Come Meet Our Wildcat Pride!

August 9th, 2019

Dear Student Organization,

Quapaw High School is hosting a Future Interest Exposition for our Junior and Senior classes. You may be interested to know that over 25 percent of our senior class maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. In addition, 50 percent of our junior class maintain a 3.0 GPA or above. We would like to invite you to host an information table at our second annual Wildcat Pride: Investing in My Future Expo.

The purpose of the event is to expose our students to college life and connect them with a variety of career opportunities. Our students have expressed their desire to explore personal interest with less classroom disruption. We hope you will assist in making this a successful event for our students.

When: October 23, 2019

Where: Quapaw High School: 305 W. 1stSt. Quapaw, Oklahoma 74363

Time: 1:00pm-3:30pm

Please let me know if you or a representative will be present for the event by October 15, 2019. If we are able to confirm several representatives, we intend to invite a neighboring high school to participate in the event in addition our students. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Haley Doherty

Just a reminder to please pay outstanding breakfast/lunch balances from last year before school begins on Thursday. Thank you.
