The Homer High School Library Club held its Fall Book Fair November 6-10.  Thank you to all of the teachers, parents, students, and administrators who helped to make it a huge success.  Proceeds from the Scholastic Book Fair will be used to purchase new library books and materials for the library.  At the conclusion of the week-long event, Library Club members were given the chance to select new books for the permanent collection in the high school library. We would also like to thank Homer Junior High School faculty, staff, and students for hosting the event this year. Homer Junior High teachers had the opportunity to spend their Scholastic Dollars at the book fair, using funds from last year’s book fair.

Entergy Grant Funds Theater Materials for Homer High School Students

Entergy Louisiana has awarded a grant of $1,000.00 to Homer High School.    This grant is made possible by the Entergy Charitable Foundation, which supports educational programs that are focused on improving communities as a whole.   This grant opportunity for the theater program at Homer High School will provide materials to enhance performance art and culture through community improvement and enrichment activities.  The grant monies will be used to purchase professional costumes, wigs, and make-up kits for live play performances in the school auditorium.   The project, titled “A Packed House for Homer High: Making the Dream a Reality,” will be fully implemented during the 2017-2018 school year.  Students enrolled in Speech Communications and Fine Arts Survey classes will be able to practice make-up application skills in class before a play is performed.  Students will then use the makeup kits to create their characters for the live stage performances, as well.  Students will utilize the costume materials such as wigs, hats, and hand-prop accessories to compose individual looks for their characters during dress rehearsals and for final play performances in the school auditorium.  Parents and members of the community are encouraged to support the theater program productions through attendance at the live stage performances.  Stay tuned for updates on the project’s progress when school begins in August.
