Lakeland Rotary Supports Philip O’Brien Elementary

On June 28, 2022, our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Vicky Adams, and our Principal, Mr. Charlie Huntley, attended the Lakeland Rotary Club luncheon and meeting. The Lakeland Rotary Club is the generous sponsor of the Know & Grow program at Philip O’Brien Elementary, Crystal Lake Elementary, and Highlands City Elementary for the past two years.

In addition to the iPads presented as part of the Know & Grow event, the Lakeland Rotary Club presented a $7,000 donation to Philip O’Brien Elementary! It is with a most grateful heart that we accept this donation and work to build an outdoor classroom focused on hands-on science teaching and learning for all students.
Thank you Lakeland Rotary!
