In today's world, navigating different cultural contexts has become an essential life skill. Mrs. Lewis' class at Catalayah learned about the Chinese New Year, which started Saturday. The students discovered 2020 is the Year of the Rat, the first animal in the Chinese zodiac calendar. Students read books and made red paper lanterns. Lanterns are a part of the traditional celebration, and the color red represents luck. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Seniors may act like they're too cool to make giant compound sentences with appropriate conjunctions and punctuation, but they secretly enjoy it. Mrs. Jill Andrews' class broke into small groups and had a competition to see who could make the longest compound-complex sentence with correct punctuation, of course. First place was 22 clauses. Second place was 21 clauses. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Before the break, Roosa 4th grade went to visit the residents at Brookfield. They made cards and sang songs. Claremore Public Schools encourage multi-generational engagement to enrich learning and to build community. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Cadwell took the Roosa STEAM Club spent the day an educational workshop put on by Brook Easton and her "EAST" students at Northeast Tech! The kids learned to create 3D images in AutoCAD, how to export and splice their designed images in Cura, and then print their images on the 3D printers. They participated in team-building activities, learned to shake hands properly, and got to play with drones and virtual reality goggles! They had a blast and learned so much! This experience is one they will always remember. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
