Where else would a teacher want to be on her birthday but with her students in that infamous Oklahoma heat? Ms. @Jesslyn Schrock left out early heading to OKC with the CHS FFA officer team for their annual leadership retreat. Expecting to improve collaboration, build trust, and energize the team she planned an original retreat at the RIVERSPORT Adventure Park in the Boathouse District. The morning on the water in rafts geared toward helping the FFA team work together more effectively, which included several races and a little tug of war. This experience inspired their creativity so, over lunch, the group collaborated on some long-range planning for the chapter. Build communication and work together with your group towards a common goal as you complete Although there is no "i" in "team," leaders need to be self-aware and personally challenged to have a growth mindset. A five-story ropes course helped them face their fears and engaged their adventurous nature. A couple of the officers embraced the unknown and tackled rumble jump. The leadership lessons all cumulated as they faced the Class 4 white water rapids. "While we all ended up soaked, it was an excellent personal and professional leadership experience. As a bonus... nobody fell out of the raft," she said with a grin. Happy Belated Birthday Ms. Schrock! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Coaches Outreach believes marriages for coaching couples deserve extra attention! Each summer, they host unique, memorable weekends for over 300 coaches’ and their spouses. Hosting marriage retreats for coaches and their spouses for more than 25 years; the Coaches Outreach retreats are designed to recharge marriages from coaching pressures designed just for coaching couples. Head football coach, Jarret Hurt and his wife LaRonna, and Offensive Coordinator Brian Key and his wife Melanie not only attended but were small group leaders this year. The Hurts have been attending for 20 years and a small group leader for 15. The Keys have been attending for seven years; this was their first year as a small group leader. What they do in the halls and on the field matter but what they do at home matters most. Key said, “We go so we can relax and focus on our marriage knowing we have a long hard football season ahead of us.” Coaches make a difference in broken lives, so Coaches Outreach partners with them to help make their impact even more powerful. A typical high school football coach will impact thousands of kids during their career. Billy Graham has said, “One coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in their lifetime.” Coaches see what they do as a calling, more than a job. Coaches Outreach wants to help them as they are on this mission - strategically placed in schools to minister to kids in a way that few can. Key and Hurt believe this time of renewal, relaxation, and restoration gives them the connection with their spouses that help them be better coaches, better mentors, better role-models. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #CPSSTAFFSUMMERSCHOOL
Kaitlyn Pinkerton, our very own Miss Junior Cherokee, spent a week this summer at the University of Michigan for College Horizons. An intensive college prep course for the top 100 native students/scholars in the US. College Horizons is a pre-college program for Native American high school sophomores and juniors. Each summer, students work with college counselors and college admissions officers in a five-day "crash course." The individualized program helps students select colleges suitable for them to apply to, get admitted to, and receive adequate financial aid. Students research their top 10 schools; complete college essays, resumes, the Common Application, and the preliminary FAFSA; receive interviewing skills and test-taking strategies (on the ACT and SAT) and financial aid/scholarship information. What a prime opportunity to show your #CPSZEBRAPRIDE with other Cherokee from across the states.
Chris Henderson named Oklahoma Coaches Association Region 3 Junior High Coach of the Year. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
