The Year in Review
The 2014-2015 school year got off to a running start and we have quickly made it to the half-way mark. It is hard to believe that the holidays are upon us! It has been a wonderful semester and we have had many great "happenings" at Horizon thus far. We completed another successful Horizon Hustle, a fantastic Fall Festival, and thankful first-grade Thanksgiving, a busy holiday Elf-shelf and the chorus's melodic rendition of Crazy Christmas just to name a few. All of these things and many more have added to the amazing teaching and learning that students have been engaged in since August. We are extremely proud of the success of our students and the hard work and dedication of our teachers and parents!
