Childers' Clubs and Activities
As part of its mantra of “100 percent Literacy, Engagement, Graduation,” Broken Arrow Public Schools continually focuses on providing students with educational opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. Research shows that school connectedness is one of the most influential factors for success in our students, and it is important for us to create an environment in which every student has a niche.
