We've zigged, we've zagged, and now we are zipping to Blanchard for Friday Night Lights! See below for a message from Coach M! What a crazy week! As many of you know, our varsity game against Stillwater was canceled Monday. We then set up a game against Stigler that was cancelled yesterday. By the end of the day, we solidified a game with Blanchard who had cancelation against New Castle! We are all set to play tonight at Blanchard at 7pm. We will be their homecoming and the inaugural game in their new stadium! We are taking a roster of primarily futures players, and are so excited for these student athletes to get to compete in a Friday night atmosphere. If anyone would like to catch the livestream of the game, below is the link to their athletic website that should show the game live tonight. As always, thanks for supporting our student athletes! https://blanchardathletics.com/2020/08/25/blanchard-lions-live-events/

Sunday snapshots & important reminders for the upcoming week! Reminders: Keep up the great work, Spartans! Remember to screen your student(s) daily before sending them to school and always err on the side of caution if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. As far as masks go, you're doing awesome! Let's continue to work together in our mitigation efforts so we can stay in school! Remember, you can stay up-to-date on BPS COVID Data here: bixbyps.org/covid-data. Sunday Snapshots: The pics below are a very small glimpse into of all of the magic happening in Bixby Schools! Our teachers are truly incredible! Over the past few months they have been completely redefining what education looks like. They have googled, scanned, screenshotted, flip-gridded (that's a verb right?!), designed, aligned, collaborated, innovated, and REINVENTED all the things in the midst of much uncertainty. Seeing them in action is nothing short of inspiring!
As Spartans, we are grateful to have this humbling piece of history right here in our community. This steel beam from the Twin Towers, resting at Washington Irving Park, serves as a reminder of not only the tragic events of 9/11/2001 and all of the lives lost, but also of the strength and resilience of our heroes. May we never forget. "If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate." - Sandy Dahl, Wife of Flight 93 Pilot, Jason Dahl
It's Board Meeting Night and that brings another month of special recognitions! Tonight, we are grateful to celebrate Tulsa Pier Drilling, an essential vendor in getting our new scoreboard up and running at Spartan Stadium JUST in time for our first game! Also, the Spartan Spirit Award was presented to Amy Nielsen who organized 8 days of childcare for our staff kiddos during our cohort weeks! Thank you Amy for all you do for our community! You encompass so much of what being a Spartan is all about!
Congratulations to Mrs. Stuff and thank you Oklahoma Central Credit Union! Mrs. Stuff entered a drawing for teachers who use the Banzai curriculum covering financial literacy and won $1000.00 for her classroom which we know she will put to great use! Way to go, Mrs. Stuff!

Sometimes the greatest lessons are taught by students. Thank you, Sydney, for reminding us that challenging times are simply an opportunity to grow. "I want to look back on this year and be so grateful and thankful, look back and think, regardless of the circumstances, I made the best of this bad situation and had a great year with all my friends and learned a lot and grew a lot," Bush said. https://ktul.com/news/local/bixby-senior-staying-positive-about-distance-learning
