Seeking new board members

The Horizons’ Board of Directors needs you!  Please consider volunteering to serve on the board of directors for the 2019-21 term. Our board supports the mission and vision of Horizons K-8, Inc. We have had three community members step forward already, and would like you to know that the invitation is still open to be a candidate.

It is an exciting time to be a member of Horizons’ Board of Directors. As we prepare for charter renewal, we have numerous opportunities to be creative and responsive in the continued evolution of our special school. Please consider working on behalf of all of our students and preserving what we highly value about our unique teacher-led school.

Board members work to ensure that the mission, vision, and strategic plan of Horizons is implemented. Horizons Board meets monthly for 2-3 hours, and occasionally for retreats for training and workshops. Board membership also requires involvement with one or more committees which meet monthly or as needed. We work collaboratively with faculty to guide decision-making.

If you are interested in being considered by members of our community, please submit a short biography to Lauren Tracey to be published in Skylines. Voting will occur at the May 16th board meeting. Please come to cast your vote. Thanks everyone!

Mentors Needed -- Please Read!

It is never easy to transition to a new school.  We would love it if each new family had a point person to help them understand our events and activities. That is what our mentor program is all about.  A small time commitment can make a big difference to an incoming family.  We provide a script of important facts/terms/dates for you to share with a new family. We have a fun Meet your Mentor event in August.

Hello, Horizons community.

Walk/Bike to School Week Starts Next Week!

Earth Day is Monday, April 22, and to celebrate, Horizons will participate in BVSD’s bike/walk to school week! Bike to school DAY is Wednesday, April 24 and the Horizons Student Green Team is hoping to get as much participation as possible! Not up for biking? You can walk from just .25 miles away (like from the anchor on the north side of the park) and it counts! Be sure to register for Walk or Bike to School Day prizes at the BVSD bike to school website. Do it for the prizes, do it for Trip Tracker dollars, or do it because it’s a great way to celebrate Earth Day and have some fun!
