Boys Wrestling & Basketball Place at State!
Cowgirls Make State Appearance for Second Straight Year
Congratulations to the Cowboys and Cowgirls for qualifying for the 4A Basketball State Tournament in Forest Grove, March 9th - 11th. It's the first time in school history both teams have played in the state tournament together. The girls played tough but came up short in their first two games. The boys dropped their first game to Philomath but regrouped Friday and Saturday with wins over Baker and Marist Catholic to capture the 4th-place trophy. A huge SHOUTOUT to our CCHS Pep Band and Cheerleaders for attending all three days. Thanks to our awesome student section for the support on Thursday. CCHS had the loudest crowds in the gyms!
Boys Wrestling 3rd; Duran Made History for Girl's Wrestling
The Crook County Cowboys Wrestling team brought home a 3rd-Place trophy at the 4A State Tournament at Memorial Coliseum in Portland. Makenna Duran becomes the first CC girl's wrestler in school history to win gold! Gavin Sandoval also gets a 1st-place finish at 152! CC had a total of 12 wrestlers (1 girl and 11 boys) placed at state. Way to go!!!
Crook County FFA Chapter Update
Culinary Arts Wins State Competition; Heads to Washington, D.C.
Guess who has the best Culinary Arts team in Oregon? That's right! Crook County High School!
Congratulations to Mr. Macy Hagensee and his team of student chefs for winning 1st Place in the Oregon Hospitality Foundation's Statewide Oregon ProStart Championships in Salem on Monday, March 13th. The CCHS team included: Abbi Pack, Sawyer McDonald, Kiera Glenn, Tayah Hagensee, and Aspen Cross.
Students had to prepare a three-course gourmet meal with only two butane burners in less than one hour. Our team made Mediterranean Influenced Shrimp, Pan-Seared Pork Tenderloin Medallions, and a Silky Chocolate Mouse for dessert. Now they get to attend the national competition May 2nd-4th in Washington, D.C. How exciting is that? Great job and way to represent CC!
Students of the Month! 👏
Did you know that missing 13 days of school, whether excused or unexcused, classifies a student as chronically absent?
Research shows that:
By 9th grade, attendance predicts graduation rates better than 8th-grade test scores (Attendance Works: Keep Your Child On Track in Middle and High School).
Missing 10%, or two days a month, over the school year can affect a student’s academic success. (Attendance Works: Keep Your Child On Track in Middle and High School).
Tips to help your student be successful:
Make attendance a priority for your family by discussing the importance of showing up daily and making good daily routines, like homework time, wake-up, etc.
Help your student get engaged: it’s not too late to start a spring sport or join a club!
Communicate with the school: if your student needs help with attendance, please contact us so we can help!
