Fire Up Your Feet!

We are experimenting with a new initiative called “Fire Up Your Feet!” This is a wellness program to help elementary school families be more active. Simply go to the website, register, and track your family’s activity during the month of October, and Horizons can win money to use for our playground or other active programs! Remember, parents and staff count too! Check it out at: Fire Up Your Feet!!!  And..BONUS…every time you walk, bike, scoot or hop to school, it can count toward Trip Trackers as well! Log your trips here too!

Quilt for Elizabeth

Horizons Community Group Project Meeting

We are making a Caring Quilt for Elizabeth–and we need your help!

(You don’t need to sew!)

Please join the Horizons Community Group next Friday, October 16th @ 8:30 a.m. in the Cafeteria to assemble, pin & if you are able, sew. We are thrilled that two quilters have volunteered to quilt our assembled pieces at no charge, but we need assistance to create the front and back pieces.

If you cannot attend this meeting, but have the ability to cut fabric, please contact Julie Dye, 720-839-9518, We will provide you with all the supplies and you just need to cut out pieces for assembly. Thank you, Horizons family!
