Broken Arrow Public Schools Foundation awards $25,000 in classroom grants to teachers

The Broken Arrow Public Schools Foundation recently awarded 45 classroom grants worth $25,000 to teachers at 18 school sites across the district.

All Broken Arrow teachers were eligible to apply for grants to help enhance educational opportunities for their students. Winning projects were determined by a committee of BAPS Foundation members based on the number of students impacted and their uniqueness.

“It is always exciting to fulfill teachers needs in the classroom on grant delivery day,” said Frankie Catlett, BAPS Foundation President. “The emotions and excitement that the teachers display makes everything the Foundation does through the year worthwhile. We are fortunate to live in a community that supports our schools and allows us to partner with the administration to enhance our kids’ educational journey.” 

Grant Highlights

Some of the grants funded include a pollinator sanctuary and an out-of-this-world aquaponics system. The pollinator sanctuary will improve the ecosystem of the campus in hopes to create a sanctuary for native insects and wildlife. The aquaponics grant will allow students to participate in a four-step experiment that will involve creating a fictitious narrative about Mars, the application of the scientific method and the development of futuristic aquaponics.
