Oaklea is into ART
ArtCore Grant Awarded
Exciting News!  In addition to receiving the Studio to Schools grant, Oaklea will be one of five middle schools in Lane County to receive a shared $2.2 million of Federal government funding for the Arts. This is called the "ArtCore" grant.

ArtCore is an immersive studio-to-school arts integration project that will be implemented in five Lane County middle schools. In collaboration with Lane Arts Council, the University of Oregon, and participating districts, ArtCore will bring new, creative and collaborative opportunities to teachers and students. With a significant research component, ArtCore will help deepen our collective understanding about creativity, the arts, and teaching and learning at the middle school level.

The funding will be combined with the Studio to Schools grant money, and will encompass four to five years of art for Oaklea Middle School students!

We would like to thank Ross Anderson, from the Educational Policy Improvement Center, Liora Sponko, Executive Director of the Lane Arts Council, and the rest of the team at Lane Arts for their help in writing the proposal for the ArtCore grant and highlighting the features that will make Oaklea an excellent candidate to receive the funding.  Brian Young, Principal of Oaklea Middle School, reports that he is tremendously excited to see how the arts enrichment funding will strengthen student creativity, critical thinking, and engagement in classroom study.  Studio to Schools and ArtCore will combine to truly benefit all students at Oaklea.

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.
Enrollment: 526
Student Teacher Ratio: 30.94/1
Licensed Staff: 22

Principal, Brian Young


Please feel free to visit with myself and other parents at the Oaklea Parent Group meetings each month. If you would like to be involved or volunteer with the OMS Parent Group, please e-mail our parent coordinator, Susie Freeman:  Throughout the school year, there will be all sorts of opportunities for parents to be involved at Oaklea.  If you would like to volunteer in our school, please start the process by filling out the online version of the district volunteer application: (click on “Forms” and then “Volunteer Background Check application).  

Exciting Announcement: As mentioned in June, Oaklea has been selected as one of 18 schools in the state to receive the Oregon Community Foundation’s “Studio to Schools Grant.”  The multi year, $280,000 grant will allow us to greatly expand our arts enrichment opportunities for students within the school day, in addition to the development of after school components. This grant is exciting for our staff and student body! 

Please remember to stop by the Main Office when you visit our school. We’ll ask you to sign-in and wear a Visitor’s Badge. This procedure helps us keep the building secure as well as assisting you with any questions you might have.

As always, feel free to email, phone (998-3381), or e-mail/call specific teachers to schedule a conference to discuss any of your school questions or concerns.  I am looking forward to an exciting 2014-15 school year at Oaklea Middle School!
