Thank you for your patience as our team continues to plan for the upcoming school year. Please know that the health and safety of our students and staff continue to remain our top priority. We know you have questions such as: ⬤ How will we safely and effectively return to in-classroom learning? ⬤ When will the school year start? How will the district mitigate risk? ⬤ What options do you have if you do not feel safe coming back to school in-person? Please know we are thoroughly working through these questions and many others. Our first "Fridays With Frazier" for the summer addresses some of those questions. Facebook :https://www.facebook.com/ClaremorePublicSchools Youtube: https://youtu.be/j0lC3xNJP78

Last week CPS distributed 1200 boxes of food in cooperation with RCB and Go Fresh. Obviously, this could not have been accomplished without the volunteers. Thank you to the 40 RCB & CPS employees that showed up to meet our families with a smile (even if you could not see it under the masks), who waved, packed the boxes into cars, and served our community. Thank you to the organizers from RCB, @Sara Moss, and @Tim Mason. We appreciate @Midtown Rental for donating the equipment and manpower to do the “heavy lifting.” As the event unfolded and adjustments were made, @Dale Preston dropped everything he was doing, showed up 2 hours earlier than expected, stayed until CPS maintenance was able to take over, and allowed us to continue to use his equipment the entire evening. It takes a village and we are blessed to have the heart of servanthood that unites Claremore. Mercy Chefs and Volunteers For Youth are currently managing local distribution sites. This week you can pick up boxes at the Expo Center on Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30-4 PM. THIS IS OPEN TO ALL OF OUR COMMUNITY. If you would like to volunteer, contact Amber Brassfield at [email protected] or 918.200.2938. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Teachers balanced parenting and teaching their own children while providing instruction to the 20, 30, 50, 90 students that depended on them every day. Parents served tirelessly on the front lines in healthcare, as first responders, on cleaning crews to ensure the mitigation of this virus.

Building a kite also hits a few math standards, including exploring and developing visual representations of growing geometric patterns. 🪁 Building kites also allows students to explore the engineering principles of building, testing, revising, and testing again!

At the end of the 19th century, "The Lady With the Lamp"— or as she is more widely known, Florence Nightingale — founded modern nursing. Thanks to her strict use of hand-washing and hygiene practices while caring for wounded soldiers in the Crimean War, Nightingale and her helpers reduced the death rate from 42% to 2% — ushering in nursing as we know it today. On May 6, we recognize the vital role nurses play in our lives by celebrating National Nurses Day. There is more than maintaining medical records and making sure immunizations are up-to-date.

In addition to the traditional commencement ceremony with its cap and gown and congratulatory handshakes, valedictorian speech (or speeches) and recognition of outstanding achievements, most communities also have baccalaureate ceremonies. Formally defined as a religious service to honor the graduating class, a more reflective event that focuses on students' personal growth and achievement. the Claremore Ministerial Alliance has hosted this event for years. This year is no different, the traditional Baccalaureate service will be this Sunday, May 3rd at 3 PM, but like most public events this year, it will be virtual. The community is invited to watch it on the Facebook pages or website of several local churches in our area.

Words have such power don’t they? Especially words fed to us as we are growing up. The first-grade teachers at Roosa are making sure their students still hear those encouraging words that help motivate them, help assure them, help grow them. They are sending a message of hope their students will remember for decades to come.

Our number one concern is your safety and wellbeing. Parents, we love and miss your children. Closing our buildings and canceling many of our year-end events leaves us broken-hearted. Since these restrictions have gone into place, we have been working on a plan to connect with students and families - to do what we do best - love and teach your children. I am so proud of the work our teachers and administrators have done over these past few weeks. I am proud to be a Zebra. With that said, tonight, we are releasing our Continuous Learning Model for all students beginning Monday, April 6th.

3.15.20 l 5:00 PM Again we are trying not to make long term decisions when information is changing rapidly and/or not available. We will attempt to give our families lead time on any postponements or cancellations, when possible. Based on the current level of community transmission, we are taking measures to be back in school on March 23. The status could change day-to-day. If the community transmission level rises, steps will be taken to become more restrictive. Community transmission levels are determined by the CDC based upon confirmed positive tests. As the testing process becomes more available and widely administered, the numbers will likely increase. The quantity and location of the concentrations of positive results determine transmission levels. These levels will be a factor in making our decisions. Therefore, decisions on events that are weeks or even months away cannot be determined at this time. We are attempting to mitigate this virus and do our part. Please reference the links provided below to the CDC to guide you and your family in your personal decisions. As things change, we will be timely with our communication and will use email, the Claremore Public Schools app, and our website to publish new developments with our plan. Thank you for your support and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Claremont Elementary has been putting on the Crayon Run for the past six years. "Claremont approached the foundation with the idea to improve the event by having it benefit all of CPS schools, including Claremont," Randa Fay, Claremont Principal. "It is such a successful yet labor intensive event. Having the foundation join forces to make this event bigger and better just makes sense.

Last week was National #FFAWeek. Many former FFA members can probably recite at least the 1st paragraph of the FFA Creed, maybe more. You know, "I believe in the future of agriculture...." The FFA Motto has always been Mr. Boyer's favorite, though. He explains that to him, it truly describes all of life. No matter what you do, those 12 simple words pretty well sum up what the joys & struggles of what life is all about. 🔵 Learning to Do 🔵 Doing to Learn 🔵 Earning to Live 🔵 Living to Serve. Many only see a select few individuals in the Blue & Gold, but for every student you see, two more are sitting in a classroom or at home, hopefully learning about agriculture. Let's not idolize one & forget about the other. Happy National FFA Week!! Enjoy the throwback picture of Mr. Boyer and little humor. Any FFA alums out there have a throwback photo of you in you Blue & Gold or at an FFA activity - please share it in the comments. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Claremore's technology program has been crazy busy, hosting a VEX tournament and a TSA conference these past two weeks. Last weekend there were 60 VEX teams, and this weekend over 400 students here to compete at the TSA Mini-Conference. Claremore students competed well at both events, but Mr. Isenbart is most proud of the #CPSZEBRAPRIDE they demonstrated. Students came in early and stayed late the past three weeks preparing to make the competitions a success. Students made trophies, printed judges' packets, set up fields, helped organize and run both competitions. The community support was unbelievable as well. Parents, advisors, teachers, former students, members of this community, as well as people from surrounding communities came to help—all a testament to the significant contributions the program and Mr. Isenbart have made in his tenure here. Thank you to everyone for all the hours, sacrifices, positive attitudes, and the support everyone has gives to the Claremore TSA and Robotics programs. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

The story about the girls' team was vague about the first year they played, but in 1820 they won more games than the boys did that year.

You've probably learned or heard about DNA, but have you ever seen it? As you may know, DNA is present in every cell of all plants and animals and determines all genetic traits of the individual organism. Mrs. Tietz's and Mrs. Simpson's class had guest speakers from the Noble Research Institute to help with this lesson. Each class extracted DNA from strawberries, put it in vials, and were able to take it home. Now that's a "berry" fun way to learn about DNA! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Dr. Jon Ramsey, Associate Professor of Agricultural Education at Oklahoma State University, spent some time at Claremore High School this week observing Ms. Jerryca Haller, student-teacher, teach her agriculture communications class. Students learned the six components of professional email correspondence. Ms. Haller comes to us via Imperial, California. When asked why she wanted to teach ag, she shared that she would like to have the same impact on today's students that her ag teachers had on her as a high school student. They helped her develop an appreciation for everything agriculture does, not only for her local community but also for the state and the nation. Jerryca would like to help her students in the same way by showing them the importance of agriculture since we all need to eat. Ms. Haller is paired with our seasoned AgEd teacher, Ms. Jessalyn Schrock. Ms. Schrock is in her seventh year at CHS. Among other successes, she is responsible for coaching two, state winning AgriScience Fair projects, a National 3-Star Chapter, and acquiring a Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education - Plant Science certification. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #teachag #nationalFFAWeek

Claremore High School's mission is to ensure high levels of learning in ALL areas and prepare ALL students with skills for success. It is our vision to encourage, empower, and educate ALL students to become lifelong learners and productive members of society. This week CHS science and social studies departments were provided a workday to meet together as a Professional Learning Community (PLC) and work on strategies to achieve our mission and vision. Teachers spent time planning pathways for the future, examining alignment to the ACT, discussing vertical alignment within their curriculum, and collaborating on how to use common formative assessment data to improve student learning. PLCs enable teachers to continually learn from one another via shared visioning and planning, as well as an in-depth critical examination of what does and doesn't work to enhance student achievement. This exercise was an opportunity to be intentional in bringing the content from the weekly meetings into a strategic department plan. The mathematics and English departments worked through the same process earlier this fall. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

When a student needs help, a teacher is there. One of our office aides was having trouble with his Algebra 1, and Mrs. Province was on her plan. She stopped when she saw him having trouble, sat with him, and helped him with his work. Mrs. Province is one of our 7th grade teachers. The student is an 8th grader, and not in her class. "Teachers do more than teach, and their impact extends far beyond the classroom. As a teacher, you are more than just an educator: you are a mentor, a confidant and a friend. One of the most common reasons to become a teacher is to make a difference in the lives of as many students as you can." - Taylor Mali, a renowned poet, education advocate and former teacher. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

"I've learned a lot from mentors who were instrumental in shaping me, and I want to share what I've learned." — Herbie Hancock At Roosa Mrs. Page's 1st grade class and Mrs. Kropp's 5th grade class get together each week for "book buddies." Before the break, they took time for an art project and made poinsettias. These opportunities help the younger students learn and practice new skills but also give the older students a chance to be leaders, to be mentors, to share what they have learned. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

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"!!

Living in different regions affect the lives of the people who lived there. The climate, physical surroundings, and natural resources all changed the way they lived. These are significant factors that affected the Native Americans who lived by an ocean or in the Plains. Do the Southwestern tribes have the same climate as the Eastern Woodlands tribes? Would they have the same resources? Wear the same things? Eat the same foods?

CHS took 300 10th graders to the Sophomore Showcase this fall to explore the career programs NTC offers in preparation for their junior year. Students were able to pick three programs to tour at the Pryor Campus, allowing more 1:1 time and the opportunity for some hands-on experience with the tools, projects, and equipment. At the Claremore campus, students toured all six of their full-time programs. This event is a strategic opportunity in the ICAP process, creating more evident benefits for both students and schools. CPS is approaching and delivering career development in our schools to help students and their families become more informed consumers of the education and training required to meet their personal goals. Students will continue this process throughout high school. However, the exposure to these programs allows these students an intimate look into several career options made possible through career-tech training while in high school &/or after high school. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

The selfless act of serving others is a way to bring more joy into the world. It is a method with which to build amazing, passionate cultures within a business, within a school, within a community, within a family, within a team. Too often we can get caught up in the ideals of prestige or winning and forget that the main reason anyone is successful is because of what they have done for others. "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." ― Ralph Waldo Emerson. Claremore athletics wants to be a winning program but more importantly, we want to build citizens that win by serving others. This week the CHS baseball and softball players held a canned food drive to help stock the Rogers County Sheriff's Dept. Food Pantry. The pantry is open to anyone 24/7.

Can a persimmon seed predict our winter weather? Mrs. Westfall's class at Will Rogers Junior High decided to test this theory. According to folklore, if you crack open a persimmon seed and look at the shape inside, it can forecast the winter weather. If it's fork shape, winter will be mild. If the seed is spoon-shaped, there will be lots of snow, and if it's knife shape, the winter will be bitterly cold that cuts like a knife. So what do this year's seeds say about the upcoming winter? The class looked at the differences between male and female pine cones. They also cracked open persimmon seeds and found spoon shapes in all the seeds. It looks like we will be getting lots of snow according to our seed investigation! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

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

Students in Mrs. Smith's 7th Grade Geography class at WRJH, are investigating the disappearance of the Aral Sea in Central Asia by analyzing data from text, maps, graphs, photographs, and charts. When students finish this project they will understand that water diverted for irrigation or other purposes can have a direct impact on the environment, including environments that cross international boundaries. In the case of the Aral Sea, beginning in 1954, the Soviet Union irrigated the rivers supplying the sea with water in order to bring water to their cotton crops in the Kara Kum Desert.

Mr. Cummings, CHS History Teacher, is currently planning an Educational Travel Experience to Boston and New York City for 2021. Memories of educational school trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, primarily because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is mainly to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved. The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better. These trips help students to become more engaged in the learning process. They also help students grow their socialization skills as they are taken into new environments giving them opportunities to be respectful of the locations and cultures they visit. Also, a student's curiosity is on high alert when they are in new places experiencing new things, which helps with the retention of the information for a more extended period. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Inquiry-based learning is vital to preparing our students for their future careers. Mrs. Kellie Dixon's science class at WRJH is completing a lab testing and checking for density. There is more to it than "Does it float?" Knowing the density of a material helps determine the mass and volume, all of which are vital measurements in all industries. Right here in NEOK we have several industries that revolve around this scientific principle, GRDA, McClellan-Kerr Navigation System, and Hydrohoist, to name a few. These businesses employ hundreds of our citizens and maybe one of these students in a few years. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Cox's Geography class at WRJH made a human timeline today while studying the Russian Revolution. Using a human timeline explores the 'thinking for yourself' approach to timelines. Students actively involved in engaging their creativity through props, pictures, costumes, which makes this strong visual activity memorable. 'Memorability' is vital - if students don't remember an activity, they can't re-use what they've covered. The most productive timeline work involves children being physically and mentally engaged. It allows students to use a variety of learning styles to learn dates, places, and events in history. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Ritter's 5th-grade science class at, Catalayah, makes some waves this week. What a fun way to learn the beginning principles of how sound waves have a wavelength. Using jump ropes, students could create a high pitch and low pitch sound wave, allowing them to see, hear, and feel this concept come to life. Waves are used for many reasons in our society: sonar, reading glasses, light bulbs, stereo equipment, and lasers all rely on either sound or light waves. For engineers to develop new (and already used) technology, they must understand how light and sound waves work and how to use them in new devices. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

The money will help 30 students purchase books at the upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. These ladies have been blessing our students for several years. Their generosity and commitment to encouraging young readers is inspirational. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
