HOUR OF CODE

During the next few weeks, many students at Horizons will use different code languages including block code, python, to solve puzzles, create games, animations, drawings, and debug existing code as part of a global movement called Hour of Code that introduces tens of millions of students worldwide to computer science. Students are typically very engaged in and enthusiastic about coding. If you would like to code with your student, you can find activities on the computer lab webpage or at Hour of Code

Help us keep our unhoused friends warm....

Last evening, many parents, students, and staff joined together to knit hats.  Lucas, our Head of School and his family were here to instruct and encourage us. The evening was a huge success!

If you made or are making a hat and would like to donate it to our unhoused friends, please bring it to the office. We will make sure it gets to where it needs to go.  Thanks so much.

Thank you, Jaime & Welcome new paras

Jaime Schlomberg has decided to pursue another career opportunity and will no longer be serving as the Finance Manager at Horizons. We thank Jaime for her service to Horizons and wish her the best. We are working to find a replacement for Jaime and will keep you in the loop with updates. In the interim, Joan will be handling much of Jaime’s duties, including payroll.

Please welcome Vinaya Williams and Mia Seymour.  Mia has already begun as a para in Dante’s 3/4 class.  Vinaya will be working as a K-5 Sped Para.  We are so happy to welcome them to our Horizons community.

Coffee Connections is this Friday

Coffee Connections Friday 12/6: Sanitas High School
Join us for delicious Paul’s Coffee and a snack this Friday, 12/6 at 8:30am in the cafeteria. We’ll have speakers from Sanitas High School, a new charter school planning to open in Boulder. They’ll give updates on the status of their charter,  what the school’s curriculum will look like and answer any questions we have about the school. This talk is in no way an endorsement of this high school, but it is a chance to learn more about a new option that may be available in the years to come. Hope to see you there!

Come get your treats at the Artastic Bake Sale

On Friday, December 6th, the school will be hosting the Artastic bake sale outside the gym. Inside the gym there will be many artisans who have set up tables and are selling their own works of art. Right outside of the gym there will be a bake sale run by 5th and 6th graders. The bake sale will run from 11:00 to 2:00 (or until we sell out) and will have a variety of treats including cakes, cookies, pies, brownies, donuts, and allergy-friendly treats. The money from the bake sale will be donated to Save the Children (https://www.savethechildren.org).  We hope you will come to the gym to enjoy the bake sale and amazing pieces of artwork.
