Superintendent Shelley Arrott hugs Child Nutrition employee Cheryl Sitterly and presents her a bouquet of roses for being the support employee with the most years in the district – 37!

All support staff were recognized for their years of service with a paw print pin indicating their years of working in the district in five-year increments.

Wildcat Steppers, Cheerleaders and the Big Blue Band performed and celebrated PCPS support employees at the Support Back-to-School Motivational Assembly held Wednesday in Robson Fieldhouse.

A similar agenda was followed at the certified staff assembly celebrating raises, facility improvements, community support, and a revised school calendar. Superintendent Arrott told employees the Board of Education approved restoring last year’s step raise plus a step for this year. Employees responded with ovations and received free Team PCPS T shirts funded by a local donor.

“An organization is only as good as its team,” said Arrott. “We want you to know that we value you and appreciate all the hard work you do to help provide the best educational environment for our students. Let’s have a great year!”
