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).
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.
At JCHS, the spring season has brought a variety of activities and planning for next school year. Students have just completed the forecasting process for the 2018-19 year. This year, we emphasized the importance of working with TEAM teachers to choose courses. Students are completing a Personal Education profile which serves as a road map toward graduation. Teachers will be entering forecasting data this coming early release day, and this information will help us with determining FTE, and building the master schedule with support from counselors and department heads.
Our juniors have been busy with Smarter Balanced testing this month, and will continue into May. We are using a new testing method this spring that has students coming in alphabetically for blocks of time. This lessens time out of classrooms, and gives students the opportunity to focus on the task for longer periods on test days, but also ending sooner. We appreciate the flexibility of our staff in this process, as it has been a new way to approach state testing.
We would like to invite all of our current 8th grade parents to our Freshmen Orientation Night on Monday, April 30th at 6pm in the West Wing gym. This is a chance to meet staff, learn about ways to become involved and connected to the high school, and to select elective classes for 9th grade. We are also planning a new Freshmen Orientation in August. This will give our 9th graders a half day to spend with staff and mentors, before the rest of the student body arrives.
Mr. Young and Mrs. Marschall visited classrooms during the month, and continue to be impressed with the level of engaging activities taking place. Teachers met with administrators for goal check-in meetings this past week, and continue to focus on monitoring student learning growth.
