Red Ribbon Week 2018
Officer John Millard (SRO) and Haley Doherty (Counselor) spent time this morning in every elementary classroom passing out American Flag bracelets for Red Ribbon Week.

This year’s theme: Life is a Journey, Travel Drug Free

This week Quapaw is promoting our school to be strong and united against bullying and drugs. We will have a total of 16 drawings for incentive prizes for students participating in Red Ribbon Week. The winners must be wearing either their bracelet, a red ribbon or have red on their clothing. We are encouraging students to take care of others and themselves by taking a personal pledge for anti-drug and bully free schools.


Quapaw Schools is celebrating National School Lunch Week. This week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. The theme this year is School Lunch: Lots 2 Love. The heart of every school beats in its cafeteria and our school nutrition professionals serve love on every tray! Elementary students will love being served by surprise guests on Thursday and every student who eats a school lunch this week will be entered to win one of three gift baskets provided by OPAA! So encourage your child to participate and them ask them to share what they love about school lunches! #NSLW18 #lots2love #schoollunchlove
