JCHS Journalism Students Win Honors at
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.
Alli Bedacht earned an honorable mention in theme design.
Sarah Swancutt earned an honorable mention in portrait photography.

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.

September 11, 2018

We have had a fantastic start to the 2018-2019 school year.  I have enjoyed getting to know our new families, both at the TPA meet-and-greet as well as at parent drop-off and pick-up each day.  I have also seen many of you volunteering in classrooms, thank you. 

Speaking of parent pick up and drop off, thank you for your flexibility with our new dismissal procedures.  As many of you already know we are asking parents who are picking up students to wait outside the gate until buses leave around 2:38.  I know this is different; however, we have found this new dismissal procedure to be safer, regarding congestion around the buses, and more efficient for students and staff.  Thank you for your support with this. 

I would also like to thank parents and families for getting their children to school and on time.  I know it is only the second week, but attendance is up overall from this time last year, so THANK YOU!  As we know attendance plays a significant role in long-term student success.  It does not matter how fabulous the teaching is or how compelling the curriculum might be – if a child isn’t in school, he or she is missing instruction time.  Missed days can be particular destructive in the early years, when students are learning the fundamentals.  Statistically, students are considered chronically absent if they miss 10 percent of the school year – typically that’s 18 days of school, or just two school days a month.  Whether absences are excused or unexcused missed days translate to missed instruction regardless of reason.  Please know that we understand sick days, but we truly appreciate your efforts to get your child to school and on time, it makes a big difference.  Tony Scurto, Lane ESD Superintendent suggests working on household routines to make getting out the door easier; set out clothes and make lunches the night before, put keys and bags by the door, put permission slips and homework in backpack, and plan ahead. Easier mornings make it easier to get out of bed and into class (Scurto, T. Local Schools and Communities are Ready to Help.  OregonFamily.Com, September 2018).
