Mrs. Collins's class put together a game of Duck Duck Goose all on their own and played so well together. They encouraged and cheered each other on throughout the game. Each time someone wanted to join in, they all patiently made room and included everyone. It started with just a few students, and eventually, the entire class joined in! Thank you for modeling our life principles, Mrs. Collins's class. Keep up the good work! ❤ #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Ms. Frost's students are digging into their STEM bins during science time! STEM education means educating students in four specific disciplines, namely, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. These STEM bins help to encourage students to create, invent, and problem solve. In the pictures below you will see a conveyor belt, an excellent tower, and a car, all made with the materials in the bins! Great job, 5th grade! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #STEM

Westside's Second Grade had some very special visitors! The Tulsa Zoo's animal ambassadors Peeper and Gracie came to teach our students all about owls! This visit was extra special considering a Westside Alum got to come back and teach in the room that was once her classroom! Thank you Sarah Harren-Varnell for coming with your feathered friends and doing an amazing job! She made a big impression on our students and was a fabulous example of all the things they can achieve! Westside is proud to have you as one of our own! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #TulsaZooVisit

This Friday Funny comes out of Ms. Johnson's 2nd-grade classroom. The whole class was having a down day. Ms. Johnson decided to play some blues music and allow them to express themselves! Some of their responses are priceless! "I don't like that it's not the weekend" "I hate meatballs" "I don't like how cupcakes are so sweet" "I don't like how pencils are so sharp" "I hate that stores are not selling sausage corndogs" Ms. Johnson herself had some blues because Starbucks is out of their ham and cheese croissants! Thank you for allowing them to express themselves, making it a teaching moment, and sharing with us! ❤ #CPSZEBRASTRIPES

It is Hero Wednesday again! To try out something new, we are going to tell you the story behind how these heroes made it on the wall! One student cleaned the floor by the bathroom without being asked. Another student used honesty to help solve a problem. For our last spotlight, the student displayed honesty and integrity by returning money they found to its rightful owner! Great job, friends! "All of us start from zero. We take the right decision and become a hero."-Govinda #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #HEROWALLWEDNESDAY
