Horizon High School
Monday,  december 9, 2013


You can help brighten someones holiday by purchasing a gift for a child in need! All you have to do is take an ornament off the giving tree in the main lobby and attach the ornament to the unwrapped gift. All gifts need to be dropped off in the main office by Monday December 16th.

All Students, Staff and HHS Community Members: GOT SHOES??? Bring your used shoes now through Friday to help those in the Philippines who desperately need shoes. A box is in the Lobby, outside the main office. Your generosity is appreciated!

What do your Infinite Campus account, your favorite movie, Instagram, and your friend's gaming system have in common? What if you could create some of the tech related systems and devices we enjoy and use every day? Check it out during an Hour of Code next week for Computer Science Education Week: create a game, app, or program during your free period or lunch. Head to the library web site for more details or see Ms. Poinier.

The kitchen will be open during finals for breakfast only. We will operate during our normal business hours of 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.  The kitchen staff wishes you luck on your big exams and a very safe and Happy Holiday Season. Thank you for your support. 

Horizon High School has once again implemented an attendance policy for students, grades 9-12 to be able to attend prom.  All Students wishing to attend prom are expected to maintain a minimum 95% attendance rate starting December 2, 2013 through April 11, 2014.  We are only monitoring unexcused absences and unexcused partial absences. 

Counseling News

ATTENTION JUNIORS AND SENIORS:  Are you one of those students who thinks they may not be ready for college immediately after high school?  Would you be up for a different type of rewarding experience that is a change of pace and something that looks great to put on a resume? Then a GAP YEAR might be just what you need!  You are invited to Peak to Peak Charter School on January 21 to learn about a variety of GAP YEAR activities, from AmeriCorp to internships in New York City! See the Counseling Office Bulletin Board for more information!

Seniors - Do you know where you are going to college? When you have received your acceptance letter and make your final decision, come to the counseling office and let us know so that we can get your college choice along with your senior picture up on the college bulletin board in the lobby!  Please report any and all scholarship offers to Ms. Jones in the Main Office.

Also Seniors, Any transcript that needs to be sent before (or during winter break) must be requested by Monday, December 9th.  No transcripts requested after December 9th will be sent.  You can check the status of your transcript request in Naviance.  If you have any questions, please see your counselor.
