November Bus Of The Month: The Homer Central School District Bus of the Month for the month of November has been awarded to the students on Route 19 with driver Mr. Brian Florio! Mr. Florio nominated his students for improving their behavior on and off the bus by waiting safely at the bus stop, crossing safely, and taking their assigned seat without being reminded. Each student also improved upon using an appropriate tone of voice while on the bus. Mr. Florio commented that "each student has made progress in improving their behavior during the a.m. and p.m. bus runs!" Each student will receive a certificate and a pizza party during the month of December for demonstrating Blue PRIDE and making a positive effort to make their bus safe! Congratulations to these students and driver Mr. Brian Florio!
Congratulations To All Of Our Fall Student-Athletes:
Special recognition to the Boys' Cross Country team who were league champs, and to Grant S. and Teddy M. for qualifying for the NYSPHSAA state track meet.
Additionally, congratulations to the Homer Varsity football team, earning a fifth straight league championship and our school's fifth Section II Class B Championship as well. The team was ranked sixth in the November NYS poll. After the 11/26 state championship game, the ranking may move up as the team handed Class C Champion Skaneateles their only loss of the year. Recognition also goes to Coach Podsiedlik and his coaching staff, once again named the Class B West Division Coach and Staff of the Year for the fifth time in a row.
3rd Grade Class Tested Breakout EDU: Students in Miss Streeter and Mrs. Higgins' 3rd grade class tested out the Breakout EDU kits this month. As part of their Halloween celebration, the class had to "escape" from the monster's house before they were turned into a monster mash. Using reading, math, and problem-solving skills, they were able to break out of the box and earn a classroom reward. They've already started asking about when they can do their next breakout!

Thank You From The Local Food Pantry: Thank you so much for your generous donation to our church's food pantry. This is our largest food drive ever! I thought you might like to see the picture below. Food pantry night is Wednesdays and we were just about empty. We are never able to give out things like stuffing and cake mix, so that will be a huge treat.
Thank you for all you do for this community.
