Pre-K practices reading response with Be You, by Peter Reynolds. This book is a part of a reading exchange program, You've Been Book'd, implemented by our librarian, Mrs. Troyer. Each classroom, Pre-K through 2nd grade was given a bag with up to two books in it. Teachers were instructed to read the books to their class and then swap bags with another classroom. This way, students across the building are exposed to even more amazing books! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

"I feel to truly make a difference in a child’s life, we need to love what we are teaching. It took a year of teaching art before I experienced the explosion of creativity. It’s true! After consistently engaging in art for about a year, I found my ability to build things and my own critical thinking skills were pushed to a whole new level. I would find myself overwhelmed with things I could build and how I could achieve my goal. It built my confidence and creating in my own world continues to enhance my life in so many ways. This personal experience is what led me to LOVE sharing the creative process with my students. Engaging in art is so powerful! It helps students to develop their own personal voice and ways to talk about their art with their peers. I observe this in the classroom every day. I also love how art affects our mood in a positive way, making us happier, calmer, or even inspired to do something else. I know kids love art because before they even make it to art they are asking me every where they see me, whether it’s in the halls, cafeteria, at the grocery store, or when I am on duty, “What are we doing in art this week”? They simply can not wait until class. Teaching art has added purpose and meaning to my life and I am so grateful that being Claremont’s art teacher is part of my journey as an educator." #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #YOUTHINARTMONTH

JOIN OUR TEAM! Be the first smile our students see in the morning and the last smile they see as they head home. CPS is hiring bus drivers! We are looking for people who love kids, who value an opportunity to positively influence the lives of our students, and see these young people as precious cargo. 🚌District bus drivers work either four or five-hour routes per day. In the past, driving positions have proven to be a good fit for many retirees looking to make extra money while keeping them active in the community. In addition, it is a good income source for college students or parents looking for extra money. Drivers come from diverse backgrounds, but they have one common thread; they enjoy being around and helping the kids. 🚌 If you are interested in becoming a Claremore Public School bus driver, please contact Jennifer Hayes, CPS Transportation Director, for additional details. The job does require a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) with school and passenger endorsements. The school district will reimburse these costs and starting pay begins at $15 per hour.

Research shows that routines are just as important for children as they are for adults. Just like adults, children feel more confident and secure when their daily activities are predictable and familiar. A consistent daily schedule and step-by-step routines give children a predictable day. For this #wellnesswednesday, we want to share some tips to ease back into a school routine. Let's make this last 9 weeks count! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
