Mrs. Owens and the Library Club would like to thank all of the students, teachers, administrators, donors, and community supporters who helped to make this school year so successful. From the Scholastic Book Fair in the fall to the Social Studies and Science Fairs in the spring, we have had a busy and productive year. We have added more than one hundred new books to the library collection and continued our literacy initiatives with Career Projects and the Volunteer Reader Program. We also want to say a special “thank you” to donors such as The Lisa Libraries of New York, The Historic New Orleans Collection, Claiborne Parish Farm Bureau, Adoptaclassroom.org, and the White-Reinhardt Foundation for sponsoring many of our programs this year.

Students at Homer Elementary received Reading Prizes at the annual Awards Day. Thanks to a grant funded by The Lisa Libraries of New York, top readers were presented with books to take home.
On behalf of our administration, faculty, and support staff, we sincerely thank you for supporting us with your votes today. We believe that our students are our future. When you support our schools and the students within, you help support our future. Preparing our next generation is what we strive to do everyday, and your support encourages us. Thank you from the Homer High School faculty and staff.
