Zarrow International School hosts Giant Garage Sale

Due to statewide budget cuts, Henry Zarrow International School (HZIS) parents are forced to come up with alternative ways to provide funding for students and teachers. On September 6th, we are hosting an enormous indoor garage sale, called Bargains at Borders.  It will be located at the old Borders Books on 21st Street. Our goal is to raise $16,000.00 dollars! That’s a lot of dinero!We have been collecting garage sale donations throughout the community for quite some time. We are working very hard to fill the gap that state funding cannot, but we can’t do it without community help from people like you.  HENRY ZARROW INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLHenry Zarrow International Elementary School begins immersing children in the Spanish language in kindergarten. Every subject is taught in Spanish until the second grade, when students are introduced to formal English studies. Research shows that students immersed in foreign language at an early age develop excellent listening skills and stronger creative thinking and problem solving abilities. Zarrow staff have found by the fifth grade, students emerge as bi-lingual citizens with unlimited opportunities.Named after renowned Tulsa philanthropist Henry Zarrow, the school is a child-centered learning community with the goal of producing socially responsible citizens with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Students receive instruction in fine arts, physical education, computers, technology, science, music, and the opportunity to learn the Orff instrument process, a method based on the works of European composer Carl Orff.For more information about the Henry Zarrow International School visit thier website at http://zarrow.tulsaschools.org/

Each kid's pack consists of a quart-sized pack of healthy, kid-friendly snacks for every hungry or homeless child who comes to Iron Gate. This year, Iron Gate will give out about 12,000 Kids' Packs. A $5 donation provides individual pack.

The goal of the kids pack challenge is to raise at least $5,000 to cover the expense of 1,000 kid’s packs for the first month of school in Tulsa. 

 

“If we could raise enough money to cover the first semester, that would be outstanding, “ said Connie Cronley, executive director of Iron Gate.

Pre-assembled food packs will contain approximately five different snacks that require no preparation and provide nutrition and calories for hungry kids.

 “One in four children goes to bed hungry. Over 36,700 children are hungry in Tulsa County. These children would fill up two BOK centers.  And that’s why at Iron Gate we feed people. “

“We’ve been feeding hungry and homeless people for 36 years.  We need your help because so many people in Tulsa are hungry and because no child should go to bed hungry.” Cronley added.

Iron Gate is a downtown soup kitchen and grocery pantry with the mission of feeding the hungry and  homeless of Tulsa every year. Last year Iron Gate fed over 300,000 Tulsans.

THE SUTTON CENTER

Our Mission:

The Sutton Center was founded in 1983 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding cooperative conservation solutions for birds and the natural world through science and education. In 1997 the Center affiliated with the University of Oklahoma through the Oklahoma Biological Survey in the College of Arts and Sciences. Our biologists and governing board strive to protect natural resources and environments where birds live and breed. Through their efforts, the Center has become an internationally recognized leader in avian conservation.

Research and Conservation Programs:

One of the Sutton Center’s most successful projects has been re-establishment of the bald eagle as a nesting bird in Oklahoma and other southeastern states. As a result, our national bird was removed from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife in the summer of 2007. Currently, the Center is researching the lesser prairie chicken, identifying threats and developing management techniques to halt the decline of this prairie icon. Other projects include publication of papers related to our prairie songbird conservation program, as well as ongoing surveys of bald eagle nests in Oklahoma, and a seven-year undertaking to produce a full-color Oklahoma Winter Bird Atlas as a companion volume to our Oklahoma Breeding Bird Atlas.

Education Programs:

The Sutton Center places strong emphasis on education through programs including:

  • It’s All About Birds!  - More than a dozen native and exotic birds fly around the auditorium in an exciting presentation that teaches students about science, biology and the ecosystem. The show highlights the importance of birds in art, history, literature and philosophy.
  • The Sutton Natural History Forum  - Photographers and cinematographers from National Geographic have shared their experiences with more than 53,000 Tulsa area students at this annual event. In addition, the Sutton Center, with support from NatureWorks and corporate sponsors, has awarded more than $85,000 in scholarships to conservation-minded Oklahoma students over the last four years.
  • Bald Eagle Nest Camera  -Continuous Web cam coverage gives viewers in more than 60 countries a rare look at our national bird. Online visitors can watch bald eagles hunt, feed their young and defend the nest.

How You Can Help:

As a nonprofit, the Sutton Center relies on the generous support of business leaders, as well as private and corporate foundations in the communities we serve. To learn more about helping or about our programs, contact the Center at 918.336.7778 or visit www.suttoncenter.org
