The Other Side of Cannabis

Please join this FREE Parent/Community Night!

We will watch and discuss the documentary “The Other Side of Cannabis” that shows the impact of the current high THC marijuana on mental health, especially for young people.

This documentary shows information that has not been published otherwise and you will hear from experts around the country and what they are seeing as brand new developments around marijuana that we have not seen before the current high THC marijuana products.

If you want to be updated on what is happening in Colorado around the new marijuana products and their impacts especially on mental health please join and bring your whole family so you can continue the conversation afterwards.

Feel free to share this invitation and the attached flyer with anyone who you think might benefit.

Everyone is welcome to attend – parents, teens, adults, etc.

We will have a Creative Market hosted by Natural Highs teens with gifts, handmade items, CDs, and a Yerba Mate & Herb Bar with healthy alternatives to marijuana.

Please bring some cash and support young people’s creativity, art & businesses.

Do do the ADU...

Annual Data Update – Please complete by May 1st!
The BVSD-required Annual Data Update will be open in your Parent Infinite Campus Portal on April 15th, and we request that you complete this for each of your students by May 1st, so we have time to program the updated information for every student. This confirms your registration for the coming school year and is your opportunity to change any information currently on file for them, including emergency contacts, etc.  If your student has more than one household, the parent in the primary-designated household is responsible for completing this.  To access the ADU, log into your Parent Infinite Campus portal; you will see ADU on the lefthand index.  If you have any questions, please contact our Registrar at hope.nelson-roohr@bvsd.org.  Thank you.

A TOTALLY RADICAL, WICKED GNARLY AUCTION!

The auction committee (Antonia, Barb, Eden, Shelly, a sprinkle of Julies, some lime squeezing from Kelly, cheerleading from Hope and more!) would like to thank everyone involved in Saturday evening’s incredible community gathering–to the Rents, our very own musical rock stars, who gave us a huge gift of a fun and high-energy show, to the parents and teachers who attended, donated and supported this event, our school community is so grateful for your participation and our children will benefit directly from your generous contributions.
In addition to the silent and live auction, our goal this year was to raise $20,000 for musical instruments and programming at Horizons. Our “paddle raiser” reached $19,700! If you’d like to help us reach $20,000 or would like to make a general tax-deductible Moolah donation, you can donate through our website: https://horizonsk8.revtrak.net/
THANK YOU!
