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."
Wow, what a Harvest Festival! It was such a fun experience for our students. I find myself continually in awe of our parents and volunteers, the demonstrated dedication, creativity and willingness to step in and make things happen is truly inspiring. Thank you for all you do to make Territorial such a special place for our kids!
In addition to enjoying a fun afternoon of Harvest Festival activities, students also had the opportunity last month to create and design ceramic projects with Andrea DiPalma Yansane an Artist in Residencies with Lane Art Council. A big thanks to Ms. Peterman and Mr. Gift for their generous donation to make that happen, likewise to LAC who awarded us with a grant of $791.84 to cover the remaining cost of the program.
Within the program students learned about basic hand building techniques such as pinch pot, coil, clay sculpting methods, and adding attachments to sculptural and pottery forms to make unique and creative projects that included animal sculptures as well as pots with removable lids. Moreover, students learned about all of the stages in the ceramics process from digging clay out of the earth, to firing it in a hot kiln, to how to best create pieces that will be used daily in their homes.
