February 10 is a SCHOOL DAY for Horizons

Although Horizons tries to sync up with the BVSD calendar, sometimes we are in school having regularly scheduled classes when BVSD is closed for classes.  This is mostly due to the extra time we take with hour long conferences, which are of great benefit to parents and students alike.

Horizons will have a regular school day on February 10th.  Thank you!

Drums Needed

The 1st/2nd and 3rd/4th grade teams are looking for a variety of small and medium sized drums to use in classes mid-February through mid-March.  Possibilities include (but are not limited to) 0523-music-djembe-deepcarve2-600x600, Bongos, and Conga drums.

Please let Aubrey (aubrey.demmon@bvsd.org) know if you have an instrument you can lend.  We promise to be careful and return them after March 10th.  Thank you!

Dear Families,
You should have recently received a communication from Boulder Valley School District with a letter explaining the timeline for state testing this year along with procedures for opting out of this test if you so desire.  Tracking these for the school last year was very time consuming and BVSD has come up with a solution for this that is outlined in the letter.  Please take the time to read this letter and follow the instructions as it will make a big difference for us here internally.  HERE is the link to the letter in case you missed it.
This communication is not meant to advocate one choice or the other, but to simply let you know about the process so that we can save time internally tracking all of this.
If you have questions, please let us know.
Thanks so much for your attention to this,
