March 2023

Dear Horizon Families,

Our seven weather days have played havoc with our school schedule. Beginning Monday, March 6, our bell schedule will adjust by four minutes earlier, and door 2 will unlock four minutes earlier. We will open door 2 and door 10 (for our walkers) at 7:26am (instead of 7:30am). We will start classes at 7:36am (instead of 7:40am). The rest of the school days will stay the same.

For families who are dropping off by vehicle, our drive thru will run from 7:26am to 7:36am. Bussing schedules will not change. Our bus students have been getting to school right at 7:28am to 7:30am so that will still work.

Beginning March 6, 2023:

M, T, W, and F: 7:36am-2:40pm

Th: 7:36am-1:30pm

Our movie day is Friday, March 17. We are heading to the theater for The Amazing Maurice, rated PG. An updated permission slip will be coming home next week from teachers with the new movie title and movie date. It should be a fun day before our spring break!

We appreciate you, Horizon families!

Mrs. Kelly

traveling art exhibit

Horizon welcomed the "Frida Kahlo Traveling Art Exhibit" into the art room this week. The art room was transformed to give students an art museum experience. They began by learning all about Frida Kahlo's life and then entered the art museum to explore her works.

Playground notes

Greetings Hawks,

Although Spring is just around the corner, the snowy season is still upon us so please remember to continue wearing your snow pants and boots outside so that you can play on the non-blacktop part of the playground.

The snow hill is such a fun place to play but remember to play safely. Let's continue to keep our hands to ourselves, refrain from throwing snow, and slide down one at a time. Always remember that your playground teachers are there to help keep you safe so if there is a conflict that you are not able to resolve on your own, please let us know. We are always happy to help!

Finally, take a quick look in our lost and found to make sure you have all of your belongings.


Your playground team
