Welcome to another Fridays with Frazier, Classroom Edition! In today's video, Mr. Frazier reflects on the past year. It's hard to believe that one year ago the global pandemic was announced. Mr. Frazier discusses the progress we've made in addressing the pandemic, the bond construction projects, and the state of Claremore Virtual School. The last part of the video is an interview with CVS teacher Connie McQueen. Mrs. McQueen teaches elementary students and discusses the bright spots of CVS. She also talks with a couple of students and parents to give us an insight into what those Google Meets are like. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #ClaremoreVirtualZebras https://youtu.be/LbqU9OAuBpM

Jana Shilling, the Choir teacher, is the site Teacher of the Year at Will Rogers Junior High. Mrs. Shilling has been driven to be like the outstanding teacher mentors in her life; ones who educated excellent musicians and made a deeper, more long-lasting impact on students' lives by teaching beyond their subject and providing students with real-life experiences and skills to transition into happy, successful adulthood. Doing everything she can to cross-teach music with every subject possible; for example, embedding literacy skills by relating all lyrics to current real-life situations students encounter and often struggle through socially and emotionally. Using music to help students raise their emotional intelligence is becoming the center of her classroom. The love, appreciation, and execution of a great piece of music are showstopping but helping students grow into mature humans is world-changing. Because she has a safe place and creative license to try new ideas, grow and transition professionally at CPS she feels empowered to do the same for her students. She thrives on opportunities to showcase her students, build their confidence, and ignite their potential. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE https://youtu.be/7w3mUJLSsGA

🎨 NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED 🎨 "Just thought I'd share this moment of Zebra excellence! An Art I student had no idea she could draw when she enrolled in Art for her required credit. This piece is her first portrait ever! It's such a super cool and special experience." - Mrs. Williams, Art Teacher. Here are a few other examples of some Art I projects. If you are looking to enroll in your required Fine Art credit, consider Art I. Both of our teachers know how to inspire, encourage, and help students develop their hidden talents. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

4th grade students in Mrs. Schell's class do a weekly recitation based on their figurative language skill for the week. These students practice memorizing their figurative language skill as they hold a yoga pose while saying it. Practicing balance and memorization simultaneously activates multiple parts of the brain, and therefore increases the ability to recall information. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

I woke up this morning, smiled at the rising sun. - Bob Marley There is always a crowd of spectators at any festival if there are steel drums in the mix; you can't help but smile, sway, and feel the sunshine in the beat. Mr. Peters at Roosa Elementary had his students feeling the sunshine when he taught a lesson on Reggae music, a music style that originated in Jamaica. Students learned about Jamaica, famous musicians like Bob Marley, and how to play the steel drum! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

March is Youth Art Month! Youth Art Month is a celebration of the visual arts. Youth Art Month's goal is to raise awareness of the importance of Art in schools and garner support from local and state officials, businesses and community leaders, and even state and federal legislators. We believe that the visual arts - all of our specials programs - are critical to our students' mental health, emotional well-being, and general wellness. we'd love to see some of your child's artwork in the comments. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

🎗JOIN THE FIGHT! Order today! Cancer may feel like someone else's fight if you have not experienced it in your own life. But CHS has decided THEIR FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT! Over the past four years, the ZUAC (Zebras United Against Cancer) Committee has helped raise over 9K to help our ZEBRA family members fighting this disease directly. We have supported students & employees with Lymphoma, Prostate Cancer, Leukemia, Ewings Sarcoma, Breast Cancer, & Pancreatic Cancer in our elementary schools, our junior high, and our high school. We have experienced this disease as a family district-wide. This is why our theme this year is "THEIR FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT" because family takes care of family. Although all our clubs contribute to the fundraising, the ZUAC t-shirt sales are the largest part of our efforts. We hope you will be a part of showing our #CPSZEBRPRIDE and giving hope to our ZEBRA family members. Zebras United Against Cancer t-shirt now on sale.

Telling a story — in paint, in a novel, through music — permeates everything an artist does. 🎨 Our art teachers have a passion for the art of helping students find their voice in their art. Yes, they teach technique, design, history but it's the ability to inspire the artist within that makes them great! 🎨 These projects are the product of some of our AP Art Studio students preparing for their AP portfolio submissions. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
