Bouncy balls, bouncy house, bouncy seat, but BOUNCY EGGS??? Can you make an egg bounce? Mrs. Ritter's 5th grade class at Catalayah decided to find that out. This experiment was not only fun, but students were able to experience chemical reactions in action. So the answer is, yes, you can make an egg bounce... but not too high. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE https://youtu.be/Vagmk6GnRo0

Can a persimmon seed predict our winter weather? Mrs. Westfall's class at Will Rogers Junior High decided to test this theory. According to folklore, if you crack open a persimmon seed and look at the shape inside, it can forecast the winter weather. If it's fork shape, winter will be mild. If the seed is spoon-shaped, there will be lots of snow, and if it's knife shape, the winter will be bitterly cold that cuts like a knife. So what do this year's seeds say about the upcoming winter? The class looked at the differences between male and female pine cones. They also cracked open persimmon seeds and found spoon shapes in all the seeds. It looks like we will be getting lots of snow according to our seed investigation! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

We know that being present is important for your child’s learning progress. What can you do to help them be at school every day? • Set a regular bedtime and morning routine. • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before. • Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home. • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning. • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent. • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

The TOSS Grant is a grant used to fund opportunities in Reading and ELL classes sponsored by Cherokee Nation. This grant funds supplies for activities implemented in the classroom to promote reading as a foundation for a courageous career. Through these activities students experience how reading is the foundation for ALL aspects of life. We must build solid foundations in reading to grow up one day and successfully navigate life after junior high. Showing our students some options for their futures is one way to accomplish that goal. Dan Newbury from Tulsa Fire Department shared the story,with students at WRJH, of his struggles with reading as a young man and how he has pressed through those obstacles and now serves the people of Tulsa as a Fire Captain! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Boyd's 7th-grade science class is studying adaptations in organisms. One type of adaptation is camouflage. Students were asked to predict which color of prey would be the easiest to find and the hardest to find. They were then given 5 minutes to collect as many prey as possible. After hunting, they sorted each prey by color, completed questions, looked at the data in a spreadsheet, and completed a graph comparing their data and class data to determine if their predictions were supported. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
