CHS NJROTC Commander named Rotary Star When Murry Estabrook retired from his active- duty assignment as an officer in the Navy of the United States he took his commitment to service with him. His record of “service above self”, the motto of Rotary International, made him the obvious choice to be recognized by the Claremore Reveille Rotary Club as the first recipient of the club’s “YOU are a Rotary Star Award.” Read more - https://www.claremore.k12.ok.us/article/415737

Competition + Mistakes = Active & Engaged Learning Mrs. Stout's geography students compare and contrast the different government systems in Africa by creating a collaborative Venn diagram. They took turns placing items on the diagram and then worked together to correct their mistakes. All of the classes completed their Venn diagram, but her 6th hour did it in only 4.5 minutes. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

THEIR FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT Cancer may feel like someone else's fight if you have not experienced it in your own life. But CHS has decided THEIR FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT! Over the past four years, the ZUAC (Zebras United Against Cancer) Committee has helped raise over 9K to help our ZEBRA family members fighting this disease directly. We have supported students & employees with Lymphoma, Prostate Cancer, Leukemia, Ewings Sarcoma, Breast Cancer, & Pancreatic Cancer in our elementary schools, our junior high, and our high school. We have experienced this disease as a family district-wide. This is why our theme this year is "THEIR FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT" because family takes care of family. Although all our clubs contribute to the fundraising, the ZUAC t-shirt sales are the largest part of our efforts. We hope you will be a part of showing our #CPSZEBRPRIDE and giving hope to our ZEBRA family members.

It's READ ACROSS AMERICAN WEEK Raising Readers: What Parents Can Do Learning to read takes practice. Loving to read takes enthusiasm. Read with your child often and create a sense of enjoyment, wonder, and a passion for reading. 1. Read together every day. You can read the morning news at breakfast, share a story after supper, or cuddle up for a book at bedtime. A daily reading routine is something everyone can look forward to. 2. Talk and build vocabulary. Interesting conversations build vocabulary, language skills, and knowledge about the world. Talk is a child’s best source of exposure to new words and ideas. 3. Model reading. Kids want to do what the grownups do. Make sure your kids get to see you reading and hear you talk about it. 4. Point out print. Read and talk about the words you see in the world around you. There’s lots to read—signs, recipes, cereal boxes, instruction manuals, bus schedules, news, maps, and menus. 5. Visit the library. Take advantage of all the books, materials, story times, programs, and resources your local library has to offer. 6. Create a reading-rich home. Find books at the bookstore or yard sales. Provide a special shelf or basket for kids to keep their own books and one for library books. Make sure there are quiet, comfortable places to read. 7. Encourage your child’s reading. Praise the efforts of a soon-to-be or beginning reader. Make sure schedules of older readers include time for reading for pleasure. 8. Keep books handy. Stash books in your bag to read aloud when you travel or have to wait at restaurants or for appointments. Or keep eBooks on your phone. 9. Start reading traditions. Beyond bedtime stories, consider a special birthday book, holiday favorites, or a regular family read aloud night. 10. Let kids choose books. Offer titles that explore your child’s interests, expand horizons, and offer exposure to different kinds of writing. Show them there are books where they can see themselves and books where they can see the worlds of others. 11. Make everyone comfortable. Find a spot to read together where you are both comfortable. Sometimes kids have to move around to be comfortable. 12. Be an active reader. Use expressive voices for characters, make sound effects, and point things out in the text and illustrations when you read aloud. 13. Discuss what you read. Give your child enough time to absorb the story and look at the pictures as you read. Think aloud about what you are reading and looking at and encourage your child to do the same. 14. Ask questions when you read. Ask your child to guess what comes next. Ask open-ended questions that help them relate to characters or events in the book. Let your child get involved and ask questions too–interruptions are okay! 15. Encourage re-reading. Repetition helps kids learn. Re-reading favorite books and poems helps kids make meaningful connections between themselves and books. 16. Connect reading and writing. Write your own reading material, like a story about your life, a story featuring your kids, or a story kids make up. 17. Make media matter. Connect kids with appropriate technology—videos, apps, or games that help them learn new words and interesting things about the world. 18. Get help. If you have concerns about your child’s language development, hearing, or vision, see your child’s pediatrician as soon as possible. 19. Make reading an experience. Link life experiences with books, like a trip to the zoo and books about animals, or planting a garden and reading The Ugly Vegetables by Grace Lin. 20. Have fun. Your idea of fun may differ from your child’s, so appreciate your child’s special joy for learning new things. Try different approaches, such as having them read to you or acting out a favorite story. Even something as simple as a story time outside can make reading together livelier and more memorable for you and your child.

It's READ ACROSS AMERICA THIS WEEK and PreK/K Enrollment next week so we thought we'd share some toddler tips because it's never to early to start reading to your kids to prepare them for school. 𝒯𝒾𝓅𝓈 𝒻𝘰𝓇 𝑅𝑒𝒶𝒹𝒾𝓃𝑔 𝓉𝘰 𝐼𝓃𝒻𝒶𝓃𝓉𝓈 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝒯𝘰𝒹𝒹𝓁𝑒𝓇𝓈 It’s never too soon to start reading to your children! If your child learns early to associate reading with pleasure, they are more likely to enjoy reading on their own when they are older. Try these successful reading tips for reading to infants and toddlers: 📚 Snuggle with your child with her favorite blanket or toys as you read. 📚 Read with expression using different voices for different characters. 📚 Emphasize rhythms and rhymes in stories. Give your toddler opportunities to repeat rhyming phrases. 📚 Use pictures to build vocabulary by varying objects and their colors. 📚 Use pictures to develop speaking vocabulary by talking about what is shown. 📚 Encourage your child to repeat what you say or comment on it. Encourage your child to ask questions. Provide models of interesting questions and examples of possible answers. “I wonder what is going to happen next? I think the rabbit will get lost because he is not paying attention to where he is going. What do you think?” 📚 Look for books that are about things that interest your toddler. For example, does your child like cars, insects, or animals? 📚 Make reading a habit for bedtime, after lunch, or after naptime. 📚 Give your child a chance to choose his own books. If your toddler chooses a book that is too long to hold his attention, read some and skip some, discussing the pictures and how they relate to the story. 📚 Read stories again and again. Your toddler enjoys repetition and it helps him become familiar with the way stories are organized. Resource: National Education Association, Published: 01/28/2021 #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
