Do you know what a dichotomous key does? Mrs. Simpson's class can answer this! Students in Mrs. Simpson's Science class used a dichotomous key to identify different types of rocks. A dichotomous key is used for the identification of organisms based on a series of choices between alternative characters. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

We are fortunate to have US Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Zachary Kappler visit Claremore's NJROTC Corps of Cadets. The Corps of Cadets is mustering (in uniform) in the Maker Space to hear Chief Kappler speak about his career in the US Coast Guard (USCG) and USCG opportunities. Chief Kappler drove from OKC, as there is only one USCG recruiting office in Oklahoma. Our Corps of Cadets Commanding Officer, Cayden Hudson, interviewed Chief Kappler for the "Cadet Minute." Watch it here ➡ https://youtu.be/0d9ke-tAqFE Learn more about the NJROTC program at CPS ➡ https://claremoreok.sites.thrillshare.com/o/chs/page/rotc #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Volleyball started a new tradition - leaving a legacy on and off the court. Beginning this year, each senior will choose a brick in the locker room to leave their handprint, name, and number representing their effort in building this program. This year's seniors sacrificed their blood, sweat, tears, and time for something bigger than themselves. We look forward to seeing ALL our seniors represented on this wall. May these bricks be a reminder for those who come after you of the foundation of sacrifice it takes to build a ZEBRA NATION. #CPSZEBARPRIDE

Students across the district were eager to return to the library this week to exchange their books. Did you know, reading not only widens a child's vocabulary, but through reading, children develop empathy, build confidence, and expand their imagination. Reading impacts many facets of a child's development! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Ever asked questions, and all you hear is the crickets? Mrs. Blankenship's class was full of crickets when she introduced the argumentative writing unit using a game of speed debating. Students had thirty seconds to argue their side of an issue. Let's say these crickets were chirping all hour. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

4th graders work on XtraMath on their laptops. XtraMath is an online math fact fluency program that helps students develop quick recall and automaticity of their basic math facts. Math fact fluency is so important as students begin to learn more complex forms of math! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Monnot from the City of Claremore, Storm Water Department, came to Catalayah to show our 5th graders about water quality, recycling, and how recycling will help keep the world clean. Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. Recycling can benefit your community and the environment. Fifth graders have the opportunity to participate in an art contest. The winner gets to have their art displayed on a trash truck for the next few years as a prize. Information for the poster submission is attached. We would like to have all posters turned in by March 2nd. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

If we ever get a snow day, these students will be ready! Mrs. Wallis' 2nd-grade is reading a book about Balto and his trip to save the town of Nome, Alaska, in 1925. The student completed a STEM project constructing sleds as an enrichment activity. The next time they get on a sled, we bet they will think about this activity and maybe ask some questions about how their sled was made. We love to see all their creativity! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Build it, and they will... learn math? Mrs. Bacon's class had a tower-building competition to see who could build the tallest tower. The towers were measured in centimeters and inches. Things got exciting when the towers grew taller than the students! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

🎤 Who is afraid to speak in public? Ms. Palmer’s 4th Grade English Language Arts teacher makes this new experience a little easier. After working through the writing process, students read their reports to their class. Many students lack experience with public speaking, so Ms. Palmer gives them some options to make them feel comfortable. They could sit or stand at the front of the room. They could also choose to be on “The Voice,” which means that everyone faces away from the speaker, or choose “American Idol,” where everyone faces the speaker. These strategies help students focus on being clear and concise instead of worrying about being in front of the class. These minor adjustments will help them build the confidence they need for future public speaking opportunities throughout their lives. We love watching your confidence grow! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
