Before starting Christmas Break, Sasakwa Public Schools hosted an archery tournament. The tournament was spread out over a few days and both Konawa and Bowlegs had students compete. Around 80 students total picked up a bow and tried to shoot their best. Each team competed for a high team score in hopes of qualifying for the state tournament. The top 12 individual scores from each team are submitted.

Sasakwa Public Schools has had an archery program through the Oklahoma National Archery in the Schools Program (OKNASP) for the past four years. The program is designed for 4th-12th graders. All of the Sasakwa teams (elementary, junior high and high school) have gone to the state tournament the past few years and have done well. The 2017 OKNASP State Shoot Tournament is scheduled for February 15th & 16th at the State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.  The Sasakwa teams are hoping to compete against other schools at the state level once again. 

School Messaging-Text Notification Remind 101

posted Dec 16, 2016, 9:26 AM by Dayna Jackson

Good day to all of our patrons of Sasakwa Schools! This message is to notify you of a change in how the school will be getting messages out to all parties concerning ball games, special events, closures of school, etc. We will no longer be using the call system we have used in the last few years, but will be going to a text notification system called Remind 101. There are multiple sections available and you should subscribe to ones that you need information from.  We have set up classes for the Whole School, High School, Elementary School and a special one for staff members. You may choose to subscribe to all three or just the ones that you have students in. I would recommend that you sign up for the whole school and the level your child is a student of at the least. This will allow you to stay in the loop to receive notifications of what is happening here at school.  For purposes of the classes we will deem high school to contain grades 7-12 and elementary to be grades 3 year olds to 6th grade. We are not responsible for the cost of texts if you have a pay-per-text plan. If you have unlimited texts there is no cost to receive the messages sent by the school.  The majority of messages going out from school will be to the whole school link.  To sign up for the new messaging system please follow the directions shown here.  

All lists are joined by sending a text to the following phone number:    81010
In the message area please enter the following code to join the given class:

Whole School:   @f88hb4  (include the @)
High School:      @a7dbhf
Elementary School:     @bfagg    

You will receive a text to verify that you do want to join the given class. Once again, this is the only way that you will receive notifications that are not posted on our Facebook page or school webpage. We hope this transition will go smoothly and the new system will work for your school district.

Thank You!

Cafeteria Progress!

Recent CLEET Graduate Joins Sasakwa School Community

On Friday, September 16th, two celebrations took place—Sasakwa had their Homecoming, and another class graduated from the CLEET Academy in Ada, Oklahoma. Among the CLEET graduates was Ty O’Donnell, who recently became a part of the Sasakwa community.  

O’Donnell grew up in Carney, Oklahoma, and graduated from Carney High School in 2004. He attended East Central University where he graduated with a degree in political science in 2015.

O’Donnell currently works as a Seminole Nation Lighthorse Patrolman. He said he became interested in law enforcement at a really young age. “My dad was the chief of police at Carney where I grew up… and it’s something that has always intrigued me,” O’Donnell commented.

When Sasakwa Public Schools began looking for someone to rent their vacant house on school grounds, O’Donnell was very interested. “I grew up around the school and I’ve got a lot of family members who are teachers,” said O’Donnell. “I definitely know how vital a school is to a community and it’s something I want to be a part of,” he commented further.

Kyle Wilson, Superintendent of Sasakwa Schools, was impressed by O’Donnell. “He seemed really professional the way he handled the approach and contacted me about the possibility of even renting that house and I thought it was a great idea to have a law enforcement presence on campus, even after hours,” said Wilson.

Along with helping out the school and community from a security standpoint, O’Donnell has volunteered to help in another area. “I’m really looking forward to the baseball season coming up,” O’Donnell stated.  He played baseball at Carney High School and a little in college. “It’s something I’d like to get involved in,” he added. O’Donnell said he also wants to be a good role model for the students at Sasakwa.

“We’re looking forward to having him here… and he’s got some potential to serve us pretty well,” stated Wilson. When asked what he thought of the Sasakwa community, O’Donnell said: “Everyone I’ve met has just been totally grateful that I’m here and I’m grateful to be here.”
