Claremore NJROTC Corps of Cadets recently had four cadets graduate from the 2022 American Legion Boys State held at Rogers State University. In a thank you letter to the sponsoring American Legion, one cadet wrote-- "They say that Boy's State is "the week that shapes a lifetime." This statement is absolutely true. The life lessons I learned have already had a huge impact on how I think and conduct myself." - Cadet Chandler Wilson. Cadets: Chandler Wilson, Tyler Trull, Colt Grubbs and Carter Grimes Congratulations to the Cadets! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Today's entry in our #ZebraTravelDiaries is another one from Ft. Walton Beach, FL. Hudson was the ring bearer and Riley the flower girl in their uncle's wedding. Both are Westside students. The whole Baldwin family repped their #CPSZEBRAPRIDE on the beach. Remember, it does not matter how far you go - just wear your ZEBRA LOGO and send it to jbrace@claremore.k12.ok.us.

When you have talent within your district, there is no need to go looking elsewhere. When we reached out to Morgan Wiggs, an art student at CHS and a member of the Class of 2022, to commission an original painting for the entry of the Administration offices, she was thrilled to lend her talent and time to create this one-of-a-kind piece. Nothing says #CPSZEBRAPRIDE like a red and white zebra stripe! CPS may have refined her skills and encouraged her love of art, but she has now left her mark hanging on the wall of CPS.

$2,871,825.40 That is the amount of scholarships the Class of 2022 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 *$1,500 and twelve received $1,000 each from the Bluejacket Scholarship Fund, totaling 14 scholarships and a $15,000 investment. Pictured representing their college of choice is: 🔴 RSU: Blake Hougland, *Ethan Weaver, & Jerrikka Hurt 🔴 University of Central Oklahoma: Caroline Cowherd 🔴 Oklahoma State University: Caroline Crum, Abbygale Hagen, *Leah Krueger, & Ryan Roberts 🔴 Drury: Aiden Boyd 🔴 Oklahoma University: Kaitlyn Lane & (not pictured) Molly Andrews 🔴 Oregon University: Morgan Wiggs 🔴 University of Arkansas: Alex Henning 🔴 Not pictured: Noah Spencer 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. I n 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

It's FLAG DAY. Here are our new flags and poles at Claremore High School made possible with the #ZebraBond2019. We'd love to see your flags flying. Post a pic in the comments. It is the day, 244 years ago, when Congress commemorated Betsy Ross' creation of the Stars & Stripes as our national flag. The flag has looked different throughout those years, of course, 27 variations, actually, as America grew through the colonies to the 50 states represented in the white stars today. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Maddox Thomas may have played her last game in her Zebra uniform this past weekend in the East/West All-State Games, but it was not the final game of her career.

Mr. Drew Cumming, a CHS history teacher, led eight CHS students on an educational travel tour to Washington DC this summer. For most, students have flashbacks of class discussions and pages and pages of assigned reading in their textbooks—but there's nothing like seeing and touching U.S. history firsthand, like reliving significant historical times that shaped the world they live in today. There is no better way to connect the words on the pages of their textbooks than to experience the people, places, and culture for themselves. Who knows, this trip may inspire them to become key players in American history themselves. The CHS roster included Levi Craig (9), Coleby Craig (12), Ethan Harrison(12), Ethan Hays (11), Eli Fouse (10), Gannon Riggs (10), Meadow Hiner (9), McKinley Grimes (11), and Rowan Brown (12- Adair Public Schools). #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

CPS teachers took part in the OK Donors Choose Grant process earlier this year. Thirty-four teachers at CPS received funding for their proposals, equaling almost $34K in grants. Mrs. Kropp, Roosa 5th-grade teacher, received 10 "surfboard" desks. It's no surprise that physical activity is linked to higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior. Mrs. Kropp knows there is no better way to show your support for a student-centered classroom than creating a classroom from a child's point of view. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
