Volunteers sought for Santa Shop on 12/8

posted Nov 7, 2018, 12:16 PM by Granger Meador   [ updated Nov 7, 2018, 12:21 PM ]

Each December, Jane Phillips Elementary School operates a Santa Shop so many of its students can go "shopping" to select Christmas gifts for members of their family. The sixth annual Santa Shop will be conducted on Saturday, December 8, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Community volunteers are needed. All students at the school can sign up for the event, and are assigned a time to participate. The student is paired with an adult volunteer to go through the shopping area to choose gifts. Another volunteer then wraps their gifts. While students are shopping, their parents can relax in the "Coffee Shop" where they are served a hot beverage and have the option of writing letters to their student. Each child who signs up in advance also received a new outfit purchased by a community volunteer.

In 2017, the Santa Shop served more than 280 children and their families. Over 700 breakfast donuts and nearly 250 outfits were donated.

Volunteers are needed to help serve breakfast, help students shop, and more. If you cannot be present to physically volunteer, there are other ways you can contribute. Please call the school at 918-336-9479 and ask to speak to Kashia or someone on the Santa Shop Committee.

Walk to school day on 10/10/2018

posted Oct 3, 2018, 6:17 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Oct 3, 2018, 6:17 AM ]

Walk to School Day
Elementary and middle school students in the Bartlesville Public Schools are encouraged to walk or bike to school on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. The annual Walk to School Day is part of the City of Bartlesville's Safe Routes to School program.

The international event is observed in more than 40 countries. It is an effort to raise awareness of the need for safe walking and biking facilities and to encourage students to take steps toward leading a healthier lifestyle.
 
Each student who walks or bikes to school that day will receive a prize/treat to acknowledge their participation in the program, as long as supplies last.
 
In 2017, City Grants Administrator Nancy Warring commented about the thousands of local students who participate annually. She said, "This event gives parents a chance to teach safe walking skills to their children. Plus it's good for the environment, and it reduces traffic congestion, pollution, and speed near the schools."

"Parents are encouraged to walk with their children, park and walk from a remote location, or organize a walking school bus," Warring said. "For families who live too far away to walk or bike to school, parents are encouraged to drop their students off a few blocks from their school so they can participate."
 
Walk to School Day was first held communitywide in Bartlesville in 2009, thanks to a grant awarded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to the City of Bartlesville to help facilitate the event.

Volunteers and other program supporters will be posted at each participating BPSD site to greet students who walk or bike to school, including some area elected officials and local police officers and firefighters.
 
For more information about Walk to School Day, see www.cityofbartlesville.org. To volunteer for the local event, contact Kerry Ickleberry, BPS Safe Schools coordinator:

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.
