Miss Helen’s Private School was excited to celebrate this year’s 101st day of school on Jan. 29. In honor of this auspicious day the students and staff dressed up as the dalmatians from the classic Disney movie “One Hundred and One Dalmatians,” a 1961 American animated adventure film based on the 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. 
In celebration, the kindergarten through 5th grade students took to the Alsuma soccer field near 51st Street and Mingo Road in Tulsa, which is located behind the school, for a 100-yard dash.
Cruella de Vil, Jasper and Horace were there to try and catch as many puppies as they could. The preschool puppies were in the “pound” barking for their litter mates on the field. The question was, will Pongo and Perdita rescue their puppies? It was an exciting puppy chase.
Other activities for this day included a blanket drive for local animal shelters, a special “Puppy Chow” snack mix, a schoolwide “Bingo” sing-a-long, and lots of photo opportunities.
Now in its 65th year of education, Miss Helen’s Private School has provided excellence in early childhood education since 1954. The school’s goal is to provide a great learning institution where children can develop their reading, math, and social talents as well as improve communication skills and learning habits.
Today, Miss Helen’s heritage lives on in the school’s facility at 48th Street and Mingo Road. Miss Helen’s offers programs in three areas: Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary Grades 1st through 5th.
