Sixth-Grade Students Experience Outdoor School

 

Outdoor School

Sixth-grade students get hands-on learning experiences at Outdoor School. Teachers are able to extend classroom subjects such as science and language arts, and students get an outdoor experience free from electronic devices.

 

Congratulations to the CCMS Pentagames team!

CCMS Students Learn about Coding

High Desert CTE invited Crook County Middle School Computer Science (CS) students to experience the coding of music and lights. Each student was given a doll part to code and then come together to make the dolls appear to be dancing to the music. This innovative way to teach code is through a partnership with Western Oregon University who is combining theater and CS as a way to showcase CS in a different way!  

CCMS was fortunate that Facebook and Sphero representatives visited and led a class on programming and computer coding recently

Facebook and Sphero

More than a hundred students got to hear a presentation about Facebook and get hands-on experience with Sphero robotics. They were able to cover the basics of coding that will expand as they study computer science and coding in class. As a bonus, Facebook and Sphero donated multiple sets of Lego, Sphero and Vex Robotics. A very generous gift! Thank you Facebook Data Center and Sphero for supporting CCMS students!

Character Strong Workshop.

On Monday all CCMS & CCHS staff participated in a Character Strong workshop. Adults focused on teaching character values, building positive school wide culture, and creating schools where students feel valued, cared for, and respected. It starts with each of us and all of us. Great work staff!

CCMS Celebrated the End of the First Semester with a Career Day.

 

Career Day at CCMS

There were 21 presentations on display throughout the day involving a variety career clusters. Additionally, we had COCC, OSU Cascades, & Warner Pacific University presenting as well. The objective was to increase student awareness and exposure to a variety of careers. This will help provide value, perspective, and connection to our students’ education. We loved having our community and regional partners in the building.

 

Mr. Sloper was presented with a paper mache version of himself by students from the Art Enrichment Class.

Testing distance and accuracy at Crook County Middle School

Mrs. Crouch’s Engineering class at Crook County Middle School built catapults last week and finished the lesson “storming the castle” to test their design. Students enjoyed testing the distance and accuracy of their creation.
