Why Wednesday ❓♥ We are starting a new series called "Why Wednesday" featuring our amazing teachers here at Claremore Public School and WHY they are passionate about teaching! Sara Lahr teaches Sophomore English at CHS, FUZE Mentor, and Assistant Dance Team Coach. She's been teaching for 8 years, all 8 years at CPS. She always knew she wanted to be teacher, " I saw how much influence teachers had, and I wanted to be one of those positive influences." ❔ WHY Statement: "I teach, because literature and helping are my passions in life, and having that joy in my job has seeped into all facets of my life. I want to help students explore not only their thoughts and feelings about literature, but about life and hopefully help them find their own passion. I believe that we create the life that we want and I want students to see that they create their future and to find something that brings them true happiness. " "Whenever I tell people what my job is, I get the same reaction of Ehh. And I always think to myself how sad it is, that they see it as a negative when I am beyond blessed to get to smile and laugh every day at my job. I feel so blessed to forge meaningful bonds wit my students who become my kids. I’ve cried with them, celebrated their successes and comforted them and love them as the amazing people they are." "Be the person you needed growing up" is a motto I live and teach by. Our #1 priority is to be role models for our students so they feel safe, seen, and respected. Additionally, I utilize my passion for teaching to help students explore their thoughts and feelings about themselves. I always ask, "What will make you happy?" Instead of "What do you want to do when you grow up?" I want students to find their passion and live life in whatever way will bring them true happiness and joy! " "Being a Zebra means treating every student as my own and giving them a sense of safety, importance, and acceptance." She knows CHS is family and is here to support each other. She chose to teach at CPS because of the amazing people who encouraged and helped her through her internship. She knew this was where she could grow and thrive. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #WHYWEDNESDAY

Claremore Public Schools names a familiar face, Dr. Schuyler Adkins, the new Westside Elementary Principal! Dr. Schuyler Adkins, former Assistant Principal at Claremont Elementary, is a familiar and well-loved face at Claremore Public Schools (CPS). He is a third-generation educator; education is in his genetics. Adkins has a highly robust resume with various experiences and backgrounds in the education field. He has been a teacher and administrator throughout his 17-year career, from elementary to the college level. Dr. Adkins brings life, positivity, hope, heart, and empowerment to the education profession. His devotion to teaching and belief in the life-changing power of education inspired him to pursue the Westside Elementary principal position. As principal of Westside, he finds it critical to unite and ignite joy in students, teachers, and parents! His goal is to utilize his passion and leadership to cultivate an environment where students know "that they are loved and cared for by staff who believe in a culture of trust, grit, and growth mindset! I want that positive culture to be at the core of who we are and to extend beyond our school walls to involve Westside families and the greater Claremore community". His leadership style is "not a top-down approach but a collaboration among all stakeholders," building relationships to impact culture, work environment, and academics positively.

Kicking off our first #ZebraTravelDiaries of the summer is Wyatt (5th at Roosa), Zoey (Junior at CHS), and Addisyn (7th WRJH), who traveled to Eureka Springs, Arkansas! They got to tour the grounds of the beautiful but famously haunted Crescent Hotel. It was a little cooler in the mountains, so Wyatt was happy he had his custom Claremore hoodie with him! Remember, it does not matter how far you go - just wear your ZEBRA LOGO and send it to jbrace@claremore.k12.ok.us. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Future Friday🏫🎓 $2 , 5 7 8 , 4 8 0 That is the amount of scholarships the Class of 2023 reported receiving this year. Over the next few weeks, we will celebrate those who received scholarships from our CPS partners who have invested in the future of our students. Two CPS seniors received *$2,000 and eleven received $1,000 each from the Bluejacket Scholarship Fund, totaling 13 scholarships and a $15,000 investment. Pictured representing their college of choice is: 🔴 Rogers State University: Emma Peters 🔴 Oral Roberts University: Brooklyn Doonkeen 🔴 Oklahoma State University: Kili Worth, Reese Newman, Emily Rogers, Raegen Hofstetter, Bryar Robinson, & (not pictured) Grant Evans. 🔴 John Brown University: Sadie McSpadden 🔴 University of Arkansas: Jenna Smalygo and Jonah Smoot 🔴 Undecided: (not pictured) Isaac Reedy The Bluejacket Scholarship was established by Donald and Estelle Bluejacket and is administered by the Claremore Public Schools Foundation. Having no children of their own, they arranged to leave a lasting gift to Claremore students. It was the Bluejacket's wish to give back to Claremore students in a meaningful and lasting way. In 2005, their estate was given to the Claremore Public Schools Foundation to invest for future Claremore students' generations. In 2007, Sam and Hazel Lessley added to the Bluejacket Scholarship endowment with a substantial contribution. The Bluejackets directed the Claremore Public Schools Foundation that scholarships be awarded to students "with proven records of academic achievement." #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #FutureFriday
