Message from Mr. Horne

Broken Arrow Families,

The final week of school has arrived during the most unusual and challenging of times.

I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of our families who engaged consistently in Continuous Learning. It most likely took balancing of numerous responsibilities to make it happen!

I am extremely proud of our teachers' efforts to keep learning moving for our students at Broken Arrow throughout this challenging time. They also had to balance all of it with being a parent, a spouse, and teaching their own children in many situations, which as you know definitely is a heavy load!

It is my hope that all of our Broken Arrow Families continue to stay healthy and stay strong throughout the summer. I am excited to launch the 2020-21 school year, one in which we all hope the learning occurs at the school!

Have a great summer!
Mr. Horne
