P.S. from the Carnival

The Carnival was lots of fun.

And… $55 kicked back to us in donations from the Farmer Girl food truck.  They donated 10% of the profits back to the school.

**WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW**

Shoe Drive – If you have not yet noticed, there is a box in the front of the school with a sign that says DONATE OLD SHOES HERE.  Please donate to this worthy cause.  Slightly worn (no holes please) are appreciated!

PAYBACK BOOKS  It is time to return or buy the Payback book(s) that your student brought home.  For $20, you will make your money back quickly with amazing coupons for restaurants, retail stores, movies, recreation and skiing.  Horizons gets 50% of the profits.  If you would like to keep the Payback book send in a check made out to Horizons K8 for $20.00, and, if not, please return the book.

SCHOOL ON MONDAY.  While BVSD will be taking Monday, 10/10 off, Horizons will have a good ole’ regular Monday with all regularly scheduled classes.  See you then!!!

Making A Difference.  Horizons students in all grades will be participating in this special learning time, on Fridays, focusing on how we make a positive difference.  A number of the classes involve cross-grading so the students get to work along older and younger buddies.

Please ask your child(ren) what MAD class they are in. Some topics are: PeaceJam Juniors, The Green Team, Celebrating Our Differences, Protect The Animals and Worms!Worms!Worms!

Arts & Sciences continue.  Grades 1-4 are enjoying movement-oriented Arts & Sciences in the afternoon.  Ask your student about what they are taking and how it is going.

Finance Review Committee.  The Horizons Finance Review Committee meets monthly, with the next meeting being Tues 10/11 at 4 PM.  If you are interested in attending, this meeting is open to our community.

Horizons Board Meeting.  Horizons Board is comprised of faculty and parents. In these monthly meetings, members discuss topics pertaining to school operations and goals. The next meeting will be Thursday, 10/13 at 6 PM. If you are interested in attending, this meeting is open to our community.
