Bartlesville Education Promise and the Bartlesville Masonic Lodge announce that a fundraising breakfast will be held from 7-11 a.m. Nov. 3.


The breakfast will be held at the Bartlesville Masonic Lodge, 610 NE Washington Blvd. Funds raised will go to the education programs of Bartlesville Education Promise.


Bartlesville Education Promise is a 501-c3 tax-exempt organization with the mission of supporting Bartlesville Public School with the goal of helping all students to graduate from high school. Programs are administered in association with the school staff and teachers. During the 2017-18 school year, programs included elementary reading books and after-school tutoring for elementary students to assure all third-graders pass the state-sponsored reading test. After school tutoring in math and English is provided at both middle schools. It’s also available at the high school for math, English and science.


During the summer, funds were provided for numerous summer learning programs to provide a summer-learning experience for all students. During the 2016-17 school year, 91 Bartlesville and 17 Tri-County Tech teachers participated and 3,300 students took advantage of at least one of the Bartlesville Education Promise activities. All funds are provided from local donors.


Tickets for the breakfast are $6 if purchased in advance and $7 at the door on the morning of Nov. 3.
