Horizons at Atlanta International School is dedicated to closing the summer learning gap by promoting literacy, math and project-based learning to primary and middle school students in local public schools. The work is led by AIS teachers Chris Rhue and Kelsey Bunker, Horizons at AIS Co-Directors since 2016, and on Friday afternoon their commitment was recognized by the Rotary Club with two important awards: A Buckhead Rotary and District 6900 Grant Check of $3,000 for the AIS Horizons Program and The Rotary International Global Grant that has been awarded through the Buckhead Rotary. AIS’ Head of School, Kevin Glass, was also the recipient of The President’s Service Award for service to education for the 2019-20 year. The presentations were made by Buckhead Rotary 2020-2021 President Mark Johnson and 2019-2020 President Greg Davis, who commented: “One of Rotary’s overall goals is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, and the AIS Horizons program certainly fulfills that goal.” Receiving the awards, Head of School, Kevin Glass said: “We could not be more grateful for the generosity and support Buckhead Rotary has shown to the Atlanta International School Horizons Program. The program truly transforms the way students see themselves and the world around them. Since we started the program in 2016 the number of children we have been able to help has trebled, allowing us to engage in learning through the summer and throughout the year with those students who need our help the most. Support like this enables us to help these children to grow academically, socially and emotionally and to encourage them to grow in confidence and develop a lifelong love of learning.”
