A Message From the Diversity Committee

Do you have books with diversity or inclusion themes that your kids have outgrown and that are crowding your bookshelves? The Horizons Diversity and Inclusion Committee would welcome your donations! The books will then become part of our Pop Up Lending Library coming in January. Please leave any books you are willing to donate or lend in the basket in the front office.

On Monday, December 4, two students from the CU INVST program, which focuses on social and environmental justice, will join us for a learning lunch. It should prove an interesting learning opportunity for 5/6 and 7/8 students!

Colorado Gives Day is December 5th!

Dear Horizons families,

Colorado Gives Day is December 5th is a statewide movement to increase philanthropy and “Give where you live!” We invite you and your family to practice philanthropy and support Horizons K-8 School tomorrow!

Horizons K-8 is a remarkable place for children to learn and grow. This week we are bursting with pride as we introduce new families to our school during open enrollment tours, and help others understand the relationships and experiences that help students become leaders, innovators, and community contributors.

In a time when school budgets are waning, you can support our programming that keeps joy and curiosity alive. Each year we aim to close the financial gap with a requested donation of $375 per student. Your donation of any amount supports the purchase of learning materials, educational specialists and artists-in-residence, as well as science equipment and art materials, and experiential learning opportunities.

Please explore donation options at Consider passing the opportunity along to grandparents, and other family or friends as well!

Practicing gratitude just takes a moment. Thank you for supporting our joyful, curious learners and brilliant educators with your generous gift, choosing to give where you live, and as always, thank you for being a part of the Horizons community!
