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.
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! This will be a monumental year for Junction City High School, and we appreciate the patience and flexibility we all will need as we make the transition to our new buildings. On that note, the West Wing opened with student return this week, and the new building is set to complete later this fall. Our Main Office is temporarily in Room 1 of the West Wing. You can access that room by parking near the reader board off of 6th St. and heading right down the hallway closest to the front lobby of the West Wing. The phone number to reach the main office is still 541-998-2343. Calling that number will allow you to connect with other offices, the counseling center, Athletics, and individual staff members directly. The Registrar’s Office and Counseling Center are temporarily in the Pitney Center (across Maple Street from Washburn Park). We will soon be moving both of these offices to the old West Wing main office, near the front lobby.
Thank you in advance for your patience in reaching individual staff members by phone. Part of our bond measure included new phone systems. We are still in the process of securing phone extensions for all staff members. The best way to contact teachers will likely be via e-mail (see the JCHS website for addresses).
We kicked off the school year with several special guests visiting our campus on opening day. Oregon Governor Kate Brown toured the high school to learn more about our Career and Technical Education classes, including the new Culinary Arts room and the recently renovated Woods and Metals shops. She also toured the new building under construction. As you are likely aware, JCHS had an above state average graduation rate in the past couple of years. We have connected many of our students to the CTE programs, and have found the classes to assist us in keeping students engaged in their education. Other guests, including Deputy Superintendent of Oregon Schools, Colt Gill, Senator James Manning, and Representative Julie Fahey, visited JCHS with the group as well. Read More...
