Please Consider Being a Partner in Education PIE-
How it works, at the beginning of each school year we bring our Chamber Businesses together with our School Principals. The principals talk about some of their needs for the school year. The business then decides how it can help. There is never any pressure from the principals and they are happy with whatever the business wants to provide.
It is totally up to the business what they will do for their partner school. This is an incredible project of the Ponca City Chamber and truly benefits the students in our public and private schools.
Please say YES to being a PIE Partner. We will take as many as we can get. As you can tell some of our schools don’t have at least 3 PIE Partners. Will you take one of these schools. If so, email [email protected] or phone Rich at 765-4400.
