Pioneer Tech teams spruce up Child Development Center

Ponca City Now - August 30, 2016 9:25 am

The Pioneer Technology Center Professional Development Committee decided this August to take the usual in-service training for employees out of the box and off campus.

“We decided to serve. We wanted to serve our community and help someone that needed us,” said Kendra Keelin, Instructional Director.

Multiple Pioneer Tech teams met at the Child Development Center on Grand and began working on the inside and outside of the facility.

One team started in the outside play area, where a sandbox was replaced and filled with new sand; old and dilapidated fencing was taken out as well. Gravel, which was donated by Evans and Associates, was used to fill in the space and allow proper drainage under a new deck built by another team. Other areas outside were cleaned up and repaired as needed by a third team.

Inside, a cleaning team shampooed carpets, wiped down walls in public hallways, sanitized and cleaned all equipment and carpets in the gym area. Also a team of skilled individuals worked to troubleshoot connection issues that the center had been having.

In the future, Pioneer Tech plans to go beyond Ponca City into other areas of the district to assist and serve. “We hope to make this a bi-annual event that we do during our Professional Development time,” Keelin said.
