A goodbye message from Bry

Dear Horizons Community,

As some of you may already know, I will not be returning for the 2019-2020 school year.  I am thankful for the opportunity to have been your PE teacher for the past two years and look forward to maintaining positive relationships with the whole community. I hope everyone has a wonderful summer vacation and a great next school year!

 

Sincerely,

 

Bry Wehr

Seeking Board Candidates

We have a one-year parent board member position to fill, and three parent seats for two-year terms.  If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the board of directors for the 2019-20 term, please submit a short biography, confirming your intention to fill the one-year position, to Lauren Tracey to be published in Skylines, and/or shared at Council on May 16th.

As we prepare for charter renewal, we have numerous opportunities to be creative and responsive in the continued evolution of our unique school. Board members work to ensure that the mission, vision, and strategic plan of Horizons is implemented. Horizons’ Board meets monthly for 2-3 hours, and occasionally for retreats for training and workshops. Board membership also requires involvement with one or more committees which meet monthly or as needed. We work collaboratively with faculty to guide decision-making.

Voting will occur at the May 16th board meeting. Please come to cast your vote. Thanks everyone!

Embrace The Awkward

EMBRACE THE AWKWARD:
Hello Families and Friends,
I’d like to invite you to join me in the HIKE FOR HOPE effort on Sunday, June 16, 2019 to raise awareness for suicide prevention and education.   The hike is 1.5 miles around the red rocks amphitheater and totally doable!
As you may already know, there are nationwide efforts raising awareness about mental health resources and suicide prevention.    I was lucky to attend the National Conference on Suicidology and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) volunteer training events this spring.
Although it may be awkward to talk about mental health and suicide, I’m willing to EMBRACE THE AWKWARD and talk with anyone wanting to learn more about suicide, prevention and statistics affecting our community.  Additionally, Mental Health Partners are leading an initiative to train 4098   individuals this year!
Our 7th and 8th grade students received a presentation from Colie’s Closet earlier this spring, learning new information and strategies to help protect each other along with ways to reach out if they feel someone needs some connection.  As always, anyone can use SAFE2TELL to let trusted adults know about a student concern.    I am also available to anyone wanting  to learn more about the hike, resources and insights from these recent professional development opportunities.
Yours in health & wellness,
Sherry
