Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,
As we approach the end of the school year we’d like to take a moment to thank all the parents and guardians who have volunteered their time and or resources to our students, staff, and building. It is your help and involvement that makes this community special and Oaklea a great middle school! There have been so many different areas that your help has had a positive influence on our building. Thank you again and we hope you feel that your endeavors were well received and appreciated.
 
We are currently in the middle of our state testing window and our students and staff are working hard to do their best on these assessments. We changed the format a bit to accommodate more in-structional time prior to the assessments. Our 6th graders just completed 3 days of outdoor school at Camp Wilani in Veneta. As this was our first time we will take the experience and improve for next year, but we are very proud of our students and staff for the growth mindset and positive attitudes related to the opportunity. Please note that the 8th Grade Recognition ceremony begins at 6:00 p.m. on June 12th (Also 8th graders last day) in the OMS large gym. If you would like to volunteer to be involved in one of our end-of-year field trips, please fill out a volunteer background form located on the district’s website, and return to our front office. Space does fill up and we cannot always take everyone.
 
Get ready for the OMS Talent Show on Thursday, May 30th at 7:00. Our students are gearing up for what is always an amazing event you don’t want to miss! We still have track finishing up their season with the Regional Track Meet on the 8th of May here at JCHS. May 24th is a non-student day as we work on transitions from Elementary to Middle and Middle to High for students. 5th graders will be visiting the Oregon Museum of Natural History in early June, and 6th graders will be making their trips to Newport in May. As you can see, there are still many exciting events ahead!
 
The last day for 5th-7th graders is June 14th, ending at 12:52 that day. On behalf of the staff, we’d like to wish all Oaklea families an enjoyable spring and summer. This has been a fantastic first year as Principal and I’m so appreciative to have the opportunity to work with this great staff and all our fantastic students. For my 21st year at Oaklea Middle School I can honestly say it has been a great one!
 
Sincerely,
Justin Corey jcorey@junctioncity.k12.or.us
