Spartans, if this doesn't inspire all the #fridayfeels, we aren't sure what will! Bixby West Elementary launched another year of Best Buddies this week! Best Buddies International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are so grateful to have this partnership here at BPS are thrilled to be bringing it to all school sites this school year! Learn Well. Live with Honor. Go Spartans!
It’s Board of Education Meeting Night, Spartans. As always we start with recognition. From students to teachers, administrators and tonight, parents…there’s so much to celebrate at BPS! Tonight’s Spartan Spirit Award went to Rachel Irwin and Leslie Haughey, two parents at Bixby East Elementary who dedicated many, many hours to their school when an unexpected flood disrupted our kindergarten classrooms during the first week of school. These two wonderful parents are always among the hands on deck at Bixby East Elementary but during difficult times especially, we want to extend our deepest gratitude! Also, thank you to Channing and Reagan, hailing from Bixby West Elementary, for leading tonight's pledge. Learn Well. Live with Honor. Go Spartans!

Spartan Fans, We have our first HOME GAME at Lee Snider Stadium this week as our Spartans take on the Springdale Har-Ber Wildcats on Friday evening at 7 PM! It is also Military Appreciation Night and we look forward to honoring our veterans. As always, we expect a large crowd. Last weekend's events were an unfortunate reminder that although we want everyone to enjoy the Friday Night Lights atmosphere, safety must always remain our one priority. Those planning to join us should be sure to review updated Stadium Guidelines at bixbyps.info/stadiumrules.
Wake up, Spartans! It's time for our best first day ever! We can't wait to see you! If you're on Bus 29A this morning, you can expect a special guest! ❤️💙 Learn Well. Live with Honor. Go Spartans!

Who doesn't love a full-circle moment?! It was a proud day for Mrs. Thompson (former 9GC Teacher and current EdTech Specialist) earlier this week as she welcomed her previous students on their new journey as her new colleagues and Bixby Spartan educators. She shared her thoughts with us via a quote..."Teaching is not just imparting knowledge; it's igniting the spark that fuels a lifelong love for learning. Inspiring future educators is shaping the architects of tomorrow's world." Learn Well. Live with Honor. Go Spartans!

This new addition brings a total of 20 new classrooms and 30,000 additional square feet at Bixby West Elementary and Bixby West Intermediate! We are building an extraordinary future together, Spartans! We'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank our entire community for supporting #bixbybonds, making it ALL possible!
Mrs. Tusia's turn! She traveled up north this summer and even found a Tulsa penguin on Lake Michigan! She also visited the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Overall, this little towel traveled over 3,000 miles! #bixbybeachtowels
Spartans, Student/parent technology information for each of your BPS students has been sent your way via email this afternoon! We did have one small hiccup on PowerSchool usernames for some families and will be re-sending those shortly! This includes student ID numbers which are used to access My School Bucks, Ride 360, and other important district platforms. You'll need it at your fingertips as the school year approaches! Also, you will find information on how to access PowerSchool for both you as a parent, and for your student. You will need this when schedules are released later this month. So - check for that email and keep it safe and accessible. As always, we're here to help. Please do not hesitate to reach out! Learn Well. Live with Honor. Go Spartans!
