WHERE ALL CHILDREN ARE EMBRACED, CHALLENGED, AND CELEBRATED!

K-2 Specials Night


WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR spring showers in the forecast, please note that the K-2 specials night will happen rain or shine! We will modify any outdoor portions to indoor spaces, as needed. If we are outside, students are welcome to wear jackets for their music performance, as needed, if the evening cools off. We are looking forward to another fantastic night to celebrate all things music, art, and PE!


SEE BELOW FOR COPIES OF NOTES THAT WENT HOME WITH SPECIFIC INFORMATION For FAMILIES!

It's Teacher Appreciation Week!

While treats and games are always appreciated during Teacher Appreciation Week, the genuine notes from students and parents fill a teacher's heart in ways that candy can't - even though candy is still worth a try, right :).


Please have your student(s) write a note, draw a picture, or however they wish to show their appreciation for their teacher and have them bring them on Monday or any day next week!


The notes we have received from families has meant so much for staff this year! Click HERE if you want to submit a Broken Arrow Family Bravo for a staff member who has made a difference to your child and family! I would love for EVERY teacher to receive a Family Bravo during Teacher Appreciation Week!

Novice Music Program!

I wanted to share an exciting opportunity for your student this summer- the Novice program is back! The Novice Instrumental Music Exploratory program is a chance for your student to try many orchestral and band instruments before they enter middle school. Students will be introduced to 4 orchestra instruments: violin, viola, cello and bass, and 7 band instruments: flute, clarinet, trumpet, french horn, trombone, baritone, and tuba. This year Novice is open to all current 4th and 5th graders. Novice will be held from June 6th through the 9th. On June 10th there will be an opportunity for parents to conference with the Novice facilitators. You can attend either a morning session (8:30-11:30) or an afternoon session (12:30-3:30). All sessions are held at LHS. If you are interested please enroll using the following link:

A few things to note- there is a $60 fee for Novice however there are scholarships available, just contact your home school's secretary or music teacher for details! If you have already enrolled your 5th grader in their middle school classes you can change their preference after they attend Novice if you choose. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the novice facilitators Emily Boedeker at eboedeke@usd497.org or Amanda Peterson at apeterso@usd497.org.


We hope to see you this summer!
