Wesley Ray Elementary School has been awarded a $5,000 grant from International Paper’s Bogalusa Mill and the International Paper Foundation. Funds purchased Chromebooks in the classrooms at the school, which are incorporated into daily instruction. The students use them for classroom assignments, interventions, tutoring, and testing.

WRES provides all students with the necessary skills and mindset needed in order for them to become successful and productive citizens. The services we provide focus on all academic areas and allow our students to achieve at and above their level with the use of programs that remediate and challenge them daily.

The International Paper Foundation is one of the ways International Paper strives to reach its vision to be among the most successful, sustainable and responsible companies in the world. Started in 1952, the foundation annually provides millions in grants to 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations to address critical needs in the communities where its employees live and work.

Funding priority is given to programs related to its signature causes: education, hunger, health and wellness, disaster relief, and initiatives that improve the planet. For more information, visit ipgiving.com.
