Future Friday🏫🎓 $2 , 4 5 5 , 4 1 0 That is the amount of scholarships the Class of 2024 reported receiving this year. Fifteen CPS Seniors received $1,000 each from the Bluejacket Scholarship Fund, totaling 15 scholarships and a $15,000 investment. Pictured representing their college of choice is: 🔴 Rogers State University: Layne Rice & Jayce Rice 🔴 Oklahoma State University: Payton Roberts, Madison Ferrel, Mason Erstad & Zachary Hinds 🔴 Baylor University: Andrew Mason 🔴 University of Oklahoma: Meredith Andrews, Mason Pixley, Jared Young & Gracie Roberts 🔴University of Arkansas: David Ryals & Linden Humphrey 🔴University of Tulsa: Abbey Henderickson & Gannon Riggs 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. 2007 Sam and Hazel Lessley contributed substantially to the Bluejacket Scholarship endowment. The Bluejackets directed the Claremore Public Schools Foundation to award scholarships to students "with proven records of academic achievement." #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #FutureFriday

Claremore High School Bio-Med Innovations class deep dived into hands-on learning with the dissection of pigs. Through this experience, students gain invaluable insights into anatomy, physiology, and medical techniques. Guided by Mr. Riggs, they explore the intricate structures and functions of organs, fostering a deeper understanding of biological systems. This engaging activity not only enhances scientific knowledge but also cultivates critical thinking and teamwork skills essential for future healthcare professionals. 🦓👩🏻‍⚕️👨🏻‍⚕️🩺 #cpszebrapride

Students in Mrs. Rahn’s STEM class had to plan, design, build and test a lunar lander that carried a rover with a payload of an “Eggstronaut” all while staying within a budget. Each straw, plastic bottle or piece of tape had a cost. The winning team’s egg survived the drop and rolled the furthest while spending the least amount of money! They learned that engineers not only design but also stay within a budget!🥼🚀🦓 #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

The atmosphere and culture. You won’t find a better group of people! I didn’t get the opportunity to go to elementary school in the district, so returning to work at Roosa has been so fun and rewarding. I work with amazing people who are molding and shaping our mini zebras. I’m so grateful to play a small part in that. 💭What is one of your favorite memories from being a CPS student? As many people know, I had an emergency liver transplant during my senior year at CHS. My favorite memory was returning to school for the first time post-transplant and being greeted by all of the warm, friendly faces of my friends and teachers - some of which I had never even had in class. CPS surrounded my family and me during that time, and it is something I will forever cherish. 👩🏻‍🏫What was your favorite class or teacher? I plead the fifth because I’m Facebook friends with a lot of them now. :) ⭐What was trending when you graduated? Clothes, songs, movies, etc. Ugg boots, PINK yoga pants, soffe shorts, and the iconic Snooki hair bump. #cpszebrapride
