Present for the award were (L-R) Jane Gough of the After School Program; Karen Stephens, community service director for the Rotary; and Karen Oot, assistant principal of Peachtree City Elementary.

The Peachtree City Rotary Club, a Partner in Education, is assisting Peachtree City Elementary School’s After School Program (ASP) with its staff development initiatives.

In addition to ASP staff, counselors in the Children at Risk in Education (CARE) program and volunteer school mentors will also participate.

The Rotary Club of Peachtree City is committed to being a Partner in Education with Fayette County Public Schools. Members volunteer their time to help improve countywide educational programs and support students and faculty. The Partners in Education Program is a cooperative effort between the school system and the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce.
