The Horizons Fall Dance is an all school, family event! Wear your family friendly costume and come ready to DANCE! We’ll have face painting, courtesy of the Diplomats and a snack bar with beverages and treats, including gluten-free and peanut free snacks. Fall Dance is a success through parent involvement. Please consider donating a snack and signing up to help with decorating, clean up and chaperoning.
