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 SCHOOL Henry 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.
