The Peoria Public Schools Foundation is pleased to announce a new program for middle school students. The Horizons Club intent is to allow students to investigate various industries and occupational possibilities. This program started in January as a pilot program. Three schools Rolling Acres, Calvin Coolidge and Von Steuben had students from the 6th, 7th and 8th grade over the lunch hour attend the club once a week. The investigations will be web-based learning as well as a speaker series featuring professionals from a wide variety of industries. A year-end career fair highlighted the work and careers the club saw and was shared to the entire student bodies. Trish O'Shaughnessy is the coordinator of the program and did an outstanding job!
