Summer created two sculptures and received Honorable Mention. Third from left is Jenna Porter. Jenna received Honorable Mention for her artwork. Samantha Jenkins, far right, is holding her artwork, made from coffee and tea. Samantha received three awards for her painting: Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention.

These artists’ works will be on display at COCC in the Pinckney Art Gallery from Feb. 9 – March 1. Gold Key artwork will automatically be considered for competition at the national level. That means that one of Samantha’s paintings will be considered for the national show at Carnegie Hall in New York.

CCHS Students Practice Basic Dissection Techniques

CCHS Students Practice Basic Dissection Techniques

The dissecting of dogfish sharks took place in Mrs. Mumm’s science class this week. Crook County High School students practiced basic dissection techniques, conducted a survey of the major systems of the shark, and related their study of the shark to the structure and function of vertebrates. The dogfish shark helps provide some insight into vertebrate evolution and classification.

High School Students Learn about Velocity

High School Students Learn about VelocityCrook County High School students in Mr. Mumm’s science class studied the relationship between different types of energy. The students formed teams and created a ‘roller coaster’ using styrofoam, tape, cardboard, and marbles to learn about velocity. In addition to creating their roller coaster, students had to draw a picture of it and include the height/length. In the end, students had to show calculations used to get their final velocity of the marble.

Working Hard Pays off for These FFA Students


Crook County High School Agriculture Teacher and FFA Advisor, Dan McNary, had the opportunity to take a small group of Freshmen to the Central Oregon District FFA Ag Sales Career Development Event (contest) on November 7. The group of four members – Bailey Everest, Abby McNary, Mason Calhoun, and Marli McClellan – each took a test of 50 questions that dealt with all aspects of agricultural sales and marketing. Each member then attempted to sell a product of their choosing to a customer while being evaluated on their sales skills by a panel of judges. Dan and the students worked hard to prepare for this event. Their hard work and efforts paid off for them as they won the contest, besting the other five beginning teams from their FFA district handily.

In addition to the competitive success that this group had, they also assisted in delivering 677 pounds of non-perishable food to the First Baptist Church Food Pantry that the chapter had raised in the month of October with the help of Les Schwab, Wilco, the Prineville Band of Brothers, and our generous community. This was in addition to the 6,000 lbs. of potatoes that the chapter helped our FFA Alumni grow, harvest and donate to the Holiday Partnership to support families in need this holiday season. Congratulations and thank you to Bailey, Abby, Mason, and Marli.
