Children's book series

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools is excited to announce Celebrate Tulsa!, the second book in their children’s series. It is written and illustrated by Tulsa Public Schools teachers, students, and staff. From the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. parade to the Tulsa Greek Festival, this book highlights the multitude of events and celebrations that take place in Tulsa each year. Celebrate Tulsa! honors the diversity of cultures, races, religions, languages, foods, traditions, music and art in our city and serves as a reminder that even though we may not share the same beliefs or backgrounds, what we share in common is greater than what makes us different.

One-to-One Literacy Model

In addition to highlighting Tulsa’s unique attributes and building a sense of community pride, a goal of the Good Night Tulsa project is to promote the love of reading and enhance literacy competence for the children of Tulsa. 

We have a created a one-for-one model; for every book sold another will be donated to a student at a Tulsa Public Schools Title 1 elementary school.

Proceeds will Support

Proceeds from the children’s book series will benefit the programs of the Foundation for Tulsa Schools, including Partners in Education, which unites businesses, faith-based organizations and the community to support students in Tulsa Public Schools, whether they’re learning at home or physically in the classroom.
