Homer High School has Shortened Instructional Day January 26th



Homer High School has Shortened Instructional Day January 26th
 
January 26th is a shortened instructional day for Homer Schools. Several presentations and activities have been planned for the day at Homer High School. Students are reminded to bring their charged Chromebook and ear buds with them for the day’s activities.

After reporting to period 1 classes at 8:05 am for attendance, all students and staff will go to the auditorium for an all school assembly – Making Safe and Positive Decisions. This presentation will be led Traffic Safety Advocate Marianne Angelillo, who uses personal experiences to teach New Yorkers about the consequences of dangerous behavior on the road. Marianne Angelillo's journey began on Father's Day 2004, when her 17-year-old son, Matthew, was killed as a passenger in a high-speed car crash. Matthew, a popular honor student and athlete, planned to attend the United States Air Force Academy after graduation. The Academy awarded him an honorary membership in the Class 2009. Angelillo has spoken at school presentations and for traffic safety groups since 2004, hoping that sharing her family's story will spare other families similar tragedy. Several New York agencies have recognized her efforts. Angelillo also authored a book about her family's experiences titled Sharing My Stones. “The first time I was approached to speak about Matt's death, I decided that I would share my pain if it could help save another family from experiencing what we had," Angelillo said. "I discovered that in reaching out to teens and their parents, I was able to connect with Matt and use his life to educate others."
