Welcome Back!


Principal Kurt Sloper

Greetings!

Welcome to Crook County Middle School! We trust your Summer was memorable and hope that you are excited for a successful year at CCMS. It is our desire that you find our school a welcoming and safe place for our students where we partner to serve the success of their individual goals.

Our staff, students, families, and community are what truly makes our school a special place. As we begin a new academic year, we also welcome new faces to the CCMS staff. We are excited to introduce Rocky Miner – Assistant Principal, Michelle Malone – 6th Grade Math, Ciera Hensley – 7th Grade Resource, John Ferraro – 7th Grade Math, Katie Koch – 6th – 8th Grade Art, and Suzanne Green – 6th – 8th Grade Choir. Along with the rest of the staff, it is our mission to deliver a comprehensive academic support system, provide highly effective instruction, create a 21st century learning environment, and cultivate meaningful relationships with all students and families. This is all part of our commitment to every child, every day.

In accomplishing our mission it is vital that our students value the key components that have made CCMS one of the highest performing middle schools in the state regarding individual student learning gains. Be here all day every day. We know emergencies and sickness sneak up on us, but students also can’t learn if they aren’t here. Please communicate with us if an absence occurs. Get involved. Significant learning does not occur without a significant relationship. Participate in the variety of electives, sports, and clubs that CCMS has to offer. Give your best. Effort and work ethic matter and they will be required to perform at a high level in school and life. All students deserve success and giving your best effort is a part of that process.

Please feel encouraged to visit our website regularly to receive school information, teacher contact information, and online grade reports, among other updates. If you have not done so feel free to “Like” us on Facebook and follow along. We will try to post multiple times per week for routine school information in addition to fun happenings around CCMS.

We look forward to working with you as we make this year a terrific experience. Thank you for the opportunity to educate your child.

Go Colts!

STEM Camp at CCMS

Stem Camp

CCMS students had the opportunity to get their hands dirty at this summer’s STEM Camp hosted by OSU-Cascades and CCMS’s own science and math teachers, Mr. Poynor, Ms. Neuhaus, and Mr. Cripe. Through two days of modeling earthquakes, floods, and volcanic eruptions, the students embraced the true nature of science and engineering by trying new ideas and learning from their failures. The camp culminated with the students putting their learning to the test by attempting to design communities that would be resilient to every challenge the camp instructors threw at them including pyroclastic flows, lahars, flash floods, and seismic waves. A special thank you to all the participants in this year’s camp from all of the instructors.

Crook County School District Employee Marks 31 Years of Service

After 31 years in education, Dee Ann Lampert will retire. For the last 8 years, she has taught 6th grade Math and Advanced Math to students attending Crook County Middle School. Prior to that, she spent 23 years teaching elementary grades, K-4.

Dee Ann said the best thing about her job is building relationships with her students. She said it’s very rewarding to watch her students learn and grow over time. And, she feels fortunate to work with an amazing staff. She said the staff is extremely dedicated to helping students succeed, both academically and socially.

After retirement, Dee Ann is looking forward to a little slower pace and setting her own schedule.
