Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

Happy New Year!  As we approach the midway point of the 2nd Trimester, please continue to check the online Home Access program for most current grades and assignments.  Teachers update online reports at minimum every two weeks.  Please contact us in the main office if you have any questions about the program or need login information. 

This school year, we have been incorporating monthly all-school assemblies.  Topics have ranged from Oaklea spirit assemblies to guest speakers and even performing artists.  Last Friday, representatives from Ophelia’s Place (Eugene) came to talk with all of our students about keeping ourselves safe on the internet, and also the issue of cyberbullying and digital harassment.  Coupled with a parent night earlier in the week, we feel this information is valuable for our students to hear.  Lane Arts Council continues to partner with our school in bringing artists for our enrichment classes, and to integrate the arts with core subject material at the 6th grade level. 

As mentioned in this edition of the ITM, we are thankful to our parent and community volunteers who have been fund raising and now installing new playground equipment for “Our Backyard” project.  Many of our students were excited to see the initial stage of our new playground ready to play on after the holiday break.  I would also like to recognize Susie Freeman for her 4 years of dedication to Oaklea students, families, and staff as our Parent Group president.  Susie has spent hundreds of hours volunteering at Oaklea, fund raising for important projects, field trips, and technology, and helping us strengthen our connection to parents and the community with events and service opportunities.  She is being recognized at Monday evening’s school board meeting as the first recipient of the Junction City Public Schools “Volunteer of the Month”.  Thank you, Mrs. Freeman!!

If you would like to volunteer at our school, or attend a field trip or other school activity as a chaperone, please refer to the district website at   Under “Forms”, click on “Volunteer Background Check Application.”  Since we are not able to take digital applications at this time, please drop off your completed application at the Oaklea main office. 

Enrichment Classes: As you may be aware, we have incorporated afternoon enrichment classes into our schedule this school year, and students are rotating courses every 6 weeks.  Our teachers have been working hard to create engaging courses in a variety of fields: arts, physical education, music, foreign language, drama theater, and leadership to name a few.  As we rotate, students may be exposed to some content areas out of their preference areas, although we will try our best to schedule them for at least one within preference.  We want to encourage students to give these classes some time, and in many cases, we have found students growing to enjoy a new skill or enrichment area.  New classes will begin on February 1st.  This time period in the afternoon is also giving our teachers the ability to work with small groups of students on math and language arts support (Extended Learning Opportunities or “ELOs”).  These weekly ELOs are assigned to help students improve on a specific skill or learning target. 

Finally, statewide testing will begin shortly.  Our 5th and 8th grade students will complete Science testing in February.  Beginning in March, all students (5-8) will take the Smarter Balanced assessments in both Reading and Math.  Like last school year, students will only take the computer based assessments one time in the spring.  If you would like to apply to opt your student out of testing, take a look at the district website under “Parent-Student Resources”, and click on “Smarter Balance Information.”  Feel free to call me if you have any questions about testing or any other questions or concerns.  Thank you for your continued support of our students!

Brian Young
