Week of Feb. 24 - March 2

Hopefully, the extreme winter weather conditions are behind us, and we can look forward to warmer temperatures that spring weather will bring.

Barnsdall students will be participating in a virtual day this Friday, Feb. 26. Next week, students will complete the third quarter as they move closer to spring break in just a few weeks. Spring break is scheduled for March 15-19. Students will also participate in one virtual day in the upcoming month, on March 26.

If you are planning spring break activities and want to stay close to home, Woolaroc is a special place to visit, with lots to offer for a full day of activities. Woolaroc has two popular attractions, the Mountain Man Camp and the Animal Barn, opening on March 17. Visitors will learn about the lifestyles of fur traders from the 1840s at the Mountain Man Camp. The camp has been a favorite attraction of Woolaroc for 25 years.

The Animal Barn is another popular attraction and is home to many baby animals such as chickens, rabbits, goats, and calves. These attractions are free to visit with the cost of admission. Woolaroc is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
