November is Native American Heritage Month so we checked in with the @Claremore Museum of History to share our rich Native American roots here in Claremore. How Claremore came to be… Claremore got its beginnings when Chief Glahmo led his tribe of Osage Indians from Missouri in 1802. He soon established a fur trading post along the Verdigris River. The trading post sat atop a 25 acre mound which came to be known as Clermont, a French word meaning “clear mountain.” Over time, traders and Indians alike began to refer to the Chief as “Chief Clermont.”When the area became part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, it was designated as Indian Territory. Before long, the Cherokee tribe was forced from their eastern homes along the infamous “Trail of Tears” and was given title to the land, including Clermont Mound. The Osage Indians were removed to a reservation, which would later be called Osage County. A settlement made up primarily of Cherokee Indians was established on Clermont Mound beginning with a general store, a blacksmith shop and a school. In 1874 the post office was established with the intention of naming the town after Chief Clermont. However, due to a clerical error, the name was listed as Claremore, and so it was. The Cherokees prospered, organized constitutional governments, published newspapers, and established an extensive educational system. In 1889, when the U.S. Government began to open up unassigned lands in Indian Territory to the white men, they flooded the territory and soon took control of Claremore. By the turn of the century, Claremore was larger than Tulsa.In 1903, a test oil well was drilled in Claremore, but instead of finding oil, the drillers discovered a large flow of artesian mineral water. Before long radium bath houses became the rage in Claremore. In 1907, Rogers County was created from the Cherokee Nation and was named for Clement V. Rogers, the father of Will Rogers, and a member of the Constitutional Convention.When Route 66 came through the city, it was already well established, and quickly built motor courts, service stations and restaurants along the highway to service the many travelers of the road. Claremore is best known as the hometown of the Oklahoma’s favorite son, Will Rogers "The Cherokee Kid." Rogers was born nearby in a rough log cabin “halfway between Claremore and Oologah on November 4, 1879. He rose from a vaudeville career as a sideshow rope‑tricks artist to become one of the most popular humorists in America. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

There is nothing like homemade cinnamon rolls to give a person that feeling of soothing comfort - a big, warm, gooey, frosting dripping down, center of the cinnamon roll. None of the out-of-a-can or plain powdered sugar on top type but a fresh, warm, dough rolled by hand cinnamon roll to wrap you up and communicate appreciation from the sender to the receiver. Well, that is just what the Claremore CCTA did for ALL the teachers and staff, district-wide. A small but warm gesture to say, "We see you and all you are doing. We support you. We appreciate you." Our teachers' tummies and hearts were fuller this week. Thank you! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
🦇 Sometimes our ZAP Advisors go a little "batty" over ZAP. Mrs. Brace's ZAP group never knows what to expect when they show up for their ZAP meetings. Lesson: GOAL SETTING complete with an obstacle course. Why? Because when we set goals, we also have to navigate the obstacles that get in our way, we have to find credible resources to support us, we have to listen to others, we have to plan, we have to start over sometimes, and we can have fun while learning about these life principles that will contribute to a successful future. 🦇 Once we reach our goals, we get to celebrate. This time it was with "batty" brownies.
We want all students to learn, and the best way to make that happen is to protect their electronic devices. Here are some reminders on how to protect your device. If you have any issues with your device, contact your school of record immediately to begin the repair claim process. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
