MLK Day, Reading to End Racism, and the Diversity and Inclusion Pop-Up Library

MLK Day, Reading to End Racism, and the Diversity and Inclusion Pop-Up Library
As you enjoy the long weekend, the Horizons Diversity & Inclusion Committee invites you to spend some family time discussing the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There are numerous local events celebrating his life and contributions. This link shares what is happening throughout the weekend in Boulder: https://bouldercolorado.gov/community-relations/martin-luther-king-jr-day-celebration. And, this link provides information about Lafayette’s MLK, Jr. March for Peace and Celebration: https://cityoflafayette.com/Calendar.aspx?EID=7767&month=1&year=2020&day=20&calType=0
Next week, you can continue the conversation by asking your student about their classroom experience with the Reading to End Racism program, which will be visiting Horizons on Thursday, January 23. 
Finally, remember to visit the D&I Pop Up Library in the main hallway. There are several incredible books available for all grade levels and adults!

"Those Horizons Parents...One Day They Are Going To Kill Our Kids"

Sorry for the dramatic subject line.  This is actually a cut and paste from an email Lucas received from a concerned and worried neighbor.  Her email goes on to outline day after day of speeding and reckless drivers trying to shave a few minutes off of their time when dropping students off at our school.

Time and time again, we beseech parents to please drive consciously through the neighborhood, to obey speed limits and STOP signs and to not park in neighbors’ driveways.

We are asking again to please be good citizens and to be safe drivers.

Thank you!!

More info on Bogan Flats Campground:

Bogan Flats Campground stretches along the Crystal River in a valley of aspen groves, towering Ponderosa Pine, spruce, and willow. The setting is ideal for larger groups seeking recreation and relaxation in White River National Forest. Sites in the campground are widely spaced and offer a nice mixture of open and shaded spots, with several sites at the river’s edge. The group site is located away from the main campground, offering a more private location.
