Seniors Helping Seniors

Arapaho-Butler High School 2020 seniors created the “Seniors Helping Seniors” program to generate some positivity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Seven A-B seniors wrote letters to residents of Grace Living Center, Clinton Living Center and Angelwood Assisted Living. In the letter, they included a picture of themselves and a stuffed animal. Tack Sappington, left, and Kyle Scott delivered the letters to Angelwood. Zach Carlisle, Amy Jo Shepherd, Brittney Cannaley, Chaley Shepherd and Jace Edelen also participated.

Oklahoma climbs to third in the country for Pre-K access for 4-year-olds, according to a new report from the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER). In the same report last year, Oklahoma scored among the top eight states in the nation.

At this time of lock down and shut-outs and restricted visitation for family and friends of residents in long-term care, it is very important that we make sure to stay in contact with both loved ones and staff.

Though no formal action was taken during Tuesday’s special meeting, the Clinton City Council voiced its opinions to leave the activities center at Acme Park closed.

The “Night of the Arts” usually held at Clinton High School in the spring is yet one more event that had to be cancelled this year, since a public, in-person art exhibit would break all the rules of social distancing. So art teacher Joy Badillo is organizing a “virtual” art show that she’s alsoopening up to CHS faculty as well as CHS students.
