Lunch Time Supervision
At Horning we are committed to have a safe, welcoming lunch environment. As a part of our efforts we would like to have capable, enthusiastic lunchroom supervisors in the cafeteria. Here is where our Horning Community needs your help. We are looking for supervisors to monitor the cafeteria during our 1st lunch, which takes place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:18am-10:48am and Wednesday 10:34am-11:04am. This is a paid duty, $18 an hour. If you are interested in supervising, please send an email of interest to Kenyell Hutchins @ firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information included. Please note, a background check is required prior to start date. Looking forward to working with you in the near future.
Spirit Wear Online Store is OPEN!!
From now until October 14th, you can order Horning spirit wear by visiting this site: SPIRIT WEAR. All orders are submitted and paid for in the online store and will be delivered directly to school approximately 3 weeks after the store closes. If you are unable to order and pay online, please contact Ms. Stark in the office at 262-970-3305.
There are quite a few new options so be sure to check it out! Don't forget Christmas is just around the corner and these would make great gifts! Let's show our Horning Pride and Go Hawks!

Feel free to contact us any time at email@example.com. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month in the iCenter (aka Library). Please join us!
At our September 13 meeting, we heard from Darren Clark, CFO for Waukesha School District, regarding the school improvement referendum; learned about the Rotary Club grant that will be funding family book club discussions (first one is Dec. 13!); previewed the Horning Spirit Wear store; and heard from Principal Blessington an overview of the “Community Lunch” program launched this year in conjunction with the house system. September minutes.
At our October 11 meeting, we’ll review the Horning calendar of events and work out dates for Site Council events, receive an update from Principal Blessington, and more. See October 11 agenda.
