2020 CHS Homecoming King Brooks Sherl and Queen Faith Stone.
"We don't remember days; we remember moments." — Unknown. Tonight is one moment these royal Zebras will remember for years to come. The seniors have spoken and chosen 8 King and 8 Queen candidates for this year's royal court. Tonight they will reveal the 2020 Homecoming King and Queen, the entire student body has selected. Coronation will take place at 6:30 PM on Lantow Field. In all honesty, you don't need to be in the running for king or queen to look forward to homecoming. It's your last high school homecoming hoorah with your crew. Whether you are a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior, this moment will always have its memories.

Morgan and Gentry, Claremont Elementary students, have created a workspace on their kitchen table to complete their distance learning assignments. Here are some additional tips for successful distance/virtual learning. Let's start with a productive study environment. 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗹𝗲 - make a plan and stick to it. Whether you start early in the morning or at noon - start on time and move through the day with purpose. Set a timer to stay focused, give yourself intermittent breaks, but don't stray too long. Remember to finish your assignments for the day. Don't put off to tomorrow what you can do today. 𝗙𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 - You want to be comfortable, but not so comfortable that you fall asleep (studying in bed is not always the best option). Choose a desk, table, or bar - creating a designated space, so children know it's school time. 𝗟𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 - A study space that is not appropriately lit may make you feel sleepy and put a strain on your eyes. Adjust the lighting to make sure your screen contrast is comfortable to look at while working. Natural light is sufficient, but make sure the temptation to look out of the window doesn't distract you from your studies. 𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘀 - Have all the study materials you need to hand and ONLY the study materials to remove distractions. Keep traditional school supplies in a designated area. 𝗢𝗿𝗴𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘇𝗲 - A tidy and efficient desktop is a useful desktop, whether it's your real desk or on your computer. 𝗣𝘂𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆 - In this day and age, it might seem like an unrealistic request, but detaching from your smartphone while studying (unless you are studying on your phone) will allow you to get down to some serious work. 𝗦𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 - You may be the kind of person who enjoys a little background noise when studying. However, keep it at a low volume and make sure it's something you don't have to turn your attention to and manage often. 𝗝𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗱𝘆 - Make sure that the study space you have created is only used for studying, if possible. This space physically represents your dedication and focus on achieving your goals for the day. If it's impossible to have a dedicated space, make sure you can transform an appropriate area to and from your dedicated study space as seamlessly and tidily as possible. We understand that studying online takes dedication and discipline, but the advantages of getting your study method, space, and routine set up are totally worth it. Follow these tips to make sure you give yourself the best chance to succeed when distance or online learning and make your study space the place where learning happens. Keep sending in those photos of your child participating in Distance Learning Fridays. Comment on our FB post or email them to email@example.com. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

"Music is what feeling sounds like," unknown. Recently, 19 students from Claremore High School (CHS) sang their way to feeling accomplished, proud, excited, and honored. Why? Because they were selected to the 2020-21 Northeastern Choral Directors Association All-District Choir. These students gained membership through a choir singing audition process and were chosen based on the highest score. The competition included other students from several schools across northeastern Oklahoma, including Bixby, Owasso, and Bartlesville. This year two CHS students are receiving 6-Year medals. This distinguished and prestigious honor awarded to students selected to the All-District Choir every year from 7th through 12th grade. Kaitlyn Pinkerton and Max Stadler have demonstrated their commitment to improving and perfecting their vocal talents will be recognized for their accomplishments. The honor choir performs every year at 1st Baptist Church in downtown Tulsa. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, there will be no Honor Choir concert this year. However, you can hear these 19 choir members and their counterparts on December 12th at the annual CHS Christmas Concert.

IT'S HOMECOMING WEEK Over the past 100+ years, homecoming has grown into a production rivaling any 6A high school and even several colleges in Oklahoma. Claremore High School is rooted in tradition, but those traditions did not all begin on day one. Graduating classes have started, stopped, added, and changed those traditions over the years, and it's expected 100 years from now, they will continue to change. This year 59 CHS students receive recognition, in the homecoming festivities, for their outstanding efforts and contributions to CHS. Fifty-nine students actively participate and lead in an average of 5 co-curricular and extracurricular activities at CHS. These young people are woven in the fabric and culture of what it means to be a Zebra, so over the next few days, CHS will feature each of these representatives and tell you what their favorite part of being a Zebra is to them. ⭐ Ashley Adragna - ROTC ⭐ Molly Bazar - Art Club ⭐ Cauy Brooks - FUZE ⭐ Aaron Brown - Christian Club ⭐ Ella Claborn - Basketball ⭐ Ryan Conner - FCA ⭐ Tyler Douthitt - National Honor Society (NHS) ⭐ Brayden East - ROTC ⭐ Teah Ellard - ZTV ⭐ Mariah Galutza - Math Club ⭐ Christian Gotcher - Golf ⭐ Ben Haley - FFA You can find the homecoming schedule on the CPS website. https://www.claremore.k12.ok.us/o/chs/page/homecoming #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
