Support Class of 2017's Project Graduation through donations, volunteerism

For more than 20 years, Broken Arrow High School’s (BAHS) Project Graduation has given graduating seniors a way to celebrate their achievement with classmates in a supervised, fun and safe environment. This all-night “lock-in” party in the BAHS main lobby will bring the Class of 2017 together for one last hoorah following this year’s commencement ceremony on May 15.

Nationwide, prom and graduation nights are statistically the most fatal for high school students. Project Graduation offers each and every graduating senior a safe place to experience their achievement, and Broken Arrow families may take comfort knowing that their children remain safe while celebrating.

How you can help! 

Become a project Graduation sponsor and receive visibility at the graduation ceremony on Monday, May 15  and at Project Graduation later that evening. You can also become involved as a volunteer or donate items for the event such as food, drinks or prizes.

BAHS Drama encourages literacy to promote production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Feb. 9-12

A beloved library, the enchanted rose and a magic mirror all set the stage for Broken Arrow High School’s (BAHS) presentation of one of the most beloved Disney classics of all time, “Beauty and the Beast,” taking place at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center Feb. 9-11 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 12 at 2 p.m.

In an effort to promote the production, BAHS Drama Teacher Jana Ellis and her cast members wanted to also promote the importance of literacy to Broken Arrow's youngest readers with "Belle's Book Buddies" program. 

Belle, who is played by BAHS Junior Sophia Krist, visited a number of early childhood centers and elementary schools to encourage every student to read at least three books. 

The students who participated were put into a special drawing and will be randomly chosen to perform in the opening scene of the production.

"Through this initiative, if every elementary student took the challenge, more than 12,000 books could be read," said Ellis, who is enjoying watching her students inspire the younger ones. "This year’s cast and crew are definitely giving it their all." 

General admission tickets are $15 and children 10 and under are $5 (cash or check only). Tickets are available at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center (BAPAC) box office from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
