Sponsorship is Growing!

As you walk down the main hallway of our school turn your heard to the right.  We have a brand new Sponsorship Board.  A number of businesses have already begun to sponsor Horizons auction.  We are advertising them on this board.  Please be sure to frequent these businesses and say thank you from the Horizons Community.

Need a sandwich?  Go to Boulder Organic Sandwich.

How about floor refinishing?  There is only one name- Magness Anderson Hardwoods

And of course, Dr Wong, the orthodontist who supports our school every year.

Please frequent these businesses.  the list will grow.

In fact, if you own a business or know anyone who does, please have them talk to Mike Belochi about sponsoring the auction.  The cost of sponsorship is reasonable and sponsors receive an amazing amount of promotion.

Diversity & Inclusion

As a reminder, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee will be meeting on Tuesday, January 19th at 3:45pm in the conference room.
As we did not meet in December, the agenda remains very similar to what is in the email below: As a quick recap we will discuss:
1) open enrollment
2) opportunities for the Feb and Mar A&S sessions
3) speakers/presenters for Learning Lunches
4) reviewing the 3/4 teacher job announcement and posting opportunities to attract more diverse candidates
Finally, over email, Aaron shared some articles that we may bring to Council. We may also want to consider ways to share these articles more broadly and/or providing updates in Skylines.
Please let me know if you plan to attend next week’s meeting.
Thanks!

Thank you Flippers & Flappers

A heartfelt thank you to the many volunteers who made our pancake breakfast a great success.  When I looked out from the kitchen, I could see folks standing.  It was very well-attended and so much fun!  Thank you for making it happen, whether you volunteered, or whether you volunteered to eat.

If you happen to have any photos, would you please send them in to me?

And, if you loaned us a skillet (bless you), it is in the cafeteria awaiting your pick-up.

Time to Ask Again

At our auction we hope to offer two wildly successful “clubs”.  The first is A Dessert of The Month Club.  Each participant will bake/create one dessert in the month of their choosing and the lucky winner will receive a dessert a month for a year.

The next club is The Wine of the Month Club.  Again, a lucky winner will receive a lovely bottle of wine once a month for a year.  Please consider buying a bottle of wine from our parent owned B-Town Wine & Spirits on Arapahoe and offering it to this club.

These will be great items to have at the auction.  How about joining a club?  Please contact Connie at:  turtletotebags@yahoo.com

The Art of Solicitation

Hmmmm!  Auction Solicitation, of course.  Please remember to have your generous donors fill out a donation form and bring it to the office, even if you have not yet received the item or certificate.

There are a number of solicitation letters in addition to our generic one that really reach out, connect, explain and request well.  If you would like any of these, please let Hope know.

So far we have some amazing items- A Weekend in Vail (hotel, athletic club & activities), A Day in Georgetown (restaurant and railroad), 3 days at the Lyons Folk festival, day passes for Disney Resorts and more.

We look forward to receiving your paperwork.  We are here to offer follow up, back up and support.  Thank you for soliciting donations to our gala auction.  It is going to be a blast!
