January 2019
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
January is School Board Appreciation month. The staff at Junction City High School would like to thank each of the JC School Board members for their volunteerism and service. It is an honor and privilege to work with a Board that puts our kids first. Every decision that is made comes from that perspective. We appreciate their service to our schools and community.
The new year has brought a new chapter for Junction City High School. Our new main building opened for students and staff following return from the holiday break. Science teachers waited patiently for two additional weeks, and are now enjoying the new space with students. This month, we welcomed in parents and students for Winter Conferences, and many people were able to spend time walking throughout the new building and renovated spaced on a self guided tour. Students are enjoying the new common areas for collaboration and fellowship. KMTR (Channel 16) news visited campus and has a feature story on their website. We are looking forward to guided tours for the community this coming month of February. Once again, we want to thank our JC community for passing the Bond Measure and allowing our staff and students to work in the newest high school building in Oregon. Our students and staff are truly enjoying the new learning environment. We also have a new media center (library) in the main building.
Our JC Robotics team made history at the district competition this past weekend. The Phoenix 4480 team won the competition, and the Infinity Angles won the Think Award. Both teams qualified for the regionals coming up in Roseburg. The JC Cheerleaders are into their competition season, and OHSET is just about ready to get underway as well. We also have our Chess team competing this winter and traveling to various venues. Winter sports are heading down the stretch in district play, with swimming, wrestling, and boys and girls basketball competing. We will be hosting our District wrestling meet on Friday, February 8th.
The JCHS Hall of Fame banquet took place on January 19th, with several individuals being inducted, including Craig Lannom, Jason Haddy, Jamie (Breese) Jenson, Rich Milne, Ty Rothenberger, Bill Carson (class of 56), and the 1999 State Champion Golf Team. This was an unforgetable night of story telling, tears, laughs, and a reminder of the heritage we have at JCHS.
We are excited to announce that professor Jim Garcia from LCC will be teaching a course called Puertas Abiertas this winter and spring. This class will give some of our Latino and Latina students college and career readiness skills, as well as connections to opportunities. Jim asked for 10-15 students, and he graciously took in 16. Daniel Pozos was instrumental in recruiting students and introducing parents to Jim at an evening gathering.
The Rural Schools Network provided a consultancy team visit to JCHS, with several guests present to learn more about our high school, and to provide us with feedback at an all-staff meeting. They observed several classes, spoke with admin, teachers, and students, and spent time looking at our culture and climate. We believe this will help us as we strive to provide the very best for our students.
Just around the corner, we have the Tiger Auction coming up on February 2nd at 6pm over at Shadow Hills. The Missoula Children's Theater will also be performing shows in the high school theater that day. Go Tigers!
