Book & School Supply Drive

screen-shot-2017-03-15-at-30931-pm

Dear Horizons Parents, Families, and Staff,

My name is Chloe Wozniak.  I go to Horizons K-8 school and am currently in Lynn´s 5th grade class.  This year the ⅚ classes are doing a four week project called Learning Without Walls (LWW).  Learning Without Walls is a self directed learning project.  For my project I decided to help others and include my love of books.  I wanted to have a book and school supply drive at my school.  So I looked at many organizations and decided to donate to I Have a Dream Foundation.  I thought this organization is very inspirational and I liked how they were willing to take any donations.

The  book and school supply drive is being held May 1st- May 12th  (the first two weeks of May).  All donations will be brought to school and put in the boxes that say ¨Book and School Supply Drive¨ and will also say facts about I Have a Dream Foundation and my Learning Without Walls project.  These boxes will be put in front entrance (front foyer).  Lightly use preschool- high school aged books, brand-new school supplies, and any working computers or I-pads will be very well appreciated.

Dear Families,

We want to fill you in on additional changes for next year as they come in.  Nichole, currently teaching 1st and 2nd grade, has decided to make a move to Nevada with her partner in February of 2018.  Beth Coleman, currently teaching kindergarten, will be moving to this 1st and 2nd grade classroom.  They will job share the position for the first semester to support the transition and then Beth will be the ongoing 1st and 2nd grade teacher.  We will be posting the opening for the half day kindergarten position this week and will hire for this role in May.  

Thank you for letting me know if you have any questions.
