Twas the Night Before Christmas For Teachers - By Joyce Luke 'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the school Not a pupil was silent, no matter what rule. The children were busy with paper and paste; The mess that they made with it couldn't be faced. The teacher half frantic and almost in tears, Had just settled down to work with her dears, When out in the hall there arose such a clatter up sprang the kids to see what was the matter! Away to the door they all flew like a flash; The one who was leading went down with a crash. Then what to their wondering eyes did appear But a green Christmas tree! (To decorate I fear!) When the teacher saw this, she almost grew sick. She knew in a moment it must be Old Nick! She ran to the door (all her efforts were vain) But she shouted, and stamped, and she called them by name; "Now Tommy! Now Sandy, Now Judy and Harry! Stop Billy! Stop Robert! Stop Donny and Sherry! Now get to your places get away from the hall Now get away! Get away! Get away all! As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly The pupils, pell mell, started scurrying by. They ran to the blackboard and skipped down the aisle; Their faces were shining and each had a smile. First came a basket of popcorn to string Then came the Christmas tree (menacing thing). As the tree was brought in there arose a great shout; The pupils were merrily romping about. The state they were in could lead to a riot; The teacher was sure, if allowed, they would try it. Her nerves how they jangled! Her temples were throbbing! The rush of her breath sounded almost like sobbing! The lines of her face were as fixed as a mask; It was plain that she didn't feel up to her task. The look in her eye would have tamed a wild steer, But the children ignored it; they did every year. A tear from her eye and a shake of her head Soon led me to think that she wished she were dead. She spoke not a word but went straight to her work, Strung all the popcorn which broke with a jerk. But at last it was finished and placed on the tree; Then came the bell and the children were free. Their shrill little voices soon faded away And peace was restored at the end of the day. As she looked at the Christmas tree glistening and tall, She smiled as she whispered, "Merry Christmas to All"!!

We know that being present is important for your child’s learning progress. What can you do to help them be at school every day? • Set a regular bedtime and morning routine. • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before. • Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home. • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning. • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent. • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

A taste of youthful leadership is what Miss Reece Castle provided Claremont Elementary in her reign as the principal for the day. I eagerly stepped aside and let her take lead. It was a fabulous day! Staff appreciated the sweet treat delivery. I'm sure this standard will become a more common expectation!

Professional teachers are made in the preparation; in the day in and day out of their discipline. They are made as they execute their training in the trenches and on the grand stage. They are made in the quite (okay, it's never really quiet) and in the noisy hallways and classrooms of their schools. They are made in the heart of a person - a person that chooses excellence, chooses compassion, chooses to invest in others, chooses to love. Claremore Public Schools is overflowing with #CPSZEBRAPRIDE for the professional teacher Mrs. Michelle Rahn is.

Several Claremore Public School Teachers attended #STAFFSUMMERSCHOOL at the Port of Catoosa's Career Highway event. Located at the head of navigation for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System in Northeast Oklahoma, it is one of the largest, most inland river-ports in the United States. Whether it's agricultural commodities, building materials, petroleum products or machinery, it can be shipped in and out of the Tulsa Port of Catoosa daily using a combination of barge, rail and truck. Seventy companies are located within the 2,000-acre industrial park at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa. "The story of the Port of Catoosa and Former Governor Kerr is a large part of our area's history and it is not well known! The knowledge I gained today is important and needs to be taught! Manufacturing is a large part of our livelihood in the US and skilled laborers are in high demand to work in these jobs!" - Mary Kropp, Roosa Elementary Teacher "I attended a Career Highway event today at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa and found the Oklahoma Agriculture magazine front & center when I walked in! This inland port plays an integral part in the agriculture industry here Oklahoma. While there, we also got to tour TC Transcontinental Packaging company. I had no idea so much detail and legality went into the packaging process. Bone-In products require different packing than standard cuts. Re-heating of products, presentation of goods and environmental impact are also just a few factors that go into packaging meat products. We also discussed the extreme lack of manufacturing workforce in Oklahoma. Many of these companies have the capability to expand but labor is the number one limiting factor. Most employees in this manufacturing sector start at $18+/hour with benefits, yet they still have trouble finding qualified workers. By the way, I didn't see any employees with a cell phone out or earbuds in listening to music either. Show up on time, WORK HARD & pass a drug test!" - Matt Boyer, Agriculture Education Teacher / FFA Advisor There are several ways to pursue post-secondary education: college, military, career-tech, and apprenticeships. Because only 38% of all Oklahoma graduating seniors will earn a Bachelor's Degree, it's essential to consider the "other" options that will provide a necessary skill, not leave you with any debt, and will allow you to make good money and have a good life. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Six of our CPS elementary students attended the TOSS (Teachers Of Successful Students) Conference hosted by the @Cherokee Nation. The conference focused on best practices, strategies, and resources for STEM Reading Integration. "Participating in these sessions are sparking a fresh excitement for integrating STEM into my reading class!" - Mary Kropp, Roosa Elementary. "I've always believed our most valuable resources are one another and the incredible professional development provided to us through TOSS just further validates that belief. We spent two powerful days learning what strategies and skills other Oklahoma educators are using in their classrooms to bolster their students' learning. We had the added benefit of staying together in the dorms at night, and had an absolute blast! We played cards, talked, laughed, and toured some old stomping grounds!!" - Vona Cardwell, Roosa Elementary "I was able to take several classes that will add to my classroom curriculum and my after-school Native American Club, but there were so many classes to take! We decided to divide and conquer - each evening, we all discussed and shared our insight and how it could be used to help all of our students. It was so wonderful to be able to collaborate with our fellow Claremore teachers and share our knowledge and experiences from this conference." - Jackie Boyd, Claremont Elementary In addition to STEM teachers were reminded how valuable the professional relationship with students affect learning. "I came away from the TOSS workshop with a neck up checkup when dealing with difficult students. First, make sure you are acting from your education and knowledge, not from your own emotions- keep your emotions in check. Second, evaluate your relationship with that child- make sure you have connected to this child or get someone who does have a relationship with them. Try to allow choices that don't jeopardize your relationship. Be consistent." - Glenda Bacon - Roosa Elementary These teachers enhanced their professional skills and provided the opportunity to make new friends/colleges, and to strengthen their bond with current friends/colleges. This bonding broadens the professional resources for our staff that extends beyond the walls of CPS. CPS teachers that attended were: Lynse Robinson, Mary Kropp, Glenda Bacon, and Vona Cardwell from Roosa Elementary; Jackie Boyd from Claremont Elementary; and Stacye Bacon Bacon from Will Rogers Elementary. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #STAFFSUMMERSCHOOL
