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."
October has been an eventful month at JCHS. Sophomores and many of our juniors took the PSAT on Oct 11th. Freshmen participated in team building and career exploration activities with TEAM teachers, and seniors worked with TEAM teachers on finalizing grad plans and community service obligations. We are reestablishing community service hours as a requirement for graduation, and will be working with the local Chamber of Commerce, service organizations, and any interested party from our JC community on giving our students multiple opportunities to serve.
Our first Latino Family Night was held on Oct 4th, with numerous parents and kids coming to campus to eat a catered dinner together, and learn more about high school opportunities, and community resources. We were excited to have a tremendous turnout.
Our entire freshmen class participated in the Lane County Career Fair on Oct 12th. Students met with various business groups, and some even participated in mock interviews. Mr. Young heard tremendous feedback from the panelists who mentioned JC students were some of the most marketable and respectful in comparison to all of the county students represented. Several may have even been hired if they were older than 14.
