8th Grade Adventure

Horizons 8th graders spent the week experiencing the wonders of Washington, D.C. while investigating questions about difficult truths from our past and present, whose voices are missing in the narrative, and what responsibilities we have in the keeping and telling of stories. Pictured here are students meeting with Congressman Jared Polis on the steps of the Capitol to discuss his role and thoughts on our essential questions.pic

APERTURE NIGHT....This is a 'don't miss' event

Horizons Parents:  Put Aperture Evening on your calendar!

8th Grade Aperture Evening

Wednesday May 10, 2013 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM

The Event: The 8th Grade Aperture Project is a culminating representation of the knowledge and skills that our middle schoolers have gained during their years at Horizons K-8 School. This is the 8th grade experience where they have moved beyond the walls of our school to explore various realms of self-directed learning. During this Aperture Evening event, 8th grade students will formally present their projects to students, parents, mentors, teachers, and community members.

A Myriad of Projects! Over the years, students have explored everything from building their own musical instruments, learning a new language, making jewelry, choreographing an original dance, writing a novel, creating a sculpture piece (that is part of our school still today), to stained glass and many more creative activities!  Please come and support our young people in their hard work and endeavors and have a fun evening as well!

Not Just an 8th Grade Event!  Aperture Evening is an entertaining get-together of learning, exploration, and creativity for all age students and parents…  not just middle schoolers. If you have an elementary child please bring them to see what a dynamic independent learning opportunity awaits them in Horizons middle school (and perhaps be inspired for a new talent or hobby as well!)
