Thanks to Homer Foundation

Chapman School in Anchor Point was the recent recipient of a grant from the Homer Foundation through their KLEPS fund. This grant gives us an opportunity to purchase iPad minis for students in fifth-eighth grades. In 2012, Chapman School was awarded a legislative grant through Rep. Paul Seaton that supported the implementation of iPods for each student in first-eighth grades. The generosity of the Homer Foundation has allowed us to update these devices in our upper grades so that we can continue to provide high quality technology to our students.

We are grateful to the Homer Foundation and their KLEPS fund for their generous donation to Chapman School.  We believe that providing a wide range of learning tools to our students will give each of them the opportunity for academic success. This success is reflected in our ranking as the third highest performing school in the Kenai Peninsula School District. Our ability to provide high quality programs, such as our iPad program, is only possible through our relationships and community partnerships, such as the Homer Foundation. 

 To the Homer Foundation, thank you for all your efforts in supporting students and projects in our region. I also would like to thank those who donate to their causes.  Donations can be made at www.homerfoundation.org, or by mail to The Homer Foundation, PO Box 2600, Homer, Alaska 99603.
