Rock Chapel Elementary School is headed for some changes.
On July 20 at 10 a.m., Georgia United Credit Union volunteers will provide a facility makeover to the school as part of the credit union’s 5th Annual School Crashers program.
Rock Chapel, which hosts 540 students and 90 faculty and staff members, will undergo facility and grounds improvements from Georgia United’s team members, donors, local vendor partners and volunteers — all motivated to provide the students with a safe and enjoyable place to learn.
Rock Chapel, this year’s School Crashers grand prize winner, was nominated by first-year principal Lisa Green. The school, located at 1130 Rock Chapel Road, originated in 1825 as a one-room log house before being reestablished in 1940 at its current location.
“The school crashers program brings together communities to support their local schools,” said Shawn Turpin, Georgia United’s executive vice president of Sales and Service. “Over the last four years, School Crashers has provided 25 makeovers with improvement valued in excess of $800,000. We look forward to our fifth year of serving our local communities by improving school facilities for the youth of today.”
