Partners in Education

Invest In Their Future

Partners in Education (PIE) unites businesses, congregations, and community organizations with Tulsa Public Schools for the common goal of enhancing the education experience for students in Tulsa Public Schools and creating a workforce pipeline for Tulsa.

Our school partners understand that the quality of a community is defined by the strength of its public schools. They lend their time, talent, and treasure to helping our schools prosper and our students succeed.

There are two avenues to become a Partner in Education: Adopt-A-School and through 
Foundation for Tulsa Schools Partners in Education Sponsorships.

Adopt-a-school

One of Partner in Education’s signature and most popular programs is Adopt-A-School. This program provides a structured pathway for Tulsa Public Schools to partner with the Tulsa community. Corporate and faith-based organizations have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with teachers and students. During this collaboration, PIE partners and school leaders will work to determine how PIE partners can support the unique needs of each school. 

Impact
– Enhance the educational experiences for students at Tulsa Public Schools.
– Create a workforce pipeline for the Tulsa community.
– Support our deserving teachers and school leaders.

Become a Partner
1. Contact us today! Call or email Annabelle Elliott, or fill out this form.
2. We will help you identify a school and facilitate a meeting with the school leaders to discuss partnership goals

Partners in Education Sponsorships

Our children are Tulsa’s most critical resource. They are tomorrow’s workers, leaders, innovators, knowledge creators, and change agents. They deserve access to schools with the resources, programs, and curriculum to nurture their curiosity, imagination, spirit, talents, and desire to learn. The amazing teachers at Tulsa Public Schools are at the heart of student learning. They are everyday superheroes, working tirelessly encouraging young minds to think, question, and create. They inspire their students at every age and every stage, recognizing the potential of their students when no one else does. 

A Partner in Education Sponsorship through the Foundation for Tulsa Schools enables us to invest in teacher and student-centered priorities from classroom support to experiential learning experiences such as field trips and summer expanded learning. 

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools is living it’s mission by building a better community through the support of Tulsa Public Schools.

Partner Highlight

  • The value of serving as a volunteer with Partners in Education is that you have the opportunity to develop a long-term relationship with a child, making a difference in the child’s life. We know we can impact achievement, but what really counts is the relationship you establish with the child. You can be a force in changing how this child feels about learning.

    The partnership between All Souls Unitarian Church and Jackson Elementary began in 1988 and it continues to this day. All Souls provides tutors as reading buddies, math buddies, classroom volunteers, enrichment programs and field trips. All Souls has expanded its partnership to Gilcrease Junior High, Gilcrease Elementary, Hamilton Middle School and McLain Seventh Grade Academy.

  • You can’t enter the school without seeing one of our volunteers or their work. When the students faces light up when they see you, then you know you are making a difference in someone’s life. Their smiles are a greatreward!
    -Cathy Carney, Asbury United Methodist Church

    Asbury United Methodist Church and its volunteers help support teachers, staff and students at Walt Whitman Elementary. The church supports the school by helping in the classrooms, with class parties, tutoring and mentoring students and with activities such as knitting or art therapy.

  • ONEOK, Inc. understands that it takes a village to make an impact. Whether it’s spending time with our students, exposing them to different subjects or celebrating our staff, we are grateful to have them as a part of the village.
    -Tammy Britton, Principal at Burroughs Elementary

    ONEOK, Inc. has contributed to Burroughs Elementary continuously through their generous donations and weekly presence in the school building.Programs ONEOK helped sponsor include:

    – Fab Lab/STEAM Program: A hands-on project for 6th grade

    – Math Mentors: ONEOK, Inc. employees donate time every week to play research-based math games with 4th-graders

    – ONEOK Winning Ways Teacher of the Week: A weekly award that recognizes staff members who go above and beyond with a gift card

    – Reading Partners: A portion of this project is generously funded through a gift of ONEOK, Inc.

    – Holiday Luncheon: An annual event that brings faculty and staff together to share a meal and express gratitude

    – Teacher Appreciation Lunches: Each year, ONEOK, Inc. honors and appreciates the Burroughs faculty and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week

  • We value our teachers and the amazing work they do—developing our next generation of Tulsa leaders!

    T.D. Williamson supports local schools with funding, donated items, mentors and volunteers.

  • Quality education for Oklahoma’s children and youth is the foundation for not only their future quality of life, but that of our State.

    Each year the JROTC of Central High School posts the colors of PSO’s annual Veteran’s Day program at their headquarters.

    PSO gives a book to each Reading Partners student at Wayman Tisdale Fine Arts Academy during Week of the Young Child each year.
