Woodcraft business comes to Crook County Middle School

On Wednesday, October 11th, a local businesswoman, Jodi Kerr of Meandering Maker, spoke to Crook County Middle School woodshop students about her woodcraft business and how she uses basic woodworking skills to make products for her craft parties. She showed students how to make these pumpkins for the fall season and donated a Kreg Jig to the woodshop so that students can make some of their own. Thank you, Jodi!


Student Spotlight – Cole Calhoun

Student Spotlight

“Cole Calhoun is an eighth-grade student at Crook County Middle School.  Cole’s steadfast desire to improve himself and help those around him are contagious as he demonstrates selfless service and leadership in the building. As a student who has already claimed his future, Cole often interfaces with his teachers at lunchtime and then helps other students who are struggling to learn. He can be seen frequently throughout the building as an office aide helping others and holding the front doors open and greeting students with a positive message as they arrive at school. He partnered with another student to initiate a weekly meeting for athletes to build character on and off the field. Fifteen athletes are currently attending, and the number grows weekly.  Cole Calhoun exemplifies Colt mentality, and he is paving the way for others to follow him to a bright future.” — Scott Buchanan, 8th Grade Teacher

Learning about the tools of Science


Thanks to Thermo Fisher Scientific, Mrs. Walker’s science class received 187 STEM kits for 8th-grade students at Crook County Middle School. Each kit is comprised of 5 pairs of non-latex gloves, 1 pair of lab goggles, 1 lab apron, and 1 lab notebook in a drawstring backpack. These 8th-grade students spent their lab time learning about the tools of Science.
