There are so many foundational skills to reinforce when playing Candyland - colors, shapes, and counting are a few of them. But it is also full of character lessons - taking turns, patience, being a gracious winner, a supportive loser, and celebrating others' successes. Character counts! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Howell's 2nd grade students at Claremont are learning about erosion during their land and water forms unit! Students make hypotheses and investigate the causes of canyons. In the activity Cornmeal Canyons, students create a model landform using cornmeal. Then they drip water over this “land” to observe how water can change its shape and understand how, over long periods of time, canyons can be formed through a similar process. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Chief Jasper shared, "We will get them next year!!" ⚓Along with the team award, Jordan P., an 8th grader member, won the 2nd place Overall Female medal. She competed against high school cadets. Although an award was not given for endurance, Chief wanted to recognize Erin O for competing in all five events. ⚓CPS Navy Junior ROTC program is designed to "Help Today's Youth Meet Life's Challenges." Our program mission is to instill in students the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment.

🌟🌟 𝕊𝕦𝕡𝕡𝕠𝕣𝕥 𝕊𝕥𝕒𝕗𝕗 𝕊𝕡𝕠𝕥𝕝𝕚𝕘𝕙𝕥 - 𝕄𝕣𝕤. 𝕃𝕠𝕣𝕖𝕥𝕥𝕒 𝕎𝕖𝕓𝕤𝕥𝕖𝕣 🌟🌟 Help us celebrate 41 years of serving our community - 41 years of being a Zebra! 🌟 Mrs. Loretta Webster, a humble woman who will tell you she is simply someone who continues to work hard and help her community, has, in reality, had an extraordinary impact on our school. Her commitment has spanned over two decades: 41 years of helpfulness, hard work, dedication, and commitment to our zebra family. Ms. Webster began her career with Claremore Public Schools in August of 1980 as an Aide in the first multi-handicap classroom in the district. Endearingly, she told us she misses those kids and remembers her time with them fondly. In addition to her teaching duties, she spent her summers doing any task the Superintendent asked of her: mowed the lawn, painted, cleaned buses, ect. It didn’t matter how dirty or difficult, she would do any task to help our school. This drive and selflessness allowed her to advance in various areas. After five years in the classroom, she moved to the Special Services office as a Psychometric Aide administering achievement tests. She now serves as the district Encumbrance Clerk and has been in the position for 31 years. 🌟In the past 41 years, she has served four Superintendents. Although she has fond memories of each of them, she said she has never seen such steadfast accomplishes as witnessed under Mr. Frazier’s direction. She also states how she feels like a proud mom, saying that, “He’s creating a legacy.” 🌟For someone who has been a Zebra for 41 years, pride was the one word to describe her experience. Through the seasons, “It’s always been my family.” 🌟Not only does she take pride in her career but also in her family, which consists of her two children, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Her two loves came together when her children and one grandson graduated from CPS. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

#CPSTechTipTuesday will demonstrate how to convert an Adobe PDF document to an editable Microsoft Word document. PDF documents are great for sending files to individuals and keeping the formatting consistent. However, a downfall is that you cannot edit the file. Using Microsoft Word, you can open a PDF document and edit it as needed. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE ▶ https://youtu.be/-AH6yWXx6oI SPANISH/English instructions: https://5il.co/ryg7
