Please Help Broken Arrow Get More Funding For Our Students!

One parent/guardian from each household must complete, electronically sign, and submit through their PowerSchool account the new Household Economic Survey by September 15, 2021. This short survey asks 2 questions: the total number of people in the household and the household's total annual income. The survey is confidential. Its submission is required for the district to receive its full federal and state funding.The district also will use this survey to determine a family's eligibility for waivers of school fees. Families will find instructions and more information at www.usd497.org/HouseholdEconomicSurvey.

Kinder Families Only

Our Ages and Stages Questionnaires are due on September 20th! If you have not already, please complete the surveys below. These surveys help your child's teacher better know strengths and needs, but also help Kansas determine where to provide additional funding for early education in communities that need it most!

Job Openings at BA!

Help spread the word! Broken Arrow is looking for caring adults to work in our building! We are hiring for a part-time library aide and part-time paraprofessional position, paraprofessional positions (full-time), and a non-instructional monitor to help supervise during lunch (2-3 hours per day). Please apply at www.usd497.org under the "Apply" tab. These positions follow student schedules for the most part and would be great family-friendly positions for those who want to be connected to our school!

Help Us Celebrate Our Amazing Staff!

We have a tradition at Broken Arrow called Broken Arrow Bravos, where staff members can submit a celebration of something a staff member did during the week that impacted them or students positively during the week. Our Building Leadership Team wanted to open that opportunity up to families as well! This will be a regular feature here on the Friday Flyer!
