Lake Forest Elementary School in Sandy Springs has partnered with Peachtree Presbyterian Church in Buckhead for tutoring and mentoring programs, the school district announced April 19.
The church’s volunteer service arm, the Red Dot ministry, chose Lake Forest as its focus school for tutoring in reading and math, teacher assistance, event volunteering and mentoring. The Red Dot initiative aims to link the congregants to communities across metro Atlanta.
Volunteers are matched with a teacher and class for the entire school year.
“We have a great partnership with Lake Forest and our goal for our PPC Red Dots is to support the school — staff, students and community,” said Raechel Moorhead, an elder at the church, in the release. “Our Room Friend program does more than just your typical room parent duties; we build relationships with the students and teachers.”
Lake Forest is a Fulton County public school.
