Tee Up In Gym Class

In elementary schools in our community and across the United States, many students are teeing off for the first time thanks to The First Tee National School Program, bringing our curriculum to your child’s gym during physical education class. By teaching elementary students The First Tee’s Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits, we’re putting them on the course to a healthy and active lifestyle.

The First Tee of Tulsa is proud to welcome Oaks Mission School in Oaks. Oklahoma and Horace Mann Elementary in Hominy, Oklahoma to our National School Program. Their addition will bring the grand total to 12 NSP Schools sponsored by The First Tee of Tulsa supporters and corporate sponsors.  Also, there are 10 schools in the Tulsa area that are enrolled in the National Schools Program with The Fist Tee of Tulsa: Sequoyah Elementary, McAuliff Elementary, Lanier Elementary, Robertson Elementary, Park Elementary, Jackson Elementary, Walt Whitman Elementary, Academy Central Elementary, Emerson Elementary, Carver Middle School, Marshall Elementary, and Jenks East Elementary.

If any school in Northeastern Oklahoma would like to apply for the National School Program please contact Janice Gibson at jgibson@thefirstteetulsa.org or call 918-591-4168.
