Westside Honor Choir had their first performance during the Homecoming pep rally today. These talented students led the school, guests, and high school Homecoming representatives in singing the Westside Spirit Song. Way to go, Honor Choir! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Today was our annual Homecoming pep rally! Westside students have prepared all week for the arrival of the high school Homecoming representatives. One of our GE Life Principles is, "we will cheer each other to success". Zebras of all sizes and age groups cheered one another on while showing amazing school spirit. They really know how to rally together! (More photos to come) https://youtu.be/UbuaZWL_2jM
Today the Tulsa Zoo came to visit second graders to teach about birds. These students learned so much new information and even got to meet Gracie! Gracie is an Eastern Screech Owl who showed off her neck turning abilities to fascinated students. What's your favorite creature at the Tulsa Zoo?
RSU Student Athletes have been helping Westside students in the gym. Students were able to join their fun volunteers by rotating in exercise stations. They were also able to climb the amazing rock wall! Thanks to our volunteers for all their help and support.
A typical custodian cleans a building. At Westside, we have a family of heroes! This amazing crew includes husband and wife duo, Thomas and Michelle, and their incredible daughter, Summer. They are often the first faces our students see each morning. They will always greet you with a smile all while sweeping and having a small Westie hugging them tightly. They mop up messes that no one dares to touch, listen to our stories, encourage all that come their way, and make our school SHINE! We are so grateful for our amazing custodial staff. If you happen to see them, please say hello and thank them. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Don't forget to show your Zebra Pride by dressing up next week for our Homecoming celebrations!
Congratulations to our incredible Pre-K teacher, Sayre Whitaker, on receiving funding of a Fast Track Grant through the Claremore Public Schools Foundation. "I am so excited that Pre-K received this grant! This grant is for a trip to the Pumpkin Patch in Adair, Oklahoma. Our Pre-K students will be participating in some Fall themed activities while socializing with their peers and parents. There is a hayride, a corn maze, and each student will get to take home their very own pumpkin! Our students are SO excited to participate in this and we are all so grateful to the CPSF for providing $168 in scholarships and transportation for this trip! Thank you for enriching the quality of education in our Claremore Public Schools!" -Sayre Whitaker #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
