A letter from Principal Cross.
Peary Elementary teachers share a video to celebrate the current 6th graders move to middle school.
We recently received notice that SchoolWay will be retired as of July 1, 2019, so our schools will no longer be able to use it. Because of this, we are transitioning to SchoolMessenger.
Peary Elementary school is on the move. Tucked away inside a neighborhood on the city’s east side, the school has seen a dramatic increase in academics, attendance, and behavior. The staff and leadership of the school believe the main reason is the family atmosphere they strive to maintain in the building. “We’re the polar bear family,” explains Principal Tessa Cross. “We’re a family, it’s not ‘you’re the students, I’m the principal,’ we’re a family, I’m your momma bear and that’s seriously what we talk about. I’m momma bear.”
Superintendent Gist shares a message about equity.
Proposition 4 of the 2021 Bond includes $319.3 million to provide quality learning materials and programs, including $1 million in funding to support the district’s work to honor the legacy of Greenwood and the Tulsa Race Massacre and support its partnership with the Greenwood Rising museum (expected to be completed later this year).
This evening, Tulsa Public Schools announced the district’s 2021 Teacher of the Year and 2021 Support Employee of the Year at a special event celebrating the Teachers of the Year and Support Employees of the Year from schools and sites throughout the district.
