Come get your body mooo-ving in the morning!

Morning active recreation at Horizons takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from7:40 – 8:20 in the gym. Activities vary each day and depend largely on student input and number of students in attendance. On most days there will be an organized group game/activity such as soccer, ultimate frisbee, basketball, knock-out, relay races, wall ball, floor hockey or dodge-ball, among others. If a student does not wish to participate in the group game, they are free to use the stage or other half of the gym for individual activities such as shooting basketball, hula hooping or jump-roping. Student input is highly valued and students are encouraged to bring and share their own ideas for new games and activities!

Note: Please enter the gym from the entrance that faces the playground on the North side of the building. Thank you!

DPC Rep & DAC Rep Needed- Read on....

District Parent Council

The Boulder Valley District Parent Council (DPC) provides a monthly forum and lively exchange of ideas for all schools in Boulder Valley School District.

The DPC is made up of one representative from every school in the district. We meet once a month during the school year with the Superintendent of Schools along with a School Board member and discuss and examine timely and relevant topics that affect the students and schools of BVSD. Our meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to attend.

The DPC provides a truly unique opportunity for BVSD parents, staff, teachers, students and leadership of to exchange and share ideas and views in professional and open setting.

DPC meetings are held one Wednesday night of every school month at 6:30 p.m. in the PDC of the BVSD Education Center located at 6500 Arapahoe, Boulder, CO 80303

District Accountability Committee

The District Accountability Committee (DAC) is a legally constituted committee of representatives from the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). DAC representation includes at least one person involved in business in the community located within BVSD, and a parent, teacher, or administrator from each school within the district and serves in an advisory capacity to the BVSD Board of Education.

As per Colorado Revised Statutes 22-11-302, DAC meets monthly throughout the year and makes recommendations to the Board regarding district improvement planning and spending priorities, studying topics as jointly determined with the school board, and increasing parent engagement in the district and at schools. The complete responsibilities of DAC members are described in the D​AC bylaws​. 
 
​DAC values ongoing feedback from each school’s School Accountability Commitee (SAC) and provides training and information SACs can share with each school community.​
