Broken Arrow Weekly Update

Looking Forward to the Week of April 10-14

Message from Mrs. Green

We had a FULL week at Broken Arrow with so much fabulous activities, learning and unique experiences.

Our 4th and 5th grade classes got to watch a dress rehearsal of the Billy Mills Middle School theater production on Wednesday. Our 5th grade students had a visit from the BMMS counselors to learn more about enrollment. Our STUCO students were able to enjoy a visit in our BA Library from Representative Christina Haswood. Hillcrest Elementary STUCO members also came over for the visit. Students were able to ask questions and learn about the role of State Representatives and more about the legislative process. On Wednesday we had a school wide assembly where we celebrated and recognized our FABULOUS para educators and introduced our new word of the month: COURAGE! Some of our 3rd graders went over to BMMS to ask questions of staff to add to their data collection project for math and then we ended the week with 1st grade and Ms. Hoy's class going on field trips! WOW!! What a week!! We are gearing up for another great week as our 3rd-5th grade students take their ELA State Assessments and all grades continue learning and growing.

We hope to see everyone at BINGO NIGHT on Thursday evening and don't forget about the PTA Meeting on Tuesday. See below for pictures and more details about upcoming information.

NO SCHOOL April 14 and 17

School will not be in session on Friday, April 14th for a teacher plan day. School will also not be in session on Monday, April 17th since we have not had any inclement weather days this school year. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend coming up.

It is important that students get a good night's rest and a healthy breakfast to make sure they are ready to show their best. We also do not want these tests to cause any additional stress to students. We are so proud of their growth this school year and all that they have learned and are excited for them to show what they know. If your student is struggling with anxious feelings around this topic, please reach out.

Kindergarten Enrollment Information

We may not know what school looks like for Broken Arrow next year, but 5 year olds will go to kindergarten somewhere! We want our kindergarten families to register early so the district can make plans for next year. Hiring and teacher movement is dependent on the Spring forecast of Kindergarten Enrollment. CLICK HERE TO ACCESS KINDERGARTEN ENROLLMENT INFO!

We will wait to assign schools until boundary changes are finalized and will continue to keep you updated as we know more.

The Transfer Request Form will not be available until boundaries have been finalized. At that time, we will have the new form available at THE LINK HERE
