Welcome back!  We are incredibly excited to begin the school year here at Homer-Center Elementary. This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students, as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have been before! We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms.

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities for a wonderful year.

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of your child during his/her elementary school years.

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at Homer-Center Elementary. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.

Again, we welcome you to Homer-Center Elementary and our wonderful learning community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence! It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound! Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!
