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.
Junction City High School has been Awarded over $300K in Grant Funds to Revitalize Culinary Arts Program
Junction City High School students will have expanded access to college credits and career training thanks to a career readiness grant from the State of Oregon! JCSD, along with 32 other Oregon school districts received 10.3 million for hands-on learning that offers high school and college credits.
Junction City and Bethel were the only two Lane County School Districts to be named CTE Revitalization grant recipients.
The Career Technical Education (CTE) Revitalization Grant awarded to the JCHS program is worth over $300K and will allow a complete renovation of the Culinary Arts Program. The resulting upgrades will make curriculum expansion possible as it increases the classroom/lab capacity, quality of facilities, access to dual credit options and will allow for participation in county and statewide culinary competitions.
Through our close work with Lane Community College industry partners and local businesses, we have identified a path to articulation of our cooking courses which is dependent on identified facilities upgrades.
We are delighted that Junction City students will have another great Career-Technical Education path available.
At Junction City High School, we kicked off the month of February celebrating National Counselors month. We would like to thank our high school counselors, Brian Miller and Courtney Madsen, as well as our district psychologist, Dr. Sue Menen, for the work they do each day for our kids. Social and emotional well-being is essential for building connections and success in school, and we could not do this work without our amazing counseling team. On that note, Dean Sikes visited with our entire student body on February 2nd, and students made a commitment to choose life toward the end of the “You Matter” assembly. Students heard a powerful message of hope, and then debriefed with TEAM classes and teachers. We continue to build a network where ALL of our students on campus have a trusted adult they can turn to if they are struggling, or have someone else they are concerned about.
Winter conferences were held in the cafeteria to begin the month, as parents and students discussed midterm grades with teachers. Students are beginning to prepare for the upcoming AP exam circuit, and our juniors are preparing to take the Smarter Balanced assessments this spring. We also have several seniors finishing up their Essential Skills requirements by either taking one more round of SBAC exams in the area they need to demonstrate proficiency, or completing work samples with teachers.
In athletics and club activities, we held a Pep Assembly on February 8th and showcased every team competing this winter term: Robotics qualified for the State tournament this past weekend (results TBD), OHSET, Chess Team, Swimming, and Speech & Debate have completed or are wrapping up their seasons; JCHS qualified the most wrestlers to the State meet in over a decade with 8 wrestlers competing (the team brought home an 8th place finish in 4A and Bob Lee was voted Regional Coach of the Year). The boys basketball team fell just short of playoff qualification with several close losses in league play. The Lady Tigers basketball team just wrapped up a Sky-Em league title with a championship victory over Cottage Grove. Liz Bolton was voted in as league coach of the year, and Maddie Mehlbrech was the player of the year. The girls will host a play-in game this Friday.
