Staff Spotlight - Mrs. LaValley - I am newly married to my husband, JD! I am a Roosa alumnus and graduated from CHS. One of the best parts of being a teacher is not what I teach them, but what they teach me every single day. Our students are the most resilient, kind, and patient children I know. Seeing their faces light up with joy when they finally grasp a concept they have been working on is the most amazing feeling. #ROOSASTAFFSPOTLIGHT #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

This year has been filled with chatter of how hard 2020 has been. And, that is undoubtedly true. But, as we observe Thanksgiving today, let's remember there have been moments of wonder, beauty, and celebration in 2020 as well. We have met new people and learned new skills. We experienced new ways of seeing the world, impacting lives, and helping others. Let's not forget the cherished time spent with family. And, maybe, just maybe, these tough times have allowed us the sacred opportunity of growing. One of the most beautiful things is how people have come together to support each other. Drive-by birthday parties, companies sharing resources for free or at discounts to help educators do great work even though they were facing the unknown. Parents sending extra hand sanitizer, tissues, and gift cards to show their support and love for teachers. Restaurants feeding first responders and healthcare workers. These moments have been inspiring. Yes, there have been some gruesome moments in our world this year, but there are moments that are worth holding onto with a very tight grip. Let's be great curators of the moments deserving our attention. We may not be sitting around the table together, but we do hold each other in our hearts and consider each of you a blessing in our lives. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Before Thanksgiving Break the 4th grade students dressed up for their Thanksgiving Lunch. They wore the latest fashion in Pilgrim wear and Native American fashion fitting to the 1600's. Not to leave out the fashion of 2020, face masks were included with all the costumes. #THANSKGIVING2020 #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Claremore Public Schools is continually committed to developing an atmosphere of trust among parents and the community in our ability to provide not only a positive and enriching educational experience but a safe place for students to thrive. That is why we have partnered with @FamilyZoneUSA, a leading provider of cyber safety products and education, to ensure your kids are cyber safe while at school. Claremore Public Schools is already using Family Zone to block inappropriate content and to identify red flag search terms from students.

It is important that caregivers monitor students when they are on their devices. As a parent or caregiver of our school district, you receive free access to the Family Zone Cyber Safety Hub, which includes articles, videos, courses, and more to help monitor and educate on various cyber threats, apps, etc. This week's #TechTipTuesday is access to this free service.

Meet Mr. Burke in the Roosa Staff Spotlight. "I love helping people, especially children. One of the most important educators in my life has been my pastor, who also happens to be my dad. I love to read. I am a compulsive re-reader. If I find a really amazing book, I have a hard time walking away from it." -- Mr. Burke #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Making turkeys at home, boring... Not on Distance Learning Friday! Look what the students at Roosa Elementary did on their Virtual Friday in Art class! This Distance Learning lesson for Art was based on the book "The Very Stuffed Turkey" by Katharine Kenah and illustrated by Binny Talib. The lesson was to create a one of a kind turkey based on the message in the book that not every member of a family looks the same. The students were asked to create their one of a kind turkey by drawing, painting, sculpting, using collage or any mixed media they had around their house. They were super creative and used supplies found both inside and outside. Turkeys shown were created by Isaac Higgins, Asher Spahr, Lilly Weeks and Adalynn Gilbert-Davis #ARTISFUN #DISTANCELEARNINGFRIDAY #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Meet Bethany Doerksen-Klopp, Ph.D. Certified School Psychologist Dr. DK here! I hold a doctorate from OSU in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in School Psychology. My husband, Dustin, and I were high school sweethearts and have been married for 12 years. We have two human hooligans (8 months old and 3 years old) and two fur babies. This is my 6th year working with the amazing staff and students at Roosa Elementary and Will Rogers Junior High School. Now that I've been here a few years, I love that I've gotten to see my students grow and develop as they graduate to junior high! If you visit my office, you'll see the quote, "we can't control the winds, but we can adjust our sails," decorating my wall. For a Type A control freak like me, it's a great reminder that the only things we actually have control over in life are our own thoughts, words, and actions. There will always be some things we can control and some things we cannot. Staying focused on what we can control will help relieve stress and anxiety before it gets too overwhelming. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #SPAW2020 #WellnessWednesday
