Erath High "Pride News!"

2015 Erath 4th of July "Giving Back to the Community" recipients. 

Each year the Erath 4th of July Association works diligently to host the town's annual fun filled family festival. Not only does the group bring this anticipated event to the community, they've always turned around to "give back" the community  in various ways. In the past, this hard working group has donated to the Acadian Museum, the Town of Erath, to various local groups in need, and to the schools.

Again this year, all four schools were offered the opportunity to complete grants to apply for their school needs.  During the fall and winter, all four schools submitted grants with specific needs. The week of February 24th, the Erath 4th of July Association announced that the four Erath schools were their 2015 "Giving Back to the Community" recipients.

All four Erath area schools were given $1000 in grant funding to be spent on earmarked projects submitted to the organization.  Upon receiving grants, the group decided to help with funding for these schools projects. 

Erath High and Erath Middle earmarked their funding toward purchasing technology equipment for students.  Dozier Elementary who already had a technology plan in place and was  looking to raise funding to replace outdated computers will add this funding to that earmarked computer project they began in the fall. Their plan of action is to purchase Windows 7/8 student computers.  LeBlanc Elementary's grant stated they were interested in purchasing a student microphone system.

On Friday, February 27, 2015, the four local school Principals were on hand to accept their grant money from Erath 4th of July duo, President Robert B. Vincent and Treasurer Claudette Lacour. The leaders who attended the grant donation session included,  Karla Toups from Dozier Elementary, Marc Turner from Erath High, Sandy Huval from Erath Middle and Dawn Amy from LeBlanc Elementary.
