Newspapers Needed

The 5/6 Team is seeking newspapers for a project that begins today. If you happen to have a stack that will be going to recycle later this week, might you consider dropping them off at one of the 5/6 classroom instead?

Innovation Learning is our new AfterCare

We are so pleased to have Innovation Learning as our new After Care program.

Innovation Learning offers scholarships.  They are also able to offer reduced rates for parents that qualify for state assistance. Please see Lucas to discuss eligibility.

As a result of parent feedback, we have worked closely together to increase flexibility and tailor the program to provide students with several aftercare options including recreational play, STEAM, enrichment activities, and long term projects based on interest. There is also an option to have students in aftercare for 45 minutes for a reduced rate of$8.00.  Innovation Learning can accommodate last-minute drop-ins.

We really look forward to partnering with Innovation Learning to provide top-notch after school activities.

We love our volunteers

Volunteering at Horizons

www.helpatschool.org

Horizons relies on parents to bring their creative thoughts and energies to our school to help, to teach, to assist and to add to our wonderful learning community.  There are a number of ways to volunteer and we encourage you to think about how you might best offer your time and talent. In order to volunteer, you have to be background checked.  There are two ways to do this.  Click here.

We use a website called helpatschool.org to sign up for volunteer opportunities.  Check it out!

Other committees that always need assistance are:

  • Fundraising & Development- interested? Email Lucas

Events that will require volunteers are:

  • Harvest Dance – an all school dance in October
  • Artastic Fair – a huge makers fair in our very own gym…great for holiday shopping
  • Pancake Breakfast- come make, and enjoy breakfast with a few hundred friends

The Horizons Community Group and Classroom Liaisons keep our school moving.  This page describes these dynamic volunteers and we hope you will consider helping Horizons by assisting and attending meetings and events.

Horizons Council Meetings are held the third Thursday of most months.  This is the school’s collective voice and you are a member and you have a voice.  Please keep an eye open for Council Meetings on our school calendar. Council agendas will be sent to you via Skylines.  Parents provide snacks, teachers provide drinks and childcare is provided. We hope to see you there.

Horizons Board Meetings are open for observation to all stakeholders.  Horizons also has a Finance Review Committee that meets monthly.  If you are interested or have a skill to share in the financial upkeep of our school, please contact Lucas.

A note from MO, our new PE Teacher

For PE Class: 

Attire: Please have your child wear comfortable fitting and safe clothing for active play and moving.  Athletic shoes on PE days allow your child to participate fully. Safety and full participation are very important and can be limited without proper clothes and shoes. Boots, shoes with heels, flip flops, open toe shoes/sandals, and crocs are discouraged. As a general rule, toes need to be covered, the shoe needs to be snug to the foot, and has tread for running, skipping, galloping, shuffling, pivoting, jumping, climbing and stopping. 

Participation: ​If a child is in school, it is assumed that they are healthy and capable of participating in all PE activities.  Please send a note or email if your child needs to be excused from PE due to injury or illness so we can have an alternative plan during class time. Please provide a doctor’s note for extended circumstances. If you have any questions, please contact me, moreno.robbins@bvsd.org
