Congratulations Class of 2018

Class of 2018

Karen Johnson is Retiring After 31 Years of Service

Karen is an Educational Assistant and Work Crew Leader at Crook County High School.

“My job at Crook County High School has been exciting, challenging and a joy. I have worked in a variety of classes over the years as a teacher’s assistant. This semester I am in an English and World Cultures class. I am responsible for the Study Center making contacts, doing paperwork and setting up jobs for the Work Crew. Our goal isn’t so much work skills as much as it is ‘soft skills’…teaching them to respect themselves and others, how to get along with someone they are working with but don’t like, how to present themselves in public, follow directions, learn call-in procedures for a job, work ethics, teamwork, and my overall goal: how important it is to be a good man.

I love the kids and the people I work with. I have made friendships in every school I’ve worked in, as well as in the community because of this job. I love being able to make a difference in someone’s life and always appreciate how they make a difference in mine. I will miss being able to keep everyone in the district informed on how the rodeo team is doing. I will miss my work crew boys.”

Crook County FFA Chapter Plant Sale


It is finally time…and I thank you all for your patience!  The Crook County Agricultural Science and Technology/FFA Greenhouse will be opening this Saturday, May 12th!  We will have the following hours set for the season:


Saturday:  9-4

Sunday: 10-3

Weekdays: 3:30-4:30


We will be closed on Mother’s Day so students can be with their families.  We will also be closed on Wednesday, May 16th for the Spring Animal Weigh In for our County Fair participants.  Lastly, we may be closed all of Memorial Day Weekend so student members can be with their families over the holiday weekend.  Please watch our Crook County FFA Chapter for details about the greenhouse hours.


A couple of reminders for our customers:

  1. We can take cash or checks, but will not be set up to use a card.
  2. Plants must be paid for at the time of selection.
  3. Plants must leave with the customer at the time of purchase.  We cannot hold plants for customers in the greenhouse.


We do not have a catalog this year to send out.  I have liked this in the past, but it has also led to some staff placing orders for plants, and not coming to get them/pay for them in a timely manner, leading us to number 3 above.  We do have a beautiful set of baskets, great veggies and a variety of bedding annuals this year.


CCHS Students Study Heart Rhythm

These students at Crook County High School are learning about the heart.  After learning about the cardiac conduction system, they were able to connect themselves to a 3 lead EKG and actually see and measure their own rhythms. They were then able to use software to analyze those rhythms and compare them to normal values. They’ve also been learning about abnormal rhythms that paramedics and doctors look for in patients who are in distress.

The equipment came from a Prineville Data Center Facebook grant. Crook County High School is very thankful to Facebook for the opportunity to give students these real-world experiences

Celebrating students’ decision to attend college, trade school, join the military, or enter the work force!
