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.

Territorial students participated in our first “Fresh Food Friday”, where students got to taste “Turtles in a half-shell”, otherwise known as kiwis cut in half, along with a few fresh carrots.  The goal of Fresh Food Fridays is to introduce diverse, in season produce to students.  Our first Fresh Food Friday was a huge success, with students gobbling up everything on their tray, and even asking for seconds. 

Territorial’s efforts to promote and support health and wellness for all students continued with staff participated in CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Heath) physical education training, on February 28th.  Jennifer Webster from Lane County Public Heath focused her training around the CATCH PE goals, which are: students enjoy physical activity, students are engaged in moderate to vigorous physical activity at least 50% of class times, students have a chance to participate and practice skills, and students are encouraged to be active outside of class.  Likewise, we reviewed the importance of teacher interaction, providing encouragement, and explaining the benefits of physical activity.  We learned new ways to implement CATCH equipment and curriculum, adapt elimination games so students are not just sitting out, and the powerful use of music to engage and motivate movement. 

On March 2nd, students and staff participated in an assembly and a 30 minute school-wide read-a-thon in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  The festivities started with third grader, Chloee Strasheim reading a poem she wrote about the power of books.  Then students in pairs of olders and youngers selected Dr. Seuss books to read to each other.  This year students read 544 books!  This was such a fun way to celebrate Dr. Seuss and the love of reading.  A big thank you to Kindergarten teacher, Pam Nelson for organizing the event!
