National High School
Journalism Convention
San Francisco, CA
The publications crew attended the National High School Journalism Convention over the weekend in San Francisco. We took eight outstanding JCHS kids, who joined about 5,000 high school students for three days of intense journalism cramming (then we walked their booties off over hill after hill all over San Francisco).
JCHS Journalism Awards
On Friday late afternoon our students competed against the best in the nation in journalism competitions. We are beyond excited to announce that three students brought home awards for their work.

Lili Hernandez earned an honorable mention in cover/endsheet design.

Oaklea Middle School to Host
Regional OBOB Tournament
March 3, 2018
8am - 3:30pm
We are delighted to offer Junction City students the opportunity to participate in OBOB!  Through this program, our students have access to high-interest, high-quality literature.  OBOB guided discussions challenge students to work together, to think deeply, and to effectively share their thoughts and ideas.  AND, they love the competition and representing their schools!

We are honored to be hosting Lane County's middle school level OBOB tournament, and are very grateful that one of our master teachers at Oaklea, Stacey Johnson, was willing and able to take on the role of tournament director. This tournament will require a great deal of volunteer support; patrons interested in learning more about these volunteer opportunities are encouraged to contact Stacey at Oaklea.

From the successful Scholastic Book Fair and Open House/Curriculum Night, to the annual Jog-a-Thon, which has already raised quite a bit for school programs and activities, it's clear Territorial and our ever involved and supportive parent group are off and running this year!  Coming up there will be an Outdoor School planning meeting on October 29 at 2:45.  We would love to have you there.  Also,  TPA will sponsor an all-school Harvest Party on the afternoon of October 31st (no costumes please), with the Taste of Territorial Spaghetti Feed and Art Show scheduled to take place on November 16th at the Long Tom Grange.

This month marked the start of two very popular school programs including LEGO League and OBOB. Students in LEGO League were presented with the challenge of improving an astronaut’s trip to the moon by improving his living conditions.  Students in the club have been doing research to gather information regarding astronauts’ living conditions.  Many in the group even traveled to the space museum last week to speak with an astronaut in person, and ask questions regarding his experience with space travel.  Students were intrigued with this fascinating glimpse into aviation living conditions.  Students in this club are also learning about programming robots to complete predetermined tasks and challenges.  These students will compete in a LEGO League tournament in December.  Oregon Battle of the Books also got underway this month and looks to be generating a lot of excitement among involved students.

Our 4th grade students along with several parent volunteers had the opportunity to participate in a fun and exciting field trip to OSU to learn about the aspects of science and technology relative to wood and wood products.  Students and parents visited a series of nine interactive stations that focused on wood products and their uses.  Preschool, Kindergarten and 1st grade students enjoyed a trip to Bushe’s Farms where they visited the Pumpkin Patch, selecting their very own pumpkin to bring home.  Finally this month, 5th graders, as a part of their ongoing partnership with Walama Restoration, went to Cherry Orchard, were they learned about the wetlands and how to protect our environment.  They also planted native wetland plans to help protect the environment for the wildlife that live in that area. 
This year second grade has had the opportunity to participate in Roots of Empathy.  Roots of Empathy is an international, evidence-based classroom program that has shown significant effect in reducing levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy.  At the heart of the program is a neighborhood infant and parent who visit the classroom every couple weeks over the school year. A trained Roots of Empathy Instructor coaches students to observe the baby’s development and to label the baby’s feelings. In this learning situation, the baby is the “Teacher” and a lever, which the instructor uses to help children identify and reflect on their own feelings and the feelings of others. The literacy taught in the program lays the foundation for a safer and more caring classroom, where children are the “Changers”. They are more competent in understanding their own feelings and the feelings of others (empathy).
