Ms. Brewer is the district's August Teacher of the Month

posted Aug 21, 2018, 11:13 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Aug 21, 2018, 11:16 AM ]

Heidi Brewer, a First Grade teacher at Jane Phillips Elementary School, was named the Bartlesville Public School District Teacher of the Month for August 2018 by Arvest Bank and Oakley Chevrolet Buick.

In recognition of this honor, Ms. Brewer was presented with a plaque and a $300 check by Annah Fischer, Arvest Bank Marketing Manager, and David Oakley Jr., owner of Oakley Chevrolet Buick.

Ms. Brewer is in her 19th year of teaching. She has been teaching First Grade for four years and has previously taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Third Grade.

Her own Second Grade teacher was the inspiration behind her choice to be an educator. “My Second Grade teacher was an inspiration to me.  She had a lot of patience and understanding that made me love school.  So from then on I wanted to be a teacher just like her,” said Brewer.

Ms. Brewer knows how important trust is in a teacher-student relationship. “Success isn’t always measured by what is published, but rather by the lives that are touched and changed because I was able to be their teacher,” she remarked.

When she isn’t teaching, Ms. Brewer stays busy in the community. She volunteers with Special Olympics and the Santa Shop and PTO Bingo night at Jane Phillips and has taught a Zumba class with her coworkers. Ms. Brewer is also involved with the youth program at her church and teaches Sunday school classes, leads service activities with youth on Wednesday nights, and helped with the young ladies at girl’s summer camp.

Bartlesville Public Schools is proud to join Arvest Bank and Oakley Chevrolet Buick in honoring Ms. Heidi Brewer as a Bartlesville Teacher of the Month.

Time to apply for free & reduced school meals

posted Aug 10, 2018, 2:15 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Aug 10, 2018, 2:16 AM ]

Free & reduced meals
The start of the new school year means it is time for families of schoolchildren to apply for free and reduced meals. Almost half of the children attending Bartlesville Public Schools already qualify for a reduction in or elimination of the cost of breakfast or lunch. The district is confident even more children could receive this service if their parents would apply. Please share the link www.heartlandapps.com with those who might need this assistance or help them get the paper application from any school office or cafeteria.

Proper nutrition is critical for the development and academic performance of children; undernourished children are more likely to be less energetic and less able to concentrate. Having as many qualified children as possible participate is also important for the district to receive its fair share of funding for many grants and other programs that assist learning, including the federal E-rate program that helps pay for its computer network and services. Thus participation impacts the learning of all children, not just those who qualify for direct assistance.

Please help us get this information to those in need among your friends, family, and others you know and encounter in our community. Thank you!

Health Department urges parents to immunize kindergarteners

posted Jul 5, 2018, 7:30 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Jul 5, 2018, 7:32 AM ]

The Washington County Health Department is encouraging parents to have their children immunized for the 2018-2019 school year now to avoid the rush. Parents of kindergartners, seventh graders, and students entering college, please review your children’s immunization record to ensure they are ready for the upcoming year.

Back-to-school vaccinations help protect Oklahoma’s children and families from the spread of infectious diseases. Vaccines help develop immunity to countless infectious diseases by enabling the body to recognize and fight vaccine-preventable diseases. The following vaccines are required for Oklahoma children entering or returning to school in the fall:
  • Kindergarten — DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), IPV (polio), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and Varicella (chicken pox), HepB, HepA
  • Seventh grade — Tdap; and CDC recommends the meningitis vaccine and HPV vaccine
  • College entry — Meningitis
For more information, see the state health department's webpage about school vaccinations.
If your child is due for a vaccination, visit your child’s healthcare provider or the Washington County Health Department at 5121 SE Jacquelyn Lane in Bartlesville from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. The health department is closed for lunch noon to 1 p.m. and clinic hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Washington County Health Department is having a day just for school shots on Monday, July 30, 2018, but due to staff shortages you can call and make an appointment now at 918-335-3005.
