Congratulations to the Lady Hawks Basketball team for their 68-39 win over Loveland.  Great job ladies!!

Calling all Hawks!!  We will have a Spirit Bus going down to the Denver Coliseum to cheer on the Girls Basketball team against Regis this Friday night in the ELITE 8, 8:30pm playoff game.   Sign-up in the Main Office by the end of the day Thursday.  You must be at Horizon by 7:15 to ride the bus.  The only cost for you is getting into the game. Please note the following prices:  General admission is $9 and students from K-12 and seniors over 60 will be $7. No passes will be allowed.

Hawk readers: Now is the time to help the library select magazine subscriptions for next school year. The survey is on the library web site or come to the library to access it using the QR code at the front desk. Thanks for your input!

Hey boys of all grade levels, Student Government is hosting a Mr. HHS Contest.  If you think you’ve got what it takes to compete for the crown, then come to the Main Office and sign-up today.

You must have 95% or better attendance to attend Prom as of the beginning 2nd quarter.  Please check the list in the hallway across from the Dean's office. 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and helps students to be more alert, pay better attention in class and be sick less often.  Starting your day with a healthful meal goes a long way and Nutrition Services is here to help in that process.  Join us for breakfast here at Horizon each day and enjoy all the benefits it brings now and in the future.  Adams 12 breakfast includes a fruit or 100% juice everyday and is 100% whole-grain rich.

The RMASS “Zapping the SAT” prep seminar will be coming to Horizon on Wednesday, March 15th & Thursday, March 16st.  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 SAT Test coming in April.  For any questions on this SAT Prep opportunity – see Mrs. Neumann in the counseling office.

"Have you always wanted to take on a huge leadership role? Well four seniors are looking to pass on the responsibility of the Umbrella Project, an education-based program that helps eliminate offensive language including racial and derogatory terms used in our hallways. Now that it is part of the health curriculum here at Horizon, they are looking for more qualified students to run it next year. If you are interested, come to the main office and pick up an application, due by the 6th of March!
