Fantastic Artastic

The Artastic Fair featured beautiful snowflakes, lovely holiday music and vendors aplenty with amazing things to purchase.  It also provided a time for the Horizons community to come together- buy some, talk some, buy a lot, talk a lot, and raise money for our school.  Heartfelt thanks go to Manzanita (Manzy) Fine, Allyson DeHart, Julie Alhowik and Moe Rose for organizing this event down to the last detail.  It was a huge success and these ladies breathed new artistic life into an annual event.  Thanks too, to the many volunteers who set up, cashed out and cleaned up, and as always to Zach & D for carrying it all.

Horizons Memorial for Elizabeth

Horizons Memorial for Elizabeth

Dear Horizon’s community,

Everyone is invited to remember and celebrate our dear teacher and friend Elizabeth Hershoff on Sunday, December 13 from 2-4 p.m. at Horizons.

Elizabeth loved the life she led and we hope you and your family will join us to remember and appreciate her. At this time when we are grieving we are so grateful for the opportunity to come together as a community. And our sincere gratitude and condolences extend to her family as well.

Here is a link to her obituary .

Did you know that every time you shop at Grand Rabbits toy store, Horizons gets money?  When you check out, tell the cashier to credit Horizons K8.  A percentage of your sale goes to the creation of “Bunny Bucks” and our teachers can use them to purchase classroom supplies.  Thanks!
