Parent Volunteers Needed

Looking for parent volunteers!

Our grade 5/6 film class will be filming on Thursday and Friday 1/30 and 1/31 at various places throughout the school. We are looking for 5-6 parent volunteers who can help supervise filming from 9:30-10:30. Might you have an hour in your day to help supervise a small group of student filmmakers? They will have a completed plan, storyboard (with camera angles and a script/props). We just need an adult with each group to supervise and keep time. If you can help in this capacity, please contact Lynn at lynn.pence@bvsd.org with the day(s) you are able to help out.

8th grade students hosting food drive....

Caitlyn Grindel, Sara Garber, Mackenzie Olson, Clara Gerlitz, and Emily Clemson are hosting a food drive to support homelessness in our community as part of their 8th-grade aperture project. All the food they collect will go to Community Food Share to help people who are homeless get back on their feet. Some things that would be great to donate are…

  • Canned food that hasn’t expired

  • Non-perishables

  • Rice/ whole grains

  • Dried food

  • Nut butters/nuts

There will be collection receptacles by the main entrance.  Thank you for your support! We hope to collect a lot to help the community.

How Government Works? Ask a Student!

7/8 students are here to remind you how our government works! 
Last semester in social studies we worked in collaborative teams to produce podcast episodes about how the government works. It was an intensive process, building skills in teamwork, project management, research, and communication, and alas, we are very excited to share our final product with you! You can find our collection of episodes here

READING TO END RACISM and POP LIBRARY’S FINAL WEEK

Horizons is grateful to the wonderful YWCA volunteers from the Reading to End Racism program who visited our classes yesterday and engaged students with books and conversation about various “isms.” Students reported important and thought-provoking lessons. Ask your child about their classroom conversation!

Also, please visit the Diversity & Inclusion Pop Up Library during its final week next week. There are several amazing books to check out! We will dismantle the library on Thursday afternoon to make way for the Pancake Breakfast. Any books not returned by Thursday can be returned to a basket in the front office in early February. Thank you for exploring these books with your students!
