Today's Soccer games against Tulsa Hale have been postponed due to pending weather. They are rescheduled for Tuesday, April 27th at 5 and 7:00.
Today is not the only day we celebrate the crucial, meaningful, and essential role our paraprofessionals play in our students' education. They are chaos coordinators, individualized instructors, hope builders, and forever friends. Mrs. Lemons told us this about Judy Snow who had been with CPS for 20 years. “She started as a para for me over 20 years ago and we've been in the same school ever since. She now teaches the SpEd Department's Computer App's Tech Now program. Judy is a blessing in any classroom. She has always instinctively known what needs to be done in a classroom and the approach to the student which will help them be successful.” Mrs. Snow only one of the many paras that help us work toward our goals for all our students 🎯 Raise student achievement 🎯 Close the achievement gap and provide educational equity 🎯 Ensure a safe educational environment Give a shoutout to a para you know in the comments. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
