About us

The mission of the El Reno Public School Foundation is to foster a culture of educational excellence within our community. Through our efforts. we elevate the classroom experience, provide avenues for scholarships, champion mentoring initiatives, and celebrate the achievements of outstanding alumni.

The Foundation will use these means to fulfill this mission:

  • Encourage faculty members at all grade levels to submit grant applications for teaching projects that are innovative and thought-stimulating.
  • Administer higher education scholarships to academically worthy El Reno High School graduates.
  • Create funds by involving the community in a public auction every two (2) years.
  • Advertise a Phantom Party, without festivities, for contributions to support the work of the Foundation.
  • Select annually three (3) distinguished alumni of El Reno High School, and honor them with plaques awarded during a recognition banquet.

“When you support education, you are giving a gift that lasts forever.” - Wanda L. Bass
