In the Community: Tulsa's Channel 8's Park Elementary Cookout

Tulsa's Channel 8 hosted a cookout for our 'Partner in Education,' Friday, May 3.

The cookout was for Park Elementary faculty, students family and residents near the school. The cookout in West Tulsa involves everyone at Tulsa's Channel 8.

Before lunch, students performed the Maypole dance for their parents and family. The Maypole performances started 27 years ago by retired P.E. teacher Phyllis Worthley.

"It's just a tradition. I don't know what else you could do to supply this neighborhood, this area, with such a positive day for the parents, grandparents and ex-students," Worthley said.
