Adoptable Pets

Body
Oh hello, I’m Chica. I am a very sweet little girl hoping to find my fur-ever home. I’ve been to a couple homes already and they were just not the best fit. I love attention, food, and playing with mouse toys. If you give me a home I will give you all of my love! I would really like a home for the holidays. For adoption information, contact the Northern Oklahoma Humane Society.

Ponca City Public School District celebrates Education Support Professionals

Body
The Ponca City Public School District has been celebrating Education Support Professionals this week November 16-20, 2020. Superintendent Shelley Arrott explained, “The week of November 16 is American Education Week. This week presents everyone the opportunity to celebrate public education and honor all individuals who are making a difference to ensure every student receives a quality education. National Support Professionals are honored within this week. It takes everyone from transportation, custodians, maintenance, crossing guards, child nutrition workers, teacher assistants, paraprofessionals, computer technicians, administrative support, secretaries and more to support our students. PCPS currently has 343 Educational Support Employees and the District has been honoring these individuals all week. Sites held special activities aligned with COVID protocols to honor these men and women who support not only our students, but our staff. Without the dedication of these employees it would be impossible for our district to function on a daily basis. These support professionals are an integral part of our school system and play a huge role in keeping our schools running smoothly and impacting the lives of our students. We could not make it without our Educational Support Professionals!”
