Horizon High School has once again implemented an attendance policy for all students going to prom.  However, grades 9 &10 must be invited to prom by an upper classman to be able to attend prom.  Students wishing to attend prom are expected to maintain a minimum 95% attendance rate starting October 19, 2015 through April 21, 2016.  We are only monitoring unexcused absences and unexcused partial absences. 
Please make sure you call the Attendance line at 720-972-4597 to excuse your students.

Attention Horizon Hawks,
National Honor Society is hosting Horizon's first ever Ping Pong Tournament for the American Heart Association on March 30th in the loft here at school! Registration will be from March 17th-March 25th! Come pick up your forms in the main office and bring them to the student center along with a registration fee of $5 during Periods 4-7. There will be both a Singles and Doubles bracket, so grab your friends and join NHS to help raise money and awareness for the #1 leading cause of death in the United States; Heart Disease!


The RMASS “Zapping the ACT” prep seminar will be coming to Horizon on March 30th & 31st.  For an opportunity to participate in this awesome two-day after school seminar, you must see Mrs. Bell or Mrs. Neumann in the counseling office to sign up for a spot.  The cost of this two-day seminar is usually $89 – but Dr. Shadwell will be paying $50 of the $89 for the first 100 students who sign up – so it will cost you only $39.  Don’t pass up this great opportunity to get “prepped” for the ACT Test coming in April. Sign up for the seminar in Counseling.
