This week during Read Across America, students are anxiously awaiting a visit from The Grinch, who is encouraging students to Drop Everything and Read! Kids are learning to appreciate those few minutes of uninterrupted reading time. Ask your child if they have had a visit from The Grinch yet! Hopefully he will make it to all classrooms by the end of the week! 📗❤️📗 #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Last week we celebrated the 100th day of school. We sorted, colored and stacked 100 items. The kids were able to show off their 100 days of school projects and some of them even dressed like they were 100 years old. Watch this cute video attached!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8ZgsKjqkf4 #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Claremore Zebras are #PUBLICSCHOOLPROUD! We are the 🩺💝 heartbeat of the community. In public schools, all children come first, all students have value, leadership matters, it preserves democracy, and changes lives. Our staff and parents use words like excellence, family, teachers who care, everyone, diversity, academics, athletics, extracurricular opportunities, whole child, educational options, innovation, accountability, social connection, etc., to describe their #CPSZEBRAPRIDE. Give us a 🏫 in the comments if you are a product of the public school. Feeling the love - feel free to share why you are #PublicSchoolProud of Claremore on our FB page. https://youtu.be/MUaKVnRjEfc Thank you to the site communications team members and student contributors: Chet Jenkins & Kolby Smith.

Remember, students may run a mile a day at home, but they must send their mileage to Mrs. Seidels email (firstname.lastname@example.org) DAILY, and include how far the student ran, how much time it took, and how the student measured the distance. Mrs. Seidel knows these last two weeks have been hard to get any running/walking accomplished, but we still have 3 weeks and anybody can win. Right now for students, the most miles run are 3.5.
