W.O.L.F. Sanctuary: Saturday, Oct 22 5-6 pm

For 27 years, a Colorado-based nonprofit, W.O.L.F. Sanctuary, has been at the forefront of rescuing captive-born wolves and wolf dogs from across the country.

You can help W.O.L.F. continue its Mission of Rescue, Sanctuary, and Education. There is no such thing as a big, bad wolf; October 22, Saturday, 5-6 pm at The Dairy. Come and meet a LIVE WOLF ambassador!

W.O.L.F. has been a haven for hundreds of canines from fur farms, shelters, illegal operations, unethical tourist attractions, and abandonment. W.O.L.F. has been vital to placing hundreds of animals across the United States to find haven through their Rescue Mission.

W.O.L.F. now has an incredible venture in front of them — a new sanctuary with more than 160-plus acres in Colorado’s Red Feather Lakes. Currently, home to 30 captive-born wolves and wolf dogs, W.O.L.F.’s new location will offer spacious state-of-the-art habitats and the opportunity to be open to the public for educational tours for the first time since its origination. Our dream is becoming a reality as the organization continues to build the necessary infrastructure on the property and plans to welcome its four-legged furry residents to their new homes by the end of 2022.

Come and meet our wolf ambassador.

5-6 pm

Join Us For Coffee Connections!

Join us Friday morning (10/7) after drop off till 9:30 for Coffee Connections!

Lucas will be joining us for a casual conversation about what makes Horizons special. If you have ever wondered about all the things you may hear, yet, not know what it may mean, this would be a great conversation to join in. Why do we have a Council? Why do we value experiential learning? Just to name a few. Bring you questions!

In addition to casual conversation, we will offer delicious coffee from Heady Coffee, and treats brought by 7/8 parents.

Each month, HCG asks different grade levels to bring in the treats for Coffee Connections. We hope many of you will join us every month, as conversation topics vary and are geared towards parents with children at all grade levels.

We could use a couple more 7/8 parent volunteers to bring yummies in this week. Thank you!!

Parents - enter the HK8 lottery for tables, carts and other supplies!

HK8 parents generously donated funds to purchase tents, tables, chairs, carts, chains and locks to enable outdoor learning during the pandemic. THANK YOU for making outdoor learning possible during this challenging time!

These days, the materials are no longer being used, and the school does not have room to store them long-term. Since parents purchased these materials, we will conduct a LOTTERY to get items to parents who can use them. We will donate or sell leftovers. (Note: the large tents will not be a part of this lottery, they will be sold to support the school’s annual fund.)

To enter the lottery, complete this Google Form no later than 3pm on Thursday October 13. All parents are eligible to enter. (If you can, please coordinate to submit one entry per household). Lottery winners will be listed on the eastern (Kindergarten) outside door by 8:15am on Friday, October 14.

Winners will need to pick up their materials in the gym either 12:45-2:00pm on Friday, October 14 or 8:00-8:30am on Tuesday, October 18. We have to clear the gym of materials, so unclaimed items will be donated or sold. Any questions, contact sarah.wise@colorado.edu.
