JCHS OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books)
Region 3 South Champions!
The Rabid Unicorns competed in March in the Region 3 South Championship, and earned the title of champions as they beat out North Eugene High School in the finals and were undefeated!! They will now travel to the State Championship this Saturday at Chemeketa Community College. Please congratulate and encourage Alex Keathley, Jackie DeBoer, Beth Knope, Kieley Leatherwood and Brennan Leatherwood, as they compete against teams from across the state of Oregon in the hunt for the state title!
OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) is a reading comprehension quiz bowl that requires contestants to remember as much detail as possible literature represented in the competition.
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.
Exciting news at Oaklea! We have just learned that we are one of 15 schools in the state to receive the “Studio to Schools Grant” from the Oregon Community Foundation. For the next three school years, we will receive $70,000 a year for arts enrichment, with $35,000 reserved (based on our use of the grant funding) for year 4 and 5. This grant will bring a total of $280,000 to Oaklea! Grade levels will be targeted each year, with emphasis ranging from such areas as digital media and design, video production, music, drawing & painting, and performing arts.
This grant has the potential to bring a lot of resources and en-richment to our students, and will definitely provide a serious amount of "fun learning" to our middle level programs.
We appreciate all of those who have been involved in the groundwork. Lane Arts Council definitely deserves praise for choosing us as their nominee and helping to propose the best proposal for Oaklea to receive the funds. It is a great time to be a Tiger. Combined with the $475,000 grant JCHS has just received for Career and Technical Education (CTE), our students will truly be the beneficiaries.
As we enter the final days of the 2014-15 school year, here are some important activities:
