Hey how about a Halloween Party? You up for it?

How about Mr. Skull’s perfect teeth. Makes for a beautiful smile!


A ghoul with two heads – you know it is not polite to stare!

Ah yes, the Amazing Zelda- the Fortune Teller – if You Dare. She doesn’t have good news for everybody.

Watch where you sit

Hey, we don’t want you to leave!! Have a seat! Yes, that one there. We made it just for you.

Have a bite to eat! Don’t you like our cookies? You don’t really want to upset the baker. You really don’t.


You don’t want to leave now do you? We are about to have ever so much fun.

Town and Country School Moving to Fulton Teaching and Learning Academy

Our son’s school, Town and Country Schools, has a contract to purchase  Fulton Teaching and Learning Academy from Tulsa Public Schools.  The deal hasn’t closed yet but TPS was gracious enough to let the parents and staff tour the Fulton facility last Saturday.

Town and Country has been growing and needs more room. TPS is in the middle of an active downsizing program so the sale could be a win-win for both parties.


The parents and staff of Town and Country are very excited. TPS has maintained and upgraded the over sixty year facility very well. The classrooms are large, the library, cafeteria, and auditorium are wonderful.

The facility, built in 1960 consists of several circular buildings connected by hallways. My high school had a similar configuration. By the time I figured out where everything was it was time to graduate.


There is no gymnasium so there are plans to build a new one on the property. The furnishings and equipment on site are not included in the sale. TPS is inventorying and will take what it can use elsewhere. Town and Country may be able to purchase what it wants of the rest.


The property is not a school now. TPS has used it for a learning and conference center for several years. Ironically the Head of School attended Fulton Elementary as a child. I won’t tell you when that was. At least one parent that I know of also attended the school.

Town and Country is looking forward to the move over the summer. Once the transaction closes the parents and staff will have the opportunity to paint, move, haul, landscape and other things.

I understand the the staff of the Fulton facility are not too happy about the move. I don’t blame them, they have a very nice building that serves them well they have kept very good care of it. I doubt that you will find too many school buildings that are still useful and in service sixty years after they are built.
