be unveiled this fall. Each
fitness center is financed through public/private partnerships and
does not rely on taxpayer dollars or state funding.
2016-17 Principal, Brian Young stated: "We thank Betsy Wolfston for her work to
convince us to apply for this grant, and for helping us submit an
outstanding application. I'd also like to thank Ed Madison and his
JLI team through the U of O for their work to complete an amazing
video to showcase the real need for new equipment at Oaklea.
Christopher Trotchie filmed, produced, and edited the video for us.
Thanks to Chris Surface and Raquel Cope as well. As you will see,
they did a tremendous job in the video.
This was an awesome example of using a current community partnership
(Lane Arts Council, ArtCore team, and the U of O JLI program) to pool
resources together in applying for more opportunities for our kids."
Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,
November is a month of thanks, and so, on behalf of the staff at Oaklea, we’d like to thank each family for their support. This has been a great year and we appreciate the hard work that goes into helping your children be successful. I would also like to thank our entire staff who have been putting so much time and positive energy into our students to be the best they can be.
Family Fun Night is Thursday November 9th from 6-8pm. This event is great fun for the whole family and our Book Fair will be open that night too, so bring your family in and have some fun with us! A reminder that Friday, November 10th we will not have school in observance of Veteran’s Day. We also have an early release day on Wednesday, November 29th with school ending at 1:22. First Trimester is coming to a close November 30th, so encourage your child to get all work completed and turned in. There will be no school Friday, December 1st and Monday, December 4th as teachers work on final grades and professional development. We will once again be having the Winter Giving Store December 5th through the 7th, where students can use earned Tiger Stipes to “purchase” items!
Please help us to keep our students safe by observing the yellow painted areas in front of Oaklea on Rose St. and our parking circles. We’ve seen an increase in cars stopping along the road in these yellow painted areas and it is making it more difficult for staff and motorists to see cars coming, see students walking, and in general more congestion at the entry of our South lot. Please park across the street in the Laurel Field parking, The Latter Day Saint Church parking lot (which we appreciate), or further down Rose St. If using the lots across the street please remind your children to use one of the painted crosswalks for crossing Rose St. We really want to make sure everyone is safe and we appreciate your help in this matter.
