PCPS Participating in “Celebrate Freedom Week”
Ponca City Public Schools - October 31, 2022 6:54 am
CELEBRATE FREEDOM WEEK was started in Texas by Rick Green while serving as a State Representative in March of 2001. Rick brought together more than 100 democrats and republicans as co-authors of The Teach Freedom Act, HB1776.
Several states followed the example and the federal government then passed Constitution Day legislation in 2004.
Celebrate Freedom Week is an official holiday designed to emphasize the teaching of the country’s origins with an emphasis on the founding documents.
The curriculum is taught to children of various age groups, dependent on which state it’s being taught in, from kindergarten through the 12th grade.
