BHS M.A.D. Week Assembly on 4/1/2016

Students were anything but fools, instead truly making a difference for others at a 2016 April Fool's Day full-school assembly at Bartlesville High School. The assembly capped Making a Difference Week, with the week's many events for the benefit of Kyrian Anderson, an outgoing fifth grader at Hoover Elementary with a heart for soccer. At eight years old, Kyrian was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in December of 2013. He has had to be away from home for treatments and has missed most of his fifth-grade year. Through it all, he keeps everyone positive and laughing! Kyrian’s mother is also part of the BPSD family - she is a teacher at Jane Phillips Elementary.

At the assembly, it was announced that $1,500 had been raised for Kyrian thus far. The students have also created a Go Fund Me account:

The assembly brought all four grade levels together for only the second time this school year, this time gathering in the beautiful Bruin Field House for spirit squad performances, a lively student 3-on-3 basketball game, followed by a 5-on-5 game of students versus faculty members. Each class had a group competing in a lip sync contest, along with a faculty group. The assembly ended with students waving their smartphone's lights to Journey's Don't Stop Believin', a song quite familiar to those students who had attended Central Middle School.
