Playground Expectations

As winter approaches, please help us review rules on the playground with your student. Students will need to leave the snow on the ground. Building a snowman is allowed, but snowball are not allowed. We also do not allow playing on the ice. General reminders for your students include no physical contact on the playground.

Expectativas del patio

Conforme se acerca el invierno, ayúdenos a revisar las reglas en el patio de recreo con su estudiante. Los estudiantes deberán dejar la nieve en el suelo. Se permite construir un muñeco de nieve, pero no se permite la bola de nieve. Tampoco permitimos jugar en el hielo. Los recordatorios generales para sus estudiantes no incluyen contacto físico en el patio de recreo.

It's Cold Outside

Please send a coat, gloves, and a hat to school with your child. Students will play outside and we will have recess outside everyday the temperature is 20 degrees or higher.

If your family is unable to provide a coat for your child, please contact our counselor, Jessica Adamson.

Está Frío Afuera

Envíe un abrigo, guantes y un sombrero a la escuela con su hijo. Los estudiantes jugarán afuera y tendremos recreo afuera todos los días, la temperatura es de 20 grados o más.

Si su familia no puede proporcionarle un abrigo a su hijo, comuníquese con nuestra consejera, Jessica Adamson.

Meet The Principal

Welcome to Horizon Elementary School! I am excited to be joining the amazing Horizon staff and eager to work and build strong partnerships with the families and students of our school. Learning should be fun and engaging. It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – teacher, students, and parents – are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges and curriculum goals in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

I have been a member of the Jerome Community and worked for Jerome School District for 22 years. While in Jerome, I have had the opportunity to be a technology teacher and guidance counselor at Jerome Middle School and a guidance counselor, IOT teacher, and Work-Based Learning Coordinator at Jerome High School. My passion is children and watching them develop their individual skills while bringing out their inner genius. I have 4 children ranging in ages from 7-18 and being a parent is the most rewarding challenge ever.

I believe every student is entitled to an equal and individualized education. Building relationships and providing structure are essential to meet this goal. In addition to a focus on student achievement and positive relationships, it is particularly important to me to make sure you and your child feel safe at school. If you ever have a concern or question about a specific situation or procedure, please do not hesitate to stop in, call, or email me to discuss any concerns or ideas.

We look forward to building a partnership with the Horizon families this year.

Wendy Ohlensehlen, Ed. S.
Principal, Horizon Elementary School
