Sunday Snapshot & Reminders for the Week! This week's pic comes from Mrs. Lytle's class at North Intermediate! They read "After the Fall," then used their problem solving skills to build a device to keep Humpty Dumpty safer in the event of another mishap! Not all of the eggs made it safely but students were excited to brainstorm ways to improve their designs. Reminder for the Week: Fall Break is Thursday the 15th - Monday the 19th! We will see students back at school on Tuesday, October 20th! Looking forward to three great days of learning and then a 5-day weekend! Happy Fall, y'all!
We're getting a makeover! Just a quick note to let you know that our BPS website will be down for just a bit tomorrow, beginning around 9 AM, as we transition to an upgraded version! It should be back up by the end of the day. This will not affect our communication tools at all. Please contact your school office should you need something while the site is down. Have a great day!
Spartans, please join us in sharing gratitude for these incredible humans! Our school nurses are phenomenal under regular circumstances. Through this new normal of COVID-19, we are relying on them even more to help keep students and staff healthy and safe! Spreading some Sonic cheer to these Spartan Superstars made for a great day, yesterday! THANK YOU, BPS NURSES!
Spartan families, Parent-teacher conferences are coming up on Thursday 10/8 and Tuesday 10/13. All meetings will be held virtually. School sites/teachers have sent information regarding scheduling/sign ups. Please contact your school's office should you have any questions or need assistance.
Sunday Snapshot & Reminders for the Week: Reminders: Remain vigilant against COVID. While the district is managing the pandemic well, this is not the time to become complacent. Please remind your children to wear their masks, wash their hands, and maintain a safe distance whenever feasible.

The creativity and innovation is inspiring! Keep up the great work, SCA teachers and students! You are rocking it!

There's a familiar face on this month's cover of Tulsa Kids Magazine! Jack, we simply can't look at this picture and not smile! What a wonderful article about an amazing Spartan family! “My hope is that as Jack gets older, these kids remember the impact Jack had on them and they carry it with them, treating everyone with kindness and teaching their kids to do the same.” https://www.tulsakids.com/understanding-a-child-with-autism/

With so much to learn in a whole new world of teaching virtually, you all are rocking it! Thank you Mrs. Langston for sharing this with us! "I also know teachers are amazing humans. But, the interaction between teachers and students is just incredible to watch. It’s something I haven’t been able to see first hand until this year. She barely knows Jules but is able to make Jules feels so special. Wren’s teacher is the same and I’m sure I’ll post about her, too! Thank you virtual teachers for making these kids feel so great ❤️"

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/
