Blog

Welcome to the Bixby blog. This is a wonderful way to virtually open our classroom and community’s doors and read about what our teachers have to say about teaching and learning at Bixby School. We also have invited guest blog entries as well as members from our administrative team join in on our blogging. We hope you will enjoy reading about our school in their words.

Creating A Love Of Cooking (And Eating) Through SCIENCE!

Bixby is blessed to have faculty who are experts in their fields and bring unique knowledge to the classroom for children. One challenge to this model is ensuring consistent language and predictability for students throughout the transitions of the day....
