Hands-On History

Peter & Lynn’s classes went back in time as earnest explorers appealed to the King & Queen for funds to sail to the New World.  This is what hands-on history looks like!photo 1 photo 2 (1)

Moolah Campaign Is Underway!

Moolah Campaign Is Underway!

The Horizons’ Moolah Fund Drive supports the school’s operating budget each year, helping to bridge the gap between what we receive in State funding and the actual cost of our program. This amount is on top of the classroom and field trip fees that each family contributes! The kind of education we provide – small classes, rich choices that support student interest, along with academic excellence – is expensive. Your support is vital in helping us to offer an outstanding K-8 progressive education for 21st Century learners.  This year, along with working to have each family contribute $350 per student, our largest priority is to get 100% participation in our campaign, so any amount from each family will go a long way!

Keeping The School Grounds Clean

Each week, a different class is responsible for cleaning our school grounds. By sharing in this responsibility, students practice respect for our environment and a sense of ownership of our surroundings.  This is Jeanne’s class with bags full of trash, doing their part in keeping our school grounds clean.FullSizeRender (8)
