Horizons Directory at helpatschool.org

Dear Horizons Parents,

Many of you have been inquiring about when our all-school directory will be distributed.

This year Horizons will be using HelpAtSchool.org to host our online parent student directory.  Please be on the lookup for an email from HelpAtSchool.org inviting you to opt-in or opt-out of the directory.  This directory contains names, emails and phone numbers but not street addresses.  The email should be self-explanatory but if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the school office.

We will also be using HelpAtSchool.org as our one-stop-shop for parent volunteer opportunities at the school, so while you are there please visit the Sign-Ups page to see if there are any ways you might like to help at Horizons! Teachers will be setting up volunteer sign-ups shortly.

We welcome your feedback as we try this new approach to our directory and volunteering.

Thank You,

Hope Nelson-Roohr
Horizons K8 Registrar

Be on the look out for an email from Helpatschool.org

Goodbye Friends! Keeping it safe after school...

We need your help to make afterschool pick-up easy and safe for all!
Our driveway, parking lot and corner grassy field is a busy, busy place. We’ve increased the number of teachers outside after school.  Supervision ends at 3:40!
1. Please help students maintain a safe and pleasant after school environment by playing safely — no tackling, or rough housing please!
2. Make room for pedestrians large and small, young or elderly: Ride bikes, and other wheeled conveyances once you’ve left the sidewalks adjacent to school.
 3. Play on the playground structures only with parent supervision after 3:40. We want everyone to find their parents and guardians.
 4.  Help your child know your after school plan. What’s your family’s meeting place? 
 5.  Want to hang out, chat, and let the kids play? Please hang out and play at beautiful Burke Park!  Teachers will gently remind families to move to the park and off school grounds.
6. Please be mindful in our busy driveway and parking area and don’t use your cell phones unless you are parked.
7. Idle cars generate toxic fumes for our kids’ (and adults’ ) lungs. Be a breath of fresh air — don’t idle. Better yet, park and walk to campus!
 7. At 3:40, teachers will escort children to Aftercare at Horizons.

Individual Student Reports from Spring 2017 State Testing Now Available

Last spring, elementary, middle and high school students participated in the Colorado Measures of Academic Success, or CMAS state-mandated tests.  Third through ninth graders took mathematics and English language arts tests  that were developed by a multi-state consortium, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers or PARCC.  Fifth, eighth and eleventh graders also took a science test.  Additionally, fourth and seventh graders took a social studies test if their school was selected to participate.  This was the third time the students took the new math and English language arts tests and the fourth time for science and social studies, based on new content standards.

These reports are available in hard-copy for current 4th-12th graders. Copies of your student test results will be sent home during the last week of September. If you prefer to pick up your copy of the test results directly, please contact the Horizons office no later than September 27th, otherwise please expect your child to bring home test results in an envelope after the 27th.  It is possible that individual student reports will become available in the Infinite Campus parent portal later this fall.  If and when results become available in the parent portal, a message from the district will be sent directly to parents.
